How many mg of 20 mg adderall XR are released at once?
I have been prescribed adderall XR 20 mg pills. Does this mean that 10 mg of the adderall is release initially and the other 10 mg is released periodically throughout the day? Or does it mean that 20 mg of adderall is released consistantly throughout the day, so I will be experiencing 20mg of adderall for about 12 hours?

  It's never OK to take someone else's prescription. Go to your doctor, talk to him or her, but don't take your brother's RX. Adderall is a C2 narcotic, you could really hurt yourself.

Help! I just took my regular 10 mg dose of adderall and ate cucumbers and radishes what do I do?
I just read that cucumber has Vitamin C.. does that mean that my adderall isn't going to work today at all? Would drinking coffee do anything to help make it work more? How about if I take another adderall?

  What ever you do don't take another adderall. My son takes it too. You could over dose on it. Just call your doctor or pharmacy to get the real answers.

  I wouldn't (and don't drink) when the adderall is in my system. Remember that adderall has a half life in hours so by the evening time, it will have been metabolized already and out of your system.

Adderall 10mg before bed?
Hi everyone!! I'm on a few psychotropic medications. I take a 30mg Adderall XR in the morning.

My doctor has instructed me to take 1-.5mg Adderall pill just before bed. I asked her if that was accurate and she said "yes' that it was,but didn't really get any explanation.

I've noticed that when I take vs. when I don't take it my dreams are very vivid and when I don't take it I experience horrible dreams and sleep and wake up with anxiety.
Sometimes it can be a mixture of both or one stronger than the other types of dreams. Very strange. I'm more interested in why at bedtime she has me taking this.

Aside from the dreams,does anyone have any kind of knowledge as to why the doctor would have me take amphetamine sulphate or Adderall at bedtime? What is the point of giving me a stimulant right before bed? Isn't the point of Adderall to keep you wide awake and super focused...etc?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

What does cigarette effect on Adderall XR?
Hello I am trying to find answer about cigarette effect on Adderall XR. I do smoke sometimes so first time I took Adderall XR 10 mg and it was great so after few days later, I started to lose my focus and seem that it doesn't do well for me. Is it because I smoke and it can cause to lose effect from Adderall XR? I hope I can receive good answers, thanks.

  Check the insert that came with your medication. Adderall has been prescribed to also help quit smoking, so check the insert for recommendations and product warnings. As a sidebar, it's also supposed to help reduce the risk of weight gain associated with quitting smoking.

Meth vs. Adderall XR? 5 stars?
I have taken Adderall XR once or twice and never gotten addicted to it. using 50mcg. I admit being a little depressed but I was offered to take meth snorting it that is. but I didnt because I know its a nasty drug. But is meth really that bad to try it at least once. They say that meth is 10times more stronger than adderall... amphetmines that is.?

  save yourself the risk of a possible problem. if you get addicted to other things easily such as sex, alcohol, money, then more then likley you will have a problem with it. i am high on meth right now and it aint all that. right now i feel like my hearts going to explode. can you imagine what that feels like? scary, and there is nothing i can do about it but sit here and take it. one day my heart prob will explode. and ill be f**ked.

Adderall XR 20 mg not working?
I was recently prescribed Adderall XR 20 mg. Its been about a week and I can hardly tell its working. I just drink a ton of water and use the bathroom a LOT, but I still daydream all day and people always have to repeat things to me because I zone out and cant listen at all. I still have almost every other symptom I've always had.
Adderall used to work for me back in high school, I would take it and I felt great! I would take pages of notes every class and never felt awkward in social situations, I could be outgoing and be myself without worrying what anyone thinks. That adderall was a 30 mg XR though.
I also suffer from social anxiety and depression, and I have been taking 100 mg Zoloft daily for months.
So do you think my dose could be too low or has anything changed that makes adderall not even work for me any more?? Also is there any way to make it more effective? I heard drinking baking soda mixed with water works but it sounds disgusting.
Thanks a lot

Can adderall cause this? Can I do this while taking adderall?
I started taking Adderall 20mg about a week ago. Sometimes I get hot flashes and my face gets all red. Is this normal? Also, can you drink beer while on it and smoke small amounts of pot once in a while? I also take welbutrin 150mg, celexa 20mg, and corgard 20mg.

  Hot flashes are one of the side effects of being on it.
I take adderall also and I occassionally have hot flashes too. Drink a lot of water when you take it. That helps me.

Also, don't drink or smoke pot when you take it or when you dose is in effect. That will make your side effects worse and it will probably intensify the medicine and make you have more problems.

Has anyone mixed adderall xr 10 mg with vicodin? (NOT DRUG ABUSE)?
I just started taking adderall xr 10mg three days ago. The first day it helped a lot with concentration and effectiveness. I am also taking vicodin and penicillin for a mouth infection, also started three days ago. My big issue is that i am having side effects like extreme confusion, fatigue and depression among others. Each of these symptoms can be caused by allergic reactions from penicillin OR adderall. Before I trial and error by discontinuing use of one of them (most likely penicillinn), I was hoping someone could tell me if it's just from mixing adderall and vicodin.

  Starting these three together was a bad idea, exactly for the reason you've run in to: which new med is causing the problem? Who wrote you adderall xr on top of the other meds?

However, you are in the situation you are in. Confusion and fatigue are side effects of vicodin. This is why you were told not to drive while taking it. This is not an allergy to vicodin. It is the sedative effect of a powerful pain medicine.

Your symptoms are not an allergy to penicillin or adderall. An allergy would present completely differently. Adderall can disrupt your sleep at night but would give you energy for the day. Three days in, the sleep disruption would be unlikely to overpower the stimulant, so this isn't likely.

Do not stop the penicilin. That will leave you with a drug-resistant infection.

Call the doctors who prescribed the meds and tell them what is going on. If you can't wait until Monday, discontinue the vicodin. It is almost certainly what is causing your fatigue and malaise.

Anyone taking adderall xr and lose weight?
I'm 19 and have recently been diagnosed with adhd. I'm on Adderall XR 15 mg and its working wonders for me. I have been on this med for 1 week and a half and I'm finding its not lasting. After lunch its really hard for me to focus. Does a higher dose prove to be more effective? Also, I really like that it is helping me lose weight! Is there a particular diet that helps while on adderall?

how many 10 mg Dextroamphetamine sulfate or "dexies" tablets do I need to feel up and high?
It's not Adderall because I'm perscribed to two different types of adderall and this isn't the same.
I'm perscribed to 20mg xr adderall and 10 mg tablets then someone gave me these dexies and told me they are way better... so will they make you more aware and awake?

  The brand name is Dexedrine, dexies is just slang.

It is impossible to know how anyone will react to a drug. You may not get high at all, you may have a bunch of side effects and the experience could be terrible. If you are someone who gets "high" from dextroamphetamine it might take as little as 5 mg or it could be much higher. Medically the maximum dose is 60 mg/day, typically dived into 2-3 doses. However larger doses may be appropriate for people with sleeping disorders but large doses in particular should only be used under careful medical supervision.

I can't advise you use the drug to get high. Dextroamphetamine is speed and I don't mean "sort of speed" or "similar to speed," I mean it is pharmaceutical grade speed. So there is a risk of addiction and people can have significant side effects.

Having said that if you are still going to use it keep the dose as small as you can. Since a small dose may be enough start there and if you really want you can increase it. Regular Dexedrine (there is also an extended-release form (capsules) works very quickly. And side effects are typically dose dependent, meaning a higher dose increases the chance and severity of side effects.

  I'm not a MD, but you should really ask one. Anyone can lie to you on the internet, and it really isn't safe to be taking medical advice like this from strangers who want points. I'm not sure, but I think your local pharmacy can answer that question. And it shouldn't cost you anything

I am prescribed prilosec and adderall xr how can I take these medications without drug interactions?

  Yes, it is actually the same thing.
Avoid taking it in the afternoon or evening, as it may keep you up all night.

The most common side effect with antipsychotics and mild central nervous system stimulants are:

Inability to fall or stay asleep, nervousness, paranoia, panic attacks, etc. (But please don't panic)

Just stay calm and avoid stressful situations or people when taking your medication.

And do know if you're taking meds./drugs to help you feel better mentally, they will always make you feel a little worst psychologically.

Take care of yourself

I take Adderall XR 30 mg daily and want to drink safely. Will I be ok if I skip my dose that day?
I do not drink often and am going to a friends wedding so I want to drink and have fun but do not want to get out of control because the adderall decreases my ability to know when I am drunk. I just want to know if all the adderall will be out of my system if I skip the dose for 1 day.

  Adderall XR is the sustained release formulation and it will take up to 1 day for the Adderall to clear from your bloodstream. It may be possible for you to hold the Adderall for one day depending on why you are on it. It is always best to check with the prescribing doctor before you hold a dose and I would suggest you do that before.

  I was on Adderall XR 20mg for a year and my doctor took me off of them because I went from being 20 pounds over weight to 20 pounds underweight, the side effects will continue as long as you take the pills so if you stop taking the pills you'll regain your appetite and your penis will go back to its normal size.

Hope I helped!

Effects of Adderall XR 10 mg?
I just got diagnosed with ADHD today for the first time in my life, I'm 17 years old, and the doctor prescribed me a low dosage of Adderall xr 10 mg. I'm excited to start taking it because for once in my life I may be able to actually focus and keep a train of thought, but I also want to know more of what im getting into. So if anyone has ever taken adderall xr 10 mg can you please tell me what your experience was like and what kind effects you had and what I should expect. Some info about me: I very recently turned 17 and I'm 5 feet and 1 1/2 inches tall and weigh121 pounds. any info will help THANKs SO MUCH!

  well, as you know, its a really strong stimulant, so take it slow and easy. ive been on it for 2 years now, and im tolerant to the highest max dose, so i suggest not to take it everyday, and if you need a higer dosage change, go in small incriments- so it takes longer to become tolerant to it. also, it will make you lose alot of weight, it will make you not hungry at all, and when you look at food, it kinda makes you neaseous, so drink lots of water and make sure you eat! what i did was before i even took it, i would eat a meal (not a small or big meal, just normal size meal), and then take it, because if you dont eat, then you'll not eat for the rest of the day. it helped me alot, it changed my life for the better, but again, make sure you take it slow, and try not to take it everyday. also, it may change your social skills, (like now you wont talk all day during class and would want to stay home and do hw instead of going out). that happened a lot to me, if you notice that youre social skills are becoming different, try to change it. like, i noticed i wasnt going out on the weekends anymore, so i forced myself to go out and have fun for at least once a week. but i hoped this helps...and good luck!!:)

Is it safe to take the 5-hour energy drink with Adderall?
I take Adderall XR 40mg. (I've been on it daily for quite a while though. It doesn't have the same effect on me as people who only take it when needed)

I was wondering if it would be safe to take the 5-hour energy drink later in the day. (Once I feel the Adderall start to wear off?)

My Adderall XR (30 mgs.) has pooped out...?
I've been taking Adderall XR (30 mgs.) since October 2006. My doctor told me to take it everyday since I'm an adult (20-years-old). I just don't feel like myself if I don't take it in the morning.

I've noticed that it has lost some of its effectiveness. When I started taking it in October, I was able to work on my homework for hours upon hours upon hours. Is this normal? I've also noticed that if I don't take it for a good four days, it works a lot better. I have to take it everyday though because I have college classes! What's the deal? My younger brother (freshman in high school) has noticed the same thing!

Should I switch to Adderall without extended release (XR)? I've heard the quick-acting Adderall works a lot better. Help!

  Hey there, I just saw your other post about Ritalin.
I'm 31 and have always had ADHD. I've been on Ritalin and Adderall, but my hair started to thin and I got too skinny. I've started a bit ago on Wellbutrin XL. It's a bit unconventional, but I live in Asia and it's used for that here.
I've never known Adderall to poop out, but I find Wellbutrin to be a lot more helpful. There are no highs and lows at all, and I am alert and hard working all day. I've never noticed a reduction in effectiveness. I can't say enough good about it.
I'm not sure how your doctor feels about it, but it's worth asking about.
Good luck with whatever you do!

What is the difference between Ritalin SR and Adderall XR?
I plan to switch from Dexedrine (r) 15mg tid to either Ritalin SR or Adderall XR 20mg tid = 60mg total daily. I also want to know from people who have used Ritalin IR (immediate release) dosing of 20 tid = 60 mg total daily.

I prefer answers from members who have actually *used* the drug rather than regurgitated information from the internet. I have done my fair share of research to create my own library.

So far, I have read that Ritalin, and Ritalin SR preparations have more or a dopaminergic (i.e., dopamine agonist) effect than amphetamines, e.g., Adderall and Dexedrine. I cannot explain this very well in laymen's terms, but, if you have used medications that inihibit reuptake of a certain chemical, then you know where I am going with this (e.g., anti-depressants, ect).

To summarize, I am torn between the dopamine reuptake inhibiting Ritalin/Ritalin SR and Adderall XR dosing at 20mg tid. Adderall has a longer T1/2 (half-life) than Ritalin. Dexedrine T1/2 is 12-48 hrs

  I have used both for ADHD. I personally like the Adderall better, but Ritalin has been around for a long time and has a good safety record. I would really go by what works best and has the least side effects for you, everyone is different. Sorry I don't have a definitive answer for you but my preference is Adderall.

  LoL... if you only had one dose, with no chance of getting more, i'd say the energy drink is worse for you.. But, 15 milligrams, will eventually turn into 30mgs, then 50mgs, then more and more. Energy drinks aren't exactly addictive, amphetamine (adderall) is...

How does adderall and hydrochlorothiazide react when taken together?
I want to lower my blood pressure when I take adderall by taking a water pill called hydrochlorothiazide. On my prescription info it warns me to tell my doctor when I take both together. Why? What is the reaction from taking a water pill and adderall?
Is it okay to do it if I drink mass amounts of water?

  Adderall (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine) affects the blood pressure. Hydrochlorothiazide, a diuretic, removes extra water from the body in order to maintain the blood pressure within the parameters set by your physician.

If you have moderate to severe high blood pressure, please point your medications and your condition to your doctor. It is not recommended to drink extra fluid because it will simply make the hydrochlorothiazide's dose ineffective; plus ingesting extra fluid might cause hypertension due to your body's condition and may strain the heart.

  Dextroamphetamine IS different than Adderall. Adderall, which is the brand name for generic "Amphetamines", contains 4 different amphetamine salts including dextroamphetamine.

Dexedrine is the brand name for dextroamphetamine, just like Adderall is the brand name for amphetamines. Dexedrine and Adderall work primarily the same. Dexedrine is pure dextroamphetamine and it will basically help you focus, and it will supress your appetite the same as Adderall. Dexedrine is a little bit stronger than Adderall at equal doses.

They are both addicting, but if you truly have ADD/ADHD, you most likely will not get addicted to them because they work differently in ppl that have ADD/ADHD compared to a normal person taking it. Thats why you HAVE to have a script for it. You should REALLY find something else to get high on if that is what you are using it for. I say that because they both make you feel really good the 1st week or 2 at the most, even if you have ADD like me. BUT after that "honeymoon'' period, it doesn't make you feel happy anymore, unless you take pretty much double what your supposed to. If you do this, you will run out really quickly and it is VERY detrimental to your organs (read studies).

I remember when I first was prescribed Adderall, I thought it was the best thing ever(I had experimented illegally with other things in the past). And what was even better was that I had a prescription for it! I could be getting high legally everyday! But I soon realized after 1 week, I didn't feel euphoric anymore, but it still helped my focus (which was the major problem with ADD). So I never abused it after that and I take it like I was prescribed and it still really helps me focus. I get my "highs" from other things like sports, but I will still dabble in experimenting with other drugs.

Pretty much if you take it like you are supposed to for the purpose of helping you concentrate and focus, then it is a life saver. BUT if you take it to get high and feel good, it will only bring bad results. And the bad effects will come quickly and cause permanent damage at high doses. Good Luck!
