I hate this med for my adhd. It makes me feel like my skin is crawling. I was on Vyvanse and I loved it. But, my doctor switched me for two months to see how it would do for the long days at school, work, home etc. Just bad bad bad. One, and the only good thing I can can about it is that it started working right away. Then, when it kicked into high gear it was all down hill.

This medicine made me have serious headches, I felt like I was shaking all over my body. It's like speed, expect it's perscribed. People are easily addicted to it, you suffer withdrawal symptons like you would a drug. I do not suggest this medicine.

I have been on Adderall Oral for 1 year now, 20-25 mgs a day with a 'holiday' at least once a week . The positive: I see a huge change in my work habbits, and I'm able to get more tasks done in a shorter period of time. My mood is actually BETTER and I feel happier. I've lost weight (which I have always had a hard time with). The negatives: My hands and feet are always cold, som ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I started taking Adderall for ADD about 3 years ago. It works wonderful for the ADD symptoms. I was able to study and concentrate. However, the side effects are not worth it. I had insomnia, shortness of breath and increased heart rate. I felt like my heart was going to beat right out of my chest. I now deal with my ADD symptoms without medication and I'm a lot happier.
