I May need ADDitional Help!!!
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
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.

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...

Adderall danger
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...

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
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
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...

addicition???
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...

anyone know
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
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?
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...

My 12 yr. old on adderall is high strung at night
He is on 20 mg in the morning, and by 7:00 at night his behavior is more aggressive, high strung, obnoxious, compulsive. After about 2 hours of this behavior, he usually falls asleep. He takes depakote and lamictol for bipolar disorder as well. When is mental health research going to come up with a way to diagnose and treat? Right now it takes a highly experienced doctor with a brain packed with knowledge to even begin to know what med, how much, and how to change the plan when it is not working very well. There are very few that can do this, but even finding a children psychiatrist your insurance will cover is next to impossible. What do I do. Is there a way to decrease the negative effects that occur in the evenings? Should another ADHD med be tried? ## I have 3 kids that are adhd and...

racing heart 2 days
went to doc today and everything is fine Thank God! i was told that the xanax that i took helped calmed down the situation down alot. to those of you who are working on the levels that best works for you, don't assume you can go up a complete 10mgs. after talking to doc, i should have asked permission for going up to 5mgs instead of 10 that i asked for. he said if 2 didn't work it'd be okay for me to try 10 = 30mg dosage for the whole day. which with most people would have been okay. i now see i need 5mg increments as i'm still adjusting to what level works for me. not his fault but mine. most people tolerate an additional 10mgs pretty easily. do be careful and use the smallest additional increments of adderall that your body will take. even if you have a high tolerance,...

heart racing for 2 days ...
has anyone taken adderall 12.5 ir and has serious heart pounding, heart feeling like it was going to burst? i did last night and it went on for about 20-30 minutes. today, it's was still racing this morning and i have not taken anymore adderall. i did take 3 because 2 wasn't doing anything for me. HELP ANYONE OUT THERE WITH SAME EXPERIENCE. should i be scared? it has calmed down little bit after taking 2 xanax. ## Adderall contains mixed amphetamine salts, so it is a stimulant and that can be a common side effect, especially if you take too much. You should never try to self-adjust this type of medication, it can be very dangerous. Along with the racing pulse, it can elevate blood pressure and you could experience heart attack or stroke. Have you consulted your doctor about this...
