hey eve,

i started on the regular adderall, then switched to the XR. now i take XR in the morning (30mg) and one or two doses of 10mg regular later in the day.

i personally like the XR better. i'm at the point now where i've worked up a pretty high tolerance to adderall, so neither form has a big effect on me. in the beginning, i could feel the regular adderall working a little, but when i switched to XR, i could say without a doubt that i felt it working. for one thing, it killed my appetite the entire day; that was the main indicator, though not necessarily a positive one. the xr helped me focus and settle down much more, and it gave me more energy than the regular and without the crashes that i had taking regular three times a day. even regular adderall is pretty smooth, much more than ritalin, but i didn't like the ups and downs. the XR is supposed to last something like nine hours at least, but at most, it lasted about seven for me, and now, i take my first dose of regular adderall as early as 2pm. i really like and prefer the feeling and efficacy of adderall xr, and i wish it would work for the whole time i'm awake each day. since it doesn't, taking the shorter-acting doses later in the day works ok, too.

have you tried other stimulants?
