A 36-year-old member asked:

Is there a difference between taking one 20 mg capsule of adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) or 2 10 mg capsules at once?

None: Almost all medication is additive and so the dose equivalents are equal for equal amounts. For Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) you can combine them to get the dose required.
