Re: Adderall
Jul 18, 2006
I've been on Adderall for about 2 years. I've noticed it isn't as effective as before and a dosage increase fixes it. Others have mentioned this also. I haven't noticed anything adverse otherwise.

As for a better med, not all meds work the same for others. It'll mostly be/should be a trial effort weighing the positive effects versus the negative effects.

Now, I'd recommend you create a list of the ADD symptoms you'd like to take care of and let your doc know. While you are taking a particular med, you have a list of what you'd like to expect and also make a list of the side effects you don't like. *Also check with the doc to see the particular side effect goes away after a short period of time (I wanted to stop Adderall but the doc aked me to hang in there a week or two more. Finally, a good night rest and I haven't had much trouble sleeping since).

Talk with the doc about your list (I sure hope you have one that listens to you. That's real important) and it may be a dosage adjustment or another med all together.

A game plan is important.
