Well, i've been on both adderal and ritalin. 60mg per day is a rather high dose, and as long as your blood pressure and heart rate aren't affected to much you will be perfectly fine. It's also known that people build up an immunity to these stimulant type drugs, and your body will stop reacting to it as much after you use it for a while.
Honestly I'd say to never even take adderal or ritalin. It's to addictive, and once you start abusing it, it's realy hard to stop. I've burnt through that scrip in 2 weeks before, and have taken as much as 200mg in one day. So never abuse your medicine, and try to not use it unless you have to.
I'm hypocritical in this statement as I have a bottle of ritalin 20mg 3x a day non time release in front of me right now.
Try some of the herbal supliments and see if they are worth while. I'm new here but i'm sure there is ample information about them in the archives.
I'm in the 40 mg range and find it's increased my heart rate, so I would be nervous to go any higher. But everyone is right, it depends on the individual from what I've researched. I gage it by what the medication does to me both good and bad, and try to weight that against increasing. I'm taking less than my doctor even told me to, because I think you really have to decide as an individual--although I only mean that about taking less. I would NEVER take more than prescribed!
I have heard that a sign of taking to much adderall is that you get tired and hungry has any body else heard this or know anything about it? i have also read that being hungry and tired on amphetamines is a sign of bipolar?
thanks for any input
Is 25mg am / 25mg lunch and 10mg late afternoon too much to take of regular (generic) adderall? This is for an adult - not a child. Thanks for your input
All of it!This medication(?) contains aspertame, 40% of which is aspartic acid....it causes the symptoms it's supposed to alleviate. There's no reason to put this chemical in any medication.
But obviously doing so makes drug companies a lot of money because of just what it does.
I took this stuff for a short period of time. Because of the side affect I started researching the ingredients.
See my response under Adderall give me back my tears.

why are you taking adderall three times a day? have you considered just spacing your morning and afternoon doses a little more? one dose of adderall is supposed to last 6-8 hours. i take one around 7:30-8 in the morning and my second between 2:30-3 in the afternoon. it's a great routine for me because by the time it wears off, it's close to midnight and i don't have to think anymore!
