Adderall XR causing extremely dry eyes

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...

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 effects after 6-8 hours in system

My son takes 20 mg of Adderall XR in the morning. Is it true that 6-8 hrs after taking Adderall XR a person can/will experiencing negative side effects, such as withdrawal. ## I don't take the XR version, but I have noticed when I do take a big dose in the AM and then miss my 2:00 dose I feel sick to my stomach and very tired. ## What do you consider to be withdrawal symptoms? Can you please post back and be more specific? The FDA lists the typical side effects of Adderall XR as possibly including nausea, dizziness, irritability, anxiety, insomnia, weight loss, and anorexia. The length of time these take to manifest can vary from person to person. Has he consulted his medical practitioner?

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...

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...

Adderall reviews

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!

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

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...
