In 1996, Adderall IR was finally approved for first line treatment of Narcolepsy and ADD/ADHD in the event the Popular Schedule ll Stimulant Methylphenidate was not effective for a patient. As of Today It's a first line treatment drug along with Ritalin (Methylphenidate), Dexedrine (Dextroamphetamine Sulfate), Focalin (Dexmethylphenidate), Etc.

TOM nothing wrong with questions you got 2 good answers and it has been very effective for many people just keep in close contact with your doctor and know sometimes be it us or the medication some days are better than others but if it gets to where you don't get the relief you should be let the doctor know there are things they can always add to help you out more and stay positive and keep the sense of humor. Whatever you have to do to keep the faith this is very treatable these days. So stick with it.
