Are there any non prescription medicines or herbal remedies with effects similar to concerta or adderall? I cannot afford prescribed meds w/o insurance as of now. Thanks.

personally i take dexedrine and have not found ANY med or herbal remedy that compares to it....i do, however, take dl-phenylanine daily to help prevent neurotransmitter burnout which accompanies stimulant use...if u cannot afford your medication, the drug companies have patient assistance programs available if you qualify. i am currently receiving my medication through glaxosmithkline's program "bridges to access" i reapply every 3 months and only charged a $5 copayment for each month...there is a website that has all this information on every major drug company but not sure if i can post that site on here or not...any moderator's reading this? can i post this website as to help other people find out how they can qualify for these programs?
