: I have just started taking Adderall and am building up to a dose that works for me. Currently on 10 mg in the morning but I don't feel any different. I do not have hyperactivity, but from things I read it should be easier to stay on a task and thoughts should not flit around so much. I want to hear from real people! I know it can take awhile to find the right medication and dosage, but I want it now!!! LOL
: Please tell me your experiences.
I have, through trial and error, found that if I take 20 mg first thing in the morning and then 10 mg around 2:00 in the afternoon, I can concentrate well and not have the difficulty falling asleep. My experience after being diagnosed and, reluctantly, taking the prescribed medication, was that all the background noise I have always heard quieted down and I could focus on one note. I can sit at my desk and not be distracted by every phone call down the hall or every movement happening around me. Be careful that you eat regular meals, though, as I can go most of the day and realize I missed lunch because I was not at all hungry. Good luck!
