Does it not have that "sense of well being" feeling anymore? You may have developed a tolerance to this dose. It's common to need to have to adjust the dose of Adderall. A person will become tolerant to one MG amount and need a higher dose to achieve the same level of therapy. There is a point when the medical professional your seeing will decide with your help whether this is a medication that is working for you. Talk with your doctor. You may also want to try taking "holidays," as described in the PI sheet included with Adderall XR prescriptions. Essentially, a drug holiday entails taking a few days off from the medication, usually weekly or bi-weekly, in order to allow your body to lose some of the tolerance that it naturally builds over time to the effects of the drug. Before trying this, discuss it at length and in detail with your physician. He or she should be familiar with the concept and, if they are a good doctor, will be able to help you find the solution to the problem one way or the other.

Check your diet as well. Very acidic things like OJ and grapefruit juice can flush Adderall away! Also (recent personal experience) FOR ME... and perhaps others.....the anti-inflamitory drug Naproxin totally ruins the benefits of my Adderall, probably because of the acid increace:( No more Naproxin for me and I am going to tell my Dr. to warn other people too!

Can strong a dose of adderall xr make you spacey?

Yes. Sometimes Adderall will cause you to focus so much that you become fixated on insignificant details. This will actually hinder your productivity and make you feel a little "spacy." Avoid caffeine and any other stimulants when taking Adderall. These things are not a good mix with Adderall and can make your brain feel numb rather than clear and efficient.

Can Adderall be taken with Benadryl or sinus meds?

The combination of Dextroamphetamine salts in adderall will not interact with benadryl. The benadryl will "cancel out" the effects of the Adderall. This is a lie! I took ONE 30mg adderall around 8:30pm on Thursday night, after being awake until 3am that night i took 4 benadryl in hopes of getting some sleep.. the benadryl never worked, and now it Saturday and I have YET to get even 5 minutes of sleep. I feel terrible... I don't recommend mixing the two to anyone!

What happens if you take 30mg of adderall?

Probably nothing. Do you have a prescription for Adderall? If you have ADD, then it will make you feel more calm and help you focus on completing your task. If you don't have ADD, then it will make your heart race and you won't be able to sit still. I take 30 milligrams twice a day and I know that it's on the high end of the amount that a doctor would prescribe.

Does Adderall make you depressed?

yes it can....when you take adderall youre taking a collection of amphetamines, which floods the chemical dopamine in your brain. so youll get the warm feeling, sweat maybe and of course the concentration that adderall is intetended for, but when it begins to wear off many people experience "crashing" which is when you no longer feel euphoric and full of energy, sometimes people get the chills or just mentally feel crappy...taking adderall, every day in any amount can definitely lead to some depression. remember its highly addictive, if you feel down, depressed or have physical illness later in the day after having taken adderall i would suggest stopping use for a few days and you will feel better. do research, google adderall depression, many people experience it

How long does 30mg adderall xr last?

around 6 hrs of sought effect, so have a good slug of pepto/couple tbsp of bicarb in water (helps you absorb more of the drug), wait 5, take said 30mg adderall xr with seltzer/fizzy drink (same positive effect on absorption) hour to come up while you can tweedle your fingers, then everything'll start to feel really "worth it" and productive. you'll feel like this for 6-8 hrs and then as it tapers, you may still feel the "go" in your body but in your head might become moody or depressed. IMO it's good to have something to come down with, and if you remember to eat, you'll sleep off the whole thing and be no worse for wear :)

Does Adderall affect a breathalyzer test?

No; Adderall will not change the way a breathalyzer test is registered. Adderall can cause a person intoxicated to feel less so, but the test will register the amount of alcohol in your breath accurately. You may feel more sober, but you will not be legally and according to the test.
