I've taken an ADD medication that didn't work well for me before and had to switch due to it not working. I am currently on VyVance. I take Lunesta for my insomnia. I guess you might try a different med. than the one you're on and see if that helps. I wish I had a better answer. I wish you all the luck. Ruth
Hi toddcas - I take my Adderall about 6:30 am (20 mgs IR) & do a bit of reading every morning. Its definitely tough to keep my eyes open, but that's the same thing that happened when I took the Dextroamphetamine. Its most likely because we've had issues with sleep during the night. I began making efforts to go to bed earlier (~10:30/11:00 pm) because I typically wasn't falling asleep until about 2 or 3 am, and then I'd sleep later. My Psychiatrist said that the best sleep is gained between 10 pm - 2 am, so I tried to get myself on a better schedule, which helped my moods, as well. I find that after my morning reading, I just force myself to get up & exercise each morning, and then the medication kicks in. But, if I don't kick myself out of bed, I could go back to sleep for hours! Anyway, I'm usually pretty tired at night now from the cycling/spinning or zumba classes, so I drift off earlier & feel better all the way around! Good luck.
Jillian P.S. same thing happens with coffee. I have a nice latte before bed & now sleep like a baby!
