My 8 year old daughter's dose was just increased Friday 9/5. Today, she has huge bald spots all over her beautiful head. I didn't even know tov watch for this. She was increased from 17mg to 35mg a day, Extended Release. I need some info and guidance on this. THIS IS CRAZY!!!

Similar experiences with 25mg XR Barr generic. I typically get brand name but money stopped me from getting it this month. What a mistake. I feel horrible and it seems like all the benefits I had with brand name adderall are gone. I have headaches, no ability to focus, and zero motivation. I meet with my doctor and I am getting brand name adderall back ASAP.
