carlm78 Posted June 9, 2011 Share Posted June 9, 2011 i love it, but, i don't get adderall. i'm on the IR version. the first 4 days that i took it, i couldn't sleep. of course i was also crashing from caffeine withdrawal (i went from 36mg concerta per day and 20oz sugar free red bull to 40mg adderall and no red bull). anyway after those 4 days i finally got my klonopin prescription renewed (on account of the memorial day holiday the doctor's office was closed), but, a few days later i noticed i didn't need it anymore. taking 15, 15 then 10, at 8am, 12pm and 4pm, i fall asleep naturally around 11pm/11:30 and will sleep until 6am and am pleasantly sleepy in the morning. also i have been able to keep to the 1900 calorie diet i've been trying to follow for months, have been exercising more often, and am a lot more productive / less scattered at work. however i sleep so well that now when i take my 15 in the morning i'm noticing less of a kickstart / wakeup effect and i'm finding myself resorting to an 8oz red bull to get myself going again. also i feel like my emotions are a little bit on mute and i'm not that excited about anything anymore. i am seeing my pdoc tomorrow morning, perhaps i need to just drop the lamictal/topamax i'm on (or just the lamictal, i don't know). am i getting used to adderall now, maybe i need to keep upping the dosage? my sister is a pdoc and she told me a person of my size (i'm 6'5") could be prescribed 60mg. i am surprised that i'm already used to 40mg a day because at first i was almost manic. or maybe this is just how i'm supposed to be - getting enough sleep, productive at work, not too emotional, drinking caffeine but not an excessive amount, eating right, exercising, etc. i don't know. advice?
