... 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)

... 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)

... 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)
... 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. I started out on 10mg IR Adderall and then slowly moved up over the last couple of years to 20mg, then 30mg, then 50mg. Then the shortage... (9 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. Recently I switched to concerta (Ritalin) ext release and it much better. It still helps me concentrate but it doesn't wind u up so much.

... Adderall contains the same ingredient as Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine) but it also contains other ingredients, collectively known as "amphetamine salts". Adderall and Dexedrine are not the same drug. Dexedrine is cheaper because it has been around so much longer. It carries a slightly higher potential for abuse than does Ritalin and Ritalin's cousins - Concerta, Metadate,... (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)
