Heres my story: condensed... been taking adderall on and off for the past 9 yrs.
Over the first 4 yrs it was only occasionally, maybe once or twice a month to party with an ex boyfriend.
For the past 3 yrs ive taken phentermine on/off that i get from shady diet clinics(im not overweight).
But for the last yr, a friend of mine has been prescribed adderall which ive been buying and taking. And before i knew it, it spiraled out of control.
Before I could take pills here and there, but the past few months it got to where I took one just to wake up, and then a few thru the day, and than xanax to ease the come down and to sleep.
Its a vicious cycle.
Im on my third day cold turkey which i know isnt a big step, but i still have about 20 (30 mgs) in my room and even a few on me right now and I ALMOST took one today at work when I was feeling extrmemly miserable but i resisted.
Side effects from coming off the pills so far are: tiredness, depression, excessive hunger.
BUT, the tiredness comes and goes, (ive exercised every night this week which i never really did when i took adderall), and the tiredness comes in waves but its nothing to bad. I am tryin to control the eating but
i find i crave carbs and sweets badly. But if i put on a few pounds hopefully my new found love for running will burn off the calories.
To everyone here trying to get off adderall or any other stimulants, stay strong!!
