    I have ADD and recently went on Concerta. I don't know that Concerta is that much better than Ritalin. Anyone have experience with these drugs?

    Concerta is like a time release version of regular Ritalin. The time release ADD meds can be taken once a day rather than a couple of times a day like the original formulas. This makes it better for some because the med is released slowly into your system thruout the day, "a smoother" effect.

    Ritalin is much cheaper. But yes, same exact thing like HL said.
