Adderall Question
May 24, 2004
... Hi, 10 mg is not actually *that* low a dose - most start on 5-10mg of Ritalin or 5mg of Dexedrine or Adderall (Amphetamines are around 2x as potent as Methylphenidate, i.e. you only need half the amount of Adderrall or Dexedrine to get a similar strength of effect as Ritalin). From what I have read/heard etc, it seems that it is often people suffering from hyperactivity... (3 replies)
