      My experiences with Adderall and Adderall XR were drasticaly different.

      I began the XR (extended release) form two months ago. I would take the 10mg upon waking up. As I went about my day, I would feel a creeping increase in energy and alertness.

      By midday, I would feel positive, and ready to work. I would feel a

      little bit of a boost in the early evening, as I did my reading. I only felt nauseous once, which did not deter me from continuing the drug.

      Last month, I began the generic form of Adderall (amphetamine salts). I would take 20mg in the morning, and 20mg at around 3pm. The increase in energy and ability to concentrate ...

      • is much more situational.

        I take the drug, and an hour later, I find myself working, reading or writing. I take less breaks. I have more of a determined mindset than I did on the XR.

        Some nights, I have trouble sleeping, but not to the extent that I would consider going off the drug.


        doctor and I have decided to stay with the regular form of Adderall. We also might increase the dosage as my blood pressure has remained normal, and my body weight has remained constant.

        I would not go recommending a controlled substance to anyone who has trouble concentrating. But if your doctor prescribes it, I say, give both forms a chance.
