... genaric adderall 15mg and dont feel like it does what it is suposed to. do i need a higher dose because of my weight? and is the brand adderall better?
Are you taking Adderall XR or Instant Release (IR)? What is your height? I'm trying to see if you are overweight. I am overweight and I take 30mg IR 2x's daily. I'm 5'10, so I wish I was 170 lbs. These are just a few questions to ask to give me an idea of whether you may need a higher dose. I am not a doctor. Anything I say is either an opinion or something I experienced personally.
By personal experience, you definitely need a higher dose! as far as generic vs brand... there is no difference, only the manufacturers who make it. i am 5'4" and weigh only 89lbs and take the max dose of vyvanse, another adhd med similar to Adderall XR. when i was on Adderall instant release or extended release, i was on 30mg--again the highest dose. for appetite suppressing and obesity, the normal reccommended dose is 30mg 2-3 times a day on an empty stomach.
