Avatar n tn Dear Tommy22, I just finished reading your posting as you requested. It's actually entitled; "I need some help with my Adderall meds." I would like to begin by sharing with you some personal history with ADHD and Adderall, as I believe that this will be useful in our discussion. I was not diagnosed with ADHD until the age of 39 and until that time I remained totally untreated. When I began taking Adderall in September of 2007 I was prescribed 10 m.g. XR (1/day).
Avatar n tn i am currently taking paxil 10mg 1po qd and want to know if its safe to take this with adderrall and or valium for my anxiery..
Avatar n tn ) helps some people with the w/d's, so you may ask about that. Also, valium will help you get some sleep. I'm in the same situation as you with the pain...I know where you're coming from...oxy is a great drug that can help you live a normal life with debilitating pain; however, you can't let the pills cause more pain in other ways...it's a very fine line and many of us cross over. Keep coming back.
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.
Avatar n tn I had to take Valium to fall asleep. I don't think I will be taking Paxil again, but it was a very nice experience Paxil with Adderall. Maybe if I take it together, I wouldn't be so sick. Try doing that and at night tale valium or Xanax to fall asleep.

Avatar n tn I understand dextroamphetamine is prescribed to patients with add, what side effects and long time problems arise from taking adderall with large amount of alcohol, and not in fact having add? Some negative side effects that I have noticed is the inability to sleep, I usually stay up for long periods of time and I am unable to rest. The ability to sleep is go great often I only get a few hours of sleep in a 24 or 48 hour period of time.
Avatar m tn I can never understand those who abuse adderall for the same affect never took place with me- it only produced more workaholism- but leaving it behind thus far has felt better for me, even if I now put my foot in my mouth more often. I'm just honest, explain my disAbility, and apologize when/if needed. I can't be on speed forever, it made me drained, dehydrated, hungry, exhausted, and old-looking.
Avatar n tn A friend gave me two 10 mg Valium earlier today and it worked very well. I don't believe I will have a serious Adderall problem, especially at this point, considering my sources are out. For the future, I will watch myself and restrict the use either to studying or just pure abstinence. PS: I also take Tramadol, have been on that for about two years. Prescribed 8 a day by my doctor but take about 6.
Avatar m tn I have since quit them and have been trying to taper, I actually got myself down to 3 of the DHC pills a day and then I got a major head/chest cold and couldnt deal with the taper and cold at the same time. Its funny, the whole time I was taking the large amounts I never got sick, but once I came close to getting off its like it all hit me at once.
Avatar f tn HI first off I agree with IBKleen it is not safe to mix alcohol and benzos like xannx or addiril I would also question a doctor that had me on addiril xannx and prozac all at the same time...it like take the xanax to slow down and chill out...take the addiril to get lifted back up from the xanax and let just add a antidepressant in there to try and stabilize you mood right now your not high...your sideways you dont know if your coming or going on this sort of combo...
Avatar n tn i smoke weed every day and take celexa, valium, tricor, omeprozole, plavix and amlodapin 4 various ailments . does anyone out there know about prochlorperazine? is it safe to take to get high?
Avatar f tn Then gradually reduced for lorazepam replacing it with diazepam (Valium). The Valium has a much longer half life so you don't go through interdose withdrawal... Eventually you chip down the Valium and it's not that hard... 2mg Xanax is a lot, considering the starting dose is usually .25mg. Anyways Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Hell. Don't start it and of you do, dont go longer than a week, if that.
Avatar f tn So far in my weird and almost constantly disappointing life, I've been diagnosed with ADD, Depression, Generalized Anxiety, BPD, and PTSD. And I've been getting all kinds of different treatments for them for years... Since 6th grade, I believe. (about 6 years ago.) I've been on Prozac, Ritalin, Adderall, Birth Control, hell- I just got prescribed Valium! And, naturally, nothing helps.
Avatar f tn I suffered from hydrocodone addiction for around three years when I was sent to jail and suffered through the horrible withdrawal. I have been back home for 8 months and again have started taking the pills for about a month off and on and the past week every day. Already I am having the withdraw symptoms. I didn't know it could happen this fast. When I was clean I told myself I would never take another loracet (hydrocodone) again. Now look at me.
Avatar f tn Hello I've been taking Vicodin percocet adderall valium xanax for Awhile now and I need to STOP it maybe getting of control the Vacodin was 750 mg.
Avatar m tn I'm 44 and have been on ms contin for 6 years now. I was taking 300mg 3x daily two years ago. To help with the drowsiness my doc gave me dexedrine 45mg 1 x daily. The dexedrine got out of control and I stopped using it last year and now I'm kicking the morphine and need some help. My latest dose is 180mg 3 x daily and I've weaned myself down to splitting the 60mg tabs into halves and taking one half 3x daily.
Avatar f tn I don't think that is the best combination and shouldn't be taken at the same time, for example Valium and Adderall. I do take adderall and a benzodiazepine (Valium) both, just not at the same time. For the longest time I was on a medication for bipolar disorder, but wasn't diagnosed with ADD until after I graduated. Had I'd known I had ADD I probably would have been more enthusiastic and not hated school so much. I think he should go see another doctor to get another opinion.
Avatar n tn this will cause some extra depression. if you are taking it. are you taking the receipe, it works wonders with depression and energy. imodium for the runs , the runs will deplete us of all our nutreints and this will cause much more pain then we have to go through. drink lots of liquids , gatoraid is good for the lost electrolites due to the runs. by day 5 you shoud beging to come out of the woods , that is when the depression starts to really hit us.
6484018 tn?1381723861 How should I use these scripts to my benefit or how should I not use these scripts to my benefit?

132578 tn?1189759437 I have never liked the effects of stimulants, I can't stand that jittery feeling. BUT having said that I have been taking Adderall for the past 10 months to help with ADHD, and more importantly for me-weight loss. My hep dr. admitted antidpressants make u gain weight and I have seen it discussed on a talk show.
Avatar f tn I am currently taking Valium for my anxiety and depression and adderall for my ADD. Its been about 2 years now since i stopped taking lexapro and i have been much better since. I would talk to your doctor about other forms of treatment and explain what your actual side effects are.
Avatar n tn I'm a 39 year old woman diagnosed with ADHD, Depression, Anxiety for which I take Adderall, Celexa and Valium. I am addicted heavily to my Adderall, I take triple the amount a day. I used to take Xanax, but switched to Valium because I was eating the Xanax like candy. The valium doesn't seem to affect me the same way, I take my regular dose, sometimes not at all. I drink alcohol alot and when I run out of Adderall I snort cocaine. Aren't I just a friggin mess?
Avatar f tn I'm not sure why a doctor would prescribe Valium to someone with narcolepsy - stimulants like Adderall can often leave someone feeling strung out, burnt out, and even more tired in the long run... versus something like Provigil (aka modafinil) which is non-narcotic and promotes awareness and wakefulness.
1518427 tn?1294368621 I wanted to wait until after Thanksgiving to start this med. I also take 30mg/day of Adderall (1/2 tablet twice daily) and 10mg of Valium twice daily. I've tried other anti-depressants but always stopped taking them because of the side effects. They just made me feel weird and anxious. This time, however, I am determined to continue the Celexa until I see benefits. My main question is what's the best time of day to take Celexa? I sleep very well now due to the Adderall.
Avatar n tn but valium doesn't seem to be working for me.... after i stopped taking xanax... i was taking a pretty high dosage of valium... averaging... 10mg-30mg / night..... i realli need to sleep... so i started with 10mg valium then another 10mg, another... i think 35mg in total.... still can't sleep... i know this sounds very stupid of me.... and yes.. i think i have a serious addiction problem....and now i am still up.... btw, i am amazed at how fast ppl respond at this forum..
Avatar m tn My blood pressure was 121/76 this morning before taking anything, and that's an average of taking it 4 times over a 30 min time period. After taking just the 300mg Wellbutrin, 5mg Valium, and aspirin, and 70mg Vyvanse, my pressure gradually started climbing; when it got to 149/89, I took 50mg Atenenol; over a relatively short period of time, it was back down to 129/79, but that's still too high, IMO.
