I've been prescribed 100 mg methylphenidate per day in 3 doses for the last 15 years. My doctor is switching me to Adderal XR 20 mg instead. I tried this change yesterday and felt like I had not taken anything. I don't think I took enough Adderal XR. I'd like to know what would be the equivalent dose of Adderal XR after switching from 100 mg/day of immediate release methylphenidate. Thank you!
Jeanneal; It's going to take several days to notice the Adderall it is a combination medication and very effective. And the Ritalin is completely different which people are always confused by this change but you can't compare these 2 at all by milligrams. Please just stick with it and you should notice it kicking in but if you try to compare milligrams that would be like comparing an onion to a potato they are just two different things but work much the same. have a good day.
