Complex: The same amount of methylphenidate is present in each, so the answer is 25 mg. But there are complexities. First, absorption and therefore bioavailability are dfferent. Medical experience says liquid is more quickly and completely absorbed. Second, the mechanisms of delay in release are different, but probably not fully predictable in effect. Practically, they may be very different. See the doc. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Some adults prefer having a little more control over dosing so shorter-acting Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is preferred. Others like once-a-day dosing to carry through the workday. Some ppl metabolize extended-release meds faster ; find they don't last the 12 hours promised. You'll have to try ; see which works better for you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is there any significant difference in effectiveness and side effects between armodafinil/ Nuvigil and modafinil/ Provigil for narcolepsy/sleep apnea?
Nuvigil is the right: side of the Provigil molecule. Efficacy & side effects are the same. See http://www.diffen.com/difference/Nuvigil_vs_Provigil. Provigil now comes in a generic form.

Very different: Strattera (atomoxetine), (atomoxetine) a non-stimulant, works quite differently from ritalin. Ritalin works within minutes but wears off later that day; it can be taken or skipped day-to-day as needed. Strattera (atomoxetine) has to build up in the body and may take several weeks to have an effect; it must be taken daily. Ritalin works about 65% of the time; strattera, (atomoxetine) about 45%. When they work, though, benefits quite similar. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi, I have ADHD, Inattentive type and NOS learning divisibility. Whats best for me? Concerta, Adderall XR/IR, Vyvanse, (lisdexamfetamine) Ritalin, Methylphenidate??? :)
Works for some: Another drug, that works well for some people, & doesn't work for others. In my expereience it doesn't work as often as the stimulant meds, but if people can't tolerate the stimulants, it is nice to have this option. It does need to be taken on an increasing dose over about a month. If it does work, it works most of the day from just one dose. Like an antidepressant, you need it in your system. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
