    Could you maybe explain to people how after two years of quitting you went back? Why did you? Did you instantly regret it? We're your problems resolved by starting again or just get worse? I'm not trying to judge but just like to gain insight to identify any future thoughts of getting back on after quitting for so long. Only antidepressants I'd recommend is also Wellbutrin from personal experience.
  2. Fatigue and brain fog common and last for months or years for heavy long term users like myself. The other symptoms do not really come up much I've seen maybe something else going on. Since your a dietitian assume you eat healthy to me that's one of the most important things. Im personally doing keto myself seems to help a lot.
  3. How to Cut Doctor Off - Advice Needed

    Big step to take best thing is to just tell him your abusing and don't want anymore how I did it. At least now healthcare in a huge freaking mess a lot of people loosing coverage won't be able to afford doctor visits and prescriptions. My only concern is the millions on adderall with healthcare taken away might seek out a cheaper route like meth on the streets.
  4. Ketogenic Diet for Energy and Mental Clarity

    Worse anxiety ever felt in my life was after taking a SSRI for a few days. They say it gets better, what after the self-inflicted lobotomy takes its course? The bathroom problems, heartburn and urges to cut myself really made me research what the hell I was taking. Wish I did research before trying them but like you was desperate to find anything that could help. Quitting is a struggle no doubt just keep doing one day at a time.
  5. Ketogenic Diet for Energy and Mental Clarity

    I actually enjoy cooking now just hate cleaning lol. For me I have a cheat night on the weekends but just don't go crazy with it. Never had a "keto flue" but ever since I stopped addy always limited carbs now just adding more fat to my diet vs heavy on the proteins. I wish my work ethic was strong as my diet and workout drive. Sort of obsessed with those two things but far as doing my regular work that pays the bills I'm still behind production. But figure if I keep the fitness and diet to the max eventually it should carry over to my job output. Here Iam on here again avoiding my office work think I should ground myself from social media for awhile.
  6. Hypnosis for Adderrall Cessation

    I sure thought about it hope it works for you. My aunt did that 20 years ago for smoking and never went back so it does work for some people no doubt.
  7. Ketogenic Diet for Energy and Mental Clarity

    How would adding Been on a keto diet for a couple weeks personally have not had any noticeable spike in anxiety but everybody is different for sure. I even bought some Keto supplements they are expensive but seem to help not been on it long enough time to say it's worth the investment or not. So you have a doctor who didn't push meds for anxiety ? That's a rare find these days.
  8. Anyone taken Lexapro while on Adderall?

    I'd definitely get off but you will have withdraw for sure. Lexapro is a SSRI my opinion it's a suicide pill causing worse depression vs not even having it. Wellbutrin is a NDRI I think the safest of any antidepressants any many on here quitting used it for help. But it's no miracle cure if anything most all of those meds do not make you happy it makes you feel nothing and that itself can make you more depressed. I wish a real happy pill was available but none are except pain pills man loved them but like addy it comes crashing down lol. Do your research on quitting I'm not sure if it's better to bite the bullet now or wait but either way freedom is med free and takes a lot of dedication and sacrifice to get yourself back. I wish you luck and post on here let us know how your doing.
  9. I also seen a post of the same test with mice in a different setting. The traditional test was one with a mouse normally alone in a dull cage. This other test was given in a large space with multiple mice with the best food available multi exercise options plenty of natural sunlight. They found the mice living in a good mouse community staying active actually avoided the water with cocaine. If I find it again I'll share the link. But the main thing to take away stay active, eat right and be around people ( good people) . If you stay isolated indoors no exercise that's when your brain craves drugs the most.
  10. Exercise and Soreness

    I think creatine does help rebuild muscle tissue faster but be sure to drink plenty of water also. I do normally one day weights next day cardio. Giving your body a day between the weight training helps muscle recover time. Your tearing and rebuilding muscle tissue have to let it have that recovery time.
  11. Doctors do not demonize SSRI medications but they should. The sucide risk are very high says it even on the bottle doctors tell patients it's only in very very rare cases. Complete bs doctors care less just quick "fixes" and commissions. Doctors do not care about health they do very little education on any prevention it's only after something happens they claim to have a cure. But normally the cure has so many horrible side effects it leaves you in a worse place. Just listen to commercials for any new drug the hits the market none of them sound like anything I'd ever want to take after hearing the disclaimer. But yet doctors always tell people those risk are very very rare it surely won't happen to you. But of course if it does the doctor will say you knew it had some side effect risk your one of the "rare" ones. People are quick to donate buy a ribbon or whatever to support cancer research. That money goes to pharmaceutical research labs there's a profit based system. Prevention is not their priority finding a drug they can get someone by that will cost a lot is their main goal . How about spending that money towards cancer prevention research? Why did I quit? Because I was poising my body and knew it from day one. Has quitting resolved my issues? Well I'm not dead pretty sure the direction I was heading so yes guess it has. If your so gullible to think anyone with ADD or not should have amphetamines daily then you are just overlooking the obvious. I looked up some listed side effects with amphetamines does not even include the long term stuff we deal with. Of course most side effects by the drug companies all claim "rare" "incidence not known" they say these things to give a false sense of security. Must people feel we won't be that one that's someone else, but the reality is if they did testimg for more than one month to get passed by the FDA I'm sure these side effects sure wouldn't be so rare. The term "Incidence not known" definition 'They know it happened but they didn't keep count. These are usually the ones where a few people have reported it, but nothing was found in controlled studies.' That's is bullshit many reported it but drug companies deny it since it did not show in their studies for the FDA Here is a list from the drug companies about amphetamines ... Rare Seeing, hearing, or feeling things that are not there severe mental changes Incidence not known Agitation blurred vision confusion diarrhea dizziness false or unusual sense of well-being fast, irregular, pounding, or racing heartbeat or pulse fever headache nervousness overactive reflexes pounding in the ears restlessness shakiness in the legs, arms, hands, or feet shivering slow or fast heartbeat sweating talking or acting with excitement you cannot control trouble sleeping twitching, twisting, or uncontrolled repetitive movements of the tongue, lips, face, arms, or legs uncontrolled vocal outbursts or tics (uncontrolled repeated body movements) Get emergency help immediately if any of the following symptoms of overdose occur while taking amphetamine: Symptoms of overdose Abdominal or stomach cramps dark-colored urine dizziness, faintness, or lightheadedness when getting up suddenly from a lying or sitting position fainting muscle cramps or spasms muscle pain or stiffness nausea seizures sweating unusual tiredness or weakness ( I do want to say I know not all doctors are money hungry ignorant pricks who don't care. Actually have a good friend who is a doctor does a lot of good just spent months in Iraq volunteering helping out victims of war. Now in Florida helping with the hurricane and about to heat to Puerto Rico . He won't even take aspirin if he has a headache, never use a antibiotics saw him at home sick for weeks told him take some damn antibiotics he said no it will pass. I'm sure his patience probably hate him he would hardly ever prescribe anything unless it's the absolute last option.)
  12. Guilt Ridden

    If you gave it to him after you quit then you should feel guilty and sorry anybody on here holding pills after you quit and hand them out to "friends" you are a pos. Before you quit u thought then it was the answer like all of us. Help him do what? Clean his house? Organize his homework not sure what your saying he wants you to do? If he needs help quitting sure definitely give 100% effort but if he needs you to be his mommy clean up his mess screw that tell him what's up and he should quit like you did.
  13. Great things about not taking adderall

    Money I save from filling scripts and doctors visits not to mention kicking my pain pill habit at the same time which was very expensive.
  14. Almost 4mo off and miserable

    I thought about selling buisness also but stuck with it glad I did not. It's seems harder in some ways to do this when u call your own shots nobody looking over your shoulder holding you accountable . But I have no employees that might make a difference in your case you have to not just worry about yourself. Good luck with whichever direction you go given your pretty low dosage and time on it you should get back on track quicker than most of us who were up to 60+ mg a day for multiple years. Not saying it makes it easier what your going through but it should not last as long hopefully.
  15. Think this is inspiring story for us all after his downfall of getting caught up in this drug and busted in a drug test 3 yrs later now a top ranked players and drug free.
