In reply to Adderall - dosage advice, experience wanted, posted by sjb on December 6, 2001, at 7:55:59

> I started Adderal for the first time last Fri at 5mg twice a day along w/Celexa at 20mg. I felt great for 5 days, lots of energy, decreased appetite (am atypical) and then after 5 days seemed to be back to my old ways. I did have a lot of insomnia but I didn't care as I was actually getting excited about the holidays (usually DREAD them) and making plans for vacation!!! (Never go on vacation.) Pdoc didn't want to up dosage as he says my emotions/feelings/neediness overwhelm my medicine. I'm sure there is truth in that but the dosage for Adderal seems low and would like try to go higher. Would like advice.
> Thanks.

What are you taking the Adderal for?

Do you mean that when you started taking the Adderal you really felt well and then after a few days you started feeling down again?

Unfortunately, pstims are not ADs and even if they do give you an AD effect it's fleeting unless you take more of the drug.

Sometimes what I do is skip a dose here and there (when I can) so that I create a small stash. Then when I need it, I'll add the extra dose with my regular dose and if I'm lucky, sometimes I'll achieve the desired AD effect.

When I started Adderal, I felt pretty good. But after about a week I noticed that it made me depressed as ****. The Ritalin works better for me.

>PDoc didn't want to up dosage as he says my emotions/feelings/neediness overwhelm my medicine.

What does that mean?

Good luck,
