Not having racing thoughts. Taking adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) to improve attention. Its not working. What stimulant to try?

In brief: No stimulant!

You want focus - there is no reason to think any stimulant will provide that.
Training is what works. Meditation, yoga and targeted exercise can help. The nature of your task is important too. Focus on a boring topic is harder than an interesting one. Drugs will be pretty unlikely to do it IMHO.
