Thank you for your question and welcome to Health Central's ADHD Community.

Adderall is a combination of stimulant medications. It contains both amphetamine and dextroamphetamine. The active ingredient in Methylin is methylphenidate, which is the same active ingredient found in Ritalin and Concerta.

Because the active ingredients are different, Adderall and Methylin are completely different medications. Some people find Adderall to work best to help reduce symptoms of ADHD but others find Methylin, Ritalin or Concerta work better. It really does depend on the individual.
