It’s not something you want to accept, but you may give it a few days and see if it mellows out. If not, Talk to the prescribing doctor about what you’re seeing. There are two types of stimulants: amphetamine (Adderall, Vyvanse, Evekeo…) and methylphenidate (Ritalin, Concerta, Quillivant…). Almost everyone does well on one type or the other, but not both.She may do better on a methylphenidate.
