this drug causes extreme depression after extended use. i believe this drug should be taken OFF the market and reevaluated. this drug can cause thoughts of suicide, eratic behavior, mood swings, bouts of hysteria and overall should be in a class of its own for ONLY the severely mentally ill that need institutionalizing! the fact that CHILDREN are taking this drug is HORRIFIC and is going to end up ...

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:
I recently learned that I have ADD at age 36 and my doctor put me on 20mg of Adderall XR and I noticed that I get tired around 3pm. It's difficult for me to sleep sound (taking 1 mg of Ativan at bedtime), so I'm not sure about taking another dose. I'll be increasing to 30mg in 1 week, but will that help my afternoon crash? Also, is there anything out there that can help me sleep bet ... Show Full Comment
