Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi iam talking adderall and it does not seem to be working. Why is this. I started talking 1 10mg for a week and then jumped to 20mg 2 times a day 6 hours appart. It was working at first but after 2 weeks have pass it seems that im starting to get distracted again. My spelling is getting bad and reading too cause im not focus on what im doing. what can i do?
Doctor :   My good suggestion is get a reviewal of the prescription
Doctor :   The Adderall is causing more problems to you rather than help
User :   would ritalin work?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   It could only be tried and can be replaced
Doctor :   One cannot say which works for one
Doctor :   Every person is individualistic
Doctor :   and the Doctor initially tries what is best for many others, you have to follow up with them
Doctor :   and see if it is helping or not
Doctor :   Otherwise he can change to a less commoner one
Doctor :   hence a treatment is tailor made
