Concerta Decreased Appetite Causes and Reviews


Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is high blood pressure in the arteries to your lungs. It is a serious condition. If you have it, the blood vessels that carry blood from your heart to your lungs become hard and narrow. Your heart has to work harder to pump the blood through. Over time, your heart weakens and cannot do its job and you can develop heart failure.

Symptoms of PH include

  • Shortness of breath during routine activity, such as climbing two flights of stairs
  • Tiredness
  • Chest pain
  • A racing heartbeat
  • Pain on the upper right side of the abdomen
  • Decreased appetite

As PH worsens, you may find it hard to do any physical activities.

There are two main kinds of PH. One runs in families or appears for no known reason. The other kind is related to another condition, usually heart or lung disease.

There is no cure for PH. Treatments can control symptoms. They involve treating the heart or lung disease, medicines, oxygen, and sometimes lung transplantation.

Concerta Decreased Appetite Reviews

Fri, 15 Jul 2011

I took ONE dose-----my head, face and ears itched. My face became all blotchy and swelled up. The skin on my forehead and cheeks started to peel, as if I had a sunburn. $40 I spent to take one pill----which was nothing but POISON. Don't use Concerta!

You put your kid on amphetamines when he was 6? Wow dude, that's horribly inappropriate. A lot of kids who show even strong signs of ADHD grow out of it. I didn't start using Concerta till just a few days ago, and I'm 19. I wish I had this through highschool to be honest, but I'm glad I didn't have to take it as a child. It's good you are letting him stop using it though. There shouldn't be any withdrawal effects as far as I know.

It should be o.k, he's probably experiencing fatigue as a drawback from being off Concerta. Concerta can cause imsomnia (the loss of sleep), but given enough time he should recover. If there are more severe symptons he experiences such as pain then going to the doctors would probably be recommended.
