Hi jp. Sorry, I haven't tried either of these. So I speak not from experience. In reading and researching however it seems if one doesn't work well, or is poorly tolerated, another will do better. Some docs favor Dexedrine. Some favor Ritalin. I have heard comments of Ritalin creating a roller coaster ride, up and down and up and down, I think due to it's very short half-life. Peaks and valleys. That's about all I know. Some love it. Some hate it. Just gotta try em and see how they work for YOU.
