    My son is taking this medication for his ADD. He was on Concerta previously but it caused him to have some patches of hair missing in the back of his head after 3yrs of taking it. He started on the Adderall about 2 months ago and thank goodness has never had any of the side effects that go with certain ADD medications. I am very satified with this treatment and he is able to concentrate at school ... Show Full Comment

    I have had ADD ALL of my life. My PCP prescribed ADDERALL 10mg twice a day. With the very first dose I experienced chest tightness, palpatations, and high blood pressure. Through the symptoms, I was able to complete tasks and computer entries with speed and ease. I was able to read like never before. Not only did I retain what I read,I enjoyed it. However, the symptoms are not lessening and I must ... Show Full Comment

    I have always had a hard time staying focused on tasks and keeping my mind on track.My Dr. first prescribed me 20 mg 2x a day and I was edgy and had hard time sleeping so I dropped my dosage to 10 mg 1x a day or maybe another half if needed and am doing great

    My son takes this medication for ADHD. In the beginning he had shortness of breath and hot flashes. After a couple days he was dizzy and has an upset stomach. He did not eat very much. My son would focus more in school and be more calm but he developed anger issues, and he would yell at his parents and siblings which he hadn't done before. The littlest thing would annoy him, and at times he se ... Show Full Comment

    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. Then after 2 or 3 months, it was not so effective. At 4 months my doctor increased the dosage from 10 MG to 15 MG twice a day. The outcome: I broke out in a rash on my stomach and sides by the end of day 1. Even ... Show Full Comment
