Dexedrine Spansules or IR or XR?

I'm currently taking Adderall IR but want to switch to Dex.

I'd prefer IR, but I've heard that the Barr ones are terrible.

I'd prefer not to try a very long acting pill that will interfere with sleep. How are the Spansules? For those who have taken them, how long do they last and how effective are they? Are the XR better?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Dexedrine Spansules or IR or XR?

I take the Barr tablets, and while they're not great, they are the only option for the IR .....the spansules, are extended release capsules......and I would rather take a higher dose that I can control better which is the tablet......


and besides, the caps don't work all that well for me anyway ....


try the tablets first maybe.....you will probably want to try each one anyway ......

I just switched to the spansules. Do you take yours with an empty stomach? From what I've read, it seems this is the best thing to do. Am I wrong?

Re: Dexedrine Spansules or IR or XR?

My experience with the spansules, which are also made by Teva (Barr), is not bad on the whole, but I have experienced a bit more sleep disturbance than with the IRs. I usually feel them kick in after around 45 mins and last about 6 to 7 hours. However, sometimes it seems like they kick in once, last for around 4 hours and then come back(!) 4 or so hours later. Very strange. Maybe I have a weird gut.

As for the Teva brand, I don't have experience with other brands but I feel that 90% of the time, they're fine. But then there's that 10% where the pill seems either too strong or too weak. I don't know if others have this experience. It's possible the differences I feel have something to do with my diet.. or my weird gut.

FWW I take 2 15mg spansules in the morning and top up with a 5 - 15mg IR in the late afternoon when I need it.
