    Hello:

    My Doctor had me on Dextroamphetamine 10 MG Tablets for the past 18 months. My daily dosage was 60 MG (30 in the AM and 30 in the PM) The health provider discontinued the 10 MG Tab Dextroamphetamine and replaced it with Amphetamine/Dextroamphetamine 30 MG Extended Release Capsules. My Doctor has prescribed one capsule (30 MG) a day of this new medication. I was told that the 30 MG extended relaease dosage was equal to the 60 MG regular daily dosage. Just does not sound right to me. In my past, I was prescribed Adderall Extended Release Capsules but the daily MG dosage was the same as the none extended release. My concern is that I have had my daily dosage reduced by 50% and am not happy about it. Can anyone provide me with any insight into this matter and / or point me in the direction of where I may find out? It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! L20
