Re: Ideal drug holiday frequency/duration?

I kind of skimmed through the posts on this thread, but they're all kind of long and I have a crawling 10 month old who's really fast and distracting! So if I repeat someone, sorry!

I have taken adderall for well over a decade now.... come to think of it, I've been on it a decade and a half, I think. Anyway, I have a lot of experience with it. Tolerance has never been an issue for me. In fact, I have to lower my dose after a time, because.... well, I'm not really sure why, but that's what happens.

So tolerance isn't inevitable. I've never worried about taking "holidays" from adderall, I've always taken it twice a day, 7 days a week. I only quit (cold turkey, with no withdrawl or side effects) for pregnancies and nursing (total about a year and a half with each kid, and I have four kids) and then got right back on it with no problems.

Does that help answer your original question at all?
