Discuss with doctor: who prescribes the Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). A person can develop tolerance to medications such as Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). It is not unusual for the dosage, form, or even the type of medication to need to be adjusted over time.
