You need not suffer anymore friend, I have been despising adderall withdrawal for about 4 years now. Alas, the weirdest drug in the world i have figured out. All I did was study the ill effects on me and how to counteract them every time I took it. Now I never feel the pain.
N E WAY #1 best cure= non-strenuous aerobic exercise with effective breathing always works. You barely even remember you take adderall after working out.
#1/2 best cure= b12--awesome healthy supplement. I take 1000 mcg timed release--rest of the b vitamins are a good idea too.
#1/2/3 best cure= vitamin E. good for everything.
#1/2/3/4 best cure= vitamin C. It can cause more pain though because it acidifies stuff and causes you to eliminate amphetamine quicker causing more of a plateau of pain you jump from.
#2 best cure=550 mg of naproxen sodium (Aleve). This works wonders for that aftermath of impending doom and unbound fear you get from withdrawal. I now take this dose every 6 hours on days when i take adderall. Almost equal to exercise.
#3 best cure= L glutamine. This helps relax you a lot but is expensive.
#4 best cure= ginko biloba--Pharmation brand--Helps out when you feel like you are about to die from anxiety and the whole left side of your body's circulatory system cramps up.
#5 best cure= ginseng--Pharmation brand--seems to regulate you into your normal state of mind instead of the dopamine hungry adderall psychosis state of mind. Seems to raise blood pressure a little though, just be careful.
#6 best cure= cayenne pepper-1200 mg 40000 heat unit. I didnt think it would do anything for me when I first tried it, but it relaxes you, helps you breathe, helps with circulation, gives you your saliva back, and inhibits the bacteria that causes acid reflux (due to skipping all those meals)
#7 best cure=garlic with high allicin yield (enteric coated to absorb in the intestine). Helps out with circulation.
#8 best cure= pynogenol and grape seed extracts (both have same active antioxidants). I recently started taking these sups and they seem to help with circulation, heartaches, and headaches but the quality supplements are aggrivatingly expensive.
#9 best cure= protein shake just to return energy to body and mind
#10 best cure= remember everything is okay and nothing is the end of the world. don't be afraid of the adderall. i dont want to take it before hand, but after i do take it i never regret it (except when I am around a bunch of people...this situation seems to have the power to freak me out).
P.S. remember to eat healthy food at least a little bit throughout the day
