Q.

CONCERTA IN SYSTEM ON " off"  WEEKENDS

Hi Expert. I am very concerned, as I have just read in one of the other posts number 50 infact - your response: that " Even though she does not take Concerta on the weekends, it is still in her system."  I am not disputing the fact, but I was told by 2 Paediatric neurologists and 1x psychiatrist, that after 12 hours, the Concerta is COMPLETELY out of your system??Can you substantiate your statement, I would just like to find out more.

Dear Confused,

Perhaps it was poor phrasing on my part: Concerta will not, to my knowledge, be untraceable after 12 hours despite the effects having worn off. Furthermore, as this post was regarding anxiety, which Concerta can heighten, the anxiety is unlikely to reduce merely because Concerta is not being taken.

Kind regards,
Delia
