A friend of mine takes concerta (concentration tablets) which helps her throughout the day. Unfortunately, it takes her appetite away and she doesn’t eat because she’s never hungry. I was on those tablets when I was little, and I agree, it’s hard to force yourself to eat. Nothing I offer works, and she can’t change tablets. What should she do other than force food down her throat?

    What’s your TC? How about your friend’s? Why does she need to take the tablets?

      She struggles with concentrating. She’s about 40 strength and I’m 60.

      You can’t just “stop taking them”, that will mess up her system and she’ll most likely be fired. Your body can’t handle such a sudden change.

    She should speak to her prescribing doctor about this.

    Just have her eat a big breakfast, take the pill, and then have dinner once it wears off

    How many calories is she consuming on a daily basis? And have you tried checking her intake against the suggested nutrition for adults?

      Unfortunately, she won’t eat until midnight, where she eats until she’s full. It’s an unhealthy lifestyle, but she can’t switch pills or go off them.

      Yep, unhealthy lifestyle for sure, but she knows her body well and as long as her lifestyle is not causing long term problems or side effects, and her habits are helping her function at the rate she wants, it is okay.

      Alls I am saying is to first determine if it is a problem or not before finding a solution for it. Most of the times, the correct solution presents itself when the right question is asked.

    Well you can take a pill for few days but our bodies adjust to it and it gets enslaved by the pills. You need to stop talking those pills.

      She can’t, they were prescribed to her by her physiologist.
