Avatar m tn I do not have ADHD but but I don't focus on cyberschool very well and was introduced to adderall about a year ago to help me focus. I would take half of a 20 mg pill once a day and it would do the trick. After school was out I stopped taking them but school has started again so I have started taking the adderall again. At around 1:15 in the morning on Sept. 4th, I took a whole 20 mg because I was a bit behind on work.
Avatar m tn If you don't mind. What symptoms did your brother have? And did he have ADHD?

Avatar n tn Children do not necessarily respond in a similar fashion to the various stimulant medications. In other words, a child may not do well on Adderall but do perfectly fine on Concerta. Activation, hypermotoric behavior, psychotic episodes, and other reactions can occur in response to stimulant medications. That is why it is so important to have a child followed closely while on medication.

Avatar m tn the minute you deviated from the prescribed amount you entered into addictive behavior now you may only be in the early stages and my not even agree with me but I dont candy coat it your heading for deep water and addiction will su ck you in quicker then you thing adderall is a powerful stimulant taking it the way your taking it is like doing meth you just got a purer form of it...
Avatar m tn this was due to a cocaine overdose which in reality is the same as speed/adderall etc...races the heart and can do permanent damage...he has "locked in syndrome"...he is awake and alert but can not move a muscle in his body...the family is uneducated and will not make him a dnr(do not resusitate)...he has been coded over and over,,,poor thing...
Avatar n tn I'm sorry I'm late finding this post and I hope by now you've either started feeling better, or have sought medical attention. More than likely what you're experiencing (experienced) was a case of low blood sugar. As I'm sure you know, the Glyburide-Metformin helps to lower the blood sugar of someone who has diabetes. If you take it and don't have diabetes, it can cause an unsafe drop in your blood sugar.
Avatar n tn with her physciatrist today and I am afraid of her getting a higher dose. What do I do?! Can She die if this is continued. Please. Do i need to get her medical help? She wanted the 11 pills of Adderall to wear off from Tuesday but she couldn't go long without her pills without being super depressed. How can she over come this?! What can i do to help?!?! Please an advice!!
Avatar m tn So, when you broke it up, you removed the only thing that manages the amount digested at one time. So what you need to do is call 911 and tell them that you have overdosed on x amount of Vyvance . If you are worried about your parents finding out then simply refuse to give your information to the hospital you are taken to. They will still have to treat you because it is a life threatening emergency. After treatment simply leave without saying a word to anyone.
Avatar n tn None of the positive effects of the adderall were ever felt, like the motivation to do anything, tingling in legs, talkative, etc. Then I began to have random muscle spasms, had a headache and didn't feel well at all. When I finally got home (midnight), none of the positive effects of the Adderall had still not hit me, and I began to feel nauseous. At this time my girlfriend was at my house and I was lying on the bed and I began shaking.
Avatar n tn Since then I have been having a really difficult time finding the words to express my thoughts. I know what I want to say but when I try to speak my mouth uses different words that don't convey the idea I'm actually thinking. Hard to explain. Apparently I am able to type my thoughts but I just can't get them across in my own speech. This has been going on since 8am this morning. Any thoughts or knowledge of this experience would be greatly appreciated!!
Avatar n tn I find it intresting to read what michael writes ,but I do question he's own self awareness,he says oxy is a wonder drug,true,he says that he wishes that he had gotten it so he would not have the tolerance he now has,and this is where i get confused-hasent he pointed out many times that all narcotic share the same tolerance(allowing for the conversion factor of course,ex 10 ms inject=75mg im=30 mg oxycoDONE by mouth=2mg daludid iv,i could go on but i made my point)so i want to know how having to
Avatar f tn I've been on brand name Adderall XR 15mg pills for a few months now, and I've never had any problems with side effects other than suppressed appetite. Thanks to our new insurance only covering the generic, I had to switch to a drug "identical" to the brand. When I initially told my mom I was worried about the switch, she told me they're the exact same thing. She's a pharmacist, so I took her word for it. Fast forward to today, when I started the generic. The day was fine.
711721 tn?1229569242 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. In high doses, it produces a euphoric effect and is very hallucinogenic. I was using the taboo product to get this, though. Coricidin Cough and Cold.
Avatar n tn The symptoms could be due to the drug itself or due to overdose of the drug. However there are other possibilities too. Talk to your doctor ASAP. This also looks like an episode of transient ischemic attack wherein the blood supply to brain is temporarily cut off. The episodes last for a maximum of 24 hours and then resolve or a new symptom starts. Please consult a neurologist. You will need to undergo a MRI of the brain. The second possibility is seizures.
Avatar m tn Hi There I'm a recovered alcoholic/addict who was prescribed Adderral for depression and the associated fatigue. I do experience a high if I take too much, which is so hard not to do my doctor needs to mail them to me daily. We tried it as a last resort for my depression and it is used off-label for this purpose in treatment resistant cases. I've got big doubts that you can't get high from these meds if you have ADD/ADHD.
6601982 tn?1383754936 You need to get checked out to make sure you're okay and review your aftercare. Do you go to NA? Do you have a sponsor. Please let us know what you're planning to do and let us know what the doctor said. No matter what you do, you need to be seen by a doctor, sooner rather than later.
Avatar f tn thats the problem. I want to be like normal people who get up and do what is on their to do list and call it a day. I cant seem to focus on what has to be done or even the steps on how to get it done. late at night I remember important calls I should of made, always missing deadlines like the power bill so the power gets shut off. I dont get out of bed,or take care of myself. my boys get feed and bathe but other then that they just watch tv and play with each other all day .thats with no meds..
5717054 tn?1372962145 I took adderall and didn't have those side affects. Please talk to your doctor to see what could be the cause of this and if you should continue. Good luck!
Avatar m tn If he is too busy to explain to you what to be looking out for and what to expect - then allmymarbles is right. You need to look around for another doctor. Since it kind of appears that you really don't have a lot of information on ADHD - I suggest you get the book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley. You can get it via Amazon for about $10. It will help you now and in the future. But first, you want to get to the doctor and tell him/her exactly what is going on!
Avatar n tn I have tried using time release Ritalin, but I find that it doesn't work close to as well as the Adderall. The main reason why I would like to try somehing other than Adderall is because my insurance won't cover it. The main reason why I've only had a problem with alcohol is because I was afraid to try cocaine or opiates due to the history of addiction in my family. I did use marijuana daily for over a year, but that was a couple of years ago.
Avatar n tn I've been taking Adderall 30mg almost everyday for the past 2 weeks. After i take Adderall i get a craving to smoke ganja. Without the Adderall i smoke every other day, might go 3 days without pot every now and then. When im on adderall i feel like i need to smoke, to make the rest of my day more interesting. I'm really trying to quit, well no im not, but i want to..because it will make me feel more energetic and focused throughout the day.
Avatar f tn First off, does anyone know what happened to me? Did I have a heart attack or overdose? FYI I was addicted to adderall the past 3 years and was actually clean for 4 months before I started recently taking again. Since then I have been having what I think are panic attacks. I had one the morning after I woke up from the experience, that whole day I was very short of breath and pretty much terrified I was about to go thru that again.
Avatar m tn Now it is 8 o'clock the next morning and I haven't slept, there is a tightness around my heart/chest, and I feel like my body really wants to move. Almost like my skin is crawling and shaking. What should I do? Did I maybe overdose? Should I be worried? Please tell me how to make this feeling go away.
Avatar n tn I Did not have any of these problems prior to adderall use. I have been off Adderall for 48hs now, so do you think some of this is just withdrawl effects? I was taking between 15-30mgs a day, and side effects were continuing to get worse, so I would skip a day, be totally lethargic, and then take it and have all of the previously mentioned vascular effects, which scared the s___ out of me.
Avatar f tn I don't mean to interrupt your conversation, but I must say that I find what both of you are discussing is relevant to what my 13 y.o. son has be dealing with since we lowered his Concerta dosage, regarding slurred speech, tightness in throat/ difficulty swallowing heavy foods, and blinking. These are all new symptoms that he never had before the Concerta.
Avatar f tn I don't know about any withdrawls from what you described but I do know that adderall has lead people I know to the depths of hell. And they started the same way as you. Same w/ opiates of course. I would really take a good long look at what your doing. Good luck to you.
Avatar n tn I take generic amphetamine salts 20-20mg/day If I don´t want this to happen at all what I do is only take adderall 2-3 days a week. But maybe I should switch back to XR if I don´t want this tongue pain...
