concerta & ritalin,

my son is on concerta 27 mg time release but by 2pm the medicine isnt working so he is getting in alot of trouble at the aftercare program. i went to the docter and instead of upping the dose of concerta he put him on a 5mg ritalin (not time released). when asking him he said concerta does not have a 5 mg (none time release) and then he went on to say that concerta & ritalin are the same thing anyway. Is this tru and is it ok to give two different medicines.


Ritalin and Concerta are definitely not the same thing. Ritalin produces the same effects as Cocaine.
