I was diagnosed with ADHD about a month ago and have been prescribed Adderall. Originally, I took 20mg once a day. It gave me a headache; so the doc told me to try taking 10mg in the morning and then 10mg around lunchtime. I do feel a difference, but it also wears off. How do I know if the way that it makes me feel is the way that I would feel if I were "normal" and didn't need it?

I do focus better, it hasn't really helped with energy (desire to get up and do something) or organization and memory. If I understood correctly, those are all some of the symptoms of ADHD. I also have Depression which I have been taking Effexor XR for years. At the moment my dosage is 150mg/day. Maybe it's this med that needs to be changed. I don't "feel" like I love my family and this has been for years. Yet, when I first take the adderall I actually "feel" love for a couple of hours after I take it.

So, I guess my biggest complaints that I don't feel like the meds have helped are: feeling love, energy (desire), organization, and memory.
