i was on adderoll xr **still am** and for the first semester i did freakin amazing!! straight A's... highest grade in like 2 classes & had amazing teacher rec. forms filled out by some teachers... before that i was a good student and teachers liked me.. but this was beyond that b/c i actually TRIED on homework... never like i used to before...

but then a combo of things happend. since my (then) bf was friends with different peopel than i was... i literally stopped talking to aLL my friends cuz i knew he was happier hanging out with his friends.... i switched my 2nd semester schedule to help the ppl i babysit for who needed a nanny and only had 2 classes @ HS and then i took 2 in community college... 3 days i babysat and 2 i went to CC.... then my grandma got sick and was diagnosed with lung cancer... and shes like my best friend EVEr b/c i can tell her anything and im her only granddaugher(lots of boys tho)... and i got kicked off my cheerleading team for NO reason *thats another story tho* lol....
i stopped taking the adderol b/c i didn't want to be all preppy and happy like normal for a little while... or i took lower dosage of it sometimes b/c my paernts usually were in the kitchen when i was taking it anyways... but even so.. i found it didn't work as well as it had before on the same dosage...

...and then i basically lost all focus & concentration... startd falling really behind on papers in one of my classes... falling asleep in another one.. and then i basically just stopped going... i couldnt handle alll that *plus other stuff*... PLUS homework...nooope.

and then my doctor said up the dosage.... *along with other med..UGH**... but for a little while i felt all jittery & agitated.... but not really with focus/concentration... kinda like i felt in the beginning when i was taking it.. but REFUSED to let my brain concentrate on homework or anything productive... so i just felt jittery for no reason and couldn't sleep...even with some sleep pill my doc said to take...

ALLLRIGHT. sorry for the LONG post.. soo to answer ur question... it's probably normal ...from what i've experienced @ least... and what i've heard from other ppl...
and if u get to a higher dose and it's still not working.. u can always try other drugs... i THINK since adderol is making me kinda jumpy/agitated *w/e u wanna call it*... one doc suggested another med... starts with a C?? i forgot what it's called tho sorry...

ok hope i could help! sorry for writing such a long one
