And now we on this site are probably the ones who can tell you most about long term effects of adderall. 

YUP. That’s exactly what I feel like. Adderall lab rat! Sometimes it’s still hard not to be resentful towards my parents for not having some forethought of all the implications putting me on this type of drug (at such a young age) we’re going to be but I guess they were just blindly trusting a doctor. I know I will never make the same mistake with my children.

This is old, but just wanted to share that I’ve been on nuvigil for the past month while.l quitting vyvanse cold turkey. Quitting ALOT of vyvanse cold turkey. 
 

it’s been great for me - I don’t have cravings to take more than prescribed like I did with vyvanse, and feel like it has made the past month+ a little less miserable. Initially I was taking 250mg, but that made my anxiety go crazy so I’ve gone down to 125 and am in the perfect range. 
 

Just wanted to share my positive experience. 

Please share it cautiously, and remember that a suggestion like the one you are implicitly making could be disastrous for many on this forum and wreak havoc on the recovery that they have worked so hard to preserve.

You might not have cravings to take more because its new to you.  Its still a stimulant like adderall or vyvanase.  Thats why it made your anxiety go crazy.  If you want to put the anxiety and side affects behind you, I'd get off this stuff as quickly as you can.  Deal with the shitty withdrawls, push through and start recovering/healing.

Its a stimulant, but not in the way adderall and vyvanse are - no denying that. I guess agree to disagree.

I didn't make any suggestion, implicitly or explicitly. I just wanted to share a story that is counter to everything else in this thread.
 

I was prescribed nuvigil to help me stop taking amphetamines, used the medication responsibly and had positive results. thats the kind of thing this forum was created to share.
