In reply to Focalin XR vs Concerta, posted by Lynne on March 14, 2006, at 23:03:05
I switched from Concerta to Focalin XR. Focalin XR is a litle shorter acting more "front loaded than Concerta. Feels "sharper", more similar to dexedrine effects even though its the active isomer of methylphenidate.Focalin XR has less of the "train tunnel thnking" and a smaller dose is needed. Focalin XR is a tier 3 med with Oxford
> Can anyone compare these two meds for me. I want to switch from Dexedrine to one of these. I had previously tried Ritalin LA and didn't like it. It put me to sleep. I tried Concerta a few years ago and I liked it. Can't remeber why I switched to Dex. Just curious about the Focalin XR.
