It will give the effect of being under the influence of Amphetamine, also known as speed. I recommend you do not attempt an ADHD medication if not diagnosed with it by a Licensed professional.
Part two: Not only that, but you may become anemic and dramatically underweight, can approach death as a small child, and become depressed (personal experience from improper diagnosis of asperger's).
I have adult ADHD and I once had a roommate that did a ridiculous thing. She did a self-diagnosis and determined that she had ADHD. She stole around twenty of my Ritalin from the cabinet that I place my medication in. She left to go camping and decided that she would take the amount that had been prescribed by my doctor for me. Well, to make a long story short, she ended up in the emergency room. She started to display symptoms of a heart attack. I strongly advise individuals that think that they might have ADHD to consult with a specialist that will make a well researched diagnosis. I believe some people out there "wish" they had ADHD. I will be fifty one in a couple of weeks and have had ADHD every since I can remember. Having ADHD presents many challenges in a person's life. Individuals have to learn compensatory skills to overcome many of the obstacles that they face. I have encountered many "normal" people who greatly misunderstand me. I have even been called "weird" by neighbors, friends, and colleagues. Despite, all of this, I went to college. I have a Bachelors in Science (Magna cum Laude) and a Masters of Education (Summa cum Laude) degree in the field of special education. I taught severely disturbed children for twenty-eight years. I have retired from teaching and am currently enrolled in a Solar Photovoltaic program. Whenever I become discouraged I think about a quote that Montel Williams made at the beginning of his career: "Believe to Achieve."
So in short, if you're not diagnosed with ADHD, there's no reason to take such medication.
yes you can. just be careful because the two work together and may increase the risk of CNS depression and psychomotor impairment. make sure you don't drive or do anything like that! consider reducing dosage or the oxy too
I have been taking Oxycontin 90 mg twice a day and 800mg skelaxin as needed for 11 years and the skelaxin is very well tolerated.
Its the only muscle relaxer i could take that doesn't make me lethargic. flexerall knocks me right out,I can only take half of the 10 mg tab and I still am groggy in the morning.
1. Seizures w/Valproic 2. Sleep Disorder w/Benadryl
Now we find ourselves with a seizure-free, full-night sleeping child that has a 5-10 second attention span. I'll let you know how the Strattera works.
you must be the one to sound the alarm! If your doctor dismisses your concerns, you
are wise to get a second opinion...or third, fourth...whatever it takes until you and
your child are satisfied. Most physicians want happy patients and caregivers. They are human and can only make determinations based on the limited information they have when deciding what may work. Many times, it is "trial and error." Until optimal
dosage(s) and choices of medication(s) are reached, the control issues are difficult
for the family as well as the physician. Keep really good records: make a log of your
observations of your child (including teachers' and others' observations) and how the
symptoms relate to the time of day, how long after administration of the medication,
and your own personal rating scale. Your intuition and "red flag alarms" need to be
trusted. The more objective data you can offer to the physician by phone and during
office visits, the faster you will get the results you need. When others comment about the direction you have chosen for your child, whether "natural" or with FDA approved medications, remember that you are the boss and you "know best." Then, give their criticisms the few minutes they deserve and forget about them. They do not walk in your shoes. Any time you or your children experience a side effect from any medication, you are encouraged to call the FDA at: 1-800-FDA-1088.
Were you previously using an amphetamines or cocaine? If so, it is important to talk to your doctor about your use of substances, why you used, how much you used. Adderall is a controlled substance and amphetamines have a well-documented history of abuse. But, you should always be honest so you can be prescribed what is best, not what you may want. It is fine to mention Adderall and/or Dexedrine along with your concerns but don't walk into the doctor's office thinking to yourself "I want Adderall," think "I want to get better." When you do that your treatment will be much better.
It is also important to note that legally a doctor may prescribe controlled substances to people with a known history of illegal substance use, abuse, dependency, and addiction. Medical associations including The American Academy of Pediatrics, The American Psychiatric Association, The American Medical Association, and many other medical boards and agencies around the world clearly indicate that stimulant medications (amphetamines and methylphenidate) can be used in people with a history of substance abuse successfully.
Provigil (modafinil) is a non-amphetamine stimulant with significantly fewer psychotropic effects of amphetamines has been successfully used in treating some cases of ADHD, typically refractory cases. Like Wellbutrin (bupropion) is not FDA approved but it may be a good option for some people, including those with a history of substance abuse. It is a schedule IV controlled substance in The United States. Valium (diazepam), Darvocet/Darvon (propoxyphene), Miltown (meprobamate), chloral hydrate, Ambien (zolpidem), Adipex-P (phentermine) are examples of other schedule IV drugs. Most other nations do not list Provigil as a controlled substance.
Here is more information from Wiki s contributors:
When I first was diagnosed with ADHD about two months ago my doctor asked me if I'd used Ritalin (methylphenidate) as a study aid prior to, and also what effects it had; I told him that I'd not used Ritalin, but had used Adderall and proceeded to explain the effects I'd noticed as honestly as I could recall. He was in no way upset, angry, or condemning of this; he proceeded to go ahead and put me on Adderall since he felt, given my past experiences as I'd recounted to him, it would be an effective course of action.
It is common that people try Adderall or Ritalin and find many symptoms they once had disappear. Often people try to get treatment only after a friend gave them a pill. But most people focus better on stimulants so it can be hard to determine if the reaction was due to treating ADHD or the stimulating nature of amphetamines. And doctors, especially psychiatrists, greatly appreciate honesty since they need the big picture and the tiny fragments.
My husband's doctor knew he had a history of substance abuse and first prescribed him Strattera (atomoxetine), and it didn't work so she prescribed amphetamines. Explain to your doctor why you tried to self medicate. If you do have a history of amphetamine abuse and dependence and you believe that you will end up abusing stimulant medications express these concerns to your doctor and ask about non-addictive drugs like Strattera (atomoxetine) or Wellbutrin (bupropion), which is not approved for ADHD and is used off-label.
Treatment of ADHD with legally prescribed stimulants has indicated a significantly reduced chance of substance abuse and behavioral problems in people with ADHD.
Sometimes, it's only after someone experiences an atypical reaction to an illegal drug that they are correctly diagnosed with ADHD. If you have used a "street" stimulant such as methamphetamine and experience a calming effect rather than the euphoria your friends describe, there is a possibility you could have ADHD but only a doctor can make a diagnosis.
Although some people may use a "street" drug and that leads them to an ADHD diagnosis however more often they just continue using the drugs illegally.
Studies have shown that people with ADHD, bipolar, and other psychiatric disorders have higher rates of substance abuse. Just because you've used drugs in the past doesn't mean you can't get the proper treatment, which may or may not include stimulant medications.
Starting doses of prescription amphetamines and methylphenidate.
Note some of these drugs are not available in all countries and guidelines vary by country. These are US and Canadian guidelines. All "maximum" doses are guidelines and doctors may prescribe larger amounts ("off label use") as they see fit. These are the doses for ADHD and do not include guidelines for narcolepsy, a sleeping disorder many of these drugs are approved for which may require larger doses.

Most countries abide by and have incorporated The Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs of 1961 and The Convention on Psychotropic Substances of 1971 into their own laws.
Adderall is a racemic mixture of levoamphetamine and dextroamphetamine, approximately ¾ of Adderall is dextroamphetamine and ¼ is levoamphetamine. The purest "speed" is dextroamphetamine, found in Adderall and found in Dexedrine, which is 100% dextroamphetamine. Although it may be technically valid to call Adderall or Dexedrine "speed" there is a subtle but significant difference, street "speed" is not pharmaceutical grade medication. As a result there are no contaminants and the focus of a pharmaceutical is on the effect it has in helping a problem, not getting someone high.
It is also critical to remember that nearly all of the most dangerous drugs are medically used. Heroin for example is just a bullet train for morphine, all heroin does is enter the brain rapidly and then heroin is rapidly metabolized into morphine (and two other less significant active metabolites). So as much as heroin is despised it is basically morphine and several controlled, double blind studies have shown an addict can't tell the difference from IV heroin and IV morphine.
My point being that just because many of these stimulants are "speed" does not say anything real about the drug, it simply feeds on mass hysteria.
Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is a prodrug meaning that it does not have any pharmacologic activity until it is metabolized into its active metabolite, dextroamphetamine. Originally Shire, a British pharmaceutical company, claimed that the abuse potential of Vyvanse is much lower than other amphetamines however The FDA and DEA were not convinced and it has been placed under schedule II in The United States. For the most part it has only been post-marketing research that has definitively shown snorting or injecting can cause a high. Having said that, compared to any other amphetamine or methylphenidate drugs, it does have a significantly lower abuse liability.
Yes you may take HCG since there is no interaction. That said, do not take appetite suppressants with Adderall since they are both stimulants.
About 6-12 hours depending on your body
Yes. Though it is best to follow your prescription, 40 mgs of Adderall is only 10 mgs higher than the maximum pill dosage of 30 mgs. 40 will not hurt you, just slightly intensifying the effects. As with any dose of Adderall, it should be taken early in the day.
if your body is able to handle the caffeine, if your sensitive to caffeine then I would not mix them because you could have heart arythmias, and raise your blood pressure
Yes because you get a high from Adderall. It puts you in a good mood when your at your high and your in a bad mood when u have your low. it happens to me everyday
I normally inject myself with Neurobion whenever my tongue shows the signs of geographical tongue. At that stage I am normally very tired and struggle with feelings of depression and fatigue. The very next day after a shot of neurobion, I can feel my strenght coming back and a few days later there is no stop to my energy levels.
This is what it's made of:
Converts carbohydrates, fatty acids and amino acids into energy. Promotes healthy nerves. May improve mood. Strengthens the heart.
Forms red blood cells, helps cells to make proteins, manufactures neurotransmitters such as serotonin and releases stored forms of energy. Helps to prevent cardiovascular disease and strokes. Helps to lift depression. Eases insomnia. Treats carpal tunnel syndrome. May lessen PMS symptoms.
Essential for cell replication and important for red blood cell production. Prevents anaemia. Helps to prevent depression. Reduces nerve pain, numbness and tingling. Lowers the risk of heart disease.
SI Each ampoule of 3 ml contains: Vitamin B1 100mg, Vitamin B6 100mg, Vitamin B12 1000 mg.
normally it could be taken one ampoule daily after severe conditions go away
Yes. I take adderall xr 40 mg for ADHD and .5 alprazolam twice a day for anxiety but rarely need it.
Self-medicating Valium and Adderall is probably a bad idea. However, there are many good reasons that a doctor may prescribe both medications. Bear in mind that Valium (Diazepam) can be used to treat (among other things):
Benzodiazapine class meds created a revolution in pharmacology, especiially due to the wide spectrum of possible uses, and significantly lowered M&M stats by replacing drugs like barbituates.
In this case, I wouldn't write this combination off as a bad idea without considering the entire picture.Alternate Anwer:This isn't a bad idea at all. What the first person who answered is thinking is that they are two opposites, and would create a sort of speedball affect, but this is not true [First answer removed in this version]. Adderall does indeed speed up your mind and thoughts, making you focus much better, however if you suffer from anxiety, Adderall can make this much worse. The best solution for anxiety is a benzo, like Valium, even though I prefer Xanax, to counter act the anxiety. Benzo's do Not slow down your thoughts as much as they simply make your more relaxed. I am currently prescribed 30mg XR once a day, 10mg IR in the afternoon, and 1mg Kpins twice a day by my doctor and they work perfectly together and I Do indeed recommend it. Alternate Answer:I am prescribed 60mgs Adderall IR daily and was just recently prescribed 10mg of Valium by the same doctor. I PERSONALLY haven't experienced any bad side affects, and agree that it does help with anxiety, although I have taken other Benzo's that have worked better for anxiety. Clarification:I noted that self-medicating was a bad idea. Note that these two medications are not contraindicative. I stand by this. Both these medications require a prescription, and adminstration should be monitored by a doctor. Alternative AnswerI take 40mg of Adderal a day and have back muscle issues which I take Valium for. its helfpful and I havn't noticed any problems. I do really suggest though, that you talk with your doctors about what you specifically need to think about concerning this combo.
$0.25 seriously, its only useful to university students (if that's what your plan is) if you can sell them your entire prescription.
The lethal dose of potassium or sodium cyanide is 200 to 300 mg and of hydrocyanic acid is 50 mg. Effects begin within seconds of inhalation and within 30 min of ingestion.
Now why you would want to know this, I'm unsure. Be safe.
Short answer: no. Adderall is comprised of amphetamine salts. "Salts" being the operative word, as that means they are good for dissolving in liquid (water, 96% alcohol, etc.) and not good for smoking. To protect your lungs, it is highly dis-recommended that you smoke salts, esepecially Adderall, which is mixed with not just amphetamine salts, but also fillers and dyes, none of which would be fun to smoke. You would either stop smoking before effects kicked in, or if you persisted in smoking, you would be in quite a bit of pain. The "high" from smoking would be a bitter and minor victory. So, then, is it theoretically possible to smoke Adderall painlessly? Perhaps. A preparation could be made in which amphetamine salts were dissolved in a very soluble liquid at a certain ratio. The salts would then need to be converted to their respective bases, then re-extracted via another liquid, which would then need to be evaporated. This procedure is known as an "acid-base extraction", and should not be attempted without chemistry experience, as all of the chemicals necessary are hazardous, and very precisce instrumentation would be required. Unfortunately, in the end, the amount of amphetamine base which could theoretically be retrieved would be so small that the difficulty of preparing it would be considered an entire waste, so while it is theoretically possible, it is definitely not practical.
Yes it does, ever since I have been taking adderall I notice back pains, take tylonel.
Read on for more information from Wiki s contributors:
Just as a reference point, I am a 22 year old college student and at 165lbs and I take 20mg doses of non-extended release Adderall, which has a very strong effect on me. Though it isn't "prescribed by weight," it's still a stimulant. Yes, it will react differently in all people, so you can't go strictly by weight, but obviously if you give an 88lb twelve year old two cups of coffee, it's going to be way different than if you give a 165lb person 2 cups of coffee. There are exceptions, and of course the severity of ADD symptoms may warrant a large dose, but 20mg of narcotics is a lot! So definitely work from the smallest dose up.
I'm not a doctor but I called Adderall about their dosage for mg. They do not go by weight. Thre is a chart they follow. My daughter is 10-years-old and weights 90 pounds. We just changed her Adderall XR from 20 mg to 25 mg, but then the doctor decided on 30 mg. I decided it should be more than 25, but less than 30 mg, so I open her pills and give her less than 30 mg. I don't give it to her on weekends, either. My other daughter takes Concerta 54 mg. and needs it all the time. Adderall XR made her depressed. Always talk with your doctor about your child's medications
How do you guys sleep at night??? I am 22 years old and I work full time and am taking 3 night classes. I am on 10 mg not extended release and I am still awake doing school work (psychology, that hpw I cam across this) I would just like to say that 20mg of XR is way to much for a 12 year girl plus she is going through puberty and this combination could really bring on bulemia, addiction, and other bad influences. I am no doctor, but I was prescribed to 20 XR adderall at 13 It helped, but not as much as it helped me lose weight, I grew an addiction to it and became bulemic because when it wore off I would be starving so I would stuff and barf. Then I picked up a ciggrette habit because I like the way i felt when smoking on adderral and it helped my throw up. I am just placing my concern. Like i said before Im no doctor and the truth is everyone is diffrent. Please just watch for her weight change, make sure she is busy with good activity so that she is not taught bad influences like cigrettes. i am fine now and I do not smoke cigerretes, but I would have been better off without it
a survey of U.S. middle schools, grades 6-8, found that one in eight students were experimenting with some form of tobacco such as cigrettes, cigars, and chewing tobacco. -Visualizing Pschology - Carpenter, Siri and Huffman, Keri

Eating Disorders affect up to 24 million Americans and 70 million individuals worldwide.

its not unusual.
I wouldn't recomend it but i haven't seen her to be sure myself, it is between the doctor and the girl on the dose of the drug and cannot be told by weight and age. But in my opinion, i wouldn't give her that much.
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.
No, you should not drink Grapefruit juice while on adderall, or any other juices high in Vit. C. Although it is safe and won't hurt you at all, you may start to feel bad because it will lower the affects of the Adderall.
Adderall, Dexedrine, and Dextrostat, and couple others can all be "washed out" of your system if you drink or eat any acidic juice or fruit. It alters the pH balance of your stomach and causes the Adderall to be excreted through your urine much faster than it normally would.
Taking Adderall or Dexedrine and then drinking Orange juice basically cancels out much or most medication benefit. However, if you ever want to cancel out medication-induced side effects like insomnia or a headache, then now you know what to do.
Juices with high acidity:
and a few others
Alkaline foods have the opposite effect.
Well actually, when we EAT/metabolize grapefruit, it has a significant ALKALIZING effect. They have a PRAL value of around - 6 and although they are citrus fruits and therefore acidic in their native form, the pH of their "ash" (when they have been metabolized by the body) classifies it ( tomatoes too, for example) as an alkalizing food.
THe amphetamines - especially absent Adderall - can be extremely dangerous. The only other member of the family (other than dextroamphetamine and amphetamine) marketed in the US is literally the last amphetamine left standing: methamphetamine HCl, once (and still) marketed here by Abbot Labs as Desoxyn and by what was then Burroughs-Wellcome as Methedrine. There were injectable dosage forms of Methedrine available that almost killed many people who received a "lift" out of the torpor of recovering from anaesthesia with a shot of Methedrine.
Much more so than Adderall will EVER be, Dextrostat and Dexedrine are subject to misuse, abuse and addiction, to say nothing of wholesale diversion if prescribed to adolescents.This has to do with the various d- and -dl-amphetamines salts in Adderall. Long story short, if too take more than you're supposed to, the nasty side effects residing in the dl- part of the molecule usually ensures patients won't make the same mistake twice.
Why in the world would I ask any doctor write for amphetamines on MY (s patient's) Narcolepsy is pretty damned rare. Occasionally we use Dexedrine in 5-15mg/day in order to augment multiple drug therapy in patients whose depression has been refractory to other pharmacological treatment. It can be a very safe drug and, to this day, a helpful drug to psychiatrists. However, this is one case where the feds are NOt overreacting. A competent neurologist or psychiatrist really is the only type of physician that I believe should write for Dexedrine or Dextrostat, even though all of us whose Controlled Substance prescriptive privilege has not been limited by the DEA!!
This is kindly individual, regular users of Adderall (daily user) should not suddenly stop taking Adderall without first talking with the prescribing doctor. It's not something that one should do with ANY medication. Not recommended by any doctor, you should really be under doctors care when decreasing your dose. Making sure that your body is adjusting well. Since we are all different, react different, adjust different this is between patient and doctor.
Each State may have it's own laws, however there was a federal convention which set out some uniform drug laws that State's could adopt and use as they saw fit. Most State's seem to be using laws mostly or entirely based upon that convention. Here is the MICHIGAN take on the adderall, and it's a pretty safe bet that it is similar to most other states.
333.7403(2)(e) A prescription form is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for not more than 1 year or a fine of not more than $1,000.00, or both.
If you read the entire statute (1) sets out that you shouldn't have a drug in your possession. (2) sets out the different penalties for different drugs. So (2)(a) is for narcotic drugs (which are only opiates (such as heroin) under a legal definition) and cocoa leaves (cocaine) get you into this category, which carries some pretty hefty penalties depending on how many grams you have. (2)(b) carves out a spot for having meth and one other drug that I didn't bother looking at because it wasn't in the schedule II listings for drugs, so it doesn't apply to adderall. This section also provides the penalties for any drugs not described in 2,c,d or e. (2)(c) list some drugs, non of which are amphetamine (adderall). (2)(d) is for marijuana and you have 2(e) at the top, which is the penalty for adderall.
I currently take 80mg straterra, 70mg vyvanse (a speed-derived drug like adderall), and 10mg lexapro (an ssri like paxil, luvox, etc) and it is working great!
before I started vyvanse, I was taking straterra with lexapro and adderall: about 40 mg of adderall daily.
taking too much adderall caused me to be very anxious, self-conscious, and almost paranoid. when I reduced adderall to about 20 mg/day, as well as when I switched over to vyvanse, things smoothed out much better.
i should add that I was smoking a decent amount of medical marijuana at for most of this period too, which probably increased the paranoia....
I have since stopped the pot, and things are very smooth.
Just my personal experience, your results may vary, but whatever you do, be very cafeful with adderall!!! I had a mild psychotic episode where I thought everyone was out to get me, I couldn't leave home, and I am a "normal" person!
be safe. these are tools, not toys.
I am on 40mg of Srattera (once a day), 30mg of Adderall and 37.5mg of Paxil. I haven't noticed any unusual side effects, but that is just my own experience. Every individual is unique in their response to certain medications.
The answer is YES!!! The person asked a yes or no question. They didn't ask for your medical history.
