Concerta and Ritalin

I have been taking Concerta for a few months. I have settled on 36mg for now with no issues and it is working very well. I take it at 8 every morning and I can sense it has largely worn off by 3-4 in the afternoon. My doc gave me some Ritalin to try as a booster to get thru the afternoon and evening. I understand this is common practice.

My understanding is that the base med is the same in both meds and that only the delivery mechanisms are different. My question is if this is true, why is it that I am having side effects with the Ritalin that I have Iíve never had in Concerta. Not only am I having side effects it doesnít help at all. This happens on even a quarter tablet 2.5mg.

Thanks
