However, the dose of Adderall XR your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Your age
  • Other ADHD medications you have tried
  • Other medical conditions you may have
  • Other medications you are currently taking.
     
Refer to the following table for the recommended dosing for Adderall XR based on the person's age:
