... 10mg one time a day. My doctor told me that it would take a few weeks to see the full effects of the medicine and that we would more than likely have to adjust it. I would take my med every morning before school or work and it helped beautifully until about 10-11am and then I would get extremely sleepy and scatter brained, like I normally feel without before I started taking adderall. After about a week and a half I decided to see what if taking a second dose around 11am would help and it completely solved the problem. I had enough energy to get through my day and I stayed focused as I did this! I know it sounds dumb but this is a big breakthrough for me! I have been suffering with my symptoms for as long as I can remember and to finally have something to help is a huge relief! I called and made an appointment to discuss all of this with my doctor but I an afraid of getting in trouble for taking a second dose. I don't want her to get the wrong idea and think I just want more drugs because that is not the case at all. I'm unsure how to ask her, I'm afraid she will just want to up the mg and that is not at all what I want to do. Does anyone have any advice?
