My husband has been on Aderall for about 3 weeks now. He has had drug addiction for years. He has always said that "ADD/ADHD" didn't exist. he was in dinal! Now he thinks maybe that's what's wrong with him but not totally convinced. He is use to the speeding part of thins or Lorcets. this Aderall allows him to focus and has helped his depression and stress. Which as far as us as a family it has helped tremendously. But we own a refrigeration business (hince stress and depression) and sometimes the calls are extreme emergencies. So should he stay on the aderall or does anybody think he should change to maybe the XR or try something different. We have no experience in ADHA meds. He just has been diagnosed with this (which I have swore for years that I thought he had it!) I know it may be a process of elimination but this aderall is diffently hurting in the bedroom! Can somebody give me some kind of suggestion? Thank you so much. I really want a direct answer but if someone has something more to add I'm setting it to starting a conversation. May God bless you and your loved ones!
I'm 32 and I started taking adderall because my ex wanted me to be able to stay awake after we'd go drinking all night long. And it does help you focus, it's not much more than legalized speed. But you said he was diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and depression I don't know what he takes for his depression but I have been on Prozac for two to three weeks now and I'm slowly noticing that I am taking less adderall every day. My physc. explained to me that she really didn't like putting me on both because they both give you energy. She was right about that. The worst side effect I have noticed is that I don't sleep much at night. The last three nights I've gotten maybe six hours of sleep if you add them all together. But it has dropped my sex drive down a little and that's a good thing especially now that I'm single again. Hope that helps you some and god bless you and yours.
