Common Questions and Answers about Adderall and melatonin


Avatar n tn Hi JoJo, I am a 30 yr old female and I take a combo of Adderall XR and regular Adderall 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.
Avatar m tn htm also taken Vitamins should help if you stop taken the Adderall, but need to ask doctor how you should stop taken it. my son was on adderall and then concerta and they both have the side effect that can cause seizures. and now he has seizures and the medicine is not working. I give him Vitamin B6 and Omega 3-6-9 every day and it has helped him with his learning ,beside him having great teachers.
Avatar f tn I have tried klonopin, ativan, ambien cr, tonight for instance i took 1 ambien 4 1/2 mg of ativan and 1 1/2 mg of klonopin and i am wide awake. Not quit sure the difference between adderall and benzo's. I used to be on ridilin and now am on dexedrin which are both uppers but have sleep side affects that are supposed to make you sleepy . I am at my whits end. sorry not really much of an advice more than a comment and trying to learn what other people are trying.
Avatar m tn the real stuff...mental wd for those drugs just like coke...valerian root and melatonin can help u sleep...look around and see if u have any phenergan call it in for tummy viruses and such...helps with anxiety and sleep/non-addictive...gaba and 5thp may help as well....
Avatar n tn at night when the Adderall wears off....and prior to Adderall (and still but to a lesser degree) I had terrible sleep problems...the typical "can't shut my brain off" kind of nights. I can also relate on how the school records change, and not wanting to risk that. That being said... Medications work best when they are taken as this I'm referring not only to your Adderall, but also to the Clonazapam...the ups and downs from the meds can be really hard on the system.
Avatar m tn I have been depressed the entire time because I knew I was in deep and dont know how to ever get off both without losing a 6 figure job and letting down my family and friends. Although I have pretty much recloused myself to the point where my friends dont bother to ask to do things because they know I wont. I have a work from home job which makes things worse really, I dont have a routine or structure and there are days I cant get out of bed until noon (even if the adderall has kicked in).
Avatar n tn I would be very hesitant to take additional medications on top of Adderall for the reason that it's new to your body and combining uppers and downers is like playing "spin the bottle", and if you loose - the results could be fatal. Imagine a seesaw that's perfectly in balance; it represents your body when it's operating as it's supposed to. Adderall just sat on one end to push the balance in a certain direction.
Avatar f tn If you continue to snort Adderall it can destroy nasal and sinus cavities, and lung tissue. I took Adderall for awhile by prescription for my ADHD, and stopped because of the side effects. It's not something that I would recommend to anyone unless you're under supervision by a doctor.
Avatar f tn I have been off vicodin for over 8 days and will still feel so tired and winded so I will try the adderall to help me get my energy back. My job requires me to move so I have to do what I have to do.
Avatar f tn I love my Adderall too but I take Melatonin or Calms Forte (natural stuff) when I need to sleep and can't. I also use an alarm on my watch to remind me to take my last Adderall before 3 p.m. I also use Ginko Biloba, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Acetyl L-Carnitine to boost the effects of Adderall so I can usually get by on less of it per day, depending on what I have to get done on a given day, of course.
Avatar f tn Something that will help sleep patterns get back to normal without a prescription and all the terrible side effects that clonidine will cause is MELATONIN. My son has been taking melatonin for 3 years now and sleeps much much better. I give him 3mg 1 hour before bed and in about 20-30 mins. he goes in and goes to sleep and sleeps all night. He wakes up without that groggy feeling like sleep aids cause. They also make this in 5 mg doses for older children.
182493 tn?1348056515 For the last 4 years I’ve been using nutrition—Intravenous and oral—to rebuild and repair the biochemistry pathways in the body and mind. Over four years experience —this includes heroin, and all other street drugs, alcohol, and prescription medications--has taught me that natural detox works 100 times better than detox formulated and predicated by the use of other mind altering chemicals.
Avatar f tn Couldn't even sit at the supper table all the way on his chair. Got up and went from one foot to the other, sat down and on and on. Also he was very preoccupied with the end of the world & hell. He couldn't even get to sleep at night! We talked to him and still he had so many questions that we couldn't answer them all. This went on for a couple of months every night and several times during the day. When it wasn't that it was playing hunt on the computer of going fishing.
Avatar n tn As soon as things aren't going well I tend to panic and assume we are in for trouble. I will be patient and see how he does in the next few weeks.
Avatar m tn I have been taking benzos for 26 years. Got imprisoned on oxy (200mg day) for 18 months. For 26 years I smoked pot daily, drank heavily... very heavily. Some coke sometimes. 2mg xanax every night (I've had anxiety issues since my teens). Never tried sub. Went cold turkey 21 days ago. Still have a beer or two at night. Have my xanax but use them as sparingly as possible (.
Avatar m tn Adderall is a stimulant, so it will keep you awake, and contribute to anxiety. If you want to sleep, Ambien is great!
Avatar m tn Just went to GNC for 90.
Avatar m tn Even though being on the antidepressant and receiving therapy while I am home helps, I STILL feel like there is a huge underlying factor because I am still depressed, anxious at times, and even with adderall, find it hard to focus (and the adderall is not the reason for keeping me up or ruining my sleep, the adderall is recent and does not effect my sleep any different). I've always known that my sleep routine was horrible, it always has been, even as a child...
193953 tn?1272078626 Maybe you should take a small amount of it at night for the next week or so. I took 1/2 Xanax and melatonin and slept quite well. After that, then you can slowly stop the Xanax.
Avatar m tn 5mg ambien CR, 9 MG of melatonin and 100 MG trazedone, i have gotten 3 outta 4 nights of great rest. the night i had a bad night of rest was due to a point my psychiatrist made to me. i was waiting and anticipating for the medication to kick in. if it did not kick after an hour, then my sleep anxiety would kick and then there goes my night. its like waiting for a bus she side.
480448 tn?1426952138 or was watching the world through a movie projector, instead of through my own eyes and mind. Therefore, I am going to share with you all what *I* know about these phenomena, and hopefully reassure some of you that this is par for the anxiety while irritating, maybe even is totally harmless. Derealization and depersonalization are two terms that are sometimes used interchangably. Truth is, they DO vary a little bit in their presentation....
Avatar f tn You can do it I promise!
Avatar n tn I'm extremely tired and have been prescribed adderall by my shrink for 2 years and it helps so much with fatigue 15mg 2x day.I Only take it when I'm working ! anyone have any advice on something else that would help with fatigue? more natural?...also have pea sized lump on hairline back of my neck????? help any thoughts???
16156158 tn?1445738875 In addition to major depression (and anxiety due to depression), I suffer from ADHD and am prescribed Adderall 30mg tablets 2x daily along with Effexor 100mg tablet and Clonopin 1mg tablet 3x daily. I began Effexor 100mg tablets twice a day roughly 3 months ago. The first week or two I was manic. Heart racing, sweats and insomnia exacerbated. I told my doctor and he said take one in the morning only. I trust him as he suffers from major depressive disorder like me.
Avatar f tn Concerta has really helped my son, but he has lost his appetite and it causes him to lose weight periodically. I like the idea of Melatonin and will try that for both him and myself. Thanks for the info.
Avatar m tn I went to a sleep clinic and filled out a 2 week sleep diary and without any testing they diagnosed me with DSPD, suggesting that I take melatonin at 10pm and basically did not listen to the problems I am having. I fall asleep fine and have no trouble falling asleep or staying asleep. I realize I don't have the "normal" societal sleep schedule, but I have done it before waking up at 6 a.m. for work and going to bed at 11pm.
Avatar n tn My son is not overweight at all (average). We have tried Adderall, Concerta, Straterra, and now Dexadrine. We have finally found a medication that allows my boy to have success in school, but the negative side effects are outweighing the postive response to the meds. Has anyone heard of the appetite returning after a time?
Avatar n tn i had sex twice and everything was ok, and after the third time the problems began. my partner and i had hard sex and my penis hurt a bit when she was on top of me. i urinated a few minutes after ejaculating and blood came out along with a very big blood clot at the end. i had sexual intercourse about 7 or 8 times before seeing a doctor. the same occurred except for 2 times, in which no blood appeared.
Avatar n tn Hello, I have an 8 yr old son wjo has adhd and is on adderall xr 20 mgs he has just recently had this increase, he has also been on concerta which did not work and straterra which cause him to hallucinate. I am having a hard time getting him to eat and he is having a very hard time sleeping. the doctors have given different medications to help him sleep including melatonin trazodone and benedryl, they all seemed to have the opposite effect on him.
