Comment:
I have been taking the XR 20mg a day for about 6 months now and it has completely changed my life. You would have never known I had an attention problem because I was a very active teenager. I was involved in sports, many extracuricular activities and worked since I was 16 so my mind was constantly focused on something different. It became a problem after becoming a single mom. I couldn't o ... Show Full Comment

I loved being on adderall. But after heart palipitations I decided to stop - feeling additionally like I was becoming addicted. I suffered from complete drug induced psychosis that was misdiagnosed as bi-polar and caused me to have a total break down. DO NOT TAKE THIS DRUG it is dangerous! Do not stop taking adderal cold turkey either it also causes bad things to happen!

Comment:

Using this drug takes a lot of self discipline but if you can be responsible with it it can truly help the quality of your li ... Show Full Comment
