... Concerta made me sick and mean...grumpy...bad dreams....and it didnt help with the ADD. Adderall makes me tired for about an hour when I come down off of it, I usually get a headache too, but it's worth it because during the day I can focus. I've also lost 15 pounds on it. (9 replies)
... I take focalin, there is no comedown as far as i can tell period. The difference is ritalin and concerta have d-methylphenidate and l-methylphenidate, i think d is dextro and l is levo.

... 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)
