Is focalin (dexmethylphenidate) stronger than adderall? For example, is a 10mg focalin (dexmethylphenidate) xr the same as adderall 10mg xr, or is it stronger?

In brief: Patient dependent

Dosimetry potency is patient-dependent, not number of milligrams.
They are not exactly the same drug. Drug metabolism varies per patient. Review similarity of the drugs at : http://mentalhealthdaily.com/2015/06/02/focalin-vs-adderall-comparison/
