I was very pleased with Adderall for about 2 months. My brain finally woke up, I could focus and get things done, I had energy, I would gladly do dreaded tasks, and I finally felt normal.

Comment:
I feel like many doctors are prescribing far to high of a dosage of this medication to start. I am currently prescribed 30mg/day in 10mg tablets. I take one and a half before heading to my early classes, the other half approximately 5 hours later to get through my remaining classes, and am still able to come home and take a nap in the afternoon before taking the third one in the evening to study. ...
