What is a fair dose of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) to prescribe to a new patient? I was prescribed 40mg for the day (20mg & 20mg)...THANKS! :)

Might be high. that's a hefty starting dose if you've never been on stimulants before, unless you told the doctor you had that level previously and that it was well tolerated. You might want to try alower dose if this makes you too jittery.
