Phentermine vs Concerta

Hi all,

I'm newly diagnosed with ADD due to a hugely positive response to phentermine, that was prescribed by my GP as an experimental treatment for ADD. Phentermine was LIFE CHANGING, as for as my success with depression and ADD. I was taken off phentermine due to it being off-label for treatment for ADD. Initally, I was prescribed adderall for long term treatment and had horrible side effects. In short, is seemed to exacerbate my symptoms. In light of that fact, she recommended I try Concerta.

Has anyone had any success with Concerta after finding Phentermine to be immensely helpful? I am eternally hopeful that I will find a med closely related to phentermine.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Phentermine vs Concerta

You can try Concerta or Ritalin and see how it effects you.
I've never been prescribed Phentermine.
