Hello, I'm a college student. I am 20. Without Adderall I would fail most classes. Thank you.

AnswerI have not taken it long but I did watch the super cool true life on MTV about taking adderall and from what they said the good effects are clearly better grades and more ease in normal every day tasks. But they also said it can cause OCD like behaviors. For me it makes me eat almost half as much as I use to. As a fat kid, I think that rocks but if you have a child who you think may have an eating disorder this is not the stuff for them. Its speed so it really knocks me out at the end of the day. If I drink too much caffene I feel like im about to have a heart attack and I get dizzy pretty easily. ANSWER:when I take my adderall i become very fixated on certain things - i frequently wash my hands and if taken in the evening i am up all night long....I am certainly more productive! but it causes me to have OCD like effects and there is also increased energy (Adderall is also prescribed for people with Narcolepsy). DECREASED APPETITE IS A BIG ONE TOO! you will also think much deeper into things... oh and also i become dehydrated with a constant dry mouth so I Drink Water In Excess. Adderall also causes me to experience irritability and anxiety(NERVOUSNESS) . and increased heart rate.

but overall-

---in 9th grade i used adderall....Straight A's with no Suspensions or referalls!

10th grade (NO MEDICATION) - I only passed 2 out of my 8 classes for the year(one of them being Gym) the Principal's office everyday - class cuts, skipping school, classroom distruptions, and basically i was just a nonstop CLASS CLOWN, and i had no ambitions at all. (I will note that I had a lot of fun though being medication free)-but was not worth all the trouble and problems, looking back on the past.
