Yes, Concerta is safe to try. It cannot be broken or snorted, so the abuse potential is lower than for other stimulants, such as regular ritalin.

Another option is Vyvanse, which is also prescribed to people with a history of addiction. It is Dexedrine with Lysene, and your body must digest the Lysene first before the Dexedrine becomes active in your system. You also cannot (and SHOULD not) crush or snort the pill.
