Adderrall Ir

Adderrall Ir

So I just started taking this. How long to get used to it. Did you feel it working in your brain weird. I am 5mg twice a day. Also when do you take it and when to eat. Please advise. Thanks

I have been on adderrall for about a year now. I started out with 5mg 2 x's daily and now am up to 10mg 2x's daily. There would be no way I could work without it. It helps my fatigue and helps with focus. Otherwise I'd be a yawning idiot all day long.

I take 10mg/day. I like it for focus. My fatigue is terrible without it. I crash at 3pm though. Less mg, more times a day would be better

I didn't like Adderral! Made me shake and didn't like the way it made me feel. My neuro change me to Evekeo and I can handle it better. I always eat something before I take it. I take 5mg 3 times a day when I need to be up for a long period. Don't take it too late in the afternoon because you won't be able to go to sleep even with a sleep aid...in my experience.

Update: my fatigue has worsened. Don't know how I would even function, or even get out of bed, without Adderall. Now I take 20mg ER in the am. Plus I take an additional 5 mg regular (not ER) to get me through. There is something better available, Provigil. My insurance won't cover it bc it's not indicated for MS. I tried to appeal using documented success records the MS society provided...denied.
