    This generic, in my opinion works the best for me. However it has a "all or none" effect, meaning one minute it could be in full force, the next, it's not. It is however extremely effective and puts all the other generics to shame. I would compare this generic and its effects to that of Shires Adderall XR (name brand), really I would. The "crash" from this is no tap o ... Show Full Comment

    I have taken adderall xr 20 for 10 years and it has always worked well for me. My prescription coverage through blue cross blue shield recently changed and they will not cover name brand anymore. The pharmacy will tell you dextroamphetimine is the same but if you compare the two on this website you will see they are not. So I will have to find another alternative because this med makes me loose fo ... Show Full Comment

    Been taking 10+ YEARS and it has worked very well for me. I use the ER Spansule Caps (time release) for Adult Onset ADD due to other medical problems.

Now that I am retired I only use the extended release spansule/capsule. I've not expe ... Show Full Comment

    I just started taking Amphetamine, 10mg in the morning and 10mg around noon. I feel it has helped me focus on tasks and I have more patients. I can have a conversation with someone without my mind wondering off. I actually wait for the person to finish what they are telling then respond. I do find that I am not hungry and have had a little bit of a hard time sleeping but I have to say that the goo ... Show Full Comment
