Concerta and stress

If there is a post then I am sorry.

This is my 4th week on it. I was doing ok for the first 2 weeks, but since this month has been hell for me medically I have been stressed out. It has been less effective as my stress level rises.

I am restless and wanting food/drink more after 12 hrs. I noticed it this week.

Or am I crazy
I lack social skills- short,single,nice,loser guy

Re: Concerta and stress

I was put on Concerta for three months and I've had a complete mental breakdown over that time, I don't think it gives you any time to relax and unwind, I lost my appetite almost completely except after it wore off and then I'd be realy hungry and after three months I was put on two weeks of nights and I lost it altoghether when I went back on days, been off work since, I'm back on Equasium now and I'm getting back into sleeping properly and eating again

Re: Concerta and stress

I've noticed that concerta doesn't work good when I'm stressfull. Did experienced that? I think that's because of cortisol's negative effect on dopamine.

Re: Concerta and stress

Likely because these medications activate the fight or flight response and when stressed it may be pushing you over the edge on those hormones.. i.e too much norepinephrine/adrenaline
