Hey,

I hope I can get an answer to this question. I started taking 20 mg. adderall xr two weeks ago. I had the usual wired reaction at first but now I don't notice much difference in inattention and have actually gone to sleep two hours after a dose. What should I ask for from my dr. when I go back in 2 weeks? Thanks a lot for your responses

I think your best bet would be to simply explain the transition to your Doctor. He would be the best one to help you with your meds/dosage.

Hello and welcome to the forums.

Welcome to the forums

Usually when the normal effect wears off that pretty much means you are getting used to it...it's normal. Twoodask doct about thedosage and if you need an increase if your are just @ the right level.

I agree...talk to your doc about it...s/he'll likely up your dosage.

Hello Charlotte, hope to get to know you better. Welcome . Glad you are here. I agree with what has been said about the meds. keep track of the side effects or lack of in a journal. Then you wont forget what you want to say when you see the doctor. It usually takes 4- 6 weeks for medications to get into the system. Every person and every medication is different, so do check with the doctor Charlotte. Again welcome.
