My Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) helps me immensely but it gives me blurry vision. Is this common?

Not common but: It can happen. To confirm cause, if not already done so, talk with prescriber about conducting a trial without Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) for a few days (like sat/sun) as each morning the previous day's dose should have cleared. If not tolerable prescriber may consider alternative med for you, such as methylphenidate or atomoxetine. If Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) not causative, consider optometrist. Best regards for relief. ...Read more

I'm 120 pounds and take an Adderall XR 30mg in the morning. Is it okay to take a 50mg dramamine (dimenhydrinate) at around 11pm to help me sleep?

Full Day Dosing: You will be better off if your prescriber gives you full-day dosing for your ADHD. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR lasts no longer than 12-hours and if an adult does not have a late afternoon dose of this or similar meds, they often experience a kick-back effect and have a disturbance of sleep. The late afternoon dose of short acting stimulant should drop off just before bedtime and you will sleep like a rock. ...Read more

Possibly: It depends on what side effects you are noticing. The stimulant medications are very similar and there are some effects you can see in all, such as decreased appetite. There are genetic differences in the way individuals respond to meds, even if similar, and sometimes it takes a few tries to find the one that works the best for you. ...Read more

I'm taking Cymbalta 20mg(once a day), Adderall XR 30mg, and Gilenya (fingolimod) 0.5mg. Is it safe to take these together? Especially Cymbalta & Adderall.

Comorbid LD?: The various executive brain functions (that are inefficient in adhd) respond at different doses of stimulant for different effects. Was your convergent retrieval processing tested?
