My doc switched me from Adderall IR 20mg 2x a day to 40mg Focalin (dexmethylphenidate) XR bc he suspected addy wasn't working. Focalin (dexmethylphenidate) gives me euphoria, ady didn't, bad?

Discuss effects with. prescriber. Euphoria suggests dose too high. Must study effects to determine best dose to help focus of attention without producing adverse effects. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is an amphetamine. Focalin is dexmethylphenidate. Some people respond preferentially to one or the other. It's important to observe impact on target symptoms of short attention span, frustration tolerance, activity, etc. Best regards.
