this is my second day off of adderall, i had been on 20mg, 3 times per day for about a month. two days ago, i took half of my normal amount, thinking i would taper off. i had gotten to the point though, where the drug was making me feel awful. so yesterday, i went cold turkey and today i've done the same. i'm in the most brutal depression i've been in in years due to the withdrawal. everything is making me anxious and i'm tired and sad about things that normally don't make me sad. i called off work yesterday and today. tomorrow i really have to go to work and i'm feeling unable to. i don't expect this to lift overnight. the only thing i can think of to do, is to go back to a small dose of the adderall tomorrow to get through the work day. and then i would do the same on friday. i really don't want to do this because i don't want to have to start the whole withdrawal process over again. but i can't go to work feeling like this either. i'm in a really bad way. anyone have any ideas for me? thanks.
