Cold Turkey- Adderall
I'm on my 5th day of stopping adderall cold turkey. I have 2 kids and i have 1 on the way (reason why i had to stop ) I started because i was always so tired and non motivated. Taking it made all that change.. It made me feel like superwoman.. I was very motivated. But i had to keep taking them because the crash was so bad.. got irritable, tired, lazy. Anyway long story short. Has anyone else cut adderall cold turkey. how long will i feel so frigging horrible?

Hello notaswe and welcome to the boards.

Have you brought this to the attention of your prescribing physician? He/she is familiar with your medical history and will be able to chart a course of recovery for you.

The fact that you are pregnant and are going this route should definitely be discussed with your obstetrician ASAP, as tests will need to be performed.

Please understand that anything you ingest into your system also affects your unborn child.

The sooner you do this,the better;for all concerned.
