Re: riddlin addication

Nope, no one can help except the person that is abusing it.
Nothing anyone here can say or do will affect that, and you can't do it for her.
Perhaps you should send her the link to this board. If she wants help and support she will have to do it herself.

Re: riddlin addication

Hey norat I think I took that right lol. I recognize you from lurking at the ADD boards. I am glad you are over here because you have a lot of knowledge. I didn't take any stimulant for over 24hrs and the only problem was I couldn't keep my eyes open for any length of time. Any insight how long this would last if I stayed off of them Thanks Carly

Re: riddlin addication

I'm not sure what you mean carly so I'll answer based on my guess. Once you stop stimulants (and assuming you did not use them as directed) a couple problems can arise

1.) Your tired from being wired.
2.) You're brain is trying to learn how to work without stimulants
3.) In the case of Ritalin you are suffering rebound. (hangover)
4.) Stimulant use caused dehydration, or completely zapp your body of nutrients (magnesium, Zinc or B Vitamins)

Re: riddlin addication

Hi norat Thanks for the infomation.I didn't know stimulants caused dehydration. I know I am always thirsty but I was even before taking stimulants.I try to drink a lot of fluids. I also didn't know they zapped nutrients tho I had low pottasium a while back. I am taking cymbalta a new antidepressant. It is suppossed to help opium cravings which I don't have a problem with but it is helping me stick more to my prescribed dose of adderall. I was taking ritilin when the adderall ran out.My My first question was if I stopped taking stimulants all together about how long before would the severe fatigue go away Thanks a lot Carly

Re: riddlin addication

About 2 days I would think. Faster with exercise (sweating) and lots of water. Adderall can remain in your system for up to 60 hours, but our bodies can make a quick recovery if they have to. Once you're sure you have had enough sleep get the blood pumping some way. These are the things I use:

Exercise and sauna.
Loud fast music (I'm a house head)
Cleaning the house or doing a mindless job like painting or mowing. (at which point the adderall in my system kicks back in, producing a more usable speed effect, but also getting used up in the process)

Magnesium/zinc supplement
B-Complex Supplement
Multi Vitamin
Good food like rice and fish (try to avoid white bread and sugar)
Small serving of Beer at night (is there anything beer can't do?)

I'm not sure how I would respond on an anti-depressant,
