DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
In children with ADHD who are 6 years of age and older and are either starting treatment for the first time of switching from another medication, start with 10 mg once daily in the morning; daily dosage may be raised in increments of 5 mg or 10 mg at weekly intervals. When in the judgement of the clinician a lower initial dose is appropriate, patients may begin treatment with 5 mg once daily in the morning. Dosage should be individualized according to the needs and response of the patient. Amphetamines should be administered at
the lowest effective dosage. The maximum recommended dose is 30 mg/day; doses greater than 30 mg/day of ADDERALL XR have not been studied. Amphetamines are not recommended for children under 3 years
of age. ADDERALL XR has not been studied in children under 6 years of age.


Regular Adderall can be prescribed up to 60mg per day.

Regular Adderall was FDA approved in 1996 and Adderall XR was approved in 2001 so both of these drugs are relatively new.


This information is from the FDA pharmacology report for each drug cross referenced with the 2003 PDR.

Natural and herbal remedies may be effective for some, but keep in mind that they are not subject to FDA approval so you are at the mercy of the manufacturer and truth in advertising.
