I take Guanfacine and Vyvanse. I sometimes take Adderall if I need to extend concentration longer in the day. I dont like Adderall, It makes me very cranky so I dont often take it. There are two classes of ADHD medication that work on the brain differently. Adderall is in one and Vyvanse is in the other, but there are also several others in eack category).There are also non stimulant ADHD medication (Stratera I think one is called) which might be what you need. A psychiatrist should be able to help you work through this to find the right medication.
