Not Taking Adderall on WeekendsHi, I'm a 12 year old girl. I took Adderall XR during every school week last year, and didn't on the weekend. There were no side effects for me. I know you probably won't trust me but I'm not lying or anything.
  • no side effects if you skip a day...besides the fact that you will be your silly, spontaneous, distracted self. (but this is just me)

I just wanted to add that when my doctor prescribed adderall to me, he said I wouldn't have to take it every day. If there are days where I knew I wouldn't need to focus, then he told me I can just skip it and it's not like the medication that you have to take every day.

That's entirely subjective. Seeing as Adderall contains amphetamine, withdrawal symptoms like irritability, fatigue, and overall moodiness are common, more so than the complete lack of symptoms that the 12 year old girl above describes.

How should a doctor take a patient off adderall?

Your answer: By lessening the quantity (mg) per dosage; however, as it is an amphetamine, there will be some withdrawal effects upon taking less. Yet, this is optimal compared to the severe withdrawal effects from quitting cold turkey. The answer: Typically, meth addicts (adderall is meth as well, essentially) are coerced into rehabilitation clinics for detox to be monitored during withdrawal. Of course, to get one rid of this horrible addiction. So, is the prescription that much different? Maybe to you and them in what "it" is, but to your brain, I don't think so. That being said, a better question is: Should a doctor put a patient on adderall? I don't think so. Behaviorist treatments can be a considerably more successful, natural and safe alternative, yet require extreme amounts of discipline on part of the affected (by ADHD, I presume). Keep in mind that: Amphetamine has been around and considered dangerous for hundreds of years. The US is one of only a few countries that allow it for medical use. Furthermore, the makers of adderall are unaware of future consequences, of the brain, on the affected individual. Lastly, prognostication, on part of pharmaceutical companies, about its safety, is certainly unjustified, if not uncertain, nonetheless. Be careful. They are cheap to make. Easy to sell and expensive as hell to either you or your insurance company.

How many mg of Adderall can you take?

I have been on Adderall for nine years and there really is no good answer to this question. The Physician's Desk Reference says 60 mg. per day is the maximum dose but that is not accurate. The problem is that from the first day you start taking Adderall, your brain begins the process of developing a tolerance to it. It does this by increasing the number of receptor sites on the post-synaptic side of the neural junction. As one's tolerance to Adderall increases, one needs a higher and higher dose to produce the same effects. Some people have gone to 120 mg. and even 200 mg. a day to obtain the same effects as when they started at 10 or 20 mg. per day. There are two major problems created as you keep increasing the dose of Adderall. First, the risk of significant cardiovascular consequences increases. Second, the more Adderall you take during the day, the lower you sink at night when the Adderall wears off and your body actually starts the beginning of withdrawal. At night you sink below what would be your normal mental levels. Therefore, in the morning, it will take longer for the Adderall to bring you to a satisfactory performance level because it has to take you from the valley it brought you into at night, to your normal performance level, and than to a satisfactory performance level. In short, the higher the dose, the deeper is the valley at night; the deeper the valley, the longer it will take in the morning it will take before a satisfactory performance level is reached.
