Were you looking for information about Concerta? Konserta is a common misspelling of Concerta.
Concerta® (methylphenidate extended release) is a medication often prescribed to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Although it is a stimulant, the drug actually produces a calming effect when used for ADHD treatment. Concerta comes in tablet form and is taken once a day first thing in the morning. It is important to talk to your healthcare provider before using this drug if you have seizures or epilepsy, high blood pressure, or any heart problems.
