Comment:
Was diagnosed 4 yrs ago and started with generic Ritalin - wasn't very effective. Switched to Adderall (2-10 mg per day) 2 yrs ago and it helped a lot more! Noticed that it would seem to "wear off" a couple hrs after taking it. Dosage was just increased to 2-10 mg and another 1/2 (5 mg) per day.

Comment:
as a former smoker, adderall makes me want to smoke cigarettes like crazy! Im not sure why.. Adderall makes me less emotional (as a woman it's a good thing) however, I kind of trip out over nothing when on adderall. I'd compare it to starting a new birth control and having one of those "Just let me cry about absolutely nothing" moments. I've spoken to my doctor and he says t ... Show Full Comment
