Dosage for Adderall XR
Usually, 10 mg is used as a beginning dosage once day in the morning. Typically, a modest dosage is introduced and then progressively raised. Individual requirements must be taken into account while determining the appropriate Adderall Xr dosage. It is not advised to use more than 30 mg per day.
You may take this medicine with or without meals. Combine Adderall Xr with water or other beverages before swallowing. Avoid breaking or splitting the capsules. Small pharmaceutical pellets within the capsule are created specifically to release their contents into the body gradually. You may break open the capsule and sprinkle the ingredients over applesauce. The applesauce shouldn’t be kept for subsequent use; it should be consumed right away. The pellets from the capsule might be harmed if you chew the applesauce. For the entire dosage, consume all of the applesauce that has been sprinkled.
