I recently switched from Adderall XR to Adderall IR due to the National shortage. I’m finding that the IR isn’t nearly as effective as the XR and is almost as if I’m not taking anything at all. Has anyone else experienced this? Wondering if I’m doing something wrong that is significantly diminishing the efficacy

I’ve found certain versions of the generic IR don’t work as well as other so that could be part of the issue too

I always skip it on weekends or days I’m not working. It helps keep it effective but I agree that the XR works more effectively. I’m on Dyanavel XR now because of the Adderall shortage

I have found it comparable - I’m on 20 mg and I’ve noticed that the lack of appetite isn’t as bad as it was on Adderall but I’m able to focus on the Dyanavel. I have to do the same thing with this one as Adderall with skipping weekends so I don’t get used to it

How to deal with not being staffed on deals and seeing others in your year be staffed? When asking partners directly for work, they refer you to the staffing partners. When asking staffing partners (repeatedly), they say “thanks for interest, we will have something soon.” Weeks and weeks pass by and you’re always below where you should be for billable hours (at this point, very far below). All reviews are essentially perfect and no negative feedback. Extremely frustrating and discouraging.
