Are you basing this on how you feel or by productivity, lack of problems, etc?

I ask this because Concerta’s big benefit over other types of methylphenidate is the time-release.

It has a much slower rise and fall.
You are definitely less likely to feel anything as it comes and goes.
I personally, hated the crash that came with my non-Concerta methylphenidate wearing off.

I don’t feel my Concerta, but I still get the same benefit in productivity.
