My 16 year old son has been on Concerta for years (since it first came out) and recently was taking 54 mg after taking 36mg for four years. Recently I noticed how angry he was when he took his medicine so I asked his pediatrician if we could try something else. She perscribed Adderall xr 25mg and he just started taking it today.

Recently he was very ill (not related to the ADD) and missed 2 1/2 weeks of school so needless to say he is behind and being a kid that struggles already, it has been very hard and stressfull on him...and me!:( He took his first dose of Adderall this morning and after school he seemed the same cranky, angry teen he always is on the Concerta.

Is it too early to tell if I made a mistake in changing his meds or could it just be the stress thing? If he is having the same symptoms on both meds, I'd rather keep him on the Concerta because it is half the price of the Adderall.

Any suggestions/comments welcome...thank you!!:)
