Thank you all so much for your advice and replies. You have helped me more than you know! I’m so grateful to each and every one of you. I’m still on 20mgs. According to my schedule of dropping 10mgs a month, as of March 1- I should drop again. I don’t think I can handle it after this latest drop 30-20. Really tough w/d’s. I’m thinking about staying on 20 for another month before I drop again. Im going to see my drug dealer I mean doctor tomorrow who writes me 3 months of scripts at once. Last I saw him I told him I had dropped to 40. I’m going to tell him I am now on 20 and suffering typical Adderall w/d’s. See if he had any advice on how to taper- I know I should be exhausted foggy hungry- I want to get off minimizing the negative affects as much as possible. While still being able to work and function. Thank you all !!! All advice and responses are helpful!
I’ve been on Adderall for over 10 years. I’ve been attempting to taper my dose. I want off but the cold turkey withdrawal is too difficult. I was on 60mgs instant release per day. I cut down to 40mgs per day. The first two months. The following month I dropped to 30mgs per day. This month I attenpted to drop to 20mgs per day but am finding it difficult to stay on 20mgs per day. I’m not functional experiencing brain fog, I’m exhausted depressed confused etc. Am I tapering too fast? I do need to work and stay functional. Does anyone have any advice on a tapering schedule that worked for them? I assume this won’t be easy and should experience discomfort- the latest drop from 30mgs to 20, is making me bedridden. I’m not sure what is the right time way to do this with the least discomfort. My doctor is no help. Thank you.
