Were you looking for information about Concerta? Conserta is a common misspelling of Concerta.
Concerta® (methylphenidate extended release) is a prescription medication that is approved to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Based on clinical studies, children, teenagers, and adults with ADHD who took Concerta had significant improvement in their ADHD symptoms, compared to children who did not take Concerta for ADHD. Concerta is a stimulant, but it can cause a calming effect when used in the doses to treat ADHD. The medication comes in the form of a tablet that is taken by mouth once a day first thing in the morning. Before taking Concerta, you should talk to your healthcare provider about any medical conditions you may have, such as any heart problems, high blood pressure, or a history of drug or alcohol abuse.
