  1. Help

    Not sure if this helps at all, but Adderall can definitely change one’s entire personality. I know it happened to me. I’m sorry you have to deal with this.
  2. I’ve been working out consistently since I quit (a little over 2 months ago). I haven’t gained any weight. I’m actually 2 pounds lighter. I was on Adderall for 10 years so the appetite suppressant perk stopped around the fifth year. Hope this helps!
  3. Moving cities

    I am also a musician. I sang in my first open mic last year. It was terrifying!! I’ve been playing piano and drums every day. It’s one of the only things I can focus on for 10 minutes at a time without the addies. I’m hoping to get back in the open mic scene this year! What do you think made you relapse after 18 months?
  4. I’m curious how you have all dealt with friendships and relationships during recovery. I am currently 46 days clean. During my first week of withdrawals, one of my best friends completely cut me off without explanation. I believe it is due to the fact that I lashed out at him about money he owed me. (Lesson learned: I’ll never loan out money again.) Lashing out was completely out of character for me and I’ve apologized for it since. What I didn’t do is tell him why I believe it happened. I was a basket case that first week off of Adderall. This is a drug I’ve been prescribed for many years. After 45 days of reflection, I’m ashamed of how I behaved in this manner. Should I explain this? ...or just let it go? I’m just curious how you have all dealt with these out of character scenarios that are similar to mine. How open are you about the recovery process?
  5. Committed to quitting adderall today

    I wonder how your friend was able to obtain multiple prescriptions. Pharmacies have systems that can track this action down right away. Good luck in your recovery. You were taking what we would call a “baby dose” each day of Adderall. It’s probably a good thing you’re quitting now. You can do it!
  6. Frank, $200. I loaned it back in September.
  7. Couch to 5k

    I’m 30 days off Adderall and about to finish week 2 of the Couch to 5K myself! It’s a great program. I completed the program a few years ago on Adderall. I’m hoping to do the same off the drugs!!
