Flooding your brain with dopamine from Adderall and being unable to break it down essentially means you are bathing in dopamine but cannot get it out of your system. It builds and builds until, in my case, a dystonic reaction occurs.
> These reactions go away with time, but they are very scary. The twitch is gone, but the stiff, aching lips remain although it is getting better. It's only been 9 days since I quit Nardil so it's still in my system. I think it will take a few more weeks to get over this.

YMMV! I am currently takeing, Nardil-45mg, Zyprexa-5mg(for insomnia), and 10mg Adderall prn.
Its been 5 weeks now and is finally becoming quite helpfull for my SP/Dysthymia. The side effects are diminishing.
The mode of action of all psychoactive meds is not known. Any theory that only addresses Dopamine, Seretonin and NE is absured. What about neurosteroids, steroids, cell growth in the amyglia, hpga axis changes, etc., etc..
We are still in the dark ages of mental health treatment. It seems to be inherant in most of us to understand what is amiss will our biochemistry. Unfortunately it cannot be understood at present. Best wishes!
