anyone NOT having simulant poop-out?

Posted by LeadingZero on September 1, 2004, at 21:55:37

Over the last couple years I've been taking prescribed Adderall to treat my ADD. After some time, seemingly in stages, its positive aspects seem to all but vanish.

At for the first few days I experienced increased focus, inteligence, awareness and pause. After a week, the elivated awareness and inteligence seemed to subside. Keeping the dosage the same, the focus enhacements seem to subside weeks out. (I'm talking about focus in doing things that I don't find perticularly urgent or interesting.) At this point, it seems that the drug is just making me pause before response-- and that mostly because I'm just depleated and tired. Months in, I have more difficulty focusing, even on things that would otherwise have me rapt. I get brainfry easilly at this stage.

I don't think I'm expecting too much from the drug. I excersize moderately, get 7-10 hrs of sleep each night, and eat my wife's excellent, ballanced cooking, as well as take some suppliments. I'm left feeling so exhausted that I've fallen asleep on the industrial carpet in my cube midday.

I've spent the last few weeks off the stimulants, and my energy levels are back up, but so is my ADD.

I hear a lot of this on this board. Is this just the nature of stimulants... to get your hopes up just to fizzle, or is someone having genuine, prolonged success with them? (on the order 1+ years.)

Please respond if you have!
