Oxcarbazepine is a prescription medication used to treat a specific type of seizure in people with epilepsy. Seizures are divided into two major categories -- partial seizures (also known as focal seizures) and generalized seizures. Partial seizures occur in just one part of the brain. Generalized seizures affect both sides of the brain. Oxcarbazepine is approved to control partial seizures in people with epilepsy.

Concerta extended release is a prescription medication used for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children, teens, and adults up to age 65. It is designed to be released slowly over time. Because the medication is released slowly, it can be taken just once a day, eliminating the need to take medication at school or work.

Because the medication is a stimulant and is commonly abused, there are special rules for prescribing it

Both meds a different, however for more info please seek medical advice.

Take care, best wishes!
