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. You’ve tried two amphetamines so it might be time to try a methylphenidate.

The right medication and dosage should not change your personality and your emotions.
