So i was recently perscribed Adderall by my docter because i have had a hard time concentrating in school for a while now. And it kinda sucks. I mean yeah i have been able to get alot more of my work done now, pay attention in class, know how to do problems and actually be able to read the chapter and remember what i had read and be able to understand it. But the only thing that sucks so far is, I havent slept all day. Havent really been eating much. and it's currently 4:06AM and i have to wake up for school at 6:40am. and i am not tired at all.

Has anyone else on this fourm been perscribed Adderall for problems, Did you guys end up having problems sleeping or eating?

I was on Adderall freshman and sophmore year. I could definitely pay attention more, but I felt really depressed. Didn't feel like doing anything, didn't want to talk to anybody, and no appetite. That shit sucked.

x2 except replace Adderall with Concerta. Buddy you should get off that shit, if I could go back I would have never started taking it.

stop taking them and simply try studying harder :dunno:

if it's giving you insomnia you should probably tell your doctor about that though, that's a pretty nasty side effect.

What strength/mg amount were you given? What are the dosing directions? Is it the sustained release caps or just the plain little tablets?

It is technically a stimulant, if I remember my drug education class from last year. Kind of backwards thinking IMO, but that would probably explain the insomnia, hopefully after a couple of days your body will start getting used to the medication.

Haha. It has to be the XR, as they are SUPPOSED to last around 8 hours or so. If you take the Adderall XR in the morning, it should wear off by early evening. If this isn't working, ask the doctor for regular adderall, the non extended release version. Concerta and Adderall XR are almost the same thing.

x2 on EVERYTHING you just said, Adderall is horrible. I was also on Zoloft b/c of the depression shit b/c the doctor wouldn't take me off. I just off'd it on my own

thats what i did, but i wasn't too much in to modding my Pontiac Parisienne

I've been on Adderall XR and Instant Release since my senior year of high school (4 years). And honestly, I couldn't go a day without that stuff now. I take an XR dose in the morning, and it usually makes me crash real bad and get really tired and pissy about 5-6 hours after taking it before the 2nd stage of it kicks in. So I take an Instant Release about 5 hours after my extended release, and it covers that lull in the XR effect until, like I said, the XR 2nd stage kicks in.

And the best part is that my Instant Release prescription is to take it as needed, so I get a like 45 as a 30-day supply. My doctor even told me that if I've got a test I'm studying for or something like that, or I feel the Adderall wearing off, it's perfectly fine to pop an Instant Release real quick. Good stuff. GREAT during midterms and finals weeks.

The sleep and appetite side effects will lessen in intensity after a little while, as your body gets used to the stimulant. If you continue to have serious sleep problems, feel yourself getting increasingly anxious, or possibly having temper issues, tell them to decrease the dose. Give the stuff a chance, it really has been a miracle worker for me.
