ADHD in Women
Adderall side effects
I started adderall about two months ago after taking Ritalin for about six months. Ritalin was causing a lot of nausea and wasn’t really helping me focus. But I felt great!! Adderall was like night and day. The chaos stopped. Everything became quiet and slowed down. I take 25mg a day and can’t take XR formula. My problem is, it makes me sleepy and by evening I am like a zombie. I’m mentally exhausted, don’t want to talk and feel depressed. I’ve considered taking 10mg in morning and afternoon with 5 mg in late afternoon but before that I wanted to see if this was a common side effect and if another med is better. I like adderall because of the quiet in my head, but it’s hard to initially begin a task and hyper focus is an issue.
