Common Questions and Answers about Adderall withdrawal


Avatar n tn If you take Adderall 10mg six times a day and stop it abruptly, how long will the withdrawal symptoms last and what can you do to help them?
Avatar m tn I stopped taking my perscription to adderall xr 30mg two weeks ago since my semester at college was over. I was taking this dosage for almost three months. Since I have stopped, I have noticed fatigue in the morning along with a foggy thought process through out the day. Is this normal? And how long does this withdrawl last for?
Avatar n tn I was curious if some doctors could answer the following questions What are the positive side effects of adderall, negitive effects? What are the problems with addiction to adderall? How many children are being perscribed to this drug? Is there a problem of illegal selling on college campuses, details? any answers to these questions would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you a doctor, or any kind of medical proffessional can you leave your name and where you practice. Thanks so much.
Avatar f tn My dr added adderal to my prozac and xanx he says i have refractory depression or something like that,i felt better yesterday after taking the adderall...but i hear im at higher risk for serotoyin syndrome....any others on these meds..
Avatar f tn You know, I do not believe I have ever heard of anyone having "withdrawal" with Adderall, so maybe that would be better if it meant you could quit your other stuff? I could be totally wrong, I just do not recall ever hearing of people becoming physically dependent, I know they can have a hard time stopping just because they start to really like the energy.
Avatar n tn Does anyone know if you can get addicted to adderall, if so what are the symptoms? the same as opioids?
Avatar n tn You will build up a dependence, though taking drug holidays might work, during those holidays you will feel like **** though because you are essentially in forced withdrawal. Yes, withdrawal. EVERYONE becomes dependent on it or not. I don't care how severe your ADD is. It will also change your personality while you are on boosts up dopamine quite a bit along with you feel artificially ok and may not be as sensitve and caring as you normally would be..
Avatar m tn not personal experience with adderall....but it is normal to feel fatigue with adderall is not life threatening and for the most part it is a mental wd vs narcotics being both/mental and physical...the fatigue is common among narc wds as both drugs supply extra endorphins to the brain//many feel fatigue after narcotic cessation to be a physical symptom like the runs...but it is a result of taking endorphins away and waiting on the brain to "catch up" on endorphin production....

Avatar n tn I'm 25 and prescribed Adderall XR 25 1 per day, for 3 years, and a 10 mg on occasion extra, ok'd be Dr. I recently got married and we want to start a family , so I've decided to quit the Adderall and with the guidance of the Dr I will be tapering off. Today is my first day tapering and I no longer am taking the XR's, today I'm going to start using the regular 10's: 1 per day for 5 days, then 1/2 per day for 5 days.

Avatar n tn I am 24 years old, and have been on adderall for 11 years, since the time I was diagnosed with ADD. As an adult how the drug affects me has changed greatly, and I have now formed both a mental and physical addiction to it. I have formed my life around taking this drug by pursuing a high pressure education, a college degree in a field not right for me at all, and an intensely demanding career. I am a naturally creative, laid back, and happy person, but the adderall truly changed all of that.
Avatar f tn It could also cause premature birth, low birth weight, or withdrawal symptoms in a newborn if the mother takes Adderall during pregnancy. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment. Adderall can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. Do not use Adderall without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.
Avatar f tn quit cold turkey, flushing all the adderall i had down the toilet. This is my 4th day clean of adderall. How long do the withdrawal symptoms last?
Avatar n tn try L-tyrosine and 5 htp, that's what I used to help combat withdrawal. I feel fine and it's been 6 months since i quit adderall.
Avatar m tn I have been addicted to adderall for over ten years. I have unsuccessfully tried to kick the habit several times. However, each time i go cold turkey i end up dysfunctional for weeks until i relent and go back to it. the withdrawal symptoms are absolutely miserable. I feel as though i am half conscious and all i can do is sleep. i have tried tapering myself off of it but job demands always start interfering and i relapse.
Avatar n tn I have been on stimulant medications since I was in the 2nd grade for my diagnosis of ADD. I am now a college freshman. A good 5 years ago, I began taking adderall, deciding it would be most effective in treating my tendency towards distraction (According to the doctor, there is no hyperactivity). My dosage is currently 90 mg, and has been such for approximately 1 1/2 years. I am instructed to take 60 mg in the morning, and another 30 in the evening.
Avatar n tn I began taking adderall for studying my freshman year at college. Then I got a pretty nice prescription for them in October 2008 but did not take nearly as much as I was prescribed. But now I have built up quite a dependency on them. Before I would take 20mg XR a day early in the morning to study alll day then 30 now 40mg XR which is also beginning to lose its effects. I am currently an undergraduate and will be taking the MCAT on September 4th.
Avatar f tn Withdrawal from adderall would be much like that of cocaine..not alot of physical symptoms like narcotis..but mental wds..depression and anxiety and such...if you have a doctor to talk with about it perhaps he can prescribe something to help you cope with quitting...a friend quit amphetamines and she had a sleep med, and anti-dep, and an anti-anxiety med prescribed for detox which they told her was not life threatening to cold turkey so she did...
