    Adderall XR - puts me in a bad mood

    Does anyone else get the same effects?

    When I'm on it, I'm put in a fowl mood, and I have a tendency to think negatively of things.

    It's as if I hadn't had enough sleep and just being cranky overall.

    The Adderall did disrupt my sleep, so I can't say if my moodiness is directly resulted from taking Adderall or an indirect effect for not having much sleep.

    Oh yea, and upping the dose seemed to worsen the problem. With the 10mg, things just seemed a little gloomy, but with the 15mg it seemed like I sank back into depression. I was a total ******* to my dad during the days that I've taken the 15mg.

    Anyway, can anyone else relate to this?

    Would switching to Ritalin/Concerta change this?

    I take 30MG Adderall XR and it does nothing for me. It's weird, however it does make me more positive. :-) I have to take 60MG for any sort of clarity, but 10 MG of ritilin woks really well. Go figure. How long have you been taking it?

    I was on the 10mg for a month, and though I was given 2 weeks worth of the 15mg, I couldn't get past 10 days of its use. I still have my 2 weeks worth of 20mg leftover.

    Re: Adderall XR - puts me in a bad mood

    I take XR 60mgs/day. I find that I have fewer mood swings with the XR than I had with regular Adderall, but I still have mood swings with it. They are fairly predictable and occur around the same time from when I took my meds that day so I try to plan for it and schedule around my "afternoon crash."

    It's fairly normal to have changes in mood when you introduce a drug like Adderall to your system. I'd reccomend giving it a bit more time and monitoring when the change in mood occurs and if there is anything you can do to either head it off, or take a break from people for a bit while you get through that patch.

    Of course if it is a sort of constant foul mood, that's a whole nother issue and I haven't helped you at all.
