Like many others,I have tried Add,Dex,and Rit for ADD.These are the main differences,as far as basics:
1) Adderrall is composed of 4 different Amphetamine salts and was originally used in the 60's as a weight-loss drug called Obitrol.It has more effect on some folks respiratory system than others,so it was also less likely to be abused.It was re-marketed in the mid-90's as Adderrall,ADD drug.It also lasts longer than the other 2.
2) Dexedrine has been around for 50 years ,at least,cause it became useful during WWII to fight fatigue.It has only 1 Amph.salt,Dextroamphetamine,and lasts nearly as long as the "ADDY's".It is smoother and less shaky,too.
3) Ritalin is a name given to that form of the drug,Methylphenidate.It has very close properties to both Amphetamines and Cocaine,but is less potent and lasts about 4 the IR form.Lon-acting forms of all 3 drugs do exist.
Hope this helps,Jack Saturn
