I am currently taking Buspar and Lexapro. My psych wants to wean me off of the Lexapro and up the Buspar because I want to start an ADHD medication but don't want to have so many things in my system. I will do the Lexapro/Buspar first and revisit the ADHD meds if I opt to later. But she said my only real choice for it right now would be Concerta which I took 10+ years ago as a teenager. Now I'm an adult, on different meds, and on birth control pills too. For any of you who have taken Concerta as an adult (in general, or with any combination of these other things), how much did it affect you? Was it positive or negative? I understand everyone is different and there's no one outcome to expect I just don't want to zombified, just have better focus on work and shut my brain down for sleep and stuff.

      I'm currently on busiprone for PTSD & it does work for me, but I generally take mine before bedtime to help me sleep through the night without flashbacks/nightmares in regards to my trauma. Everybody is different, so I would suggest doing a further look into the treatment options that has worked vs what hasn't with your Doctor & see how that helps.

        @Penguinmama I take my Buspirone twice daily, once in the morning and once at night. Combined with the Lexapro has helped my anxiety and depression but that's about all it's done

One user mentioned that Concerta helped them not be so impulsive and jittery, but they still couldn't control their focus well. Another user shared that they have been on Concerta for over 6 years and it works well for them. However, experiences with medications can vary greatly from person to person, so it's important to discuss your concerns with your psychiatrist and monitor your response to the medication.
