    Behavioral Side Effects
    My 9 yr old daughter started 18mg of Concerta five days ago. By the second day she has been very oppositional and yelling back at me when asked to do something. This is not her personality. Could this be a side effect?

    Confusion and social introversion
    Would like to learn as much as possible about reports of confusion and social introversion. Becoming draggy and not enthusiastic (but without any other signs of depression). Almost seems like a paradoxical effect.
