Taking Adderall XR And IR Together Vs. At Separate Times?

Recommended Posts

I have a prescription for 10mg adderall XR and one for 10mg adderall IR.  It says on the bottle to take the XR in the morning, of course, since it lasts for 8-12 hours.  However, the IR simply says take one pill every day.  Is it usually most effective taking them at the same time?  Because that's what I've been doing, but I was wondering if that was usually what people do.  Or if people generally take the XR in the AM and the IR later in the day.

Sorry to give the canned response, but it's something you'll want to talk to your psychiatrist about, because he/she chose to prescribe in that fashion and presumably had a thought process behind it.  I was personally prescribed an XR amount to take in the morning and then an IR to take early to mid-afternoon because of a feeling like the XR dose was starting to fall at that point.  Kind of like an extra boost.  But I'm sure that there are other ways to do it for other reasons.

Adderall XR is 50% IR/50% ER, so I imagine what the intended purpose was for the IR prescription was for extended coverage into the later part of the day, unless you need a boost in your morning dose, but I'll have to differ to your pdoc and say you'll need to ask your pdoc.
