I was taking this for 5 days when I broke out with a rash over my entire body with heavy itching. My doctor had to treat me with steroids to relieve it. I was hopping to finally be able to use my 143 IQ but at 66 I think I'll just live with it.

Comment:
Adderall is a great medicine to try as a second line stimulant. I recommend trying Concerta first because I experienced mania from Adderall, making me irritable to the point of rage. I am irritable without Adderall (a lot of people with Autism Spectrum disorders tend to have), but I never felt explosive, ripping my binders, cursing at the radio at 12:00 A.M. or doing reckless things often when I w ...
