Is it acceptable to ask my doctor to try Adderall XR Capsules instead of Vyvanse even though Vyvanse has been working decently for me? I have a suspicion that Adderall Capsules (XR) may work better since my brother and dad both like taking them and find them more effective than Vyvanse. Is this a reasonable thing to try to ask him about doing or is it better off to stick to something now that I am comfortable with? I am undergoing the start of a new college school year so this time is very taxing on my stress levels, but I want to see if there's a way he would be comfortable letting me try Adderall XR Capsules.
