I just recently was diagnosed with ADD> i am 33yrs old. i was having a very difficult time concentrating, focusing, MEMORY, recall...etc...
I am NOT hyperactive.
I started on Stattera for a month. the only thing i got from Stattera was that i could never sleep...i was WIDE awake. and even if i got 3hrs of light sleep i was still wide awake when i got up in the am. SO there was a postive and negative to that.
I went back to doc cuz i felt no difference with the med. She put me on Concerta for 1 week and 1/2. the pharmacists said i *should* experience something the day i took it. again i felt nothing at all. not even being alert like strattera.
SO,,,,she started me on Generic Adderall 7.5mg 3x/day 4 days ago. i felt nothing the 1st day. and everyday since the 1st day i have increased the morning dose by 1 extra pill.
so i started on 7.5 in the morning and now at 37.5 in the morning....and i dont see or feel or experience ANYTHING different.
I have spoken w my pharmacists MANY times. we are both confused. i am not responding to any of these meds..........WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY?
it seems everyone else responds at the 1st dose and i have taken 5x the initial dose in the a.m. and still havent experienced anything different from day to day. Could this be a SUGAR PILL??
Whats going on with me??? do i need a Branded Adderrall? or different manufacture of the GEneric Adderall? or try Ritalin?
CAN SOMEONE HELP???
i am frustrated and need some help! thx in advance for the help!
P.S. its a 7.5mg Blue Pill made by BARR
