The difference is concerta is a controlled substance it has amphetamines. Intuniv is not a controlled substance. The best one between the two i would say concerta but it really depends on the person if they have severe adhd if its a mild adhd then intuniv would be perfect. Yes there is such a thing as severe and mild adhd my son has severe adhd and he is always out of control his doctor told me to give him a day off from the medicine but with his case its not possible. When he went to school one day and he forgot to take his medicine they held him in the office till i brought him one they said if i didnt he was going to need to go home for the day. Hope this gave you some insight on each medicine.
