I am prescribed adderall xr 10mg morning and ir 5mg x2 afternoon. I take the xr around 6:30am then ir 5mg 11am and last ir 5mg 2pm. I have been on this combo for 1 yr now, thinking of asking if 10mg xr can increase and removing the 11am dosage just stick with morning and afternoon

I called my dr and I havent heard yet. Is xr 10mg for adult dosage? I am 34 120 lbs 5'4

Weight and height have nothing to do with dosing, neither does age for the most part. Adderall xr is officially approved by the FDA for adults. The daily recommended max for adhd is 40mg and the max for narcolepsy is 60mg. I take 60mg and most good doctors will know the difference between what is recommended and what is needed.
Either way a starting dose would be 5 or 10 mg and if that works great! But most people need a higher dose and unless you have had good results on 10mg for a year, you probably need a higher dose as well.

It is perfect actually. The only thing I dont like when at night and I know its almost time for another dose. My right eye twitch here and there. When it wears off it twitches kind a annoying.
