First Prescription for Adderall, first few days it kicked in in a hour and lasted an hour after it kicked it in. Now, it usually kicks in 10- 45 minutes, but still usually lasts an hour( Trust me I know exactly when it works and when it wears off). When I go to my doctor he will most likely increase the dose, but would 20 mg make a difference in lasting 6 hours like it should? I'm afraid since I have a high metabolism it would only last like 2 or 3 hours. I'm pretty sure my doctor would allow to have 60 tablets instead of 30 so that would help to. Mainly just wondering because some people told me a higher dose wouldn't really make a difference in lasting longer. Also side effect wise it does make me a little calm where I would rather not talk but will if I have to, a bit less creative, very mild nausea for a little bit while I'm on it, but I still think that the good effects are worth those mild side effects.
I don't have any experience with the XR version of Adderall. I will, however, tell you I take 20mg of regular Adderall twice daily and the alchemy so-to-speak works just fine. Bottom line is always speak to your doctor--and make certain he or she is listening to what you're saying as opposed to hearing sound bytes emerging from your vocal chords. Yeah... I know... ha ha, only there is a truth buried in the comedy, and it's this: a good physician who actually listens to what is being said by a patient is a physician to hang onto. Many doctors simply run a revolving door operation--in you come/write a 'scrip/out you go.
Best of luck and do keep us posted! marzboy777
