View Full Version : Switching from Adderall to XR

09-12-09, 11:32 AM
I've switched from the short acting adderall to generic xr, 15mg. But I don't think my dosage is enough. I was taking 10mg regular adderall 3x day. The XR doesn't work as well. My doctor wasn't happy to prescribe it in the first place, I'm afraid to tell her I need a higher dose.

Anyone know if 10mg 3x day is the same as one 15mg XR?

First off welcome applego9!! And no I do not believe your dosage was high enough to begin with and then to make things worse not better he cut it in half when he switched you to 15mg. XR once a day!
I take two 25mg. XRs a day, so I do get through the whole day.
I suggest you hang in there and try to get your point across to your doctor that your dosage is simply too damn low.

What brand of XR are you taking? are you paying for it out of pocket? because the brand and generic are still almost the same price

What do you mean he cut my dose in half? And no I don't pay out of pocket, my insurance will only cover the generic.
