> Mitch my man, you are the resident M.D. on call. Thanks for that advice. After last night's all-nighter, I only took 20 mg today and the last one at 1pm...And It feels soooooo good to be drowsy now. I'm definitely calling my doc tomorrow (of course I couldn't day)and only going to take 20 mg in two doses. Hey thanks for taking the time to give a shit about a complete stranger..very cool

Mike, given that you are taking 40mg/day I wouldn't be surprised that your pupils are dilated! No, the max I ever needed to take for ADD was just 5mg in the morning-that's it. I know that others need more. I would be careful staying on a high-dose (that is if you do not really need it-just take the min. of what you need), because of the hypertensive and cardiac effects of the amphetamine salts. Also, if you are not careful, you could get dopamine depletion or sleep-deprived which could trigger psychosis or seizures.
> > >Hey, thanks for letting me know that your insomnia wasn't long-term..By the way, were your pupils dilated when on Adderall, and if so, how did you explain that to people?
