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.

If i don't feel anything off a 30mg adderall XR what will happen if I just keep taking more?

Adderall XR can take a while to kick in, especially if you have eaten right before or after taking it. I take it for narcolepsy, and I have to time my meals around every dose I take. If you just keep taking more, you will overdose. Talk to your doctor.

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

I have before. I don't feel like the adderall affected my marijuana high. Adderall is for ADHD, and marijuana can make you hype, so it kinda evens out.
