1 doctor agrees

In brief: Possible

Even though Dexedrine and Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) are similar in chemical composition, there will be individuals that may have side effects with one but not the other. Likewise, some people may get a better benefit with one versus the other.
