Neurologist Dr. Johannes Peperkamp's  Response
Recent publications does show that there is no reduced effect of birth control pills when using Concerta.I must clarify this by saying that beside these medications nothing else is used.ADHD is a neurological disease.
The diagnose of ADHD is mostly done by psychiatrists and their therapy is CBT and GET.
Further on Concerta can be helpfull to focus on activities. ADHD is not! a psychiatric disease but an problem with brain chemistry and not with pre or after birth psychiatric
pathology.Suggest to read recent med. lit. on this.
