    SWIM just picked his first rx for adderall and he knows he could have got it for cheaper at a deff pharm but he wasnt sure if it was covered by his insurance so he took it to him normal pharm. The damn thing was 155 bucks. I dont have that kind of doe every month for pills. IS IT TOO SOON TO ASK HIS DOC TO BE SWITCHED TO DEXEDRINE SPANSULE 15mg SINCE THE GENERIC IS COVERED?

    I was on Aderall XR 40mg for one month after I had to be removed from 60mg a day of Ritalin. I went to my Doctor who I've been seeing for 4 years. I told him I couldn't sleep because of the XR and that I'd like to move to Dexedrine 10mg 2 times a day.

    Dexedrine is D-amphetamine sulphate and about the best stuff for a writer, like me, for focus. I'm on 20mg in the morning and 10mg afternoon. 90 pills comes to $20 after insurance.

    (I know that prices shouldn't be given but Dexedrine is generic only and has just one pharmaceutical maker for non-XR).

    It can be hard for some people to just TELL their doctor that they have used it before and found Dexedrine just a better product for less $$$. They may push you toward something else but if you have been with your doctor for a few years they will listen and let you trial it.

    I won't lie and say I didn't abuse it for a little while but amphetamines build your Ego up off the asshole in you. I treat it like a tool now.
