Please study up on ADHD and the medications used. I don't know where you heard that it takes a while for adderall to work. Adderall is a stimulant, it works almost immediatly. Adderall aka amphetamine salt combo is stronger than methylphenidate (ritalin, concerta) so the highest daily dose recomended is 40mg.

I was medicated when I was young and I suggest that if you have not already done so you give the safer more natural treatments a try before moving from rx to rx. There are tons of options, biofeedback, nutritional interventions, and many more. Please try them if you havent already done so.

As for comparing adderall and concerta. For most people concerta lasts 8-12 hours. For some people regular adderall lasts about 7 hours, XR lasts 4-9 hours. For me regular adderall lasted about 3/4 hours.

Please try other options (if you havent already) before continuing with all of these RX.
