Hi JoJo, I am a 30 yr old female <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I take a combo of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Add<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>all</span> XR <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>regular</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Add<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>all</span> HERe is my schedule: 6am: 20mg xr 10am: 10mg regular 1pm: 20mg xr and 10mg regular 4pm: 10mg regular So, it's by bodyweight 1mg pER 1kg of weight: I weigh 70kg, so 70mg is just right for me, I find that it lasts through 8-9pm, then I take 1mg klonopin to help with the "drop off" and to help me fall asleep.
I am a junior in college and was diagnosed with ADD last NovembER and as a result my doctor prescribed me two <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Add<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>all</span> prescriptions. One of them is a 20mg XR <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the othER is just a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>regular</span> 5mg. The first 2 months i was taking AddERall evERything was great, i was doing bettER in school and I actually started to enjoy studying and learning new matERial for a change. But for the last month or so, i've noticed a change in my behavior. I feel almost disconnected from reality if that makes since.
Hi Ed. Thanks for your response. I can tell that your feedback to my post came from your knowledge of heart issues and possibly expERience (i did post in a heart forum aftER all) and not from expERience with stimulant medication. I haven't been able to find anything stating that a pERsonal should discontinue use if heart-rate increases. Could you please share your link/source? Increased heart-rate is listed as a side-effect.
haha, I used to be like this, I took it for 3 years and off and onn through high school and college, stuffs no good, you'll think its great while your on it but soon you'll come to need it for evERy challenge life throws at you, my advice stay away but you can do what you want, one more thing, the only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>diff<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>ence</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Add<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>all</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> crystal meth is that one is base form and one is chemical form,
What is the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>diff<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>ence</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> Wellbutrin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Wellbutrin SR? I realize that the SR is a sustained release, but I would like more information. The reason for this is that I am looking into buying drugs in Mexico, whERe they can be a lot cheapER, and still be the exact same med. They have Wellbutrin, but I don't know if it is the SR yet or not, and want to know if the diffERence would make a diffERence with my spouse.
I was also on a vERy low dose of Prozac and only 20mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Add<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>all</span> a day back then. I suspect my psychiatrist must have known how Prozac <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Add<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>all</span> intERact. AftER I stopped the Prozac, he didn't seem surprised at all when I asked him to increase my daily dose of AddERall to 30mg a day. "make the patient psychotic on the resulting toxic reaction. This toxicity, with symptoms ranging from feeling jittERy to paranoia, is common.
If his problems are more school than home related you might find that he doesn't need the third dose at all. I only took 2. I've nevER taken ConcERta but I have taken <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Add<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>all</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Add<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>all</span> XR (extended release) as an adult. I really don't think thERe is any diffERence between an ADD drug and the extended release vERsion as long as you take the medicine exactly when you are supposed to.
I've nevER taken Lyrica but i have a friend who takes Lyrica as pain management for Deep Vein Thrombosis and he tells me it works vERy well for him. For the CFS i have taken <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Add<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>all</span> XR for almost 6 years <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it is the only thing that has worked for me. i take a rediculous amout but my doc says its safe and its the only thing that has allowed me to be normal-ish. I don't know how amphetamine would affect your heart condition though, so it may not be a good choice for you.
My son was diagnosed with ADHD, is in counseling 2x pER month, is being tutored 2x pER week <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> is taking 15 mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Add<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>all</span> XR daily. He is getting all the help <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> support we can possibly provide to him, but it doesn't seem to be enough. His most sERious issue is his night fears/inability to sleep through the night. He sleeps with the hall light on, a nightlight and a radio on low all night long.
Hi, I have been on Effexor XR for 3 years <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I have gained about 40-50pounds, most when my dose was increased to 225, now I am on 75mg b/c I'm getting ready to wean off the medicine in a couple of weeks,and I haven't lost anything yet. My eating habits have not changed and I exERcise. I have always been undERweight and I could eat whatevER I wanted...I'm only 26 years old...I know my metabolism has changed some, but not enough to pack on 40 pounds.
the nausia and headaches & vomiting haven't bothERed me so far. I do need to keep close to the bathroom which is a vERy typical side effect of the med. I know I need to watch my diet to really get the best results along with exERcise. This gets easiER with weight loss so the met is helping me to get more active. I am concERned about firming my body up aftER the weight is gone, especially the stomach area. I do ab work and workout with light weights to help with this.
So then I started on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Add<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>all</span> XR <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was fine for awhile. Although I do like Vyvanse bettER <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> next month will be switching back to it. But the thing of it is, we all know med's that treat ADHD are stimulants. They diffER slightly depending on the brand, but all in all they are usually stimulants. These stimulants, which evER they may be, are used to treat ADHD for the purpose that someone who has ADHD has imbalanced dopamine levels.
Dear Belinda5, I currently take 30mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Add<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>all</span> XR. I am howevER 39 years old <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 6 feet tall (170 lbs). The 10 and 20 milligram doses nevER worked for me at all, not since day #1.

I was on YAZ (for cramps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> pms) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Add<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>all</span> (for adult attention defecit disordER) at the same time for about a year, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> started feeling faint while at work and in public. A couple of times I felt numbness in my face, and decided to go off of both. Many times I felt as though I couldn't fill my lungs up all the way with air -- so I would do breathing exERcises. I did research and found that both wERe responsible for causing blood clots and strokes.
People who live the longest sleep 7 hours pER night, not eight, so don’t worry about getting 8 hours of sleep. Most people need <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> 6 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 8 hours of sleep to function effectively during the day. 2.Get out of bed within a half hour of the same time evERy day, including weekends, no mattER how little or poorly you have slept. 3.Reduce your time in bed so that it more closely matches the amount of sleep you avERage each night. 4.Use the bedroom for sleep and sexual activity only. 5.
*Constant tiredness (even when I get enough rest, and I can tell the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>diff<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>ence</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> actually being tired or lacking sleep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> simply just feeling tired) *SevERe inability to concentrate (previously diagnosed as ADD) *I've had one known seizure as a child that was latER thought to be related to my learning disabilities (ADD). and ovER the past year or so I've expERienced these issues: *Migrains or clustERs, I do not know which of these it is...
At any exERtion, sweat would pour from his head <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the rest of his body <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he would continue sweating for a long time aftERwards. Heartburn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> acid reflux, especially at night. Flushing in the face, without apparent reason. His doctor diagnosed him with depression.

I take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Add<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>all</span> xr <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am told that Mg is a potentiator(it makes it work bettER) but it can make it work TOO good and can be dangERous, and all the ppl that actually abuse their add meds do that(thats how I kno it does that) but I dont abuse mine so Mg scares the s**** out of me, lol. The addeall helps my brain fog alot, but not fully of course, but I dont plan on getting off of it, at least until im bettER and can function normally.

This was by the hospital dr. YestERday, he went to his primary <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> got more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Add<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ER</span>all</span>, at 30 mg. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>regular</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a Valium (not sure of the dosage). To me, it sounds and looks like he's getting ready to start abusing his meds, again. As it is, he was supposed to take 2 Lithiums in the morning. He's already decided to reduce it to 1. He's done this for a long time. He's also a VERY good manipulator, vERy pursuasive and tends to lie A LOT. Should I call his primary doctor?
I was 16 when I was put on Effexor XR. Depression started when I was 11, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I had been on othER ANTIdepressents. I must say the worlds view on antidepressents is REALLY messed up. I might jump all ovER the board when I say this but I STRONGLY advise anyone against taking Effexor as a drug to ease the pain of life. Yes its a great drug when you first start and evERything seems to fall into place. HowevER I am now 20 years old, and I have decided on my own to stop taking this horrible drug.
Good Morning Tramadol Warriors, Welcome to the room, snuggle down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> make yourself comfy. You can quit tramadol. You can stop. You can recovER. I believe in you!
You're in the right place if you want off the Tramadol! You can do it! I believe in you!
It makes me vERy angry that these Doctors know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> aren't telling people. I don't believe that they are ignorant. I've been ovER <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> ovER it again and again. It makes no sense that I would know more as a usER of the drug than they would. ThERe's so little on Tramadol or Ultram on the web. Tons on othER drugs. Ok so the most alarming part of the Tramadol we would think would be the fact that it is a synthetic opiate. It's a Narcotic. It's just been slipped thru the schedule.
ThERe is a link <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> being constipation <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> gaining weight. I'm hoping once I get myself '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>regular</span>' again that I'll see the weight fall off.
At this point I start getting concERned if I am going to keep going to full blown mania or am I going to start spiriling down,and if that happends how low am I going to go and what is it going to take to get back to my confort zone For me during mania thERe is a fine line <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> elation <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> paronia. But thERe is almost always aggitiation when I start comming down and I usually sleep for a couple of days and become antisocial.
It was a life savER, but it also medicated all my feelings into oblivion and put me in a limbo state that was a vERy poor place for decision-making <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> facing cERtain realities. So, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>between</span> that, the sexual side effects <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the weight gain, I went off - with my doctor's blessing. The withdrawl symtoms wERe tERrible. AftER a vERy nasty few weeks, I feel bettER and have lost about 4 pounds.
