Same here. For about 45 minutes I feel like Superman, then for the next hour a bit 'meh'. The final 2 or so hours are the worst as the brain experiences the bounce effect, during which I'm in a major unshakeable downer. I wouldn't want to label the feeling 'depression' out of respect to those who genuinely experience that condition but I get anxious, easily-upset, slight concerns become major concerns........not good at all.
I did try Concerta for a while but that was worse. The initial 'boost' was quicker not not as intense (even at 90mg) however as it's slow-acting the 'downer' stayed with me for much longer.
