Adderall rage

Common Questions and Answers about Adderall rage


Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with Graves and Hyper... I can usually feel if my thyroid is out of wack, and do get tested about every 6 mths with my levels staying pretty on que. However, I still have times when I feel like I am gonna pull my hair out. Everyone always looks at me like I am a crazy person, and obliviously feels that I am overacting.. If my thyroid levels are good, is this still normal?
Avatar f tn I am newly diagnosed with adult ADD (ADHD) and have a new prescription for Adderall 10mg. (generic) I have a few questions that maybe some folks have experience and can give me advice. I took my first dose yesterday. I cannot believe how calm I was, mentally calm. I was nervous that I would be speeding around and buzzing. Thank heavens this is the right med for me. Oh, my question is: I am a coffee drinker. Not really alot, I go through my phases. I enjoy maybe two cups in the A.M.
Avatar m tn Well I have been taking aderrall about 2 to 3 months. The feelings of paranoia, suspicion of others and rage have come back. So when i see my doc this week he will be switching me to something else. Adderall also makes me sweat horribly and raises my blood pressure. I am assuming he will put me on concerta or straterra I don't know. I have read many posts about peoples battles with adderal addiction and how trying to stop was a living hell. This is scaring me about coming off the med.
Avatar n tn I have been reading about the effects of Adderall. I have noticed in my son and step-son both that they have dispayed some signs of Autism. I was wondering if it was a possibility that it could be another long term adverse effect of the Adderall? They have become very nervous and fidgety, neither were before taking this medication. My step-son has the most severe sypmtoms.
Avatar m tn I find myself taking my gastro med(regalen) and my 2mg bar at @ 7AM the about 12 I take 40mg, which at times causes me to focus on one on one by myself,not with my babies in fact its caused me to be very very short with my 2 year old and snapping in rage, having to leave the house.....i just want to be the loving caring mother and wife that i was with the concentration the doctor promised to go toward what is really important, my family.
Avatar n tn Is it possible to distinguish if it's a bipolar disorder or addiction to adderall? I know for sure that a friend of mine is self medicating with adderall. Now she is admitted to a psychiatric ward with a bad psychotic episode and doctors telling us that she has bipolar disorder. She had something similar about six month ago. She stopped taking adderall and didn't take any antipsychotic medications or mood stabilizers. She was most normal I seen her in years.
Avatar m tn I did not take the adderall todday b4 work. I don't know what to do. Just take adderall on my days off? Take adderall when I am home @ night and stay up all night?
Avatar n tn Ambien only kept me asleep for 1-2 hours and so I was eventually put on 15 - 30 mg of Restoril (per night). After 2 years Provigil stopped working and an increased dosage of 200mg caused rage and no improvement of my day time wake state. 3 months ago my medication was changed by my sleep doctor to Adderall at 25mg which improved my attention and worked fabulously at keeping me awake.
Avatar m tn We have kept the Suboxone at 16 mg. Paxil at 60 mg added Adderall XR 60 mg a day ( two 30') Interestingly I've only been on this medication since January and I've been able to cut my Xanax dose down to 4 mg a day from 8 with no increase in anxiety or any withdrawal symptoms that are noticeable. The goal is to wean off of the benzodiazepine completely or to keep it between one and 2 mg a day. And yes you are right I was taking 8 mg a day that's for the 2 mg bars as recent as this December.
Avatar n tn Asperger's syndrome. Symptoms have been typical ADHD symptoms with aggressiveness,outright defiance and rage. Ritalin has unsuccessful in controlling any symptoms. Adderall was very successful in controlling a majority of symptoms but had the unfortunate side effect of insomnia. Luvox was prescribed to assist with sleep and minor anxiety symptoms. He had a horrible reaction to the Luvox. It caused further insomnia. Benadryl (over-the-counter) was suggested. Another horrible reaction.
Avatar n tn Lamictal- 200mg Abilify- 5mg Adderall- 20mg. I'd highly recommend this combo. I mean, it's worth a shot. The adderall helps me concentrate. I used to have bouts of rage and was often violent. That completely went away, and I'd say I'm actually quite "laid back" and optimistic now. I've tried dozens of med combos, and this one has been the best BY FAR for me.
Avatar n tn Dear Roberta, It is likely that your daughter can receive some help which will result in improvement of some of her more troubling symptoms, particularly her reactive rage and aggression. A number of childhood disorders can result in the sorts of behaviors you are witnessing, but a likely possibility is a mood disorder. Adderall, the medication you mentioned, is a stimulant compound which is used to treat Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.
Avatar f tn Hello, I have a 12 year old, soon to be 13, whom has my husband and i at the end of our ropes. He was diagnosed with adhd at 8. Has been on and off of meds. He is now on Adderall XR 20mg. He has had good progress with this med until now. His grades are horrible. He has a do not care attitude and a major problem with authority. He can be fine one second and the next in a rage, throwing things, hitting walls and has been know to push at us.
Avatar f tn It's been 2 weeks and not only was there no improvement, but her behavior is sooo much worse! So her doctor added Adderall two days ago. No difference in her behavior yet. We are just learning about ADHD. Have done hours of research. I know dr. might need to adjust dosage before we see improvement, but I can't help but wonder, since she has gone downhill so fast, could it be something else, not ADHD? We are looking into seeing a psychologist who treats ADHD patients.
Avatar f tn 00pm. After two weeks on this med and dose I found myself trying to take 2 at once to see if it would work since I felt absolutely nothing taking 1 10mg tablet twice during the day. I swear I do not abuse medication but whether my body can't absorb medication or I'm just defective I know that most people on the shear amount of different meds I take daily and then the dosages, it should be obvious that I'm highly medicated. But I'm not at all.
Avatar f tn if anyone experiences delusional thoughts or even paranoia along with being diagnosed with adhd let me know if meds help that my doctors have tried a lot of meds. i am scared to ask them about adderall because i really do not want them to just try anything..because t hey have tried so much already and i feel like i am getting worse.
Avatar f tn There's also nuvigil, similar to provigil, but that medication wasn't approved for me because i don't think it's been tested much on minors. I'm now taking 200mg provigil along with 10mg Adderall extended release. Here's the thing about Adderall: it's bad. It keeps me awake most of the time for sure, but negatively affects my mental health. I would advise against it. However, if you end up taking Adderall, demand the extended release. It lasts for 12 hours (more or less).
Avatar f tn Both of us have had bouts of depression in the past and my husband is currently diagnosed as ADHD and is taking Adderall and Zoloft. When he first started taking Adderall, it was like a dream come true! He as always been an procrastinator and has/had classic ADHD symptoms. The Adderall was amazing! Before I start with what is going on, let me first say that my husband is not a monster. It's quite the opposite...he is a wonderful husband and father and he loves us immensely.
Avatar n tn I just started taking adderall about three months ago. But I feel as if I go through moments of rage, I also experience severe headaches, my skin feels sensitive to the touch. I have had odd vaginal discharge, and severe pain in the lower abdomen, radiating towards my chest. This really worries me, and I don't really know who to go to about this... Another thing is I have an odd rash on my chest that doesn't seem to heal.
Avatar f tn I continued taking it as prescribed but by the end of the first week I was SUPER cranky and bitching at everyone. I got so full of rage one night that I flushed them all down the toilet and call my doc the next day to let him know that I wouldn't be taking those anymore ;) I'm quite the control freak.... As expected, I continued suffering from my ADHD symptoms being a full-time student and single parent to a 1 year-old with NO child care. A month later (last week) my doc put me on Adderall.
Avatar f tn I too have ADHD, and am on 20mg of Adderall XR daily, and 10mg of Adderall IR at my discretion. I must say that I can relate to the impulses of violence, although I have never struck a person or object. I felt like ripping down the shower curtain because the bottom of the curtain kept sticking to my leg. I wanted to punch my computer because it kept freezing, slamming my fist into the monitor because when I clicked "close" it wouldn't exit.
Avatar n tn I have an 8 year old son and he has been through almost every type of counseling and on Ritalin, adderall, straterra, Abilify. The counslers at all the places we have been, say they are stumped or say its ADHD, or ODD, and suggest all types of theraputic things to do for him and all kinds of methods to control the tantrums.
Avatar m tn Similarly marijuana can potentiate or increase the side effects of Adderall which also include unusual behavior, rage, infliction of injury etc. It is best to avoid marijuana while on these drugs. Hope this helps. Take care!
1239132 tn?1268395312 My son, does not want to understand as he spent his whole childhood dealing with my illness and his ADD. I had a bad moment on the phone, a moment of rage, his friends heard, I have apologized but he will not bend, he is only 20. I am so depressed, What have you done to teach, help and support your children besides counseling, suggesting books and trying to have honest talks. We lost his dad last year. I am in a very worthless moment.
505907 tn?1258372940 I get so euphoric I tend to think i'm a brilliant genius who is the prettiest, smartest, funniest person on the planet. Then sometimes I fly into a rage. When I mean rage, I mean wanting to hurt rage. Then I start hallucinating and i'm delusional and extememly paranoid. It no longer is fun. I irritably, irrational and out of my mind. I will not listen to anyone when they tell me i'm sick. I think they are out to get me. I spend money like there's no tomorrow.
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 n tn My son was dxed w/ ADHD. He's been on meds since age 5. He's 9 now. Ritalin, Concerta, Dexedrine, & now Adderall XR and Inderall. Aggressive behavior since age 2 resulting in being thrown out of 3 daycares. Violent in school when he doesn't get his way, (e.g.
Avatar m tn I think Prozac is the most prescribed antidepressant on tx. That’s what my doc gave me. I also have a prescription for adderall, an amphetamine. It is great on tx. It gets me out of bed and working and is the only thing that gives me any energy. It is almost impossible to get a prescription for. They only give it out for ADHD and Epilepsy.

Any way i found for myself its helps a lot with low energy and moode days adderall 5mg Doctors sain nothin about this ...... not sure why but its help and i did try all meds for FM ...
Avatar f tn Only to get lies an rage back. He buttered me over for years. Finally this week he admitted it. He's addicted to opiates. And now says this is why he's been so moody and angry. For the last couple of years he's been a horrible husband. The lies to cover lies. He now says that the rage fits(as I call them) were all addiction related. He'd be out and starting to feel bad. He says his mind is clouded. He says he's always on the lookout for them.
