      I currently take 10mg dextroamphetamine twice a day but wears off early. Do I increase the dosage to 15mg or something else. I have tried to stop taking medication but it doesn’t work. I do not have problems with eating or sleeping. I just need to focus. I do not like taking medication but realized I can’t I keep myself busy all day until I go to sleep. I walk at night with my dogs for an hour to wind down. Any suggestions would help.

      That’s a question for your prescribing doctor. When your medication is optimal, your doctor may increase the dosage, change your medication, or add an additional medication, depending on your unique needs.
