I did more research on this and finally discovered and got diagnosed that I am actually " high functioning Autistic" otherwise known as Aspergers Syndrome. I am not suggesting you stop your meds but suggest you do some more research into this as most people are misdiagnosed with ADHD when they are really Autistic and this could apply to you. People with Aspergers Syndrome also have ADHD like symptoms and other conditions like depression and anxiety that coexist with it. Taking Concerta as prescribed should not affect your mental health but try stay away from alcohol while taking these meds and good luck... Not what you were looking for?
