Maggie's mom is writing this review for Concerta:
Maggie is an outgoing, bright, smart, 8 year old. It was a big decision to start her on a medication for her ADHD. As a mom and a Registered Nurse I recognized from about the age of 3 years that Maggie was overly active and impulsive. We held off on meds until middle of first grade. When it was apparent that her impulsive behavior may impair her social and most importantly educational relationships would be damaged. We started on Concerta and saw an immediate improvement in her schoolwork, attention span, and impulsivity. Very few side effects were noticed, mostly appetite suppression, and very occasional mild headaches and headaches. I would recommend to other mothers to ask their doctor about Concerta for their child with ADHD.
