Re: Adderall XR vs Adderall
Brenda, my son is doing great with a combination of Adderall RX and Strattera. The great thing that has happened is that they seem to both cancel out the negative side effects of each other.
He started out on just Adderall RX, it didn't work to well. Then we switched to Concerta, it kept him up at night and very emotional. Back to the Adderall RX which was working as long as we upped his dosage each month. Now he is on 25 mg of Strattera and 15 mg of Adderall RX. He is almost 8, weighs 49 lbs. He is eating better, sleeping great, making great grades and having really good behavior. And he is happy! You might talk to your doctor about combining the Strattera with something else.
