I was diagnosed wig ADD. I gave a big problem staying focus on one task. I usually end up starting 12 tasks and not finishing a one. Or not be able to start because of all of my ideas or plans for it. I've been on Adderall xr for about 45 days. I take 30mg in the morning and another 30mg around lunch. Never once had a euphoric feeling, yet it seemed to have been working! Now I don't have any focus like before I was on the med. I'm taking it directly as prescribed. I've never been on any other meds prior. Any insight. ## Sorry for the typos, also I don't get much sleep, always had this problem but it is worst with this med. My schedule is pretty hectic; I'm a single mother, active duty military, and full time student. I have managed to maintain a 3.8 GPA only By t...

adderall dexedrine xr ir er vyvanse sweating hyperhidrosis
1 Reply RSS
Hi: I've been prescribed Adderall 20mg IR (generic amphetamine salts, 2x daily) and I found I was just dripping sweat in any type of heat or even at 40 deg after some exertion. My doctor switched me to dextroamphetamine (again, generic, 10 mg, 2x daily), and there is no improvement. The new drug is not as effective as the Adderall. My doctor is not that familiar with this class of drugs, but my pharmacist specialized in mental health drugs and suggested that an ER or XR version might work better. I've also read that some people do better on certain types of generics or the name brands. Has anyone found that: 1) an extended release version has physical side effects (i.e., sweating)? 2) a name brand, rather than generic, has been more effective at preventing side effects? 3) a dif...

I've been diagnosed Bipolar II. Am currently on, and have been for a few years, Paxil, Lamictal, risperdal and klonopin. Dr just prescribed 20mg Adderall XR cuz I've been complaining about distractibility. I've never been diagnosed with ADD. I've only been on the drug for two weeks, and after reading a bunch of stuff online, I'm scared to death of this drug. I wanna stop but I'm afraid of the crash. Will it be fairly easy since I've only been on it for two weeks? ## Hello, Deb! How are you? Yes, it will most likely be fairly easy, after such a short time, but you will still probably experience a crash. What side effects are scaring you? Perhaps those can be addressed to help you. The FDA classifies this medication as a stimulant, so it carries the risk of bei...

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...

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...

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!

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...

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...
