> > Thank you for replying so promptly. My headache is getting worse, my doctor's gone for the holiday, and I'm not certain whether to go back on Adderall or just quit both....probably the latter. I don't think either medication requires a gradual reduction in dosage...I believe I have read that it is out of your system within 8 to 16 hours. The headache and the "feeling crappy" just has to go. Thanks again. Hope all is well in your home! Nan

Thanks, L.S. As noted, yesterday, I was thinking of discontinuing it; but yesterday I took 1/2 dosage (100 mg) and today I have taken 1/2. I don't seem to feel too bad. No jitters, no headache yet, but notice some tightness in my neck and shoulders that wasn't there before I took the 1/2 dose. If it helps with my concentration over time and doesn't cause any worse symptoms, I'm hoping that the 1/2 dose may work. If not, back to finding something that will??? Thanks again! If anyone else has advice, please write. Nan
