adderall withdrawal problems with energy and weight

I have taken adderall (adderrall), about 80-120 mg per day, for 10 years. I have relapsed twice and want to recover for good this time. My main problem is that after one year in recovery, my energy level was still extremely low, and my weight gain was pretty high, despite an extremely healthy diet and running every day. I was a member of AA and attended meeting frequently, but the despair of never regaining my energy back or being able to eat like a normal person, or remotely close, drove me back to the amphetamines. Does anyone have any information on what aids might help with energy and weight, or how long if ever my chemical levels will return to normal. I want to live an honest life again. Thank you.

try L-tyrosine and 5 htp, that's what I used to  help combat withdrawal. I feel fine and it's been 6 months since i quit adderall (adderrall). Plus I've lost more weight than I did on adderall (adderrall)

Woozy- what is 5 htp?  I'm trying to get off adderall (adderrall) as well and it's been a pain.  I'm going on my second week....that stuff is awful.
