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. It may be time to try a methylphenidate. Some people consider the methylphenditates not as “strong” and not increasing anxiety as much.
