Reply To: Vyvanse breathing problems

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.With that knowledge it makes sense to try the methylphenidates, since you’ve already tried an amphetamine.

There is no one medication with the “highest success rate.” Stimulant medications are different for every individual.
