Avatar f tn They say adderall causes insomnia... Its obvious, adderall is a legal form of speed. Most would say adderall is the last thing a restless person would or should take. However, at this point i see no other choice. here is my rational. --Because I cannot sleep, I lose the ability to focus in class. Because I can't focus, I don't learn as much as I can during class time.
Avatar n tn He may also be getting sick because the adderall could be effecting his sleep. Adderall also comes in 5 and 7.5 mg. You could try a lower dose or switch to a less potent medicine like Ritalin.
Avatar f tn I started taking adderall in January (going on 3 months now). About 3 weeks ago I started waking up very tired and with swollen hands. On top of the swelling my knuckles had bumps on the sides and backs of them and my hands would itch. The pain then started shooting up my arms, particularly the left arm, and then to my shoulder then to my back. Then last week I was experiencing muscle weakness. So much that I would have trouble walking or driving. I went to 3 drs.
Avatar m tn If your anxiety is so debilitating that xanax is the only way you can function, I think taking adderall may likely worsen your depression and anxiety symptoms. Also, 60 milligrams/day of adderall is WAY too high a dosage for the amount of time you've been taking it. Since your starting out at such a high dose, when your body starts breaking it down faster you will end up with sky high dosages in a short amount of time.
880242 tn?1241286605 Its name alone would change my whole youth into now. Adderall...... I was put on Adderall. I gained my hopes and dreams again. But this time my mind was on a different fuel. It was not the same. It was much cleaner fuel. I took it as my mother told me to. Since I was 15 years old, now 28, I have been on Adderall. I started on low doses like they always start you out with. Now I am "supposed" to take 30 milligram tablets 3 times a day.
Avatar f tn Something that you really need to be aware of is that toxic symptoms and signs of overdose can happen even with low dosage milligrams. Popping Adderall every couple of hours will only exacerbate side effects because they are usually intended as extended release capsules/caplets, to be used only once daily. The amount you have taken in the last few days is seriously dangerous. For more information you can check out the FDA site for the "Adderall Medication Guide"...
Avatar f tn I was on methadone for six months. Tapered down five milligrams every single day but towards the end I began substituting the lack of methadone with heroin for about a week. Monday was my last line of heroin and on tuesday I took three v icodins. That night my withdrawals were intense, second the same. My worst symptoms are always the wls. So on day three I was given a very small does of chlotopan.1mg I slept five hours yesterday and eight today. Im feeling much better just extremely sluggish.
1099014 tn?1295626030 If that makes since. So in escence I am taking 10 more milligrams of adderall a day, which equals 60 mg. Damn that's a lot, but it doesn't feel lke too much because I can still concentrate really well. I also have a cup of coffee between classes, just to reboot.. it's cool it does not make me manic.
Avatar n tn Adderall XR 25 milligrams , dextrostat 10 milligrams for afternoon, and effexor (75)for mild depression, mind you. ( I think the adderall was causing the havoc made him tired all the time and rollercoaster mood swings. ) So, got recruited to college for golf but couldn't function for 18 holes. Taking leave of absence this semester to get well. Doctor put hiim on prozac because easier withdrawal symptoms.
6565971 tn?1382489362 Hi, the loose stool could indicate an infection of the bowel gastroenteritis. An occasional loose stool could also be due to indigestion. If you get repeated symptoms check with your doctor to rule out an infection. What your grandmother had could have been due to anal laxity or incontinence, this is due to problems in the spinal cord. So, you dont have to worry, it's unlikely your symptoms are related to nerves.
Avatar f tn hi I've been taking paroxetine for about 15 years I started taking them after all are 4 years ago I take 400 milligrams of adderall a day and that was prescribed for seizures. I was recently at the doctor and I discussed my depression getting worse so he prescribe Cymbalta.
Avatar m tn - the meds he is taking, - what kind/bran? Is he taking Ritalin? Concerta? Adderall? Alternative Meds? - how many milligrams, - how many times a day, - whether or not he is on other types of medications and/or has other health problems. Put all of this info -- along with his age, when he got diagnosed & how long he has been on the meds, and how long he has been depressed and falling asleeo - and address your email to the FORUM DOCTOR.
447130 tn?1225474466 I have been on Ritilin and Concerta in the past, but had negative reactions to both. About 3-4 years ago I switched to Adderall and was very happy with that choice. I started on 20mg of XR and over the years increased to 40mg of XR. I also had 10mg regular pills (not XR) to take when necessary, ie: on days I would have to stay up late to finish homework, study, or work late etc.
Avatar m tn 00pm. 70mgs of Adderall total a day. Of course it's difficult to sleep with amphetamines so I am taking 10mg of Ambien, and 1mg of clonazepam at night. Is anyone else experiencing this too? Should I be frightened with the amount of pills I'm taking? Thanks!!
Avatar n tn A while back I used to use cocaine in recreation, although I no longer do. I've just been prescribed adderall, which, due to my ability to somehow become immune to things very quickly, has been upped to 40 milligrams a day even though I'm only on the third month. Sometimes I take 20 mg in a day, sometimes 30 (by cutting immediate release pill in half), and rarely, if I have a lot of work, then I take 40 or 60 milligrams in a 12 to 14 hour period. I'm a 21-year-old male.
Avatar n tn I was on xanax 2 milligrams a day equivalent to 40 milligrams of valium. i crossed over to 20 milligrams of valium to slowly taper off. i am down to ten now. and once in a great while i take a 1 milligram xanax if things are real bad. My doctor wanted to switch me to klonopin also and i told him no. Xanax and Klonopin are the two strongest benzos around with such a half life in the body. Switching to Valium is a true and tried success for many, many people. Its half life can be up to 150 hours.

Avatar f tn amphetamine (Dexedrine®, Adderall®), methamphetamine (Desoxyn®), and methylphenidate (Ritalin®). Other Schedule II substances include: amobarbital, glutethimide, and pentobarbital. Schedule 3 Substances in this schedule have a potential for abuse less than substances in Schedules I or II and abuse may lead to moderate or low physical dependence or high psychological dependence.
Avatar f tn 10MG which is what I am taking now, when I first got put on Ritalin in 7th grade they had me at 56 ****ing milligrams!!!!! I sweat an unbelievable amount...imp literally waiting away.... when I presented my doctor with these symptoms they switched me to concerta........nothing, literally concerta did not even phase me....went to my doc and they switched me to adderall which brings me to what im taking now...10 mg of adderall daily and I love it!!
Avatar m tn A couple days ago, I made the stupid decision to take a few extra ADD meds to help me study. After 7-10 10 milligram Adderall tablets(taken two or three at a time with at least 4-6 hour interval in between) and day and a half of studying without sleep, I started feeling quite weird; my heart began beating very fast(~130 BPM), and my extremities began to tingle. My dad drove me to the hospital where, after lying on a hospital bed for a couple hours, they told me that I would be fine.
Avatar f tn Also, what kind of general anesthesia would I be getting as I have a seizure disorder and take Tegretol XR twice a day at four hundred milligrams per pill? I also take Citalopram and Adderall at ten milligrams once a day for depression and attention deficit disorder. Thanks, I would appreciate a quick response to this question.
Avatar n tn I am going to quit next month by going from 75 to 37.50 and the 0. I thought maybe the Adderall (45 milligrams a day) stopped the withdrawals but I don't think thats the case after reading some of the posts here. I know I should feel really lucky but I am confused and a little scared. How long does it normally take for symptoms of withdrawal to start after quitting or lowering a dose.
Avatar f tn I took OXY and ROXY up to 300 milligrams a day... It took a long time to quite but it was a trial and error thing.. you have to find out what works for you!.. EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT!! I went to a program outpatient... "THE WELLNESS CENTER" In Tarpon Springs FL.... I was lucky enough to have someone help me pay for it... BUT YOU DONT NEED THIS.. you just need the KNOWLEDGE.. you can do it yourself... FIRST- know that opiates decrease your dopamine levels!
Avatar m tn It worked very well for my symptoms but caused chest pain, pretty severe actually. (10 milligrams 2-4x/dy) I then tried Adderall. It also caused some minor and fleeting chest discomfort--but much less than Ritalin. However it caused my heart to really race and beat hard (at around 5 mg) in addition to insomnia. Like Ritalin, it also worked very well for my symptoms. Next I tried Strattera which did not worked and only caused side effects (80 mg/dy).
Avatar f tn Now, it is 120 10/325 per month for the last 4 months. Plus he gives me adderall and tramadol. However, my scrip gets filled in 10 days and I only have 8 left. I decided this is it. They sit in my cabinet and I have been off of all three as of 56 hours ago. I will never judge again. Thank you so much for those who post here. I am a praying man and in those prayers when I seek for help when I fear I can't do it, I mention all of you.
Avatar n tn My doctor and I have a long relationship through which I was taking Adderall for ADHD. I have never felt any desire to abuse Adderall and always have filled my prescriptions late so my doctor thinks of me as “low risk for abuse”. I am also disinclined to abuse benzodiazepines and sleep aids. This means it is easy to ask my doctor for Xanax and sleep medications and such. However, I consider myself susceptible to psychological dependence to these drugs, as I am a chronic insomniac.
Avatar m tn Giving young children with attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity, and learning disabilities at least 2 teaspoons of cod liver oil along with 300 milligrams of GLA (and 200 IU of vitamin E as mixed tocopherols) daily is very safe and will likely achieve the same or even better results observed by Dr. Portwood and her team.
4407520 tn?1363015465 <> So I need to do a hardcore detox. My counselor said more than 5mg a week is too much, but she doesn't understand that I'm dying. It's my life or death, I feel. As long as I'm not having hardcore pain from withdrawal, I will live. I just want my body to start working like it should! I started at 86mg and now I'm at 70mg. I need to speed up this process because I can't live like this anymore.
