What's the difference between Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and addrerall xr? When it comes to adults, for task focusing, which is better? Please advise

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.

Not likely . Over the counter formulas can provide some benefit and can be tried first. Unfortunately they do not usually provide the same effect as prescription stimulants.

XR? Depends if adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) or adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) itself has a very short half life (4-6 hrs) meaning the time for half to be metabolized. XR is more like 8-12 hrs. 5 half lives means there is negligible amount left in your body so either way all of it should be gone by now if you only took one pill. Read more...
