I am a 25 year old female who was just recently diagnosed as ADD. I was seeeking treatment for depression and this new doc said I was ADD too. I have a history of substace abuse, impulsivity, bad relationships, poor organization, and irritability. Been on adderall for a week and a half, started with a half a pill twice a day for two days then a whole pill twice a day. My boyfriend has remarked that I am a much better driver (no road rage and speeding) and i am less cranky and generally in a better mood. At first as I was getting used to the doses and stuff I knew when I had too much (anxious, fidgety). Now I cant sleep at night and after my dose wears off I am very irritable and I cant concentrate on any of the racing thoughts in my head. I am wondering if I am doing something wrong or if maybe this is triggering some sort of mania in me. I was never diagnosed as bipolar or anything, but some anti-depressants cause me to speed up unnaturally. I dont know if my body is just getting used to the medication, or if I am always going to feel strung out like I used to when I did cocaine all the time. Please help.
