there seems to be a relation between concerta
) and puberty
, but it's the other way round. actually puberty does not affect the way concerta works, but concerta does affect attainment of puberty more so in boys.
when the child starts attaining puberty, the testosterone level
is raised and it tends to worsen the ADHD
in the person, so it may not be the best of times to stop taking medicines as it may turn counterproductive.
so my advice would be to restart medicine without delay and without any gap. and furthermore you should have consulted your doctor before taking any such steps as it may be detrimental to your son.
hope my advice is helpful for you
thanks for your query
