Part of the emotionally salient distraction theory

Correct me if I'm wrong I know very little about the physical

Concerta did calm racing thoughts for me until I became tolerant
I doubt I'd be able to correct you, you seem to have a more general knowledge about this stuff than I do!

Concerta was a mixed bag for me, I don't seem to be able to tolerate stimulants very well.

Also, might seem like a basic question, but do stimulants strengthen prefrontal cortical activity? It's coming across to me that intuniv works in a more multi-faceted way than stimulants, but admittedly my knowledge of the latter is lacking.
