Concerta Palpitations Causes and Reviews


An arrhythmia is a problem with the rate or rhythm of your heartbeat. It means that your heart beats too quickly, too slowly, or with an irregular pattern. When the heart beats faster than normal, it is called tachycardia. When the heart beats too slowly, it is called bradycardia. The most common type of arrhythmia is atrial fibrillation, which causes an irregular and fast heart beat.

Many factors can affect your heart's rhythm, such as having had a heart attack, smoking, congenital heart defects, and stress. Some substances or medicines may also cause arrhythmias.

Symptoms of arrhythmias include

  • Fast or slow heart beat
  • Skipping beats
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweating

Your doctor can run tests to find out if you have an arrhythmia. Treatment to restore a normal heart rhythm may include medicines, an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) or pacemaker, or sometimes surgery.

Concerta Palpitations 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!

My son is 8 and has been on Concerta for 3yrs he is telling me he does not need it anymore so i just stopped is that ok he has been off for 4days the only thing i am seeing is fatigue, please some let me know if this is ok. Kim

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.

My son was wheezing with physical complaints of bronchospasm for 60 minutes after gym class ended. He has never had wheezing before this, is 16 years old and has been on Concerta (36 mg/day sustained release) for 2 months. I am notifying the physician today.
