Converting Adderall Ir Dosage To Dexedrine Ir

James Says:

I currently take Adderall IR 20MG twice daily.

My question is this: How many MG of Dexedrine IR would be equal to Adderall IR 20MG?

How do you convert Adderall IR 20MG to Dexedrine IR 20MG?

Hello, James! How are you?

Usually, these medications are considered equivalent in dosages, so a 20mg dose of one would require a 20mg dose of the other to be therapeutically equivalent.

The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, weight loss, irritability, and other mood changes.

What dosage your doctor recommend?

The old name for the dexedrine IR was called dextrostat. The dexedrine does not last as long but has a much smoother taper IMHO.

The doses are for most intent and purposes similar. I would recommend getting 10 mg stats (lowest dose) until you get used to the subtle differences.

Unfortunately the adderall from barr was a better option.
