What's better than Adderall?
Posted 20 October 2007 - 11:57 PM
Since I went off of the drug, I have been lost. My head found it's way up my ass and has been residing there ever since. Is there another stim out there that any of you have found to be milder in side effects than Adderall???
and a rock feels no pain. . . and an island, never cries.

Another suggestion is Vyvanse. It's a newer ADD amphetamine stimulant drug, seemingly marketed towards school-age children due to smoother and longer-lasting effects compared to other stimulants, and once-a-day dosing. Also, the word on the street is that it is much milder in the speedy side effect department than other stimulants on the market. My pdoc has a few patients on it that love it, so I may even give it a shot some day soon (I currently take Adderall IR, with a lack of smoothness as the primary complaint).
