In brief: It's worth trying
If you are experiencing significant side effects or a sub-optimal response from Adderall it's worth considering trying other medications.
While there isn't a "better" drug for everyone, there may be a better one for you personally. The only way to really know is to try, under proper medical supervision, of course. There is a longer acting of Adderall (or close enough to it) called vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine).

In brief: Yes.
There are a variety of medications available for the treatment of add or adhd.
A thorough evaluation will allow a physician to rule out other conditions that may be mistaken for add symptoms or to subtype the particular variant of add. Proper evaluation allows for proper framing of the problem and will hopefully result in judicious use of medication to bring about symptom remission.
