    I began taking Adderall about 5 years ago. I am 33 years old and wonder what my life could have been like if I had this medication during my school years. Adderall has been a lifesaver for me! I always felt like I was being left behind in school because the others could learn things so much faster than I could, but since Adderall I feel like I am on an even playing field.

    This medication makes me have terrible moodswings. I sometimes can't controll them. I also get serious pounding headachs when the med wears-off. It sometimes lasts for hours. I also sometimes get numbness in my face and arm. Today was the worst experiance I had with this. I am 35 and take 15mg 2x per day 3 months now

    I can't "function" without this medication. Only downside, my blood pressure is steadily increasing the longer I take it.

    I come from an good middle class, educated family and discovered that I was ADD recently. I am a high school teacher, an athlete and a father of a beautiful 5 year old autistic child. As I learned about autism I saw there was a connection with ADD and I thought I had it. Well I have always been very ant-meds but I was still very curious to try and see what meds could perhaps do for me. My AD ... Show Full Comment
