Concentrate Harder with Concerta
While sitting through a long meeting, or listening to a friend drone on about work or life, it’s easy to become distracted and let your mind wander. In fact, it’s only natural. Studies have shown that mind-wandering tends to occur when doing activities that don’t require you to actively participate, or when you’re doing something repetitive. Other studies show that allowing your mind to wander may actually cause you to become unhappy and perform poorly on certain tasks.
All of our minds wander, but when this lapse in attention becomes chronic and begins to affect our daily lives, could it be something more serious? Over the past years, greater attention has been turned to ADHD, which stands for attention deficit hyperactive disorder. ADHD is a medical disorder that has symptoms such as hyperactivity and inattentiveness. It can be a serious condition that affects the daily lives of anywhere from 2-5% of adults. However, since attention first turned to ADHD, its diagnosis and treatment have been controversial. Firstly because it appears that some people are incorrectly diagnosed, and also because many are over-prescribed medication.
Yet Concerta is a trusted medication that is approved to treat ADHD in adults. Concerta admits that the symptoms of ADHD may cause issues in your daily life and since 76% of ADHD is genetic, it may not even be your fault. With proper treatment that may include counselling or other therapies, and the taking of Concerta, the symptoms of ADHD may be managed.
The ingredient in Concerta is methylphenidate. The methylphenidate in Concerta is a psycho-stimulant that increases the movement of information in the central nervous system. Concerta has been shown to improve impulsive and hyperactive behaviour and increase focus and attention. It also helps you maintain alertness and as a result, combat fatigue. Concerta is time released so you get a nearly consistent amount of medication throughout the day. It has well-established short-term benefits and is supposedly a cost-effective drug. However, Concerta is not approved for children under the age of six and is not recommended for those with certain kinds of depression or for those who suffer from agitation. Overall, Concerta is well tolerated and the most common side effects are appetite loss, nausea, and insomnia. Moreover, Concerta can also be used for those suffering from narcolepsy, bipolar disorder, and major depressive disorder.
So how does all this pertain to you you may ask? Well, the first thing you must do is decide whether your symptoms of distraction and the inability to focus are just the normal types that most adults suffer from or could you perhaps have ADHD? There are numerous tests you can take online, or you might be able to get tested at your university or doctor’s office. Still, in order to take Concerta, you will need a prescription. Therefore you will eventually need to go to a doctor and get officially tested and diagnosed. Only then will you be able to take Concerta and see if it works for you.
Concerta is a drug that is abused and taken illegally. For those who don’t have ADHD, Concerta can give you a sense of increased energy and lead even to a euphoria. Yet those with attention issues may feel they are able to concentrate more easily with Concerta. As a result, Concerta is commonly abused by students and those working in high stress environments. We strongly do not recommend taking Concerta without a prescription. Firstly, this is illegal, but secondly those who abuse Concerta generally take more than they’re supposed to, which can create a high similar to the high from cocaine, thus leading the person to take more and more high doses and as a result leading to addiction.
If you have a serious problem concentrating, seek out a doctor and ask if Concerta is right for you. It may just provide the results you’re looking for. However, if you can’t get a prescription, we strongly suggest you seek out legal and safe supplements somewhere else.
