    There is this drug, generic name Methylphenidate, but you may know it as Concerta or Ritalin. My doctor recommended that I should take it as a stimulant, to increase my alertness and improve working performance. I’ve got to say that my work days have been really hectic of late and I sometimes find it hard to keep up, hence the recommendation. So what I would like to know is how long does this Concerta last? No, I am not dumb and can read the information online; I just want to know how long it really last for actual people, IYKWIM.

    I know what you mean; official information you usually see on the package is about average effects, and no person is average. The dosage may vary from person to person, and it definitely effects how long the medication lasts. I used to take 36 mg Concerta, and it lasted for about 7 to 8 hours for me.
