Concerta is a brand name for an extended-release form of the medication methylphenidate, commonly used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It provides symptom relief over an extended period, typically lasting 10-12 hours, and is designed to help individuals with ADHD improve focus, attention, and impulse control. Concerta is available by prescription and should be used under the guidance of a healthcare provider. It is a central nervous system stimulant and is often part of a comprehensive treatment plan for ADHD, which may include behavioral therapies and psychosocial interventions. If you or someone you know is prescribed Concerta, it’s essential to follow the healthcare provider’s instructions and attend regular follow-up appointments to monitor its effectiveness and any potential side effects.
