Added 27 Jul 2013:
to clarify....(because "no science please" sounds ignorant and will demand ignorant answers and comments) I am learning that Methylphenidate is Ritalin and I know what Adderall is all too well. IF you can tell me or shed light on why people would rather take one or the other ..or for that matter why they would rather take one preferably over the other? This is the type of info I seek. Thanks for any insight and experience that is volunteered.

Hi Ludwig41 I have taken both ritilian and Adderall. I prefer Adderall because it lasts longer and it's non stop moving. With Adderall for about 10 hours I'm completely awake and in a happy mood. It's hard to fall asleep but I just take NiQuil If I really can't sleep. So now ritilian, it only last for about 3 hours and its just an awake feeling not alot of energy. I would be annoyed by everyone and just wanted to be by myself when I was on it. Ritilian gave me horrible stomache problems and would make me throw up. But I had no problem going to sleep. That's my opinion
Amphetamine causes your brain to release dopamine, and disrupts the re-uptake process. Methylphenidate is strictly a reuptake inhibitor.
Amphetamine is a massively more powerful drug than Methylphenidate. In abusive doses, Amphetamine causes dopamine levels four times that of methylphenidate abuse.
