Concerta Review: Medicine for your brain
Well, our first thoughts about Concerta was that this wasn’t our typical nootropic review. Concerta is a certified medication that is approved in the US and in several countries across the world to treat ADHD in adults and teenagers. Yet after a bit of investigation, we discovered that Concerta can be actually bought on the streets and taken illegally. Obviously, we won’t at all recommend anyone to do that, so we can only review the product and suggest you go to your doctor if you think Concerta is the thing you need to overcome your struggle to concentrate.
Manufacturer and website:
With Concerta being an approved medication for ADHD and all, we knew the website was going to be pretty nice. And nice it was. On Concerta’s website, you can find all the information you need about the product, its side effects, who it’s recommended for, and loads of other information. The makers of Concerta even describe ADHD and give you resources for finding help with your symptoms.
While checking out the website, we did discover that Concerta is manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, which is owned by Johnson & Johnson. Johnson & Johnson is one of the largest and richest companies in the US and it mainly sells health products. Most people know that large pharmaceutical companies aren’t the most honest and trustworthy of companies, but at least with Concerta you know it has gone through testing and has been proven to actually work for some people. It was easy to find several reviews online and most, if not all, seemed honest. So overall we trusted Concerta as a legitimate medication that may reduce the symptoms of ADHD.
The main ingredient in Concerta is methylphenidate. Methylphenidate is a psychostimulant that speeds up the movement and transmission of information throughout the central nervous system. As a treatment for ADHD in adults and teenagers, Concerta has been proven to lessen the severity of hyperactive and impulsive behaviour often seen in those with ADHD and therefore increase your ability to concentrate. Concerta has also been shown to reduce the symptoms of fatigue and help you focus even though you’re tired.
Yet Concerta is not approved for children below the age of six and it is also not recommended with those who have been diagnosed with severe agitation or certain kinds of depression. It seems however that most people tolerate Concerta well. The most common side effects are insomnia, nausea and loss of appetite.
Well, this is where it gets tricky. Concerta is a prescription medication, so you must go to the doctor to be able to take Concerta. However, we know you can get Concerta on the streets yet we strongly recommend you not do this. First of all, taking Concerta without a prescription is illegal. But you also never know exactly what you’re getting when you buy pills off the streets.
Therefore, even if you’re an adult and you’ve never been diagnosed with ADHD before, if you’re suffering from a lack of ability to concentrate and focus and it’s affecting your daily life, then we recommend you go to your doctor. Speak with him or her and see what medication they recommend. You can ask about Concerta, but obviously they’ll know the best medication for you.
Pro’s and Con’s:
Concerta is an approved medication, which means it has gone through testing trials.
Concerta actually works for some people, so there’s a good chance it will work for you.
Concerta can only be legally obtained by going to your doctor, and there’s no guarantee he or she will prescribe Concerta to you.
Concerta is a medication, not a supplement. We want to make the difference clear. Concerta can only be obtained legally through a doctor, and we strongly discourage you from obtaining Concerta on the streets. If you think Concerta might just be the drug for you, then make an appointment with your doctor.
