When I first started taking adderall it was the first time I had gotten out of bed and stayed out for a long time. I was severly depressed. On the 1st week of adderall I felt finally somebody figured it out and I never felt this good in my whole life. I felt I finally got my life back at 52 with the proper diagnois and medication. I cleaned my house for the first time in 5 years and I mean deep cleaning, I had so much energy and I felt focused and so excited that I cleaned and cried and thanked God the whole day. That lasted for about a week. Then back to the same struggles. Could not get organized, could not focus, energy gone. What happened? I am devastated. I would more than appreciate any advice, comments or answers. Thank you
Feel for your situation, would take the liberty of recommending to hang in & try & stay happy, feel good, perhaps it is easier said than done but certainly you could make the effort, life is precious friend & we only live once, perhaps its all in the mind & your mind set which has been a tuned, please try to come out of the situation that you are in.
However, the highest dose of adderall is 30mg, but please do not self medicate before taking to your doc/pharmacist.
Take care, wish you all the best, stay well!
I feel for your situation. I'm almost 46 and suffer severe depression. The highest dose of Adderall for me was 30 mg. Now, I'm down to 15mg. But, all under a doctor's supervision-psychiatrist. I was put on Adderall not for depression. It was to counter the severe sleepiness Effexor gave me. At this time I wasn't depressed.
But, now, I am and I can relate to your situation. I would call my psychiatrist. More Adderall isn't the solution. Good luck. You're not alone.
