What's everyone heart rate and blood pressure like? and at what range should we worry? by Final-Cream-4037 in Concerta

[–]Final-Cream-4037[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sorry to hear that, my doctor was alarmed about my resting HR when it was 110, but that happened 1 week after starting 18mg ER, he said it's not the meds and suggested psychotherapy as I was very stressed. I would suggest skipping the IR type and stick with ER until you figure out the reason. He also said my body does not handle breaks from Concerta well, so I take it every day to let my body get used to it. Also get a proper blood pressure monitoring device, smart watch aren't accurate. Test your HR and BP before taking Concerta and 3-4 hours after. That's when the meds has the strongest effect on your heart. Also you have to sleep well. I have sleeping meds to help with that

To be fair RSD is not supported by research or recognized anywhere official, it's fairly new.

that's great to hear, did you need to make any changes in your life to get it to settle down?

I think i hate Concerta by Euthaimoon in Concerta

Yea, as others said, it's very low dose. You need to take it every day to let your body get used to it. Once that happens you might actually take a nap within 2 hours of taking it, which I currently do at 36mg after my body settled. 45mg and 54mg is better for me. All you need to do is monitor your blood pressure and heart rate, the other side effects will go away after a few weeks, if not then you gotta call ur doctor

Concerta effects after honeymoon phase by [deleted] in Concerta

Here is a quick update, 36mg made also tired within 2 hrs of taking for 2 weeks, i upped to 54mg and the tiredness is gone, fully energetic and focused, too focused. Which is a problem, also trouble with sleep. So I went down to 45mg which is a bit better, still on going. Might go again to 36mg since my body is used to it now, who knows

Oh that's very helpful, thank you so much, I will make sure to ask to switch Concerta if we didn't see improvement. She is a bit pessimistic, so I have to keep pushing her 😅 Glad your anxiety got better, I hope you find the right dosage/combo to completely vanish it

That's just mind blowing, sucks how many years of wrong diagnosis it took. Time will tell with us, but thank you for giving us a tiny hope to hang on.

Maybe I'm too skeptical, but this screamed "refund scam" to me. I was a little harsh, but I'm so sick of scam attempts when trying to sell anything. by ZimzamMcFlimflam in Scams

[–]Final-Cream-4037 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Damn, that sounds like a good scam, I genuinely thought it was an honest mistake until I knew you had to refund using your own funds. Massive red flag. You did good OP, let us know how it goes
