Adderall 20 mg xr v adderall 10mg ir (3-4 a day)


I'm 33, in college, i'm a mom & wife and live a busy life. I have been on adderall 10 mg for about a year, maybe more. I take 2 10 mg at 6:30, by 9ish, it's gone, so I take another 1, by 12, if I have any work to do (so nearly everyday) I take another 1. My doctor changed my perscription to 20 mg xr. Is this going to work? Thanks

Unfortunately, it's impossible to say. You're going from 30-40mg daily to 20. If your issue is ADHD, it may work; in many (though obviously not all) cases with ADHD less is more. If your issue is chronic fatigue brought on by a busy schedule and too little rest, it likely won't do the trick, as you will be getting less amphetamine overall.
