Adderall dosage?

My daughter started Adderall a week and a half ago. She's been taking 1 10mg pill a day. The doctor said to increase to 2 pills if there is no improvement and no side effects which there hasn't been. Does this mean 2 pills in the morning? I assume so but the bottle says 1 pill twice a day so I'm a little confused. For those of you with children on Adderall what is your dosage and how/when are you giving it? Thanks!

I would also agree with 15 mg and see how she does for a little bit.

yes, she would take both in the Morning. I would go to 15 mgs first however, 10mg is a big jump. I would ask the Psych about doing that instead....if it all possible.

A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.
