I have ADD and I just started taking adderall xr yesterday
Anyone else on this medication? Anyone else on other meds for ADD?
How are they working for you?
I am feeling really hopeful that this stuff will work….but it’s certainly going to take a little bit to get adjust to these meds.
Any tips from any fellow medicated ladies? 🙂

Hi! I do and yes, I take the same med, I have for the last 8 years…
I was diagnosed about 10 years ago and couldnt believe how much its helped me. I went through massive testing, pulled transcripts from schools and college and my doc finally said “no wonder you can’t get anything done” lol
you might have insomnia, dry mouth..loss of appetite..so make yourself eat or you’ll eat late at night when the meds wear off. I don’t take it everyday and try to give myself a break once in a while when I feel I can..only because i feel it gives my body a break from the drug…just keep track of how you feel and keep your doc posted. Your body will get used to it over time and the side effects wont bother you as much! GOOD LUCK!

Hi, I was on it for awhile … I’ll tell ya, you get really skinny! I had to stop taking it because I lost my job and my insurance and it was $400/month. I have anxiety issues and take valium so the adderall was prescribed to me as an “upper”. I could really use going back on it now – planning my wedding and having some family problems really is making me unfocused.
It will kind of wig you out at the beginning, give you energy and the shakes, but your body will get used to it.
Good luck! And if you have any problems, talk to your doctor. Mine is the best.

I have ADHD! But I’m not medication… they tried Ritelin… Ridilin… whatever, but it made me so, so mean and angry so I dropped that mess.

I was diagnosed with ADD over 20 years ago. I tried various meds and they all made me feel weird so I do not take any. I have learned to deal with it but it takes a lot of effort. I still managed to earn a PhD in spite of it. Many of the world’s best inventors and researchers have or had ADD. Not thinking in a linear fashion can have its advantages.
