3 Beer Effect once said something to the effect... Francesco

...that in his knowledge, ADHDers split into two camps, those that responded best to Ritalin and those who responded best to the various amphetamines. He considered himself to be in the latter camp.

Let me see if I can scare that old post up for you, Francesco.

A problem I see with this though, is that considering Ritalin has borderline status in Italy I'm wondering if you are going to have accesss to Adderall, Dexedrine, or Desoxyn.

Adderall is mixed salts of (racemic?) ampethamine. Dexedrine is d-ampethamine. Desoxyn is methampethamine (and is regarded with trepidation by some pdocs here as methampethamine is seen as being more likely to be diverted to street use).

Again, there's also the question of whether these effects are an adjustment period to the drug. Unless things get too out of control, I would continue with the trial. I'm also wondering if Concerta would have these same effects with its timed release. You may want to try near the end of the trial supplementing with L-tyrosine to see if that smoothes the ride out if it is still a roller coaster.
