My brain just works on overdrive is all I say lol. I've always had difficulty sitting still and staying focused on any one task at a time. My Dr. put me on Adderall XR two years ago and they really seemed to make a huge difference for me. I am able to clear my head of the fog that seemed to be distracting me before and I still have the energy to work my 10 hour days and still hit the gym.

Adderall is an amphetamine based drug the side effects could be what's making you feel the way you feeling right now . I only been sleeping four hours a day for the last few years from taking something similar .

I've only been on adderall about two years now, but I've had trouble sleeping since I was about 13 :( . I typically get about 2 hours of sleep, yet if I'm really luck I get 4. Tonight zero! Gotta go to work in an hour yippee lol.

Most people who have ADD also suffer from insomnia.

Yeah I have it really bad.

Me too and three. :o)

Yes, I totally understand and I'm in agreement with you 100%. Sometimes I am lucky to get a whole two hours of sleep in one night.

This is very common for peeps with ADD. Sometimes I am drad tired, thinking tonight is going to be the night I get some sleep and nothing but frustration. I agree 4 hours of sleep at this point is sweet! Hang in there!
