What is the best add medication for adults? I'm being told that adults shouldn't take Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and that's what I've been prescribed.

Individual Response. All of the medicines for adhd are helpful about an equal percentage of the time, especially the stimulant medicines, which are the most commonly used meds for adhd. As a result, it depends on how an individual responds to a specific med. There is nothing about Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) that would cause more potential problems than the other stimulant meds, so i would suggest you try working with it.
