My Struggle With AdderallI am 19 years old. I was prescribed Adderall about 4 years ago for ADHD. At first, the drug was like a miracle. I had more energy, lost weight, loved to work, I felt more happy. It was everything anyone could want. As time went by, I continued to need to up my dosage because I wasn't getting the same effect with the original dosage. 4 years later, and I have gained ALL my weight back, I have a headache nearly everyday, my stomach hurts unless I snack throughout the whole day (even though food doesn't sound good) and I was up to (5) 30 mg. pills a day. I've became anti social, didn't want to go anywhere, Adderall eventually began to do the reverse effects it had on me in the beginning. I could go on all day with my story but I will try and rap it up,lol. I made a new years goal that starting the new year I wasn't going to take adderall ever again. I quit cold turkey which was the worst thing I could have done. I did good for about 1 week but pressure from work was too much.I gave in and now I am back to taking adderall :( I have managed to cut down on my dosage. I am now down to taking (2) 30 mg. a day. I am still trying to quit completely but it is very tough.
