    Ive been taking 54mg since 2002. My mom made me take it at first. I was 15 at the time and honestly it has been an overall bad experience and has been holding me back ever since. At first it took my personality away and i went from a very social, creative, outgoing person to an anxious, nervous, withdrawn and just didn't have anything to say to anyone. That made me depressed since Ive always b ... Show Full Comment

    I tried adderall, but it didn't work that well - Ritalin worked great but even Ritalin LA wore off too quickly. Concerta has the same effect as Ritalin - but less side effects. It is WONDERFUL! It helps me stay focused - I remember things - it has been a saving grace in my life. I would highly recommend over the other two.

    Comment:
    I was diagnosed with ADHD three years ago after both college and graduating from a difficult top tier law school. Had I known I had the disorder sooner, things may have been easier. However, I was leery of Adderall or Ritalin because students would deal them and take them with other illicit drugs to study. I wanted nothing to do with it, though it was prescribed. Just this year, I started working ... Show Full Comment
