I began taking Adderall XR but found some of the negative side effects, ie restlessness, trouble sleeping, mood swings to be troublesome. I stopped taking it for one year and returned to my problem of not being able to focus and complete a task. I asked for a low dose 5mg. (not XR) that I could take once or twice a day as needed.
