Whats the difference between concerta and ritalin (methylphenidate) and which drug is more powerful and effective?
Methylphenidate. Concerta & Ritalin are different brands of methylphenidate, indicated for attention deficit disorder. Neither is more powerful or effective for everyone in every situation (like asking whether chevy, dodge or ford is better). I don't know about health system in kuwait, but in states, insurance companies often dictate which medication you get w/o paying extra. More important to get best for you.
Very similar. Both Concerta and Ritalin (methylphenidate) are brand names for methyphenidate, which is used to treat adhd. Neither is more powerful, neither is more effective. It is part of the art of medicine to base clinical decisions on science, while tailoring a specific medication to a specific individual. Each medicine is released differently in the body, and one may be better for you, but not somebody else.
