Hi, so im a highschool student, and i was prescribed with Adderal..long story short it just didnt work out. I stared off on 15mg and it was overwhelming. I had terrible headaches, and i was always on edge. My heart rate was going so fast, i had to go to the nurse (i thought i was having a heartattack!!) With adderal i always felt the need to be moving, it had a super high kick. Another thing is that i had a COMPLETE loss of appetite, i didnt feel like i had to eat. I did not know this at the time, but Adderal is supposed to be swallowed, not opened up(like i did). It was a little misleading because on the packaging it said it could be opened up rather than swallowed, but my doctor said otherwise. I was on Adderal for about a week and it did help me out but the side effects were just not worth it. My doctor then switched me to Vyvanse (because of my anxiety, adderall wasnt so great, and because i cannot swallow pills) It was mucchh better. I still had faster heartbeats than normal , but not as fast as when i was on adderal. Im currently on 40mg, and it seemed to have been working until recently. Ive also been on spring break for the past week, so i did not take the drug(i feel like it worked waay better before).. Ive now been on vyvanse for about 4 weeks maybe? and i feel like its not working as well. its weird because its been working but idk what happened. Now its like i only get the bad side affects, rather than helping me focus. honestly im not sure if its making me worse, or not doing anything anymore..I find that im always cranky aswell, like its hard to stay in a good mood. This may not be because of the drug, but ive recently had a lot of trouble sleeping, havent gotten more than 4 hours any night this week.. should i ask my doctor to take me to 50mg? or wait it out?
