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. If you get good symptom management with Adderall, it potentially makes sense to try a different amphetamine based stimulant, like Vyvanse. Talk to your doc about this. Just about every medication has potential to upset one’s stomach, but they don’t do that to everyone.
