Avatar n tn Consult your doctor about the prospect of taking a drug holiday or gradually reducing the dosage so that you can lower the tolerance you have built up. While it is rare to overdose on stimulants such as adderall, there are serious health risks that could be detrimental. The drug can cause a chemical imbalance in your brain that would take months...even years to stabilize.
Avatar m tn i have taken vyvanse, and adderall (unprescribed) on a couple of occasions to help me with my school work, but this afternoon i had one of the worst experiences of my life. i had purchased a 70 mg vyvanse pill, took 1/4 of it yesterday and the other 3/4 this morning, so today i was on about 50 mg.
Avatar n tn I know someone that I care about dearly who takes 25 mg of Adderall a day for ADD. The other night she was taking pills like candy and going insane with them and just swallowing them. She took about 280 -300 mg of adderall all in less than a couple of hours was basically like on speed. She is 120 pounds, 16 years old and is about 5'4''. She couldnt eat and was having panic attacks, and puked, but refused to get help. She wouldnt let me help her and i was afraid of her.
Avatar n tn I recently discovered that my 49 year old wife has been taking my sons adderall for a year. She has been taking 20mg. per day. She also takes celexa for depression. I am concerned that she is addicted and will have withdrawal problems. I have hidden the adderall from her and she no longer has it available. She relizes that she has a problem and has commited to quit. What are the withdrawal symptoms, how soon after she has quit to they show, how long to they last and how can I help.
711721 tn?1229569242 First marijuana, got addicted to cigarettes, drank occasionally, took an adderall or other small-time prescription drug occasionally. However, nothing ever too serious. I didnt like any of it though. I wanted something that would take me beyond the edges of the human mind. Basically, i wanted to trip. To make a long story short, i found myself with what i was looking for at my finger tips. Dextromethorphan hydrobromide, or Dxm HBr. Commonly found in cough and chest congestion medicines.

6601982 tn?1383754936 This is the first time I have EVER taken Adderall or anything like it. I didn't know it was a massive amount. I had been on 6 Percocets a day for years so thats why I took 6 of them. I have never taken a massive amount of anything til last night and I didn't even know. Im not a scum bag druggie or whatever who does this stuff, I just made a mistake.
Avatar n tn It's adderall. Have you read all the side effects of adderall before? You should. It crazy all the stuff it can do to a person. Even some of the "symptoms" of addreall "overdose" or "abuse"....are really common side effects. With any medication there are side effects...but whats common?? 1/100....2/100...25/100?? I mean do most people throw up, have tremors, depression, uninary tract infects to a precription sleep aid or a allergy pill? I doubt it.
Avatar f tn Hi there, Yes, Adderall can cause withdrawals when it's used recreationally, abused, and sometimes unintentionally. 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.
Avatar n tn This Tongue problem is the side effect of using Adderall medicine. Adderall should be used as prescribed and should avoid overdose, this tongue problem is a minor side effect and if your problem isn&#39;t resolved thn you should need to contact your health specialist. Maybe there is a issue with your dosage.
Avatar f tn but I did eat a few saltines and a very small amount of unsweetened applesauce about two hours ago which didn't stay down for more than 30 minutes ..... vomiting is getting more rapid..time between pukes is getting less...:(... please help me asap.
Avatar n tn I am currently on 60 mg of Prozac, 300 of Wellbutrin, and 1mg of Clonazepam at night. There's still an immense amount of static in my head, even though I've come very far. Now I'm wondering if at the core of all of this is ADD, because I've read that it's common for those suffering ADD to develop mood disorders. My parents and doctors think I smoke too much pot, but it balances everything else, and I know this static and disorganization is in my head, it's not pot.
Avatar n tn i am curentaly on 150mg Zoloft, 15mg Zyprexa, 15mg Adderall, and was on Wellbutrin 300mg untill and overdose that lead to a seizure. i am a heavy smoker and let me say that it helps with my depression better than Zoloft. i am diagnosed with ADHD, paranoia Skitzophrenia, bi-polar mania, depression, social phobia, and borderline personality disorder. My interactions with the prescription meds and pot is great.
Avatar f tn So your son has been on Concerta for 2 years? What other medications did you try? My son has been taking Adderall for 3 years. All the other medications caused him to have headaches. One in particular gave him a migraine that landed us at the ER and him getting an MRI. The adderall, at 25 mg, has not affected him at all with adverse symptoms. He sleeps well, eats well, etc.
Avatar m tn Everything I have read says that you have it for life. However, as you get older you (hopefully) learn how to compensate. And the older you get, the more control you usually have. However, if you haven't learned how to compensate or deal with the ADHD, thats when depression, anxiety, or self medication can set in. Having said that - the big IF is - was it an accurate diagnosis of ADHD. There are things that can make it seem like you have ADHD.
Avatar f tn I am tired no matter how much sleep I have had, and I always need a nap. Also, I am prescribed to 30mg Adderall XR for my ADHD that I was diagnosed with when I was 13, and thank god, because it is the only thing that keeps me awake. -I fainted about a month ago: I was leaning on the back of the couch and I had a pain in my right butt cheek that shot down the back of my leg.
Avatar m tn Hi there & Welcome, Are you getting your Subs as part of a detox plan or were you using them recreationally? Did you start using them to detox & not give them enough time to reach a 'steady state' blood level ? (takes a couple of days to adjust to them) This sometimes happens where people crave the high of a full agonist (painkiller) like Norco b/c Subs are only a partial agonist & therefore don't supply the same euphoria for heavier users.
Avatar f tn Anyone out there know anything about this drug? My 8 year old son was on Strattera until yesterday. He had been on it for about 4-5 months. It was helping his behavior and his grades improved SO much, I really hated that we had to change, but it was causing rapid heartbeat and it was too rapid!! He didn't say anything, didn't know it wasn't supposed to do that. So, when we discovered it, I took him back to the doctor and we changed to VYVANSE.
Avatar n tn The other thought is that if you are taking more then the prescribed amount. Its possible that your doc needs to up the dose. So that you don't need to take more of the ineffective med. How much and what are you taking? Also, a good high protein breakfast will extend the effectiveness of most stim meds. And, a good nights sleep is also really important for functioning the next day. So, basically, a lot going on here. Hope I can help with a bit more info from you.
Avatar n tn Many drugs can do this...... 2 - what drugs have the affect of adderall to help him focus? Adderall is a central nervous system stimulant. It affects chemicals in the brain and nerves that contribute to hyperactivity and impulse control. 3 - when do i get his family involved? i come from a close-knit family and already told my parents - we were going to have our engagement party soon which i've already postponed but he hasn't confronted his parents.
Avatar f tn six months into the relationship he would be so wound up hardly ever sleeping for three four days...i knew something was up...i found adderall in his dresser hid in an altoids tin..his excuse methadone makes me so tired i have to have something for energy. i was pissed but what could i do he swore the drugs were done...they never were. we have battled this for 5 years...
2127265 tn?1335336467 the cold turkey detox will not come back and bite the doc in the butt....the overdose will. I am in no way saying you would overdose or anything like that. I am just saying if it is a new doc who does not know you well or anything they may just not be willing to take any chances. It isn't worth their license.
Avatar n tn - 20mg zolpidem - 230mg diphenhydramine HCI - 1000mg acetaminophen - 1000mg+ ibuprofen - pot... idk not THAT much but a good amount im 6'1" and 220lbs, im not fat but my BMI is like a little over average. 220 would look pretty overweight on most people but i'm a generally big guy, big shoulders, football player etc. so once again, not very fat for my weight. pretty healthy, no health problems, just occasional heartburn/increased blood pressure when i take Adderall in the morning.
Avatar m tn 75mcg Fentanyl patch every 72 hors 3-4 8mg Dilaudid tablets per day 1-3 2mg Ativan per day 1 50mg Trazodone for sleep PRN insomnia PRN Adderall 20mg 1-3 times daily (this is used infrequently) In the last 3 years is when I began using Fentanyl - it's very helpful with the pain. My tolerance to opiates is very, very high. I worry about what would happen if the doctor stopped prescribing or laws changed. What do I do?
Avatar f tn I am a 24 year old female and have been taking 3 different medications for a little over a week straight, only one of which is prescribed to me, and i would appreciate any advice as to how great of a risk i am taking relating to the chance of overdose or death, the warning signs of an overdose, the chance of death, the chance of seizures, which i am terrified of having, of warning signs of a seizure, and any advice as to the amount of damage i may be causing my body and brain.
Avatar f tn ) So for all of you parents out there reading this talk to your doctors about tweeking your childs meds if you think that their sideaffects are too rash from this. And about the original topic of adderall. I was on Adderall for a short period of time and i HATED it. I had censitivity to light, headaches, and my concentration was horrible. And i know Jennifer is gonna say something like im proving her point well guess what im not.
1386425 tn?1280122758 Drugs that act as agonists of GABA receptors (known as GABA analogues or GABAergic drugs) or increase the available amount of GABA typically have relaxing, anti-anxiety and anti-convulsive effects. So there's a paradox here. I think relatively small amount could have relaxing proprieties without having anxiety symptoms attributed to the lower GABA actvity.
3198928 tn?1345257003 My addiction to Lortab, Percocet and even Adderall had completely destroyed my life in every way. I lost my job, my home, filed bankruptcy, got a divorce from my husband of 7 years and almost lost my son. Even jail didn't affect me enough for me to quit so I continued to use. Its funny to me that you can take those medications while on probation, as long as you have a prescription. But I finally reached my stopping point in November of 2011.
