I had much better results with standard Adderall, NOT Adderall XR

Adderall XR was too much for me. It really knocked out my appetite and made me hypoglycemic and therefore very cranky. It was also very expensive. I am now on the short acting adderall and am only taking about 1 to 1/2 a 10 mg pill every 4-6 hours. This is enough for my build (120 lbs), and I feel like I can concentrate on school work and other projects when I need to, and take a break from the meds at night and on the weekend. I only plan on using it during school because inbetween undergrad and veterinary medical school, when I had a highly active teaching job, I was fine and needed no medication. I felt that my ADD actually helped me be a more spontaneous, active teacher. I'm excited about veterinary medicine because it is also a very active job with constant variety to keep me busy. I think for people with ADD, lifestyle changes supported by small doses of ADD is the best option. At least this is what is working for me.
