High Adderall tolerance
| Island_Girl
Has anyone taking Aderrall built up an extremely high tolerance? I can take 100mg with not much effect so have now just switched to Concerta but surely I will have the same problem? I found the Aderall tolerance built up quickly so my Dr kept increasing the dose until it was 50mg. When I had a hectic day at work I took more and within 4 weeks I was almost immune to 100mg (and of course ran out of the prescription). I just want to know if anyone else has had a similar experience with Aderrall tolerance?

I'm with you, there is a problem with the Activis version of Adderall
| OutofFocus
I absolutely agree that the Activis manufactured generic form of Adderall should never be taken, and going without the drug is a better alternative than dealing with the mind altering effects the drug riddles you with. I became lethargic, felt as if my mind had been permanently altered, and the only clear thoughts I had were horrifically depressive in nature.

Does Protonix and Klonopin affect the Adderall I take as well?
| John Ward
I have a question I have been want answered for a bit now. I am currently taking Depakote ER (Epilepsy)....Protonix (acid reflux/GERD etc.)...and then first was put on Klonopin for anxiety ...i only take 1 mg total a day and split it up so its not much. I take Adderall IR as well bc i was recently diagnosed with adult ADHD about 4 months ago. Lastly I am on Lexapro that he also prescribed me besides the Adderall for anxiety/depression.My question is about the Adderall and its effects on the other medications I am on...I believe the Adderall is not as effective sometimes because I am on Protonix. I dont know if this is true? and also the Klonopin. I feel like I dont even need the Klonopin. I told him I would rather take it as needed now instead of everyday. So between the small dose of Klonopin and the Protonix that HAS to be effecting the dosageand duration and effectiveness of my Adderall correct? Any information would help me thank you! I take 10Mg Adderall IR 4x a day...started that dose just a month ago...used to be on half of that and that didnt last very long either. Oh! and Should I take Adderall on empty stomach? before I eat or after I eat?

I don't know how helpful I can be, but I can say that perhaps the combination of medications is causing some effect. My mother also suffers from Epilepsy and has so since she was 3 years old. They started out as Grand Mal and now they are Petite Mal seizures or also known as Absence Seizures. She takes Lamictal and I have done the same to treat my Bipolar 1 disorder,generalized anxiety disorder and my panic disorder. Perhaps, a switch of medication may be in order. My sister took Lexapro,but I don't know enough about it to say how effective it is to treat anxiety/depression. I can say that taking 25mg of Lamictal treated all of my issues and I took it just 2x a day. I was reading how Lamictal was proven to be very effective for treating adult patients with adult ADHD and Depression. Think of it like a 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner. Why take several pills to treat the conditions that can treated with just 1 pill? I'm not a doctor,but perhaps you can bring it up with your doctor as an option. Wouldn't hurt to try,right? Oh, Lamictal is an anticonvulsant if you haven't guessed that already so you could treat the anxiety/depression, the ADHD and the Epilepsy with just 1 pill possibly! Sounds better than taking bunch of medicine,right? Anyways, keep me posted and good luck!

Is this safe?
| Jackson24
Anyone ever had or heard of any problems taking modafinil and viagra, is it safe to take in same day?

?
| mhop
Adderall worked pretty well for my ADHD in the beginning but really I found that the most effective "treatment" was just coming up with coping strategies, like taking really organized, detailed notes, building breaks into my work schedule, starting projects way before the due date. I also find outlining generally helpful. So now I don't take any meds and have taught myself to get things done in a way that works for me - and my coworkers, friends and family just know they have to bring me back when I start to get that far-away look. Weirdly, when I started taking Adderall it cured my Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome - it came back once I stopped.

SUDDEN TERRIBLE LAG AND LOWER BACK PAIN FROM DIFFERENT TYPE OF SUBs?!? HELP PLEASE
| TankSubs
Was just switched 8 days ago from the old Orange subs to the new suboxone tablets, white in color, and comes in a pop through foil packaging. Same dose, 8mg/2mg (Bup/Nalox) , For over a year I never had ANY issues, started at 8mg twice a day, 1 in morning & one at night. I dropped to 4mg by myself using Kratom powder for a week that relieved 80% of WDs, 2mg Xanax prescription took care of rest. (I'm still prescribed 8mg but I split them and save the other half in a bottle in my safe for a "cut off emergency" so I'm not without for a while if need be.) Anyway, I did this while I was taking the original orange tans and was fine, the second time I took the new white ones I went into acute WDs, but ONLY severe cramping, no other WD symptoms. it's now been 5 days (and terrible nights), and not subsiding at all, 10x worse overnight and peak pain always around 6am. I'm not taking norco or oxy, only xanax, Wellbutrin 300 XL, Adderrall 30mg IR. No other opiate or painkiller, not even tramadol and don't use kratom powder (opiate agonist) anymore. WHAT is with this acute WD pains, only in right thigh and full lower back? TERRIBLE, UNRELENTING, pain. Last night my girl had enough and had me take 2 norcos at once, I chewed them up, and 800mg Ibuprofen (prescription dose that pharmacist told me was safe) and Biofreeze spray. Pain subsided by 60% after 15 or so minutes but came slamming back into me at 6am again, about 4 hours later. Anyone else had this occur? Any advice to best stop the pain? My Dr is a general practitioner, doesn't understand what those feels like, you guys on here do though. I'd take some of your opinions anyday over a regular Dr that's clueless. His advice... ride it out for a while and see what happens... meanwhile I work a full time job, a part time job, trying to be there for my girl and we have a giant, very needy pitbull. I'm at the end of the rope with this now. How do I stop the pain? 1 pain free night would feel like heaven at this point. Taking subs or norco in the past used to immediately drain away all WD pain, it doesn't help anymore. I appreciate ANY LOGICAL or HELPFUL responses. It's been 17 years with opiates on and off, 6 full detox's in the Past. cold turkey from 220mg a day methadone when I couldn't pay the clinic the $175 a week anymore, Was almost 2 months before felt normal again. 2 seperate heroin detox when I was young about 20 yrs ago, 3 times norco detox and 1 oxy detox. I'm not stranger to this but I don't know why this is happening when I'm doing everything right and bodybuildingand eating VERY clean

Is it dangerous to take amphetamine with metroniazole
Brooks1818
March 25, 2016
It's not dangerous, no. I assume you mean "metronidazole", the antibiotic.

My brother has severe mental health issues should he carry on taking metronidazole as he is already acting strange from impaired speech to hallucinations

I am on an extremely high dose of Adderall XR and the itching drives me crazy! I don't want to pair it with an antihistamine because of the interference with my Adderall. I've just been trying to deal with it. I want everyone to understand that it's not just an itch here and there that I'm dealing with! The itching is pretty extreme! Can anyone else relate?
