This question has also been asked and answered here: Concerta Vs Adderall: What's the difference between them?
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.
i was on adderall xr and then concerta cuz the doc jus wanted to try different things but adderall xr is the best ive found for myself my brother also is on adderall xr and has went thur probably every adhd meds there is and this is the only thing thats helped him and not had bad side effects so i would try the adderall first.
