self medicating with adderall - question

Posted by adverse on October 14, 2003, at 17:29:40

I started self medicating with adderall a year ago when I realized I have ADD and it can fix many of my lifelong problems.

Before I started taking it, I read several studies, books about pharmocology, adult adhd, addictions, and self mecidating. After I knew what I was doing, I started taking 10mg/day for about 5 months, paused treatment over the summer, and now im taking 10mg/twice a day. I have never abused it nor do I have any desire to.

I decided to see a dr. and get officially diagnosed and he gave me 10mg adderall XR/day. This is a problem because 10mg/bid of IR adderall is my optimal dose and the 10mg adderall XR isnt cutting it. Im scared to talk to him about it because the idea of a college student + adderall will make him flip out. any thoughts?
