In brief: Extended release

Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) xr is the extended release form of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) (this means that the effects last longer than a faster release form).
The longer acting form helps to prevent marked changes in levels of the medication. Some people like immediate release and some like extended release.
