I am prescribed adderall 10 mg 3x a day and .5 Xanax as needed. I usually take the Xanax for sleep. I've been on both for 6 months. I was on XR adderall, but I found it didn't last very long. Lately, I've been very iterated during the day, so I've been taking my Xanax here and there. I've found I feel much better and almost energetic. The adderall, I find makes me tired, and that's why I haven't been taking my Xanax, because that usually knocks me out. I can literally take an adderall and go to sleep, has this happened to anyone? Or any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!
I just weaned myself off Adderall 10 mg. 3xday by lowering it down by 5 mg. every 7-10 days. I too found it made me really TIRED.
You DID NOT say how long you have been on the Adderall.
If you have been on it for 6-12 months at 10 mg. 3xday, you may be tolerant to it now and need more of it to work.
Do you need the Adderall for chronic fatigue or something else? I'd suggest weaning off it if it is not working for you.
You DID SAY taking Xanax and the Adderall together worked. Why not stick with that?
All the best to you!!! Tony
