Emotional Affects of Adderall

by Katie
(Ohio)

I take 20 mg of adderall to help me in school, and before i was put on adderall i had concerta, concerta made me depressed so i tried something new, and now adderall is having the same emotional affects on me, i feel like never talking with anyone, i have a low tolerance for anyone asking me questions when im trying to focus. ex. if im sitting on the computer after school and my dad asks how my day was; i react as leave me alone! its almost like this drug is taking my emotions away. Very strange and uncomfortable cause im not myself. Ive thought of a lower dose but 20 mg isnt that much.

Not Uncommon Effects
by: TJ Chambers

These kind of effects are common with stimulant drugs. If you would like to learn what effects they have on people, study drugs like speed.

Stimulants are that, legal speed.

Talk to your parents and your doctor about it. Because drugs make people feel this why, I try to help by teaching the natural way to reduce ADHD symptoms.

The underlying issue is not be addressed with the medication, it only covers it up but makes things worse.
