PLEASE someone help me understand this new medication my doc just put me on. Never taken Adderall before and wanting to talk to those of you who have experienced it's effects. i have 20mg capsules and i get headaches and my heart can race just a little but not bothersome yet. Yes, I have doc and pharm answers but i want real answers from people who use this in their lives. THANK YOU GUYS! ## Hello: I think that it is GREAT to question any new Psych drug that is prescribed. I have had some very bad experiences. I have taken Adderall since 2005 and it has been fantastic. I too have racing heart beats, shaking and sometimes very euphoric. I would suggest that you don;t take adderall and drink coffee or any other caffeine type product as I think this makes the nervous feeling worse. You...

4 year old taking adderall xr

My granddaughter has been given adderall xr for add - she DOES NOT have ADD at all-her mother just doesn't know how to parent. Please help - where can I go for help to report this? How does a DR prescribe this for a four year old? What kind of testing is required? ## This Med should not be given to a 4 year old. I take Adderall XR 10MG and I am 43. Adderall is amphetamine, (Speed). Find a new Dr. and throw the script away... ## The dr that prescribed the Adderall ER and the pharmacist that filled the rx has more education and training than anyone here. Not agreeing with your daughters parenting skills is something you need to discuss with your daughter. Chances are due to your attitude there are things that your daughter hasn't told you regarding your granddaughter. ## My grandd...

Adderall XR causing extremely dry eyes
1 Reply RSS
Ok I have searched this topic for months now and no one else seems to have a solution for my problem. I am currently taking 30mg Adderall XR which is prescribed by the doctor. I take the generic bc I've always been told there is no difference. I take my medication on the days I work and I take it very early so I am not up all night. This medication really seems to help me HOWEVER my eyes seem to become very dry!! Sticky almost and I'm in constant discomfort before my day is halfway over. I have tried only taking half my pill by separating it and I still have the same affect. I am miserable and the people in my life can tell. I'm constantly rolling my eyes or squinting to relieve the "dry eye" feeling but it just makes me look weird and doesn't really help. Here a...

20mg Adderall XR - New Patient!
2 Replies RSS
I was prescribed Ritalin as a kid, then graduated to Adderall until I was 18. After that, my parents moved out-of-state, and I was no longer insured, so I decided to try and show everyone I didn't need medication to be 'normal'. I could never tell that the medication did anything for me, but my parents always seemed to notice a positive difference. I'm now almost 31, married, and doing pretty well, but I still struggle with focus (studying) and finishing tasks / forgetfulness, so I saw my doctor who prescribed me 20mg of Adderall XR a day. I took my first dose this morning, and had a homemade fruit smoothie with it... but within the first 30min or so I started to feel really antsy, super chatty, felt like I was about to bounce out of my skin, and experienced dry mouth, a...

Adderall IR/XR Comedown *Sleep Issues*Eating*
Post a Reply
I absolutely love the comedown almost as much as the initial effects. No matter how much in overall quantity I take, whether through the day/night or a at once. I just lay, sit, or do things when the comedown hits, and end up staring at anything and everything unintentionally. And if I don't try to focus, an excessive euphoria sinks in and shifts my view, almost as if on a trip of some sort, but I can shut it off and turn it on in a snap. People that complain about the Adderall comedown are a little on the closed-minded side of you ask me. The more you focus on hating/not wanting to come down, the more negative your body takes the reaction, not saying there aren't cases where it genuinely sucks for some people. But even on just 20mg, which doesn't make me very euphoric, the ...

I have been taking adderall 30mg for two years now and it really helps me. but my last script I got filled was a blue capsule and is a generic brand..Dextroamp. this is awful. I refuse to take these pills. but due to my ins I can not get them changed..I know it depends on what mfg your pharmacist goes with. but my point is how can they even sell these things to drug stores anyways.. my doctor also told me they get lots of complaints on these pills and that they are gonna check further into the mfg of these things.. ## Hello, Debora! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problems that you've had. What are the markings on it? That would enable me to check more information on it for you. The color isn't enough to go on. The FDA lists this medication as carrying the risk of bein...

Adderall danger
3 Replies RSS
My husband is 48 years old. He has adhd problem since he was a kid. Last 7 years his phyciatrist prescribed him Adderal 30mg which helped him a lot to focus and etc, and eventually it helped him a lot in his career. He would have never succeed in his profession without those pills. Last year he was going through mid-life crisis, his father died-he started abusing those pills. Then he became tolerant to them and switched to methamphetamine for one month. After spending 1 month in rehab and being unemployed for 4 months and clean for now-he is trying to find another job, and now he says he can't be productive without adderall-he can't focus on anything, even writing his CV. I don't know what to do. I see he really has ADHD, and he can't be productive without those pills, b...

Sensitive gums from Adderall XR?
Post a Reply
Hello I just started using Adderall XR (5 mg per dayfor 7 days and 5 mg more a week until reaching 20 mg per day) and I have noticed that my gums have begun to be sensitive and even hurt. I have read that some people experience this but there is very little that I could find about it. Supposedly it may be due to dry mouth, though I have used other meds that caused dry mouth and never have I had sensitive gums. I cannot floss my teeth as it hurts too much. And I am only on 10 mg a day at this point. I have rinsed my mouth, as was suggested online, with water and peroxide and I have also now purchased Biotene mouthwash for dry mouth. Has anyone here experienced this as well and if so is it something that will pass with time or is it something that I should worry about? Any and all input w...

I'm 38 years old I wake up 6 30 every morning and chew 4-Adderall 30xr beads. Work all day by noon take 2 more along with 2 oxycontine 80's Then that's it for adderall. I come home from busting ass all day smoke a bowl and take another 2 prescribed oxy I'm worried I might have a heart attack or stroke. But I sure feal good all the time 100% prescribed ## Hello, Kyle! How are you? Yes, with that much Adderall XR, you could be in danger, it can be risky, since it increases heart rate and blood pressure. What type of doctor has prescribed that many to be taken like that? It doesn't make any sense. Both of these medications also carry the risk of being habit forming.

Adderall XR 5mg hair loss in children
1 Reply RSS
My granddaughter been on this medicine for 4 months. She have loss almost all her hair, it is less than 1in. How can I help her I am not going to give her this medicine anymore. ## Hello, Madeline! How is that little lady doing? Yes, that can be a rare side effect of Adderall, because it can affect the blood flow to the scalp. She will most likely need to switch to a different medication. Has her pediatrician been consulted about this? Once a switch is made, her hair should grow back.

where can i get it? Who has it?

Been on 30mg XR many years. Supply dried up. CVS & Wllgreens Ran out. Where can I get my script filed? ## Unfortunately, I don't have an answer you. We have had many posts about this recently from many people who are having problems getting their prescriptions filled. There was a shortage reported to the FDA a few months ago and it seems that not everything has been resolved yet, with the supply chain. The only thing I can suggest is talking to your doctor about using an alternative medication in the meantime. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Damn if all of you where in Washington State I could tell you 3 pharmacies off the top of my head that has Adderall ir in stock. Don't get me wrong 2 months ago I found out about the shortage and did my homework early and stak...

Adderall Dosage/Frequency
2 Replies RSS
I have been taking Adderall XR for about 7 years for narcolepsy. I have always taken 10 mg each morning; and recently my doctor increased my perscription to 5-15 mg per day, so that I was given 5 mg. capsules and had the option of taking an extra 5 mg each day. I find everyday I am tried by lunch and have a hard time staying awake, so I take that extra 5 mg. capsule around 1:00 in the afternoon. But sometimes by taking that extra 5 mg I get a really bad headache, and to be honest I still am tired. Would it be better to take the full 15 mg in the morning? I just have never taken that much at once and was afraid to try it. Any advice would be appreciated. ## It is available in a 15mg dose to be taken at once, as a matter of fact it goes up to 30mgs, so it likely won't hurt to try, sin...

Question about stopping adderall XR
2 Replies RSS
My son was disgnosed in the 3rd grade with ADHD and has been on Addrerall ever since and he is now in the 5th grade.He started a new school that has a doctor there to monitor him and on the 17th of May they took him off of the adderall and put him on Abilify. I have been noticing serious aggression and anger and yelling there are things that I did not see in the home before he did those things while on the addreall in school and that is why he is in a different school. They did not gradually decrease his adderall they just stopped it and put him on different neds the same day. I was wondering if possible he is going through withdrawl symptoms from the Adderall. Any inquiries would be helpful Thanks ## In this case, it is actually hard to say, because it could be either from stopping the...

my son tested positive for cocaine is it possible that it came from the adderall

My son is 14 and has been taking Concerta for the past few years. Although his dose fluctuated, he was not perscribed the highest dose available. Now his doctors have changed his prescription to AdderallXR. Because the active ingredients are so similar to Meth, and knowing how very addicitive Amphedimines are, what are the chances he will be hooked unkowingly to speed and become one of the many lying, underhanded criminals associated with young men in our society ? Does it increase the probability? ## please have your son try another med. i took concerta for 3 years and in the past 2 1/2 month am taking XR 25mg and the side-effects are awful. if he gonna take addralll have him take tablets. please try something different now before he starts to show the seroius side-effects. but it work...

Ive been taking adderall xr. Today i was given Amphetamine salts TABBRR. Does anyone know about these and taken them. What is the difference does one work better than the other. Thanks ## Well the TABBRR just refers to the dosage form (tablet) and the manufacturer. This is just a generic version of the medication, instead of a name brand. ## Does anyone know of any help paying for this medication?

pill fell in oil
1 Reply RSS
I dropped my adderall in a bowl of olive oil and it's coated. Will it still work if I take it? p.s it's adderall IR, not XR ## In theory, I wouldn't think it would create any problems, but I'd suggest talking to your pharmacist to be certain. They often have more information on some obscure interactions that this site doesn't have. I am just basing my guess off the fact that there are no warnings between using it and eating products that use olive oil. The only issue I can really see with out information is if they pill was in it long enough to start dissolving, then you may not get the full dosage. Does anyone else have information on this?

list of fillers used adderall xr?
3 Replies RSS
I appreciate your time, does anyone know where I'd be able to find a list of fillers used in Adderall xr 20mg? A few years ago I was diagnosed with a blood allergy to corn and wheat and a few months ago I started having reactions every day about the same time as my medication was releasing. I have checked everywhere to find a list and have found nothing. I know it can vary, but if there is something I can at least reference because it just started recently. Thanks so much! ## Yes, it may vary if you are taking a generic or a name brand. However, in the name brand Adderall XR, the inactive ingredients are: gelatin capsules, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, methacrylic acid copolymer, opadry beige, sugar spheres, talc, and triethyl citrate. I don't see anything in this list that scr...
