Wears off quickly NEW
by: Anonymous

In response to the person that asked if adderall effects last only about 3 hours, I experience the same thing. I'm at the height of the stimulant effect of the medication at about the 2 hour mark, which gives me the craving to take more to maintain that. That doesn't end up working though. It's elusive & you're chasing the air. I come crashing down at about 4 hours & can barely stay awake. I can literally take 50 mg of adderall and fall asleep when I come crashing down from it. It's a vicious cycle. It helps me much of the time but I take it more for mood enhancement than attention I think. I definitely have ADD though. I have ALL the symptoms!

My opinion
by: Shannon

I have taken aderall for 7 years now. I am 43 years old. I was diagnosed with major clinical depression at a young age. I also take the antidepressant celexa. I don't have insurance so I take the regular tablets. I take 3 20 mg. Tablets a day. I
Really believe that this is the right medication for me but I find that within almost 3 hours the effects start wearing off. Is there anyone out there who could comment on this?

A cardiologist told me that they are preparing themselves for an epidemic of premature heart disease due to millions of children taking stimulants that cause damage to heart muscles which leads to heart disease.
Some helpful tips:
eat natural whole organic food
have yourself tested for heavy metal toxicity
have an amino acid panel done. Certain amino acids can really help with ADHD symptoms.
