I was on meds when I was younger. I am currently using an alternative treatment plan wich is working much better than meds did, and is a lot safer. If you havent looked into alternative treatments please give them a try.

As for comparing the meds 10mg XR to start is a good starting dose. It may end up being about 20mg XR daily. The differences I'd say are this:

Adderall XR -
Lasts about 6-8 hours
Some kids have emotional instability (crying, sadness for no reason)
The "rebound" (when it wears off) with adderall isnt as extreme

Concerta -
Lasts about 8-12 hours
Anxiety/Moodiness/Rebound when it wears off

of course its diff for everybody.
