Hi! I am adult with ADD, and have been on Concerta 54, 27, and Focalin 10 mg. daily for about 7 years. About a year or so ago, following a change in our health plan, the focalin was switched to generic, and the difference in cost made it prohibitive to get brand. Now, the same has happened to the Concerta(s), and , after 2 months on the generic, I'm not feeling the love! It definitely does not work the same (for me)- and there is a $ 90. difference , and in my case times 2! since I'm on the 2 doses. I want to now try something different, that will be covered b/c there is no generic yetâ€¦.possibly Vyvance 70 mg., Would you suggest that that was the best choice? Or recommend something else? Thanks so much!View Thread
