View Full Version : How similar is Rubifen to Ritalin?

Hello, I was recently prescribed both Rubifen (20 mg two times a day) and Elvanse (30 mg) after my last visit to the psychiatrist. Apparently, Rubifen is the substitute for Ritalin and Elvanse is a sub for Vyvanse. I am supposed to try both for the next two weeks and have another appointment. Elvanse is pretty expensive, so I was considering giving Rubifen a try first, but before that I want to anyone if anyone has had any experience with it? If it makes a difference, I only have ADD and need it for academic work so basically readings, papers and paying attention in large classes.

Before moving here, I used Adderal which did wonders and gave me the clarity and motivation I lacked, but is not available here (Spain). So I was just wondering how Rubifen compares to other AD(H)D medication.

Any input would be appreciated. :)
