Your right I looked into it more and that is so weird both are classified as Schedule II controlled substances. I wonder why dexedrine is so much cheaper and easier to get. Going to have to ask my doctor about this one.

OK gotta update my post because I just found out something new that totally surprised me. I'll paste it below.

Adderall is the new name for a Dextroamphetamine (Dexedrine)/Amphetamine composite medication which has been around for more than 20 years.

What is Adderall (formerly known as dexedrine)?

It is a single entity amphetamine product combining the neutral salts of dextroamphetamine and amphetamine, with the dextro isomer of amphetamine saccharate and d, I-amphetamine asperate. Each tablet contains:

10 mg 20 mg
Dextroamphetamine Saccharate 2.5 mg 5 mg
Amphetamine Aspartate 2.5 mg 5 mg
Dextroamphetamine Sulfate USP 2.5 mg 5 mg
Amphetamine Sulfate USP 2.5 mg 5 mg
Total amphetamine base equivalence 6.3 mg 12.6 mg

Inactive ingredients: sucrose, lactose, corn starch, acacia and magnesium stearate.
Colors: Adderall 10 mg contains FD & C Blue #1
Aderall 20 mg contains FD & C Yellow #6 as a color additive.[/quote]
