Depends on need: What dose yoiu need to be effective is determined by working with a neruologist or your family doctor. The dose of 36 mg should be equally effective whether as two 18 mg tablets or one 36 mg tablet.

Concerta: No difference. Make sure your doctor knows if you are changing the dose.
