One week in, same old same old.

So I've been diagnosed ADHD Inattentive, and the doc put me on Concerta 18mg a day. It has been 1 week, and yes I do realize that's not long.
So far, I feel zero difference (with one exception)...that said, of course, I have no idea what to expect. My symptoms ARE my normal, and have been since I can remember.
What I am surprised at is just how sleepy I am. I am low-energy as it is, I have always been permanently tired, but this is worse.
Those who have been on this med: anyone experience the same thing?
Most reports and stories I have read indicate otherwise...I find it surprising, since Concerta is a stimulant. So far I am not stimulated.
Plus, like I noted earlier, no other improvement. I'm still distracted, it still takes forever to finish anything, or get started for that matter.
My expectations are too high, aren't they?
