... I've been on this dosage for about 5 days. I take one capsule every morning. I've noticed a bit of slight swelling in my lymph nodes on the left side of my neck. I've been having trouble sleeping, and it makes me quite drowsy throughout the day when I take it . I was wondering. If I stop using it for a while will my nodes heal? If so, after they have healed could I start taking it again or will it still have the same affect on my nodes? Also would it make a difference for my nodes, drowsiness, and trouble sleeping to take Adderall IR. I also heard that feeling drowsy from taking adderall is due to, too low of a dose, is this true? Or should I just change my medication all together? Thanks for reading. All answers appreciated!
Hi there Mase99. The lymph node swelling can be associated with Adderall use but indirectly. When I was on the XR I experienced swelling in my right lymph node but now that im on the D-amphetamine salts it doesn't ever happen. The Dr told me it varies by individual was because of the dehydration that is caused by Adderall. Ppl are dehydrating long before the show symptoms so make sure you are drinking plenty of water & even add an electrolyte replacement -like powerade- in the warmer months. My advice though is talk to your Dr, make him aware of the lymph node swelling & follow Dr orders. Good luck :0)
The somnolence issue is one that many of us face. I've been researching to try to find the exact cause and mechanism for this phenomena in preparation to answer your question and I haven't found anything except these few points: 1) Occasional somnolence is frequent among Adderall patients while they are in the initial stages of treatment. 2) It is a good sign that you were properly diagnosed as most people who take it recreationally do not report sleepiness. 3) It could be a sign that your dose isn't high enough and you and your doctor need to work together to find one that is right for you.
