One trick to extend the hours of stimulant benefit is to add 5 or 10 mg of regular Ritalin when the Concerta is wearing off. Concerta can't be broken up due to it's high-tech Gortex like delivery system. My 16 yo has had excellent response to Concerta (inattentive ADD). We've never had to do the add-on, but have had it available as a back up. Most people (excluding myself) need to function more than 10-12 hours a day. BTW, my daughter just received an award for having the highest GPA in her high school. Eighteen months ago we weren't even sure she would make it through high school. She was unhappy because she couldn't concentrate enough to do her work. Talk about medical miracles. I don't have anything to say to people who are down on prescribing stims for kids who need them. Look at the results!
Sorry for getting off of the subject, but we do need a few sucess stories to keep us going.
