  1. My husband has been on Adderall for a year. In that year he has completely changed. He is having an affair, basically kicked me out & moved her in 2 weeks later. He says she is the love of his life and he never really loved me. We went from being very loving, touchy/feeling with each other to him screaming at me that he doesn’t love me & deserves to be happy. He has said so many cruel things to me but at the same time says I am his best friend. Everyone who knows us is in shock because we actually had that Real Love everyone is looking for. We don’t talk very often now but when we do it usually him calling me freaking out, saying he is messed up in the head and doesn’t know what he is doing. Is this normal for some one on prescribed adderall? To be adamant that they are happy & found true love and the next to be freaking out & crying? He is an alcoholic and drug addict(meth & Oxie a few years ago)he hasn’t drank in 5 years and now he takes the prescribed adderall and then ambien at night. At least I think that is all he does. Any advice on how to handle all this is appreciated, right now all I do is pray for him and try not to have any contact. I feel like the man I loved is dead
  2. Is Adderall Ruining My Marriage?

    Your story is so similar to mine. My husband and I were married for 4 years. The doctor put him in Adderall May of 2018 and what followed was the total destruction of my marriage. He had/is having an affair. He basically kicked me to the curb last November and moved in his Affair 2 weeks later. I had to move back home with my brother and try to start my life over. The things he had said to me and the hate behind them is unbearable. He says he doesn’t love me and never did. Everyone who knows us is shocked because we did actually have one of those marriages everyone wants. We were best friends and loved each other deeply. He has lost his relationship with his parents over this & he doesn’t care. He is an alcoholic and addict but was completely sober when we got together. All I have is knowing I’m the only sober choice he has ever made & he choose her while on drugs. The person I loved is gone, I’m just trying to mourn him and the life we had. This Drug is Horrifying!!! I pray for his family that someday he wakes up and gets off it

    He has been on Adderall since last May. How long does he have to be on it before it starts to lose its affect & you want to up your dose?

    Thank you it helps. I just he would see it. How long did it take you until you were back to your normal self? I see glimpses of the man I married and he still calls to tell me he’s thinking about me and he’s confused & doesn’t know what he’s doing. Is that normal when coming off Adderall?
  5. I’m so sorry to hear this. My husband is a recovering alcoholic and his doctor put him in Adderall. He completely changed, the man I married has disappeared. He told me he didn’t love me and he didn’t want to be married to me anymore. We have known & loved each other since we were kids and finally after 35 years and different marriages we got to be together. Every one who knows us is in shock, people have told us you could feel the love we have for each other. We have only been married 4 years and we were very happy. He refuses to believe it’s the Adderall and it’s just how he feels. He did tell me the doctor was slowly taking him off the Adderall (I think misty because his AA sponsor told him he is not technically sober on Adderall) & for the first time in the last 2 months he sounds a little like himself again, even telling me he doesn’t know what he is doing. But then he calls again & sounds like Adderall Jerk. I’m at a loss, I love him and am willing to do what it takes to put our marriage back together. Is this normal behavior when coming off this crud? How long does it take before you feel normal again? We live in different states now so it’s only phone calls.

    Thank you Sean Im pretty much on my knees constantly praying for a Miracle. He said his doctor was slowly taking him off the Adderall at the beginning of January & it’s just been the last few days he seems to act like himself again, he has even questioned the decisions he has made. But then he turns around and acts like Adderall Jerk again. Do you know if that is normal behavior when getting off this stuff?

    I’m new to this site so please bare with me I have been married 4yrs to a man who is a recovering alcoholic and last April his doctor put him on Adderall. His whole personality has changed, he told me he doesn’t love me the way he should and doesn’t want to be married to me anymore. We have known each other since we were kids and when we finally got together after 35 years apart it was like a miracle had happened. We were very close and we loved each other so much, everyone around us could feel the love and respect we had for each other. Then in November he told me he was done and didn’t want to be married to me, it was a shock!! I felt like I was hit by a train!! I knew he was distant and even told him back May that I thought the Adderall was affecting him and we weren’t as close. He was starting a new job so he didn’t want to give it up. Now we live in 2 different states & all I want is for my Loving kind husband to come back. I pray he gets off the Adderall and realizes the mistakes he has made. Has this happened to anyone else? Is there hope?
