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...

20mg Adderall XR - New Patient!
3 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...

Almost 11 yr old new start at 20mg? adderall xr
2 Replies RSS
My daughters doc placed her on Adderall XR starting at 20mg. She is almost 11 but tall and over 100lbs which was docs reason for starting higher. I haven't given it yet. The pharmacist told me it's a middle of the road dose but most start lower. Of course he didn't see how big she is. Anyone able to let me know if this is normal to start at 20mg? She has been tested in school, by a psychologist, and by parent and teacher rating scales. She also tests as having some ODD which the doc thinks is more from the ADD. She is not diagnosed as hyper. Please let me know! ## It can vary by age and weight, so it is always best to follow a doctor's instructions, but don't be afraid to ask them questions, if you are worried. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of b...

Adderall 10mg IR
2 Replies RSS
I have recently started taking adderall 10mg IR. I was wondering how long the side affects last? I think it may make my anxiety a little worse, but it's like a belly ache anxiety not like my regular paranoid anxiety. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or input. My doctor started me on the IR to see how my body reacts to it and then said we could try the XR if I didn't want to eventually have to take multiple doses. ## The side effects may last about 4 to 5 weeks, until your body gets used to the medication, according to FDA reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, nervousness, insomnia, and anorexia. Are you on any other medications? How many times are you taking it each day? ## I too was recently prescribed Adderall IR 10MG. I've b...

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...

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!

I have been diagnosed and been taking Adderall XR for 15 years. I just called to schedule my appointment with my doctor and they told me sorry but he left without warning and I need to find another provider. I'm in a panic. I am on disability for numerous mental health and chronic illnesses and have been taking this med along with many others for 20 years. I am terrified of falling out of my routine with my meds. I don't know what or where to go and have no other doctors to go to. I'm just frantically trying to find someone who might know of where I can go to prevent a serious medical issue. Any suggestions on what or where I can get help would be GREATLY appreciated. I'm really starting to become hopeless because I have been desperately trying to find help with no succe...

*seeing new doctor tmrw & adderall refill
1 Reply RSS
I recently moved back to Michigan after living in South Dakota for two years. My doctor from SD wrote me three paper prescriptions that I picked up the end of February, each dated for March 2nd, April 2nd, and May 2nd. Tomorrow I'm going to see a new doctor here in Michigan to establish care. I am going to speak with the new doctor about increasing my dosage. (I haven't had an actual appointment with my SD doctor since October or else I would've discussed this with him before moving) Anyway, I'm going to the same office I did before moving, so my new doc will be able to see my history in their system. I had my prescription filled two days ago (still have one left, which I will shred or give to new doc.) My question is, if my new doc increases my dosage, will I be able to...

Adderall XR causing extremely dry eyes
2 Replies 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...
