10 days in, no good effects?

I've been taking Concerta for 10 days now. The first five doses were only 18 mgs and then 36 mgs. The first day was really bad. I couldn't focus for more than 30 seconds, I had pounding headaches, my appetite was erradic, and I felt really tired all day. Since then, it's gotten better but I find myself more unfocused than before, more tired throughout the day, and unable to sleep. My sport requires a lot of focus, but since starting Concerta my performance has gone way down.

I've heard that sometimes it takes a week to start helping, but after 10 days, I'm not sure it is helping. I have an appointment soon. Should I ask to change, or does anyone think it'll eventually help?
