Why can't i crush my (generic) Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR before i take it?  I have problems swallowing pills; i tried the "applesauce " method.

One possibility for you if you have trouble swallowing pills is the use of vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) which can be dissolved in water and taken that way. This is known as the "aliquot" technique, as is described in the package insert for the drug. I believe it is also a superior medication. ...Read more
