I still feel a little shame when I take this drug (I'm not one to even take aspirin!) but on behalf of my family and how much better I function on it - I take it. 5mg is plenty and I wouldn't suggest any more. It is just enough energy for me to get started on my daily tasks and actually complete some! As a result I am less overwhelmed (and paralyzed!) and feel much more competent and confident ...

It was helpful in the beginning with school and sport productivity, but that only lasted a year. I founded a new talent, art, which I went to college for one year.

36 y\o female with Extreme ADHD with rapid speech, continual non-stop movement, hyperactivity, impulsivity, rapid thoughts, fidgeting and body twitching. 30mg instant release Adderal 2 times a day in past much more effective then current 20mg 2 times a day dose. (Had just recently gotten back on Adderal after a few years off of it) This medication changed my life in my 20's. It's as if I am finally normal and can function like everyone else. Incredible for those suffering with extreme ADHD that makes life dysfunctional. Higher doses are better for more severe cases. Do not take high doses for mild ADHD. It has the ability to causes extreme anxiety and speed effects for those who do not need it.
