Instead of adding Ambien or any other sleep aid, why not just ask the doctor for a lower dose of Adderall, or a non-XR version, so it wears off before bedtime?
I am new to this board. So sorry if you already tried this. Could you take the adderall xr earlier than 10am? That way it would be out of your system earlier? I wish I could try a extended release but with no health insurance I can't afford it right now. I am taking instant release Ritalin 30mg 3 times a day and it only lasts about 2 hours. When it starts to wear off I get a horrible headache. My husband says it also makes me cranky and irritable!
It also makes me tired, I can lay down and go to sleep a hour after taking it.

As for a good sleep aid that is OTC and all natural...have you tried melatonin? It is a substance our bodies already make. My son takes vyvanse and melatonin is safe to take. Vyvanse is adderall based, so maybe ask your doctor. I know he can take up to 10mg per night.

Hopefully you get some good sleep!

Sorry I wrote a book!

Thanks for your reply! I tried taking the Adderall XR earlier as well as the citalopram and still either couldn't fall asleep or woke up multiple times through the night...I will ask my Dr about Melatonin....I am not sure if the Adderall is even working well for my add...
