... but decided to switch to Concerta a couple of weeks ago so I didn't have to go through all the ups and downs of Ritalin. I am now taking two 54mg tabs of Concerta a day, along with early morning and late evening 10mg "bumps" of Ritalin. ... (9 replies)
... mg of ritalin or concerta. It's also cheaper for me. ... (9 replies)
... I realize this topic originated a while ago, but I also feel it may have sparked some worthy discussion. SnappDragon- Does the Concerta have the same kind of effects on your ADD as Ritalin did (apart from the differences that come with a sustained/long acting release vs. immediate effects)? And have you ever taken Adderal or Adderal XR? Like getreal, I concur that both... (9 replies)

... realizing I need dosage adjustments for the hyper feeling and palpitations. My focus was better. Also my dr will likely prescribe a shorter acting ritalin to bring me down with less adverse reaction in the evenings. ... (9 replies)
... Concerta makes me feel a little speedy, but if you take Ritalin than you're probably used to that feeling. ... (9 replies)
... Ok, so I've been on all of the meds you listed at one time or another. I'm no expert, but you and I sound alot alike in the way the Adderall made me feel very social and happy in the beginning but hasn't had that affect for quite some time. ... (9 replies)
... I liked that with Adderall you only have to use it on school days when he needs more focus. With concerta or Strattera you have to take it every day to keep it in your system. ... (9 replies)
... I personally found Adderall to be much stronger than Ritalin. Again, everyone is different in how their body reacts to medication, so it's kind of hard to decide from others' opinions. ... (18 replies)
... I've been on everything... Adderall, Dexedrine, Ritalin, although not yet Concerta or Strattera. ... (18 replies)
... I used to take adderall 30 mg but I had a very hard time falling asleep at night and I would get agitated when it wore off in the evening. ... (9 replies)
... down from Concerta is smoother than that of Adderall. ... (5 replies)
... actually Desoxyn (methamphetamine) is the strongest amphetamine, followed by dexedrine (dextroamphetamine sulphate) and then adderall (mixed amphetamine salts) (18 replies)
... There could be other factors that make it appear your Adderall is quiting on you. ... (5 replies)
... but it also contains other ingredients, collectively known as "amphetamine salts". Adderall and Dexedrine are not the same drug. ... (18 replies)
... Supposedly Adderall is the strongest stimulent medication out right now but what works for one usually doesn't work for another so it is a trial and error type of process. ... (18 replies)
... Has anyone tried both and seen any difference. My son has taken Concerta but it doesn't let him sleep which makes him more hyper. Now he is trying Strattera...he sleeps and eats but cannot focus. ... (3 replies)
... Haha I had the same experience only I think my productivity might have actually increased at work with the concerta. I also feel more normal like I can fit in with all the slackers if I chose to do so on any given day. Granted I don't feel like superman anymore in the mornings but then i also dont feel like a addict going through a withdrawal at the end of the day. I... (9 replies)
... ere twins, there are a huge number of biological and environmental factors that can lead to people receiving different effects from different medications. While Concerta may indeed work for you, the fact that it works for your brother is meaningless. ... (3 replies)
... Now that I'm typing all of this, maybe I need to try other options. I did try Ritalin and Concerta before Adderall and both had weird side effects. On Concerta I would find myself in places and couldn't remember how I got there or what I was doing, basically losing time. On Ritalin I got terrible nausea and headaches. ... (6 replies)
... Of course you are not a loser. Years of amphetamines for ADD could easily tempt a teen, who might have become tolerant and thus never quite feels right even on the med, to experiment for a bit of better feeling or simply to make the med more effective so they can be "normal" again. You know, most in the medical field feel taking ADD meds in childhood will stop a teen from... (8 replies)
