Every medication you mentioned is a methylphenidate. There are two types of stimulants: amphetamine (Adderall, Vyvanse, Evekeo…) and methylphenidate (Ritalin, Concerta, Quillivant, Journay…). Almost everyone does well on one type or the other, but not both.

It may be time to try an amphetamine-based stimulant. He may do better on those. If not, you’ll know to keep trying methylphenidate until you find the right one and right dose.

Here’s details and user review on Jornay:
