  • My son takes Adderall XR. Used to take Concerta but had bad reactions from it. Be very careful though because if you do not get the right dosage, you can have manic episodes. My son was getting too much and it made him homicidal/suicidal and we had to hospitalize him for about 2 weeks. It's not something to mess around with, but with the right amount and constant monitoring, it has helped my son immensely.

  • A kid I babysat took it and concerta at different times, I didn't like his attitude or energy level (none) on either of them. He was in middle school.
