I wanted to give you all a giggle. For the past 2 prescriptions, my PCP has written this on the paper prescription: 10 mg XR 24 hours extended
The XR gives my 4 good hours of focus, but that is all. I also have a medical absorption condition. NO extended release anything lasts very long for me...that's just the me....

Don't feel bad I'm in the same boat, they up'd me to 1-20 mg XR and it's dead 4-6 hours tops. Some days it doesn't even work. But I have metabolism the speed of light too, so I'm sure it doesn't help matters.

Aderall xr does not last long enough to give you coverage for the whole day. Its not meant to last more than 8 hours at most if you are lucky. I have absorption issues as well, and I take my doses 5 times a day. Most people get about 5-6 hours out of one dose. I am not sure why doctors get this mixed up.

You're right, I'm still trying to figure out how to get that across to my doctor without screwing myself. I could probly get by with an IR in the morning and the XR of an afternoon but probly not for long.
