Hello..my 15 year old is currently taking adderall (generic) 10 mg tablet, not XR. I have a set appt.for her coming up to discuss changing her to an XR for it to last throughout the end of her school day. Right now the dosage,I’m pretty sure is not lasting through the day.
If anyone has any advice on this and does anyone know if maybe the dr will lessen the mg to a 5mg XR.
Thanks
