I've read from quite a few of the members here that after awhile of taking a certain dosage of Adderall you're supposed to go through a process of taking less and less. Then, I guess, you can go back up to your normal dose, I don't know, nobody has really gone that far into it. I'm just wondering, because 60mg, although not stupidly high, is still a good dosage for a person, how long I should stay at this level before I start to take less? Will my doctor know or will I have to tell him? What was it like going from your normal dosage to a lesser one, like what were the drawbacks? If I don't do a stepping down process am I setting myself up for needing more and more? Wow, that was more than one question. I guess, if you've had experience with this how was it, and was it actually beneficial?
Hey K-lab, any time I tapered down it was slowly 10 mg at a time for a few months then another 10 mg. however I was on 60mg IR this past summer and I went from 30 mg IR to 60mg IR within 2 months. It was just too much for me personally. The side effects were too much to handle. I couldn't get into my dr at that time for 3 months. So I decided to break one in half. I was taking 30 mg in the morning then 15mg at noon. It caused a little depression but it didn't last long my attention was off slightly but I adjusted to the dose within a week to 10 days. I hope that helps answer you're question.
