Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) vs provigil (modafinil), which is better?

Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) Better: In my experience with children primarily Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) has a much better profile of effectiveness and less side effects. In adults a trial of both may be suggested if there is some side effect that is uncomfortable.

Provigil/Adderall: I would not recommend taking Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) extended release later than 3 or 4 P.M. , due to effect on sleep.
