what to expect switching from adderall/vyvanse?

looking to try concerta, i've been on adderall and then vyvanse for 9 months now, both seem to have lost some effectiveness, what should I expect concerta/ritalin to be like? I have ADHD symptoms, also take Lexapro for GAD

Lol i read this super old post hoping it would have an answer. So far I have noyiced I can't dronk energy drinks like I could on Vyvanse. Also this doesnt tear up ny stomach. The most negative thing is it does not wear off smoothly like Vyvanse

What dosage were you on w/ Vyvanse, and what are you on with concerta? I made the switch too and while my anxiety is under control my ADD is not at all....
