Dexmethylphenidate vs methylphenidate:what's difference?

Is there anyone who tried both dexmethylphenidate and methylphenidate?
Is there anyone whom only one of these drugs has worked but the other one not?
Is there any really difference between them?

They are similar but different medications. Methylphenidate IR is most known as Ritalin and the ER version is Concerta.

Dexmethylphenidate is Focalin.

Re: Dexmethylphenidate vs methylphenidate:what's difference?

I’ve never tried either but Dexmethylphenidate is very similar to methylphenidate (the active component of Concerta, Daytrana, Ritalin, Metadate, and Methylin). In fact, methylphenidate is actually a mixture of dexmethylphenidate and levomethylphenidate. Of these two components, dexmethylphenidate is the more active one.
