What is Adderall?

Adderall is a central nervous stimulant which affects chemicals in the brain that contribute to hyperactivity and impulse control. Adderall is most commonly used to treat ADHD, and also narcolepsy. Adderall is a brand-name for amphetamine. Amphetamine is a controlled substance in most countries and is only dispensed under the authorization of a doctor. Amphetamine works by increasing two chemicals in the brain: dopamine and norepinephrine. Both chemicals play a role in focus and attention, and by raising these levels amphetamine is able to help a person concentrate and sit still for longer periods of time. Adderall comes in two formulations: Adderall (Immediate release) and Adderall XR (Extended release). Adderall comes in doses of 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5, 15, 20, and 30 mg. Adderall XR is available in 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 mg doses. See related questions for information on side effects, what to avoid, and drug interactions. To put in shortly, Adderall is a combination of 4 amphetamine salts in a 3:1 ratio. Now do your own research...

What does 40 mg adderall look like?

Depends on what a few things. If it is Adderall Xr (the time release version of Adderall), it will look like at least 2 capsules, clear on one end and a solid color on the other end. The capsules will be full of tiny beads. These come in doses of 5, 10, 15 (new), 20, 25 (new), and 30mg. If it is regular Adderall with no time release, they will be tablets. The most common are 10mg tabs which are blue, and 20mg tabs which are orange or sometimes pink if it is a generic substitute. There are also less common tabs that come in 5 and 30mg doses. Hope this was helpful.

What is the difference between adderll and adderall xr?

Adderall and Adderall XR are different forms of the same drug - mixed amphetamine salts. Adderall is an immediate-release form - the time that it exerts its therapeutic effects is short- over about 3 hours. Consequently you have to take several doses (usually 2 or 3) over the course of the day. Adderall XR is an extended-release form.It contains equal portions of the four active ingredients:dextroamphetamine saccharatedextroamphetamine sulfate(racemic dextro/levo-amphetamine) aspartate monohydrate(racemic dextro/levo-amphetamine) sulfateThese different salts are metabolized at different rates; therefore the extended-release form of the medication has a milder action as compared to single-salt amphetamine preparations.About 1/3 of the Adderall XR dose is released immediately, so benefits are experienced within 1 hour from taking the drug. But the remainder of the dose is released slowly over about 6-7 hours, so the drug acts over the course of the day. This makes it more convenient to use, because a patient needs to take only one dose, usually in the morning. This may be particularly important for kids, since it eliminates the old need with Adderall (immediate release) to keep some doses at school and visit the nurse at midday to take a dose.It bears noting that most stimulants used to treat ADHD have an old, immediate-release form (like Ritalin), and a newer, once-daily extended-release form (like Ritalin LA). Compared to immediate-release forms, extended-release forms may not only be more convenient, but also may result in "smoother" symptom control, with fewer ups and downs in ADHD symptoms over the course of the day. And for adults with ADHD, where being organized and sticking to a schedule may be difficult (and they don't have a parent controlling dosing), taking a dose once in the morning could make it easier to adhere to the regimen.

Can vicoprofen and Adderall be taken together?

Vicoprofen (hydrocodone and tylenol) can be taken with adderall is reasonable doses. If taken recreationally, in other words, to get "high", the risk of a fatality increases. Adderall increases desire for certain things. If you are addicted to Vicoprofen and you take a lare amounth of adderall, say (30-60mg) your first time, the desire for large doses of hydrocodone with increase severely. This is not a proven statement but has been noticed in smokers, drug addicts, and anxiety patients.

Can you mix Adderall and Klonopin?

Yes you can Mix the two as long as you stay within reasonable doses. The Klonopin is usually prescribed to help ease the crash of the adderall. But I have heard of people mixing them at the same time to create a better and less jittery effect from the adderall. Talking doses really comes down to tolerance but for a novice, I wouldn't mix more than 2 klonopins with more than 30mg Adderall. Stay within that dose range, and you will be fine.

There is no such thing as a 150mg Adderall.

Of the IR Adderall I know, the 10mg pills are blue and the 20 and 30mg pills are orange. Both have "AD" written on one side of them. They can be circular or oval shaped. Hope this helps.

Are there any withdrawal symptoms from Adderall?

Amphetamines, including Adderall, can cause withdrawal symptoms in people who stop taking them too quickly. However, Adderall withdrawal is more likely to happen when people take higher doses of Adderall than recommended.

Some withdrawal symptoms of Adderall can include extreme fatigue, depression, and changes in heart rhythm.

No, you should not take Adderall while drinking because Adderall is an upper and alcohol is a downer(or a depressant).Mixing these two can result in you having a heart attack, or cardiac arrest.

What happens when taking adderall promethazine and Valium together?

Adderall is an amphetamine and will make you more focused, energetic, motivated. Valium is a longer acting benzodiazapine and will make you feel relaxed. It will offset any jitters you have from the adderall. Promethazine( phenergan) is an antihistimine used to treat nasua. It can cause very mild sedation. Pherergan can sometimes be used to potentiate drugs. Long story short. You will have a lot of drive, focus, concentration, and energy while feeling mentally relaxed and without anxiety. Effects of the combination will depend on the doses of each medication, and whether the Adderall is XR (extended release), lasting up to 12 hours, or IR (instant release) lasting up to 4 hours

After one use of Adderall 10Mg what can happen?

Well it varies, for instance 10mg adderall immediate release onset is 30 minutes or so. The peak (t-max) is about 2-3 hours. Duration varies 7-10 hours or so. Vitamin C lowers the effects of any amphetamines. Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda) boosts these effects. In summary of the Adderall 10mg IR tablet CII; the effects can vary however side effects are much more common in higher doses or repeated doses.Single doses of Adderall IR CII range from 5mg,7.5mg,10mg,12.5mg,15mg,20mg,30mg tablets.Single doses of Adderall XR CII range from 5mg,10mg,15mg,20mg,25mg,30mg spansules.Adderall XR spansules are extended release, the 10mg XR is like taking 5mg IR twice a day within 4 hours. In the XR form there are 50% immediate release beads and 50% extended release beads. The IR beads release right away, the ER beads release four hours after dose. Onset for Adderall XR is about 30 minutes to an hour. The peak (t-max) is about 6-8 hours. Duration varies about 14-16 hours or so.Back to your question. "After one use of Adderall (immediate release) 10mg what can happen?Most common side effects at this dose with little vitamin C (see above)include:insomnia, decreased appetite, dry mouth.Less common side effects at this dose with little vitamin C (see above) include:overstimulation, restlessness, rapid heartbeat, exaggerated feelings of well-being, high blood pressure, anxiety, anorexia, weight loss. These "less common side effects" are rare at a dose as low as 10mg, now lets see what happens if you double that dose. 20 mg IR can cause more side effects.After one use of Adderall (immediate release) 20mg what can happen? Little Vitamin C (see above).Most common side effects include: Overstimulation, restlessness, loss of appetite,dry mouth, exaggerated feelings of well-being, insomnia.Less common side effects include: Dysphoria, weight loss, rapid pounding heartbeat,diarrhea, vomiting, anxiety, high blood pressure, palpation's, crash effect (rare at 20mg).Most common side effects means that 50-75% of subjects will have some of these side effects, maybe only one or two.Less common side effects means that only less than 25% of subjects will have a side effect(s).WARNING: Rare side effects (less than 5% of subjects) include: Abnormal "drug-seeking" behavior, addiction, intense euphoria, psychotic behavior, mood swings (severe), hallucinations, extreme dysphoria, paranoia, severe aggression, depression, suicidal thoughts, tiredness.DANGER: Dangerous side effects (less than .1% of subjects) at regular doses include:HEART ATTACK, SUDDEN DEATH, STROKE. These side effects occur more in drug abuse, people with heart disease, artery disease, etc.This is only a help guide please ask your doctor about this amphetamine drug.Your doctors advice is the most important. Always talk to your doctor about questions you may have. Although this information is all true, only your doctor has the best answer. So please take your doctors advice before you take this advise.
