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.

A common side effect of Adderall (Amphetamine Salts) is euphoria. Usually experienced during abuse, but often occurs when starting, or increasing dosage of this medication. Reports of dysphoric effects while on Adderall (Amphetamine Salts) are rare, but common during initial stage withdrawal ("coming down").

Fridays or Saturdays... It's crowded during the weekends. During the weekdays it is not as busy as the weekends. Weekends you will wait about an hour or more for each ride. Weekdays you would wait the most 20mins.. Any holiday during the summer, it will be crowded.

As morphine is classed as an "opioid" it can cause hallucinations during administration and after withdrawal.

The police do make arrests on weekends, all the time.BUTPolice are people, they like weekends off if possible, so a lot of long investigations have arrests made during the week and reported during the week. That's why it look like no arrests are made on weekends.

Nothing! Your baby may have slight withdrawal when he/she is born but they wont even remember it. It has been shown that opioids produce no deleterious effects during fetal development.

In my experience, my daughter's night wetting stopped almost completely when taking adderall. She stopped taking the meds during the summer & the bed wetting returned. She has woken up dry again since her first dose this school year. My daughter is 9yrs old and has wet the bed at least once per night since birth.

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.

Using Adderall may not be safe to use during pregnancy. You should always consult a doctor when considering using any drugs during pregnancy.

You can watch TV which comes into the first place on mind during weekends. Apart from that you can read good books, you can cook delicious recipes and serve your family. You can invite friends to your place and have a blast with them. So many things can be done at home during weekends.

Answeryes, it can give a false negative.However, it is an FDA category C medication. Studies have not been done in humans. However, animal studies have shown that amphetamines may increase the chance of birth defects if taken during the early months of pregnancy.In addition, overuse of amphetamines during pregnancy may increase the chances of a premature delivery and of having a baby with a low birth weight. Also, the baby may become dependent on amphetamines and experience withdrawal effects such as agitation and drowsiness.A: No, Adderall should definetly not affect a pregnancy test, however if you are in fact pregnant, you need to talk to your doctor about minimizing or gradually stopping the Adderall, because it can affect the growth of the baby.

The withdrawal bleed is the bleed you get on hormonal birth control during the week break. The drop in synthetic hormones during that week cause the uterine lining to shed in order to mimic menstruation.

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.

Your physician will have to tell you about it, and whether or not it is safe during pregnancy.

for most people, withdrawal effects peak during week 2 after quitting completely, improving thereafter. It helps to cut down slowly - be prepared for the process to take several months, and to still have a number of symptoms, especially quitting that last little bit. brain zaps were worst for me.

You seem to mean Adderall, Adderol is incorrect. Urine testing can reveal Adderall for 1 to 4 days after use. After heavy chronic use, Adderall can be detectable in urine for up to 5 to 7 days. Blood testing can detect Adderall for about 12 hours. Hair testing can reveal Adderall during 3 months, providing 1.5 inches of growth. The shorter the person's hair is, the shorter the detection period will be.
