How Long Should I Trial a Medication?

Home › Welcome to the ADDitude Forums › For Adults › Treating Your ADHD › How Long Should I Trial a Medication?Hello, I was recently diagnosed with ADHD. I started ConcertaXR 18mg, felt nothing so I was then bumped to 27mg once a day.It has now been 2 weeks and I feel very tired throughout the day and by about 1pm very irritable.

I pretty much just want to take naps. Not noticing a difference with focus because I am so tired and grumpy.

I am just curious how long people typically deal with negative symptoms before making a medication change. I am a 34 year old female.There are two types of stimulants: amphetamine (Adderall, Vyvanse, Evekeo…) and methylphenidate (Ritalin, Concerta, Quillivant…).
