personally, i've been switched to concerts a few times and i feel that adderall has helped me concentrate more and was able to finish my work on concerta after about 2 months on it it had a few side effects for me one of them being depression and the other was weight gain. i also noticed that i had more and more trouble completing a simple task. i talked to my doctor and he didn't want to put me on a anit-depressent because it wasn't emotional depression, it was chemical depression. he switched me back to adderall 30mg XR and i lost the added weight and was able to complete simple tasks. this is what happened to me. im not saying it wont work for m but talk to your doctor about the different way's they work.
