newbie73 Posted December 5, 2005 Share Posted December 5, 2005 I'll spare all diagnosis details unless any of you would like to hear them. Last Fri. was my first day on Aderall XR. Started at 20mg, single dose in morning. I noticed a difference in the first day, and the difference continued through the weekend, though it diminished a bit with each day that went by. Today I was supposed to start at 40mg in the morning, though I am a bit worried and wanted to ask you all for some help in gauging expectations. Is this normal for the effect to reduce over such a short time? Is this my body getting used to the medicine? Let's say there is some desired amount of effect. In a month or so, let's say that we find the correct dosage to deliver this amount of effect. Will this dosage need to be increased over time to maintain this amount of effect? I'm really wondering if my body adjusts to the new chemicals and attempts to revert to the mental clutter that it is used to. In general though, the effect was very good. My mind was able to avoid clutter when I wanted to; the clarity of thought really came across in conversations with friends, especially conversations about work. I noticed not only more productivity, but I was able to navigate social situations much better. It felt as if I was in sync with the people around me; I knew when to chime in with conversation, when to joke etc. Conversation just flowed without the abrupt interruptions I am used to. I like what I experienced and would like it to continue, but I am also leery of being in a situation where I am continuously increasing the dosage of this drug. Thoughts?
