    I have been on Adderall for almost 2 years now. I like the XR pills MUCH better than the fast acting pills, but can no longer afford them due to recently losing my job and health insurance. I used to take 25mg (XR) in the morning and that worked well, and I noticed less side effects. Now I take 10mg of the generic amphetamine salts 2 x's a day. Since starting on the medication I have less dif ... Show Full Comment

    My son is taking this medication for his ADD. He was on Concerta previously but it caused him to have some patches of hair missing in the back of his head after 3yrs of taking it. He started on the Adderall about 2 months ago and thank goodness has never had any of the side effects that go with certain ADD medications. I am very satified with this treatment and he is able to concentrate at school ... Show Full Comment

However, the symptoms are not lessening and I must ... Show Full Comment
