I did not like Metadate CD, which I think is just like Concerta, because it began to wear off after 9 or 10 hours (like the package insert said it would). I'm going to try Methylphenidate SR (slow release) instead: one dose when I wake up, another about 2 in the afternoon, so I'm covered for 16 hours or so.

> thanks! what do you think about Concerta wearing off after about 10 hours? I know its half-life is 12 hours, but I will need something that lasts a good 12-14 hours to handle "real life" eventually. :) If I up the dose to 27 mg., does that extend the half-life as well?
