Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine): Talk to your provider about changing to a different medication. If you use it as a stimulant to help maintain wakefulness, use of something different like Modafinil or Armodafinil may help. You also may need to be further evaluated for a sleep disorder.
