My insurance company won’t cover Concerta anymore despite a doctor’s note. The generic is absolutely not the same. Any thoughts on alternatives? Adderall?

Everyone is different, but I’ve found Adderall-XR to work well.

I just switched to Vyvanse after seeing several others on here post about it working better for them. When I asked my doctor, she said it is longer acting than Concerta. My prior insurance actually wouldn’t cover generic Concerta and insisted the name brand be used. They advised they weren’t pleased with the potential side effects for the generic. I agree that generic Concerta is not the same as the name brand. So far, Vyvanse seems to be working as well or better than generic Concerta for me. I’ve noticed some increased trouble sleeping, but I also have chronic insomnia and menopause hot flashes. So, I’m not sure it is the Vyvanse. That being said, if you do switch, make sure you take it first thing in the morning since it is long lasting. Also, make sure you read the warnings on side effects for it. They seemed a bit scarier than what I remember reading for Concerta.

Vyvanse has worked the best for me. Delayed release lasts much longer than everything else

Doesn’t help that a lot of people are in the south and offline with the snow. Any guidance as to what a path forward should be to learn to relax?
