All the stimulant medications used to treat ADHD are different — not doing well with one does NOT mean you won’t do well with any of them. 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. With that in mind, talk to your doctor about the possibility of trying something else.
