Concerta (methylphenidate) is a sustained-release form of Ritalin, which is also methylphenidate. It is used when taking 3 or so Ritalin tablets in one day is just too much of a pain in the ass and you want to just have one dose and have it remain steady throughout the day. Doses come in 18mg(baige), 27mg(blue), 36mg(white), and 54mg(red) cylindrical tablets. It is the second step down from Adderall(amphetamine-dextroamphetamine) in treating ADD/ADHD.

A tiny, almost imperceptible cough, usually hidden behind a mask due to; emphysema, asthma, allergies or the dreaded COVID, so as not to alarm others to your potential of being “the infected.”
I was walking through the grocery store and I had a tickle in my throat but I didn’t want people to think I was contagious so I let out a microcough.

A stronger version of Adderall (forget what that jerk below me said) Concerta is a drug that gets you focused. But before that, it JACKS YOU UP HARD. You get twitchy, nervous, anxious, paranoid, and have panic attacks. It drives you crazy, gives you mood-swings and just fucks you up in general. After that stage passes though, you are a laser guided focus machine. I personally take a pretty big 72mg dose, and let me tell you, as soon as the shakes end, I can write a 15 page research paper on a subject I have never studied. Say what you will, but this shit works.
I took some concerta, and I got my paper written in record time. Right after I made a tinfoil hat to keep out the governments mind control rays.

this is a commonly used drug used for kids with ADHD, (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) which i happen to have. it helps people concentrate on their work, and pay attention. If youre like me though, you pop them and stay up for days on end with no sleep, and become increasingly alert and twitchy :) but that MIGHT just be me.

A methylphenidate used in treatment for ADHD. When diagnosed and consenting to meds, you go on a drug trial to figure out which dosage is best for you. Concerta XL 18mg-27mg-36mg-54mg-72mg, and if none work, Docs should prescribe another medication. Lemme tell you, the smaller doses aren't as effective if your brain is more fucked up.

I started feeling the side effects more at 36mg, and at 54mg my eyes started burning and shit started becoming blurry. Felt like I couldn't read a motherfucking number plate.

Anyway, your heart rate becomes fucked. Increases to some stupid number. Boy, i was a normal 70 bpm before and on 72mg i'm at roughly 109. Be prepared to feel anxious, agitated, and lose your appetite.

That's the shitty side though.

Your concentration does improve if you're on the right dose, and you actually don't want to procrastinate as much anymore. I'm sure you'll be able to talk in actual sentences too and stop feeling like a damn numpty whenever you try to explain something.
Need to take my concerta before my lecture, otherwise i won't understand a damn thing.

Methylphenidate (AKA Ritalin, et al) in a unique time release, abuse prevention pill casing. The pill itself is not digested, but passes through the stomach and intestines and is intact in the fecal matter. The mechanism involves a small hole on one side of the hard plastic-like pill, and interior which is 1/2 the medication, and 1/2 an expanding inert substance. When the pill enters the stomach, the stomach acid leeches into the hole and causes the inert matter to expand, slowly pushing out the methylphenidate over a number of hours. It is impossible to crush the pill, and even if it is manage to be opened, the drug itself is suspended in substance which makes it impossible to crush to powder and snort or inject. However, Concerta is rarely prescribed if other options are available due to requirements of the pH and amount of stomach acid in the stomach to be correct. Otherwise, the drug can release too quickly, or not fully release, thus passing without a patient fully absorbing the dose.

If you have attention deficit disorder, speak with your psychiatrist about Concerta. No one posting here including myself has the medical license to describe this accurately, even if they are a doctor.
Concerta has a neat shape, fascinating mechanism of release, and absolutely pathetic results as used as an ADHD medication.
