I was recently diagnosed with adult ADHD. My doctor prescribed Concerta, 36 mg. No change. He upped to 54 mg, no change. He Upped to 72 mg, still no change. I don’t feel focused, I just feel like eveyone goes too slow and they irritate me, but I swear I can’t get anything done. I can’t focus. I am fairly sure I need to get a different medication. What do you think?

oh, and I never felt any kind of euphoria on Concerta, in none of the different dosages; don’t get me wrong, I’m not chasing that feeling, I just think it’s weird everyone feels a little euphoria at first, and I’ll I’ve felt is irritation
