    I began taking Adderall XR but found some of the negative side effects, ie restlessness, trouble sleeping, mood swings to be troublesome. I stopped taking it for one year and returned to my problem of not being able to focus and complete a task. I asked for a low dose 5mg. (not XR) that I could take once or twice a day as needed.

    WARNING... as addictive as heroin! I was on 60mg a day for four years, worked great at first, then became heavily addicted. Stopped helping me focus after the first 2 years and needed it to even function! I had to go to drug rehab to get off this stuff, not worth it!

I sleep well, I've not lost weight, I feel "normal" Before I was diagnosed with adult ADHD I was angry, bouts of crying, poor memory, outburst, couldn't sleep and unable to concentrate.
