Too much at once: Doesn't seem "smart" to me! taking two 20 mg generic Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) tablets at one time would exceed the recommended 20 mg every 8 hours, not to exceed a maximum 40 mg per day. Recommend discussing with prescriber why you have been thinking of taking two tablets at once.

Bad?: Every medication has risks and benefits. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is a combination of amphetamines, available by prescription for adhd. It can help those with adhd, ; is not "bad" if used as prescribed. However, since it is a stimulant, some take it recreationally, and/or without a prescription to study, stay awake, etc. This is "bad": illegal ; possibly medically harmful.
