On these drugs, you feel highly elevated in whatever the mood you previously had. If you are hanging out it makes you almost stoned and relaxed but if you're at a party it will make you crazy, almost like the feel of having cocaine. Either way it prevents being tired and you feel happy.

The overly calm and euphoric feeling help ease out stress so you can focus better, when you take drugs you are supposed to know the side effects and be cautious. Please see the experience of a user of these drugs, given below.

An Experience:

I was first put on methylphenidate (Ritalin) for ADHD at age 18 (yeah, they finally figure out what's wrong with me after 18 years.) Ritalin and my body didn't really work well together, because I felt a horrible crash. When the crash hit me, I wanted to throw a chair through the wall. I was a monster.

So, my psychiatrist switched me over to Adderall XR and it was a lot better. The first time I took Adderall XR, I did feel a bit more "on the edge," but it works for me. The feelings of edginess went away shortly. So, not really overly calm and euphoric. Plus since it's XR, I don't get a horrible crash.

Are children sometimes overly emotional while on Adderall XR?

My 8 year-old son has been very moody and has experienced bad temper and even "crisis" since he has been Adderall XR. We are seeking the advice of a psychiatrist to find out what's going on and maybe switched back to Ritalin which he has benn taken for the past two year. . I was asking myself about the same answer... I'm not a psychiatrist, but I've been on Ritalin, Adderall, and Adderall XR since being diagnosed with ADHD. Also, I teach high school English, so I do have a little insight from students as well. Everyone will react differently to each drug due to dosage, brain chemistry, other medications, and don't forget environmental factors. I don't know how much this helps, but I HATED the XR. I went back to regualar Adderall after trying XR for one month because it didn't feel like it was working--on the same mg dosage as the regular Adderall. With ADD and ADHD many are diagnosed with depression prior to ADD or ADHD or what's known as a "cluster" because symptoms are all over the place. For example, disorganization of personal space (bedroom, car, locker, desk) causes depression. Trying and being unable to organize causes anxiety and sometimes mini-manic cleaning episodes (doing tasks that have an end in sight like alphabetizing CD's or books). Once organized these symptoms disappear. However, once you plateau on your medication, the cycle starts to rear its ugly head again, depression begins, and so on. The anger/frustration/lashing out may come from being at a "plateau" from the XR releasing at a different rate than a Ritalin. Ritalin zaps you into alertness, XR hums. The change may be too drastic and it feels like a lower dose than he is used to taking. I would definitely talk to my doctor after a month is there was no improvement

No, you do not need a hyphen for "overly excited", even if it precedes whatever it modifies. For example, "Gus worked himself into an overly excited state whenever the discussion was about politics." The hyphen is not necessary because the -ly suffix in the adverb "overly" makes it clear that it modifies "excited".
