Well as of now i am waiting for my doc to call for a change in meds. For now i take Ritalin La every 3 hours since it wears of really fast and i hate it when it does. Would a change for Adderall be better in these situations?

Please advise

Different stimulants work differently for different people.

I'd recommend an IR booster as opposed to adderall , I don't know if adderalls available in the EU if at all

Please, can you elaborate on what you mean? We have Dexamfetamine here in Norway, is there a chance that this would work better than Ritalin and stay longer in the body before it wears off?

Dexamfetamine is much better than Ritalin in my experience :)

Dexamphetamine is definitely a sharper knife. You have to get the dosage just right or there is generally bad side effects.

It's worth a try. A good doc should be able to help you navigate the pitfalls.
Goodluck

Thx, right now i have to take Ritalin LA every 2 hours. Tho just 10mg, it wears of so fast, and when it does i feel depressed. Had high hopes that Dexamfetamine would work better for me.

My Coctail is 60mg Cymbalta and 30 mg Remeron with Ritalin LA

For me,the mood swings when Ritalin wore off were too much for me to deal with.

Thx, still waiting to here from my doc. Things does not move fast here in Norway when you need help.
