Dear Concerned Mother,
Concerta can cause tics; depending on their severity it may be worth discussing it with your prescribing doctor. The tics as well as other side effects you mention are typical of Concerta and do lessen or go away completely in some cases.
Since Concerta and Ritalin are both stimulants, perhaps discussing Strattera with your prescribing doctor may be an option. It comes with its own set of side effects, though. Remember that the side effects should not out weigh the benefits of the medication.
