Metabolizing meds after gastric bypass surgery

I had gastric bypass (rou-en-y) in 2003 and because of the changes made with that surgery, my body doesn't metabolize all meds in a normal manner. For instance, I don't do well with extended release meds of any type because they run through my system too fast to be effective. I've taken ADD meds for years, off and on, and at this time have been back on them for a little over a year. It seems the shorter acting meds are not working as well but I'm not sure if they aren't fully metabolizing or if my body is getting used to them. I'm wondering if there are any other bypass patients out there who could chime in and give me their experiences. My doctor understands my situation pretty well; he's a psychiatrist, not my family doctor. But all the same, I know there's a maximum recommended dose and I'm pretty much at it and not sure if I should back off them or push forward.
