> After my difficulties with Adderall, the pdoc thought it would be worthwhile to try another stimulant before moving to non stimulant options.
> I've been on concerta for two days (18 mg). My question is it supposed to make me feel like I'm on speed? I feel very sped up, heart racing, etc. Will this go away in time as I adjust?
> Both stimulants have had a dramatic effect on my organizational skills and task completion. My house is clean, I'm caught up on bills and work, and I even just gave my dog a bath. So I don't want to ditch them without giving them a fair shot.
> Does anyone have thoughts/experiences on concerta (which is Ritalin just extended release, in my understanding) vs. Adderall?
No, but it has a very catchy name.
