Adderall different effects at different doses?

I was on adderall XR 10MG for about 3 months now, I Just saw my doctor and he bumped me to 20MG, but its like it has a much different. I have amazing concentration but I become EXtremely hard to deal with(Very Serious)
all my buddies are joking around and I cant join them at 20MG like I could at 10MG.

its like 10MG made me happy and have the ability to concentrate if I need to.
20MG is like I have to concentrate 100% and have no other choice with 0 personality.

I thought 20MG would be like 10MG but only more intense and longer.
Its not though, its a total different experience.

any suggestions?

BTW I asked my doc for 15MG instead of 20 but he said they didn't exist.

Re: Adderall different effects at different doses?

The symptoms you describe indicate too strong of a dose. You are likely activating the fight or flight responses (which can make you irritable).

Lol, what is wrong with doctors?! 15 mg don't exist? How about you get 1.5x your 10mg dose and break one 10mg in half and pop it with the other 10mg? 10mg + 5 mg = 15 mg, voila!

Amphetamine is uber powerful, if one doesn't have an extremely high tolerance, you can totally notice the difference in doses at 5 mgs!

Drop back down to 10mg. Your doctor is an idiot.

To do that, you open the capsule and swallow 1/2 of the orange bid content (don't chew, it may give you nausea) and keep the rest for the next day, like this you're using 1x 20mg capsule for 2 days.

Re: Adderall different effects at different doses?

I think you should stick with 10mg pills so that you have the option of doing either. some days that extra bit is needed to get all your work done. but dont make it a regular habit or else your tollerance will go up and you'll eventually build up to using 3 or 4 times as much as you started out on which is a lot to put your body through.
