5mg makes me sick but 10mg is fine

I was recently prescribed adderall 5mg, i know ive had adhd for a while but just recently went to the doctors. anyways he started me out on 5mg, i started taking them and i honestly dont see a big difference. i could feel the side affects, i had drymouth and my head kind of felt fuzzy..i dont know if that makes sense. well i kept taking it to see if would work... i then decided to take 10mg. after i took 10 i felt a little more focused but most importantly i didnt notice the negative side affects. does that make any sense? does it take a while for you body to get used to it and thats why i dont notice any negative side affects anymore?

Yes, it does make sense. 5mg was too low a dose. You took 5mg just long enough for your body to adjust. If you took 10mg at the get-go the side effects would have been worse. Now that you are acclimated, 10mg is controlling your symptoms without side-effects. Tritation works.

Ask your doctor to prescribe 10mg if he/she hasn't already done so.
