Was using generic adderall xr 20 mg in blue capsule. Just was prescribed 30 mg generic in orange capsule, now experiencing less effect with the higher dose. Why is this?
Yeah, the other answerer had it right in that your body probably just adjusted to it. Talk to your doc.
Colloquially, I'd suggest going off of it for a few days at a time when you can, like weekends, etc., but I know you're really probably not supposed to do that without your doctor's approval. A little more scientifically, I learned in my Cog Psy class that you might want to try taking your medication in a new environment, because when you're about to take it, your body starts to adjust to it ahead of time.
Yet again, talk to your doc, but maybe try changing medications. It's possible that your body might not override different ones as quickly.
