Talk to your prescribing doctor about getting more tired the more days in a row you take your medication. That’s not an acceptable side effect, but rather trading one problem for another.

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. You’ve tried two amphetamines so maybe it’s time for your doctor to consider trying a methylphenidate.
