Global Perspectives on ADHD (2018)
Social Dimensions of Diagnosis and Treatment in Sixteen Countries by Meredith R. Bergey
Concerta is a methylphenidate formulation designed for slow, sustained release and thus considered less habit-forming than other stimulant formulations. Whereas noncontrolled-release methylphenidate formulations are simply not indicated for ADHD, Adderall (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine), a common treatment elsewhere, is completely prohibited—possession of the drug is punishable by a prison sentence. These regulatory constraints necessarily and directly shape ...
by Paul H. Wender
The only cautionary note about Concerta is that because it is so convenient, physicians may use less Dexedrine and Adderall. This would be unfortunate because there are a substantial number of children who do not respond completely to Ritalin, who respond better to the amphetamines. What would therefore be very useful is a preparation of the amphetamines that lasts twelve hours. Such a product has been developed and experimentation is underway. Initial results look promising ...

My Midlife Journey with Adult AD/HD by Gabriella West
For example, Concerta is a long-acting form of Ritalin that stays in the body for 10 -12 hours. Daytrana, a Ritalin patch, lasts for 12 hours. When evaluating a patient , the doctor will choose whether to give you methylphenidate (Ritalin, in various forms) or an amphetamine medication like Adderall. Another drug, Vyvanse, is in its own category. It becomes an amphetamine once ingested and lasts for 10-13 hours, the longest-acting stimulant. Both of these types of drugs are stimulants, ...

Concerta is an osmotic controlled- release product (OROS) of methylphenidate. The tablet has an immediate- release overcoat that provides an initial dose of methylphenidate within 1 hour after administration. The overcoat covers a trilayer core. The trilayer core is composed of two layers containing the drug and excipients, and one layer of osmotic components. As water from the GI tract enters the core, the osmotic components expand and methylphenidate is released. The initial ...
A Communication Approach to Evidence-Based Care by Elizabeth M. Varcarolis, Margaret Jordan Halter
Concerta is an extended-release form of Ritalin that allows once-daily dosing. Adderall is another psychostimulant (containing dextroamphetamine and amphetamine) that also calms the patient, and it is available in extended-release form. Approximately 70% to 90% of people with ADHD do fairly well when prescribed stimulants; however, because of side effects or nonresponse, up to 50 % of patients may discontinue psychostimulants (Strange, 2008). Research on alternative drugs is ...

by J. P. Schadé
Treatment for ADHD may involve: - medication (for instance, Concerta or Ritalin); - behavior modifications; - psychotherapy; - special diets. The exact treatment approach used varies from child to child, but almost all children benefit from a tailor-made combination of several methods. Even if some symptoms disappear, treatment may be necessary throughout childhood. Many children with attention deficit/hyperactivity syndrome benefit from medication. Although it seems to parents that ...
