I was on Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) 20mg, but my doctor switched me to Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) 20mg xr. What's the difference that I should feel?

In brief: Less dosing

Taking xr allows one to potentially have to take medicine only once a day versus 2-3 times a day.
Xr just means an exteded release compared to the regular medication.
