Concerta and Adderall xr

Posted by broly on January 22, 2006, at 15:38:14

Dear guys,

I am 18 years old. Turned 18 this past october.

At the time I write this message to you, it has been my 3rd day on Concerta.

I was a late diagnose. A pediatrician got really mad at my mom not getting it done earlier with report cards consisently saying "Cannot focus, too much talking, hyper". It has now been 12 years later and I'm finally on a drug that lets me reach up to my ability I am capable of.

The problem is I don't get tunnel vision with concerta. I can focus better, but I still feel I'm not focusing hard enough. Granted this is my first 30 day trial, I will tell you that Concerta 36MG is great, but I'm 18, 6'1 1/4 and 210 pounds. I do not find this to be enough.

What should I look for when Im on this drug? My friend told me dexadrine is like a narcotic for him. I can say safely that I do get energy from Concerta, and I do feel more alert, but I do not feel tunnel vision and I still can get distracted AT TIMES.

36 Mg for someone my size? Should I push for 72 or 54mg? Or should I push for Adderall?

It's a great drug, I hear everything my prof says and I always get notes like no tomorrow, I just feel that if I'm not getting tunnel vision, then it musn't be high enough.
Appetite suppression isn't that bad, usually i eat a sandwich, a doughnut, bagel and some tea and I'm fine.

Do you guys recommend Adderal XR? What should i tell my Doctor? Won't he get mad if I ask for a higher dosage?

So how does tunnel vision work? Do my sides blur out or what?

P.S> I still tune out occasionally ( stare/daydream)

Please advise!
