trying to quiet adderal

16 posts in this topic

Hi I am new to this I figured I give it a try since I really don't have anyone to talk to ..it all started couple years ago when I first tried adderal I loved the feeling .. I have always been able to come off any drug that I have taken .. a month ago I was diagnosed with ADHD .. he started me with 10mg .. the first day I was good only took the two I was told to .. I had side effects dry mouth an started smoking like a whole pack of cigarettes. . The next day I took my first dose then my second but then it started not really working so well so I took another ..you get the picture. . By the time I had my doctors appointment for him to check how I was doing I was out of pills an having really bad withdrawals.. so he up my dose to 20mg ir I was so happy to beable to take my pills an stop the withdrawl I told myself ok this is a higher dose can't go crazy on it .. well I got to the pharmacy an they tell me my insurance won't cover it because you can only get 90 a month. . He only gives me 60 .. she tells me to come back in 5 days .. I was so pissed off I called ny doctor like he told me to if I had a problem that didn't help .. anyways I waited the 5 horrible days .. finally got my pills.. first day did good took one right when I got it .. then the second one around 4 .. then my ativan 1mg at 11.. well after that it was all down till .. I started taking up to 60 mg a day. Then 90 then 100 .. well I am just about out now an don't see mt doctor for another week ..it Was so much easier to quiet the other drugs I have tried before because I couldn't afford to keep buying them .. now this is hard I know once I get that script I will get the pills an start this whole thing all over again .. I have a one year old daughter I don't want her to think its ok to pop pills .. I can actually say the pills do really work good for me if I take them right .. I am more focused I can concentrat more an be a better mother to my daughter .. before I was angry all the time had anxiety attacks etc.. I also take celexa and ativan celexa makes it so I am not as angry .. well hopefully I can fix this problem .. maybe I should just get the script but give my mother the bottle an tell her to give me the right dose .. well only have 5 pills left I broke them into 10mg so will use these ones up because I know once they are gone I am fine .. wish me luck

Shorti,

 

I am going to pray for you.  Please save yourself a life of misery and stop taking this drug immediately.  Yes, it is going to be hard, but it will be SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much easier if you stop taking it now and deal with the temporary pain vs. waiting 10 years down the road after it has sucked your life out from under you.  It did the same exact thing to me. Once I got an actual prescription, it took root and my life was no longer "my life". I was a slave to it and nothing else or anyone else for that matter came before it.  It cost me my ex-fiancé, my job, a wrecked car, 2 trips to the ER wrapped up in a near death experience.  I'm telling you girl, it is NOT WORTH IT.  I did coke and ex too.  I used to do everything really.  The more you take, the more you need, and the more dependent you become.  There is never enough and you can either waste your whole life trying to chase that high or you can get clean now and RECOVER.   

 

I am so happy you posted and recognize this as a problem so early on.  We will help you. Just stay the course with us and lean on the people here for support.

 

Best wishes!

It is definitely no way to live. Find blessings and pleasures in all the small things in life.  

 

One thing I've done this past week that I've found really enjoyable is to light this jar candle every night. I light it when I eat my meals now as it is soothing and makes me happy.  It reminds me to slowly and mindfully enjoy my meal and savor every bite.  It just makes the atmosphere so pleasant.  I then take it with me and sit it the coffee table for the rest of the evening.  Simple things make me happy today.  :)

 

Do you have any little pleasures like this you could use during your quit to bring you joy?

Awe, see that's beautiful!  Maybe you can try to come up with some activities/fun things that will bring her pleasure and do them together.  Focus on loving her and you will find some joy and motivation to stay strong and drug free. :)

Your still on the fence should I quit or should I use there is nothing we can say to convince you to stop using adderall its all on you its your choice. The best advice I can give you was on my last post if you want to quit using adderall don’t be scared you will not die. Tell your DR. you want to quit the adderal and not to proscribe it to you any more if the junk is at your disposal it will tempt you it will call out your name and nag you like the devil himself your Dr. will most likely tell you to ween off butt I believe the most successful meted is hard cold Turkey. You will not have any medical issues with cold turkey jest plan old misery. Like I said get your ducks in order and jest do it

Cametment AND WILL POWER.
