Ritalin doesn't work for me anymore what to do ?

Patient : Hello, thank you for taking your time with my issue. About a year ago I was prescribed with ADHD and my doctor prescribed me Retalin 30mg 8hour acting pills 3 a time. Lateley I have noticed that it doesnt help me study and I feel the same after taking 3 30mg pills. I live in Korea and I read that Adderall is illegal. What should I do ?? I used Retalin to help me concentrate and pay attention but now that it doesn't work for me what do I do? Thank you for your time.
