All the meds you listed as tried are amphetamine based stimulants. 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.Sounds like you could do better with methylphenidates, but you have to try them to know.
