    Adults w/ ADHD- Wellbutrin to...

    question for all adults out there that are medicating ADHD/ADD.
    I've been on Wellbutrin SR for about 4 years now. I was on Adderall and Dexedrine together prior to that- those worked fabulously.
    I'm relatively happy with the Wellbutrin but as of late I've been feeling that things could be better. I can't switch back to a stim. because of my current job. I don't remember what info about which drug- but have any of you been on wellbutrin and switched to Strattera or Concerta?
    My hesitation to try is because things will be bad if those don't effectively treat my ADHD- so I wanted to know what experience other adults (only) have had with those. Thanks for sharing your experience ahead of time!

    Concerta is Methylphenidate... same thing as Ritalin... so it's a stimulant as well.

    I am an adult male 36 years old with ADHD. I have tried everthing there is in regards to medications to treat the symtoms. Wellbutrin made me sick, very nervous. Concerta worked fine while I could afford it. It is basicly extended release Ritalin. Adderal made me feel weird and gave me depressionafter the drug wore off. Strattera did not help me out at all. I get the best results from 5mg Name Brand Ritalin 3 times daily. THis is the perfect dose for my semtoms. But everyone is different.
