ADHD Medications

Welcome to the group!

Welcome to the ADHD medications group. Join the discussion about all the medications ADDConnect member are using. Curious about a medication? Just ask!

Let’s start the conversation: What medications have you tried? Which one worked best for you?


My son is on Methalyn because he can’t swallow Concerta pills.  The dosing on the Methalyn is a pain b/c it’s every four hours.  He is only 6, but the days he did swallow the Concerta pills, he did very well. Does anyone know if Concerta can be compounded at a compounding pharmacy?

I’ve tried tons of Rxs.  The worst was Wellbutrin as it brought me down to deep depression, suicidal thoughts.  One that I used quite a long time was Adderall. It did the trick. Never got the “red nose” that a lot have experienced. The BIG problem was dry mouth & constipation.  I know you all want to hear this, but it was a celebration when I crapped.  I finally got off it.

So now I’m on Ritalin SR. However, are any of you having a hard time getting any of your Rxs? The local pharmacies say DEA has cut the manufacturers from producing, so there’s a real shortage here in Oregon. Are any of you having that problem?

I’m trying to get the new Rx cld. Vyvanse. What’s your input on that?

This is my first comment/group. Should be interesting to learn from each other.

Stay tuned
