I've always wanted to ask questions on here but was afraid of asking dumb questions.
I've been on 10mg 2x a day for a little over a year now. I'm fine when I take it because I can focus and stay on top of things. The 10 has been wearing off so fast and its very frustrating
I could be around people when I first take it and engage in conversation, laugh and enjoy myself but when its wearing off, I dont want to speak to anyone and nothing is funny. I've had to pull the fake laugh off quite a few times. I get very angry too. Then I have to wait to take my next one and it happens all over again. I am also on Celexa to help with my major mood swings. Any thoughts, advice or help would be great.
You probably have a tolerance to the 10mg now, I would ask your doc to increase your dosage
And even with the extended release version you can can still have some mood swings when it wears off, and before the next dose starts.

I used to have a similar issue with irritability. Tolerance with amphetamines goes up rather quickly. So, in a way you are dealing with withdrawals.
If you don't like upping your dose, I would start taking weekends off. Try to loose some of your tolerance to the drug. It could actually take, from what I understand" weeks or more to get back to the tolerance you had a year ago.
As for irritability. I found that a Cal-Mag solution worked wonders form me.
