... when I am taking it I feel nervous.
30 Apr 2011
Well I have only tried two different ADHD medications now, but I switched from Vyvanse to Adderall IR today. I took 2 doses today and felt so much clearer. The first one not so much, but by the second dose I did feel balanced out. After about 45min to a hour I felt it kick in, but nothing overwhelming. I actually felt more motivated and just a touch of a kick. Lasted me about 31/2 hours before I took second dose. I will say I think for each dose you take in a day will intensify the comedown feeling. The first dose I had a terrible headache but when the second one started taking effect the headache went away. After the second one wore off I felt a tad edgy and unfocused. (Kind of paced around but couldn't figure out what I wanted to do.) If you don't feel anything within about a hour, and still can't focus then it sounds like you may be on too low of a dose. If you feel to anxious, nervous or multiple side effects then it's probably too high of a dose. Also could be the wrong med for you.
