Concerta Dizziness Causes and Reviews


When you're dizzy, you may feel lightheaded, woozy, or disoriented. If you feel like you or the room are spinning, you have vertigo. These feelings may make you lose your balance.

Dizziness can have many different causes. A sudden drop in blood pressure or being dehydrated can make you dizzy. Many people feel lightheaded if they get up too quickly from sitting or lying down. Certain medicines and problems with your inner ear may cause Dizziness. So can motion sickness. Sometimes Dizziness can be a symptom of other disorders.

As people get older, they may have more health problems and take more medicines. This makes them more likely to have problems with Dizziness and balance.

Dizziness usually gets better by itself or is easily treated. If you are dizzy often, you should see your health care provider to find the cause.

Concerta Dizziness 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.
