My 7yr old son is currently taking 18mg of concerta for ADHD and his Dr increased his dose to 36mg but I didn't like how he acted/ no appetite on the higher dose. I was doing my own research and saw that there is another dose in between 27mg. How come my Dr wouldn't have increased his dose to that instead of 36mg? Has anyone put their child on 27mg or is taking that dose of 27mg?
Thank you for your question and welcome to ADHDCentral.com.
This is a question that you will need to ask directly to your doctor. Have you made your doctor aware of the side effects of the higher dose for your son?
I would contact the doctor and discuss this issue. He or she would be best able to answer your question.
