    So what would be the best way to inform a Psychiatric DOCTOR that she doesn’t understand how medication works? I now know why she said that most of her patients find Adderall XR to be weaker than IR. She gives half the daily dose with XR!

    Thanks for the replies. I just don’t understand why she would tell me 5mg of XR is the same as two 5mg doses of IR spaced 4 hours apart. The part that bothers me is that she would be thinking she’s prescribing me double the amount of what it really is (in total mg for the day).
