      I was recently diagnosed with inattentive adhd. Have worked up to a prescription of 20 mg xr every morning and 10mg IR as needed in the afternoon. I would much rather do two doses of 20 mg xr per day as I don’t really like the Adderall IR. Is there any precedent for this? Will my doc be ok will prescribing that? Does anyone else not prefer the IR experience

      I have seen some people prescribed two XR doses in a day. It’s uncommon but it does happen. The only way to know if your doctor is open to it is to ask them.

      Just ask your doctor if you can take all xr, you don’t like the IR and take one in the morning and the other in the afternoon. The doctors I have spoke with won’t prescribe the XR and IR together. When I mentioned taking one in the afternoon one time my doctor said not to do that. I would rather take one in the morning and one later to last all day.
