loss of focus on Adderall
My son 16 recently switched from 72mg of Concerta to 20 mg xr of Adderall because of headaches ticks and he felt it took away his personality. The Adderall was working well the first 2 weeks then it stated to not work. He went up to 25 mg xr adderall and it has made him space out a lot. We tried 30 mg xr Adderall today but still spacing out.
He really needs to be on the correct medication this summer so he can make some good friends.I’m letting him go to a church group this summer and he will be on his own spending a week away from home. Doctors don’t seem to understand how important it is to have him on the correct dose. Cant seem to find a good Doctor that will take time to look at his ten year history of medication even though I bring them in and ask them to look at them.
According to a chart I saw 72 mg of Concertta would be equal to 40mg Adderall xr. Do you think the spacing out is from too much Adderall or not enough?
