It sounds like you may need to try a different medication — you haven’t found the right balance of help with symptoms and minimal side effects. 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.
