I've done enough all-nighters for papers and exams in my time while on Adderall that my dopamine/catecholamine reserves are shot and run on fumes in-between Adderall dosing. I'm hoping L-Tyrosine Alpha-Ketoglutarate will help replenish my reserves, but so far I've only come across conjecture, and no long-term effects seem to be reported, either.
Does the stuff help dopamine re-grow, or merely act at the time of ingestion, bumping up dopamine/catecholamine temporarily and then saying sianara when it's done? And does it actually work? I wonder what happens when it's combined with dl-PA (phenylthylamine) (sp)....
studies? trip reports? It would be nice not to have to rely on Bronkaid (ephederine) just to get out of bed on days I'm not on Adderall. Although I'm switching docs, and hopefully my next doc will switch me to Vyvanse at 140mg.
My current doc won't give me more than 70mg, so I'm off it, even though 140mg=the 60mg of Adderall/day I'm on now, and my insurance's prior authorization covers up to 170mg/day... when I'm on Adderall, I re-dose too much for papers/exams, so I wind up being out of it before my next refill, and have terrible crashes.
When I took Vyvanse, I wouldn't take more than prescribed, because after 7AM, I risk not sleeping if I re-dose, and besides, it stops metabolizing after 200mg.
