Intuniv vs. Adderall XR...which is better?

by Laurence WhiteRaven
(Dallas, Tx)

At one point I was taking both Intuniv and Adderall XR...Intuniv was non invasive, didnt really bother me that much except for when I stood up from sitting down, which made me feel light headed and have a dry mouth...Adderall was better for concentration on a daily level, however the amount of sweat my body already produces was doubled if I took 2 20mg pills at once...After being off of them both for about 6 months, I feel that Intuniv helped me more than the Adderall XR but if I am going to start school in the fall then I would want to be able to have Adderall on hand for those really boring classes... Intuniv: 4/5 Adderall XR 3/5 Your always going to have some sort of symptoms one way or another, just pick the ones your comfortable with =J "Be the change you want to see"
