I have a mild case of ADD, and did try Adderall in middle school. On a good day I was like a 70s burnout, on a bad day it was like being on horse tranquilizer.
thats because they were giving you too high of a dosage, at the proper dosage levels it wouldnt have made you a zombie. usually you hear that with ritalin tho
The stuff has a very high black market value, Ive seen people pay $10/pill.
Im pretty sure they suggest not taking your adderall in the evening... for reasons you have discovered. You basically described a speed trip. It feels great eh? Its hella addictive. Watch yourself... Once your body gets used to it, you might just want to do more to feel the same. It creeps up on you...
I find that these drugs destroy my appetite, to the point where Im always sooooo hungry when Im on them but I cant eat a damn thing. Its a pretty bad feeling.
When you first start taking adderall, and most amphetamines i would assume, it does induce a mild euphoria (HDCs "really happy") but that goes away pretty fast. and around here 20mg XRs are about 4-5 bucks a pill, because i couldnt afford my legal perscription i was buying 10mg XRs from a friend for a while and paying around 2-3$ a pill, which is still DRASTICALLY cheaper than the actual perscription (about 6.50 a pill for 10mgs) and stimulants are appetite suppressants, it would almost make me sick to eat when i was on ritalin and not as bad but still zero appetite on adderall. also eat an hour before you take the adderall IIRC, eating after taking it, or taking it too soon after eating can reduce its effective dose by over 50%
2) A lot of energy. I took adderall at 5pm on the first day. Stay up till 6am. Wasnt tired, but went to bed because I just wanted to. Woke up at 11am, and didnt even feel exhausted. (Usually I'm groggy with 8 hours of sleep. 5 hours would DESTROY me. But it didnt.) Stimulant medications will do that lol
3) I seem to be more talkative, but with a one track mind. Like, instead of being talkative and going on about a million different things, I seem to be somewhat the same talkative level, but I seem to focus on ONE general subject. (But this means, I can also keep going ON and ON about the same thing, because I need to stay focused on something.) again, stimulant meds tend to make people more outgoing and inclined to talk to people
4) I seem to be "speeding" as my mom calls it. Like, talking fast, moving fast, etc. Thats because it IS speed lol, desoxyn is the perscription name for methamphetamine, and adderall is just a combination of 4 amphetamine salts (
One thing to keep in mind is amphetamine tolerance builds INCREDIBLY FAST. i would avoid taking it every single day if you can, alternate days, take a multivitimin like you already are, plus omega 3 fatty acid. also magnesium can greatly increase the efficacy of adderall, i had a friend who has been taking it for years and had a pretty large tolerance to it (20mg XR and 2 10mg XRs a day was his dosage) and i gave him some magnesium to take and he took it with a 10mg pill and said it worked better than the 20s usually did for him. there is a great forum you can check out http://www.addforums.com
which has a TON of info on the various medications and suppliments and things that can help people in managing ADD
i've spent the last 2-3 years of my life dealing with various doctors and government agencies in trying to get treatment for my ADD-I so i have done a TON of research on the various medications, and different facts about ADD so if anybody wants to talk about it hit me up on instant messenger or PM me. Interestingly enough a lot of ADD people who dont know they have it tend to self medicate without realizing it, drinking lots of coffee and mt dew and that sort of thing because caffiene is a stimulant, just not a very good one
