  1. What's the craziest thing you did on Adderall?

    There is so much because I was on it for such a long time. The most recent nutty thing i remember toward the end of my use was that I was convinced that the United States was about to be hit by an EMP while I was at work. So I packed hiking boots, water, and an emergency bug out back pack with city street maps, food etc. and kept it in my car. I wanted to make sure I had proper shoes to get me to the daycare to pick up my son when it happened. Because the EMP was going to fry my car. I pictured myself hiking across the dark city and freeways of fried cars to get my son. I considered bringing my bike with me to work everyday but I couldn’t figure out how to do it practically without it getting stolen.

    That site works. Thanks.
  3. Adderall Recovery Guide

    I tried to go to that website, but I suspect that website Is blocked in America. I get a dns error.. Here in America there is a cold medication with that same name and it contains speed. At least that is what I found just now when I googled it.

    Isn’t that just a super mild form of speed?
  5. New day, same results.

    I don’t have the answer but I know it’s not Adderall. I sometimes feel the same way as you. I took for 12 years been off 2 years. I am so lazy I lounge any chance I get. Energy is so low I think it has to be partly a result of getting older too. Younger people seem to have more resilience when it comes to getting off Adderall. You know going back to Adderall is gonna be - they say all your side effects come back right away and you don’t get the honey moon again. So basically you would just be picking up where you left off in your use. Which was a place that was so bad it made you want to quit. And you’d be back to square one but have to go through withdrawals all over again. Just skip all that pain and stay off.
  6. After a Decade on Adderall, I’m 30 Days Clean

    Yes I probably gained about ten pounds in the first three months. I gained approx 15 pounds total but then lost five after my appetite went back to normal. I think it took about a year or so but it’s different for everybody.
  7. After a Decade on Adderall, I’m 30 Days Clean

    It will pass. I remember being in the stage you are in. your appetite will go back to normal slowly the longer you stay away from the drug. It just takes time. That’s why you should not go back. You don’t want to have to go through this all over again. You’re doing great. Working out everyday is a major accomplishment. you should be proud. Keep it up. It will pay off. I gained total of about 10-12 lbs net since I quit. I’ve been off for two years now after taking them for twelve.. I’m not super skinny anymore. I have to watch my weight like regular non addy people now. But My appetite is not out of control anymore. a little bit of weight gain is worth it to have an adderall free life. So keep doing what you are doing. And remember that some people gain weight at first and then lose it all after being off for a while. (Btw one thing that helped me when I was super hungry all the time was to eat a lot of high fiber foods because it helps you stay full longer because of all the bulk. Like prunes, oatmeal, veggies and stuff like that.)
  8. @Shea27 I know it’s a long shot since you haven’t been on here in a long time but I wanted to see if you might come back and tell us how you are doing. How are you and how are your legs?
  9. Did husband leave marriage because of his Adderall?

    I’m so sorry you are going through this. Yes, this sounds like Adderall induced behavior. I went through something similar when I got hooked on Adderall. I Left my high school sweetheart after we were together 5.5 years and went through college together. He didn’t do anything wrong. He was wonderful and a fantastic partner. Adderall turned me into someone I didn’t recognize. I went from head over heals in love with him to all of a sudden (enter Adderall) I wanted to be away from him and I didn’t even understand why. It was the Adderall “trance”. To this day, twenty years later, I still regret leaving him. I think your ex will unfortunately regret what he has done too. Someday. He can hit rock bottom no matter how much money he has access to. Adderall honeymoon does not last. It’s only a matter of time.
  10. Why my short relapse wasn't a bad thing.

    Thank you for sharing your experience. We took for a silimar length of time and dose so I’m sure it would be similar for me if I went back on a small dose. Sometimes I fantasize about going back onto 5 mg to see if I can get ahead at work for a bit but hearing your experience makes me see that’s a bad idea. Hope you are feeling better.
  11. I finally need to tell my doctor

    Quit Once this is a brilliant idea. Kim, If they want to give you an alternative stimulant tell them you don’t like being on stimulants that they make you feel jittery and give you a headache.
  12. 3 Years! (kinda)

    This is great news, way to go SS. It’s taken me my whole life to figure our that those things you speak of: stable job, normal life, loving spouse, and the ability to plan for the future - those are big accomplishments. I have to recognize that because in the aftermath of Adderall addiction that’s pretty much what I have achieved too. And those are big deals. They really are! I believe it will continue to get even better the farther away we get from the Adderall addicted life.
  13. Doctor appointment today

    Yes, way to go. You made the right decision and you should be proud of yourself. I’m proud of you! BTW I lost my post Adderall weight gain with a low/no sugar, high protein and healthy fats diet. That’s the “diet” I’m sticking with because it really works and I don’t even consider it a diet because I don’t feel deprived of anything. Stay away from processed food And sugar. Taking any drug for weight loss just isn’t sustainable. Healthy eating and exercise is. You can do this!
  14. A year off adderall and in a bit of a slump

    These feelings are going to pass. It’s going to get better. Slumps don’t last. What can you do right now to make you feel better. Get outside and go for a walk in nature and get some sun on your skin. Hang in there. Be kind to yourself right now. You can get through this and you will be even stronger for it.
  15. I have reached a new level of addiction

    Did the blood pressure medicine help him enjoy sex again or are you saying Adderall ruined his sex life forever?
