    Started taking Adderall 5 years ago and it has worked incredibly well. I set the alarm for an hour before I need to be up and when the alarm goes off, I wake up just long enough to swallow the pill with a bunch of water then I go back to sleep. Without fail, I wake up almost exactly an hour later feeling awake and energetic. The energy continues throughout the day and wears off in time for me to f ... 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!

    I have been on Adderall for 3 years now. Its been a miracle for my school and work life. However, this drug is addicting and can easily be abused. It has really helped me but I worry about my dependence on it and the effects it may be having on my heart in the long run. 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

    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
