adderall

6601982 tn?1383754936 Unfortunately most doctors don't know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> to use it. Doctors <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> an 8hr class and pay $10,000 and then they are experts. Ugh!
Avatar n tn Will you continue at this level indefinately if it continues to work? Do you ever <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> a drug holiday to flush the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span> out, and if so, for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> often? Do you employ any non-drug related coping skills during this period? Do people's bodies develop a natural resistance to adderall over time, or does this occurr only in cases where the drug is being abused? If your body (brain) does begin to adjust and become non-responsive to adderall, then what?
Avatar n tn Thank you for your quick response. Can you tell me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> would it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> for me to know that the tic is temporary or here to stay?
Avatar n tn adderall (a combination of dextroamphetamine and amphetamine) is a prescription stimulant used to treat adults and children (over the age of six) with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span> was the second drug to be approved to treat ADHD, following Ritalin’s already <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> stay on the market. The FDA approved adderall in 1996 and later approved adderall xr Extended-Release capsules in 2001.
Avatar n tn You will hear miracle stories of how it helped improved grades and behavior at home, but I assure you it's only temporary and most people I know that have began taking amphetamines at an early age have other issues now as adolescents such as depression, bipolar disorder, etc.
5717054 tn?1372962145 iv been on Valium forever it stops my paranoia some of my anxiety and insomnia and vertigo too much benzo has paradoxical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effect</span>. I just started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span> 20mds <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>xr</span> First day was bad i figured cause my anxiety.
Avatar n tn My worry is the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> term <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effect</span> of being on ADHD medication. They both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> 12 hour Concerta, which was the best choice of all options given to us. My oldest seems to handle it very very well. My youngest is doing well on it too. But needed just a little boost so I am hoping it will be enough to add the Clonodine instead of increasing her dose of Concerta.
Avatar n tn Haven't been able to be calm enough to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> a yoga class since I started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span>. I used to be calm and capable of being "still", which has stopped because my mind races. This drug is perfect for our society today. It does make you feel more confident and give you a better mood but it's the drug (superficial) and not the "real" you.
Avatar n tn ' When I started to develop a slight apathy, and weight gain related to that apathy, I was reduced to 50mg zoloft. About a year later I was prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span> (10mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>xr</span>) and noticed it had a tremendous effect on my attention and concentration. When I graduated from college and got into the routine of the working world everything fell apart. My slight apathy became crippling, virtually destroying my social life.
Avatar f tn I mean if you are living anywhere back East or in the Midwest in this sucky weather and stuck indoors - I would be super depressed. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span> is not going to fix that. Do all you can to get outside. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> the child and walk the indoor malls. Yoga classes, gyms, etc. Do something to change up things. Things are very different for you now then they once were. You may be expecting too much from the meds? Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn They wouldn't mislead you. If you need to quit, they will tell you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> to do it safely. Good luck! Let us know how it goes...
Avatar f tn And people that have changed to different drug... Please no post telling me not to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span> and I'm aware of side effects. Thank you!
Avatar n tn You feel like a new man. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> two if you need to because I honestly do believe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span> gets your body temp down. That's why you'll get goose bumps in a warm shower that feels unusually hot.
Avatar n tn The only thing that I have knowledge is a gap in time, which I noticed on my forum when snorting adderall, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> my entries jumped rapidly from week to week. I use to write daily but when I was taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span> I never even wrote anything or remembered what happened, and it made me insane. It was insane and it made me very depressed, driving me to into partial insomnia for a short period. It reminded me very much of Fight Club if you have seen it.
Avatar n tn I should also mention that I am on 30 mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>xr</span> for ADD. My Dr. decided to switch me to Wellbutrin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>xr</span> which would also help me quit smoking. He had me drop down to 75 mg of the Effexor for a few days, then to 37.5 for another 2-3 days. The first day off the Effexor, I experienced increasing nausea, vertigo and a "slushy" head. The next two days, the symptoms increased. There was some confusion as to whether it was the Wellbutrin or the Effexor that was causing the symptoms.
Avatar f tn I would personally prefer to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> or intermediate acting medicine. The only problem with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> acting is that I have read that for some it lasts 14 hours. That may not really be a problem for me later on after I decide what type of progress I have made. Gotta go scramble up a couple of eggies. I'll check back again soon. Thanks again.
Avatar n tn Can somebody tell me if it takes a while for this to happen? or have any other comments on weightloss with wellbutrin as to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> you were on it before you noticed the weight loss? Thanks. bo.
Avatar n tn I'm drinking a lot of water, taking it easy, loading up on vitamins, and watching my diet. Does anyone have any other suggestions on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> care of yourself during this period? Thanks to all of you who have posted - every one of you have helped me understand that I'm not crazy and that I'm not alone in this. Peace.
Avatar f tn It doesn't matter how <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> I go without anymore, all I do is sleep. The only way I have motivation to do anything is to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> the pills. caffine/sugar/excersize/5hr energys...nothing else works or even helps. My doctor says its not addictive - well my doctor must be a ******* idiot because that is exactly what it is and as for the adverse side effects like lack of energy, motivation, diminished mental state, depression, and everything else I don't know if there's anyway to fix it.
Avatar m tn I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> regular <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span>, so I'm not sure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>xr</span> last, but I can only assume it's probably 10-12 hours. Did your doctor recommend that you take both pills at the same time, or your regular 5 mg later in the day? I take 20-30 mg (in 10 mg pills) of adderall, but I have been diagnosed with insomnia (due to another disorder). So I know I shouldn't take my adderall after 5 PM, since it has a life of 3-5 hours, if I want my sleeping pill to work.
Avatar f tn I lost 110 lbs in a little under a year on adderall the doc had me on 55mgs of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>xr</span> daily.... <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span> to me is a leagalized form of meth-amphetamines, or "ice" But like someone said before every drug works differently for each person adderall in my case is the only one that works for me. But, drinking on the medications she is taking daily isnt the smartest considering that the alcohol makes the drugs do the opposite they are supposed to.
Avatar n tn I believe the way to solve this problem, and it clearly is a big problem because it leads to remission, is to make a very formal point do the task without <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span> NO MATTER <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> HARD IT SOUNDS. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> the SATs without it, the MCATs, whatever. PROVE to YOURSELF, that you don't "NEED" adderall to perform well or feel good. I hope I can someday follow up on this post with “I haven’t thought abour adderall for a year.
Avatar f tn You must understand that ADHD restricts the amount of dopamine that is produced in the brain, and it is dopamine that allows us to feel good or happy in our lives. Needless to say, that having chemical control (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span>) over <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> much dopamine your brain produces is very dangerous for any person for obvious reasons. But you must also consider the possibility that your friend was using illegal drugs because of this dopamine deficiency as well.
452191 tn?1208758463 Also, is the mix of xanax and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span> okay to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span>? and my last question is, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> can i know whether or not i know that its a panic attack and not heart condition? i'm sick of going to the ER and i'm pretty sure they are sick of me. I want to stop the adderall but I really do need it for school and stuff.
Avatar f tn Am reluctant to say much because of my feelings about not being good enough and having nothing to offer. I'd be inclined to keep trying to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> the Vyvanse that seemed to help you so much. You can PM me anytime you want. Despite different problems we are both in a lot of pain and are not able to benefit from all our years in academics.
Avatar n tn She wanted the 11 pills of adderall to wear off from Tuesday but she couldn't go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> without her pills without being super depressed. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> can she over come this?! What can i do to help?!?! Please an advice!!
Avatar m tn My resting HR when I wake up in the morning is 60ish and my normal heart rate at mid-day is 80. It goes down in the 70's at night. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>adderall</span> seems to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effect</span> my HR 4-6 hours a day. It might be raising blood pressure as well (more on this in a sec). I live pretty unhealthy. I don't exercise and I eat way too much junk food. My maternal side of the family also has a history of heart disease.
