Hi There Tom<br><br>Both these drugs are indicated for ADD/ADHD, and the prescriber usually makes the call based on results he/she had with these drugs in the past. Some users and some prelim studies indicate that Strattera are not quite as effective as Concerta and reltaed drugs. <br>Straterra is however often seen as first-line treatment because it has less stimulant properties than Concerta/Ritalin/etc. If treatment is not effective patients may be switched to concerta/ritalin.<br>
