I am currently prescribed Adderall IR (20mg 5 times a day, 10mg 2 times a day, total of 120mg per day) for the last 2 1/2 years. I have begun having side effects (upset stomach, anxiety, weight gain) and have considered asking for something different. Much of the information I found suggested Desoxyn, being a lower dose to produce the same overall effects with less side effects. I also take xanax (2mg 3 times a day) Lithium Carbonate (300mg 2 times daily) Prolixin, or Flufenazine (5mg 2 times daily) and Seroquel (200-600mg at bed time). I would give anything to take less medicine and have less side effects, but I am reading alot of responses that say Desoxyn isnt as effective as Adderall for ADD/ADHD. Anyone have a thought? Thank you in advance, - JC
