Symptoms:  Worries about husband
Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. Yes, it is quite normal to have the medication adjusted to the extended release if the regular strength is not having effect. If your husband has a documented diagnosis of ADHD, then he can be treated with adderall. Adderall is an amphetamine class of medication which can be addictive. If your husband takes his medication according to his prescription, and is regularly monitored by his doctor, his ADHD can safely be treated.
