Common Side Effects of Concerta

Concerta Withdrawal

Changes in mood or behavior may occur while taking Concerta.

Concerta can interfere with any current allergies or disorders you’ve been diagnosed with (for example, high blood pressure or a stomach disorder), so its use should be strongly regulated. You may experience negative side effects while taking Concerta, which can be detrimental to your physical and emotional health.

The most common ones include:

  • Changes in mood or behavior
  • Bruising on your skin or eyes
  • Flu-like symptoms such as fever, headache, and sore throat
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Weight loss

Losing weight with ease is one reason why many people abuse methylphenidates. Other reasons for abuse include the desire for stimulation or energy and better performance at school or work.

Concerta Withdrawal Symptoms

Taking Concerta can be habit-forming and cause you to experience painful or unhealthy withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking it.

Withdrawal symptoms from Concerta can not only negatively impact your health, but also cause detrimental changes in your physiological and emotional feelings and behaviors.

Many of the most common symptoms include:

  • Trouble sleeping, extreme nightmares, psychosis, or chronic insomnia

Treatment to Overcome Concerta Withdrawal Symptoms

While the process of overcoming your addiction to Concerta can be long and grueling, there is good news – treatment is very possible and it might not have to be very intense, depending on your particular situation. The type of treatment you need to completely withdraw from Concerta will vary based on the severity of your addiction, withdrawal symptoms, age, and history of abuse.

Getting Treatment at Home

If your level of addiction is relatively low and your withdrawal symptoms are mild, you may be able to use an outpatient treatment program while staying at home. Take advantage of local treatment centers with outpatient programs and practice a gradual tapering regimen rather than going cold turkey.

Inpatient Treatment at a Clinic or Treatment Facility
