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...

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
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

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...
