  1. I hate being on adderall. I can't seem to work when i'm not on it. I'm on 15 mg now. It's working, but I feel speedy & have a hard time sleeping. I'm wondering If i go down to 5 mg, if I can still get some work done. Does anyone just take 5mg of adderall?
  2. Hey, So about 5pm every day of late, my mood just turns black. I can't buy a neutral (forget positive) cognition or emotion, I start to feel and think very negatively no matter what I do. Of course, I'm feeling and thinking badly beforehand, but it just sinks to another level, or depth if you will. So I'm wondering if it's a med (or meds) that I'm taking that's losing effect around 5pm. I take the following meds - yes, it's a crazy-looking brew I know, but it allows me to function somewhat - at 6am (in milligrams): 200 Provigil, 2.5 Abilify, 40 Fetzima, 30
  3. Greetings, My pdoc is switching me from Adderall XR 30 mgs. to Nuvigil. He's doing so because the Adderall doesn't seem to be working for me anymore. I also have extreme fatigue and lack of motivation to even get off the sofa. I've fallen behind on everything (i.e. house is a disaster, laundry is piled up like never before, etc.) so I'm in high hopes this switch will be a positive one! If anyone has made this switch, or has any positive experiences regarding Nuvigil to share, I'd greatly appreciate hearing your stories. Thanks, in advance! ~Craziness
  4. Pdoc FINALLY upped Ritalin (LA) to 30mg in morning, and I take 10mg (IR) in afternoon. Been on consistently about 1.5 years (note, it’s a real pain to get it here, they treat it like street meth & it’s the most benign stimulant!!) I have bad energy crashes within 5 hours, then crave chocolate (which I usually dislike), I have more coffee. The IR 10mg in afternoon seems to do nothing. Trying the 20mg IR in afternoon, which might be better, but wears off in 2 hours, I don’t want to mess up my sleep or jack up my heart rate. Note, I’m not taking for ADD (but for depression add-on) m
  5. I am taking stimulants for numerous reasons--primarily for ADHD and idiopathic hypersomnia, but also because I'm obese and trying to lose weight (with diet and exercise of course) and because amphetamines heretofore have been the only thing that really make me a functioning human being. I was curious though. From y'all's experience, which stimulant inhibited appetite and/or caused more weight loss, that is, between Ritalin (and all their products), Focalin, Adderall, Dexedrine, or some other stimulant. I have actually even taken Desoxyn, twice, and to be honest, it's nowhere near as poten
  6. Just to preface, I don't take Ritalin for ADHD...it's more for Depression, motivation, procrastination, mental stamina purposes. Has anyone found that you get TOO focused on it? Maybe because I don't actually have ADHD, but I start working on 1 thing and become OBSESSIVELY focused on it (like it brings out the uber perfectionist in me). I forget to eat, I don't take breaks from my desk, and then my brain just shuts off from exhaustion. At the end, I've accomplished only 1-2 tasks. I have great difficulty switching tasks or getting all "priority" things done, because I get so stuck on
  7. Hello all, I'm looking for some med experience/anecdotes! I am bipolar and also have anxiety, ADHD, and PTSD. Currently I'm taking Lamictal (400mg/day), Geodon (80mg/day), and Adderall (25mg/day). I'm looking to change it up because I am seriously struggling with the side effects. Since starting Geodon I am tired all the time (it doesn't help that I'm in the midst of a depressive episode) and I've gained 20+ pounds in two months. I think it's helping with the manic side (or maybe that's just because of the depressive episode I'm in?) but I can't deal with these side effects. The Adderall
  8. Navitus just sent me a letter saying "Happy New Year! Your brand-name Adderall will now cost you $400/month because we're assholes!" (I now have to pay the difference between brand-name and generic if I want brand-name.) The problem is that I've tried generics and either they give me diarrhea and are barely absorbed (lactose-intolerant) and/or they release inconsistently and just generally work like shit (bad come-down, etc.). Are there generics that people are generally happy with? My former doctor told me at some point that the molds had been licensed to someone so that the generic
  9. Hello everyone, I am female age 49, have been on Adderall for ADD 3+ years. Starting at 5mg tabs twice daily and now at 10mg tabs twice daily. Adderall has changed my world, the focus is incredible and it really helped with work as a magazine publisher. I can no longer do my job because of severe arthritic symptoms. *I had a conversation with a college professor in the pediatric medical field, he stated that new evidence shows that Adderall can cause debilitating joint/muscle pain and damage, weakness, and maybe permanent damage in some patients. Apparently, new study information was
  10. Does anyone else find that the days you take your stimulant, you sleep like baby at night and wake up refreshed? I do! I'm so happy that I am finally getting restful and conistent sleep with the help of Adderall. I take 10mg IR once in the morning and sometimes I take a second dose around lunch or dinner. I was reading good article abut it. Let me get the link. It's from Tuck.com. If it's accurate information, it seems very informative. https://www.tuck.com/stimulants-and-sleep/
  11. Hello, all. I'm new to this site. I've been working with a pdoc for the past 3 to 4 years and, more recently, a therapist, due to what I personally classify as treatment resistant MDD. I'm in my mid-forties. Throughout this time, my pdoc has tried multiple "cocktail" combinations of medications. Some combinations work for a while, but it's difficult to become excited when I'm in a good period because I know the bottom can, and likely will, drop out from under my feet again. I'm curious whether anyone has had any success with a similar pharmaceutical lineup like mine. I'm also hoping someone mi

  13. Hello, new here. I know we're supposed to go to our doctors but I was hoping to hear other people's personal experiences and if they know more about this than me. I'll cut to the chase - I'm prescribed adderall and have been on it for a long time. I normally take it and go about my day, but one side effect that I can't find any information on is irking me: after I take it, I feel as if people around me are upset with me, and I often feel a sense of guilt for no particular reason. For example, I can be watching tv and feel the urge to make sure everyone else in the room is not in a bad moo

  15. Hi. Been taking Adderall XR for ADHD for two years. It contributed to a hypomanic episode, but my pdoc was kind enough to work with me in recognition of how much I was suffering due to my concentration and low energy, and, after changing my diagnosis from MDD to bipolar 2, prescribed Latuda. Except for a depressive blip when he raised the Latuda dose, I have been mostly stable on Latuda, Brintellix and Adderall for two years, and the Adderall has helped me a lot, but a recently lowered dose of Latuda has me cycling. We raised the Latuda dose again, but while I'm waiting for it to kick in I've
  16. Hi all, i am prescribed 30mg Adderall XR TID and 10mg IR PRN. I always take one of my 30mg XR in the morning, an hour before I need to wake up. Then I go back to sleep and somewhere within 45 min to 1.5 hours, the adderall gets me up. (I have a hard time getting up in the AM). Anyone else do this or am I weird? Lol
  17. Hi everyone, I have had a mood disorder dx since I was 14. Currently 24 and dx changed to BP 2. Haven't taken meds seriously until I was 22 or so. Was doing relatively well on Latuda 40 and lamictal 200 until I decided I didn't need medication about a year ago. For the past 8 months I have been back on lamictal and latuda ranging from 100-300 and 80-20 respectively. I feel it has made no difference in my agitated and depressed mood so my pdoc added 900 lithium 3 weeks ago. Haven't noticed a difference except slightly less agitation. So I just started 1350 on the lithium. In conclusion, latuda
  18. Hi guys, I saw a new pdoc recently, and I related to him how I frequently sleep for 20-50 hours at a time because of depression, but he thinks there may be more than just "bipolar depression" causing my body to sleep continuously without interruption for such absurd amounts of time. He recommended the potentiality of stimulants - Adderall, Provigil, Nuvigil. I have absolutely no experience with stimulants! All my meds have always been downers. I have friends who take Adderall and they believe it helps with their depression and bad thoughts. So I got some (haven't seen my regul
  19. Hi guys, I saw a new pdoc today, and related to him how I frequently sleep for 20-50 hours at a time, and he recommended Adderall as a possibility to help stimulate me. I spoke with a friend and she says that Adderall helped with her depression greatly because it increased her productivity, which in turn helped her to feel good. She also said the increased focus allowed her to block out her negative thinking ... staying busy I guess. Your thoughts? troop
  20. Has anyone ever had any experience with this mixture? I can find info about any two of those mixed together but not all three.... Any suggestions on something that might work to combine the depression and anxiety into one that mixes with Adderall well?
  21. So yeah, yesterday I visited a Psychiatrist for the first time in my fucking life, also got diagnosed with "Mild Bi-polar" as he put it, also I have always had a HUGE problem sleeping, usually get 2-4 hours a night(but I don't feel tired next day, only in the mornings) So he prescribed 100mg Seroquel mainly for sleeping and also to help with my "bi-polar". FUCK seroquel by the way, I felt like I woke up 3-4 times during the night, I also remember having a weird paralysis moment, like I was trying to scream while in my bed but I couldn't, couldn't move all that shit, some inception type dr
  22. I just started Adderall this week and I have a couple of questions. I have a prescription for 20mg XR and 10mg regular. I'm supposed to take XR in the morning and take half of a 10mg tab (so 5 mg) if I need it when that wears off. My biggest question is - how do I space these out? As I understand XR can last from 7 - 12 hours, which is a huge variation in timing. I feel it wearing off after like 6, but it seems to stay in my system for 10 or so. Around 6 hours I get hungry, grind my teeth, feel edgy, and find it harder and harder to focus. The first 6 hours is life - changing in
