  1. My health was deteriorating. Hard to breathe, high BP, racing heart, etc. I also did it for my family. You can't be a good wife or mother when you're taking Adderall.
  2. I still drink one cup in the morning. I think I always will. Giving up sugar sounds good, though. I know I eat a lot of junk.
  3. ONE MONTH CLEAN.. STRATERRA?

    I've never taken it, but Wellbutrin has helped me.
  4. How to Cut Doctor Off - Advice Needed

    I told my doctor that Adderall was simply not doing it for me anymore and not benefiting me in any way, shape, or form. I probably should have told him I was dependant on them, but at least now I can't call and simply get my script refilled. It's better than nothing. More than I have ever done in the past.
  5. Two weeks clean

    I've made it two weeks without Adderall. I've quit in the past, but this time it was different. For the first time I told my doctor I was done. At our last appointment I told him I wanted to taper down. I was on 40mg a day. After my month supply of 30mg I decided I had enough. I called him and told him I was forever done with Adderall.
  6. Do you drink off Adderall?

    I've never been a big drinker (maybe just early 20s when most of us are). I actually can't stand drinking without Adderall, not that I drink much with it, either. When I'm on Adderall I feel like they cancel each other out a bit, so I stick to one or two drinks. When I'm not taking Adderall drinking makes me so tired that I fall asleep after a couple glasses if wine.
  7. New horizons...

    I was clean a whole year and relapsed, so I feel your pain. It can be so hard. I just keep coming back to this site every time. It helps. There are some awesome people around here.
  8. Which was more awful for you guys: The worst day you had on Adderall or the worst day you had in recovery?
  9. I think this drug is the "mommy's little helper" of our generation. I have tons of friends who swear by these pills. When you try quitting you almost feel selfish. I can't lay on the couch and wait to feel better — another human being is counting on me to take care of them. Being a mom is tough. Life is tough. I love that feeling I get when my husband gets off work and the house is spotless, my kid is happy, and I have enough energy to cater to his every need. But we can't go on like this. Every day we continue to take these pills we lose ourselves a bit. I miss the old me.
  10. Just Flushed Pills!!!! QUITTING

    Flushing pills is so tough — it takes a lot of courage. Congratulations on taking that step. You did the right thing.
  11. Congratulations on being so strong. That's awesome.
  12. It worked right away for me. I've also heard not to take it every day. Researching online, I found that a lot of sources say different things.
  13. You have a medical problem. You're addicted to pills that a doctor prescribes you. No one is going to take your kid away if you seek help. It sounds to me like you're a good mother who wants what is best for her child.
  14. Wonderful news. Glad things are going good!
