I was on Concerta 54mg for a long time but it started to poop out on me. I'm now on Dextroamphetamine (Dexedrine) 10mg 3 times a day. There has been a significant improvement with Dex over Concerta. It gives me motivation, mental clarity, and focus. It's definitely a stimulant.

Dexedrine (10 mg twice a day) and Guanfacine. Xanax and Lyrica probably help some, too.

Lisdexamphetamine for 4 weeks, i think it has substituted my use of cannabis. After 20 years i dont think about weed at all.

Ritalin but I only lasted 3 days as it made me so lethargic and other bad effects that I was dysfunctional on it. It exaccerbated what it was intended to help.
