@bamaboytn,

There is no one “right” medication for ADHD. There is also no way to really predict exactly which medication will work best for each individual. Some people respond better to one class of stimulant or the other. Some people can benefit from either, and some don’t benefit from ADHD medication at all. It’s really a trial and error procedure to find the right medication for you.

Talk with your doctor about trying medication and take his/her advice on where to start. This article can provide some guidance as well: http://www.additudemag.com/adhd/article/718.html.

Modifying your study skills may help as well. Here are some strategies for more successful studying for ADHD students: http://www.additudemag.com/slideshow/11/.

Keep working at it!
