I was originally put on Ritalin SR and two days into it I just couldn't deal with how it made me feel. A few hours after after taking it I would crash almost immediately. Luckily, I'm pretty good friends with my pharmacist and they always know better which meds would suit the situation, so I had him write a note for my doctor and was switched over to Adderall XR.

I've been on Adderall XR for 8 months now and I really like the change I've seen. The side effects do go away over time. Personally, I expect any medication to cause some sort of side effect in the first two weeks. If it lasts longer than a couple weeks I usually discuss what's going on with my doctor.

Now that I'm going back to school full-time I'm kind of suffering later in the evening when I'm still studying. I've heard that some docs will prescribe something like 10mg IR on top of the XR to be taken in the evening. Has anyone else done that?
