Adderall causing fatigue

Has anyone else experienced fatigue while taking adderall? It seems to make me very tired. I don't usually take it on the weekends so I know what it feels like to have it both in and out of my system. It's getting to the point where I don't even want to take it anymore but then there are the consequences of not taking it. I've tried Ritalin but doesn't work well with my chemistry. It's weird because before going caffeine-free, I noticed caffeine also made me tired....not more alert like it does for most people.

Re: Adderall causing fatigue

If the Adderall is making you tired you may be on too high of a dose, you may want to try a lower dose to see how it works with your system before giving up on it, it also comes in short acting and extended release forms...

I had tried Adderall in the past, both the quick-release and the XR forms. It was not the drug for me, irregardless of dose my depression was severly aggravated. Be sure you mention your side effects to your Dr, Good Luck.
