I was diagnosed with ADHD when i was 9 yr old (24 now). I took concerta from then until i was a freshmen in high school and stopped myself. In college, as school became harder, i started again. I was prescribed adderall tablets by my doctor, and I have been taking that until September 2014. So for about 4 years off and on, which it was off and on because of appointment scheduling and insurance reasons. I recently had to stop because of the change in the controlled substances act and had to be re diagnosed by a psychiatrist in order for him to prescribe the medication. After his assessment he said he would prescribe concerta. I know from experience this has worked for me(most recent); and i know the side effects it has on my body, and i am used to those side effects. So with light of the recent events i am wondering why wont prescribe it?
any insight will be greatly appreciated, thank you

Hello, James! How are you?

Many doctors do prescribe according to experience, they'll pick the medication that they have found to work best for the symptoms they have been presented with. However, the only way to get a definitive answer would be to ask your doctor.

According to the Concerta website, it is a stimulant that's most commonly used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. It carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, insomnia, nervousness and weight loss.

Is there anything else I can help with?

So i see i left out a few details. I had asked my doctor why he wouldn't prescribe the adderall because that is what i have been taking, and he said he doesn't prescribe it. He said the tablets are only prescribed to children.
