    Awesome drug, have tried vyvanse, adderall concerta and focalin, the least expensive - very smooth and lasts a good 6-8 hours, so I take the IR in the afternoon as a booster.

    I'm 36 yrs old. ADD my whole life. I have taken Dexedrine, Adderall, and finally Vyvanse. So far Methylin ER is the least "edgy". Seems mild while still helping me focus at work. I haven't had wierd thoughts so far like on the other meds. Feel more "normal".

As soon as he started taking just 10mg of Methylin ER he could focus and made the honor roll. The effects last the entire school day. He struggles a bit to concentrate on homework, but so far it's manageable. He has put on 10 pound in 6 weeks though. He i ... Show Full Comment

    My eight year old has been on this medication since he was 6. It has worked well for him, but we have had to adjust the medication at least twice a year, due to growth. Over all it works well for him
