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. Concerta may not be the best type for you. Talk to your prescribing doctor about what you’re experiencing and when they think it’s time to try something different.
