I've recently started taking Concerta to try and help with my ADD. I was wondering what some of the effects people have had. I don't seem to have a great effect on my true mental ability, just seem to be hyped up, but not in a caffeinated way. That, and I believe I've noticed that it tends to make me feel more emotional. I can find myself allowing thoughts to well up and almost push me to crying (for the record, I'm the kind of person who all but never cries). It's really odd. I was wondering if anyone else had had this effect? Honestly, I'm pretty close to stopping using it and trying something else, but I don't want to become a pill-jumper. I HATE taking meds at all, but I know/understand that it can help me.
