Comment:
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

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

I needed this to help get me through exams. It helped alright. It helped me pull al-nights without feeling tired the next morning. I could work through the whole night in fact. However, it took a full 24 hours to get out of my system. Until then. no matter how badly my system craved sleep, I didn't feel tired and could not fall asleep. I felt really miserable. Without it, I wouldnt have dont w ... Show Full Comment
