Can prolonged use of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR cause or contribute to adrenal failure?

Can prolonged use of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR cause or contribute to adrenal failure?

No Adrenal Failure: Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) or other stimulant medications do not cause adrenal failure (a serious life threatening disorder). In the popular magazines they talk about "adrenal fatigue" which ahas a variety of symptoms. There is little support in the science literature of this "syndrome". If you have symptoms that you have not had before, talk with your doctor and see if a workup is necessary. ...Read more

Is there a difference between focalin (dexmethylphenidate) XR and Adderall xr?

Is there a difference between focalin (dexmethylphenidate) XR and Adderall xr?

A big difference!: Focalin (dexmethylphenidate) is the active half or methylphenidate (ritalin). Adderall is a mix of amphetamine salts and of amphetamine isomers. Both can be highly beneficial for treating adhd, but they are different chemicals altogether and may work through slightly different mechanisms. If one doesn't work or has too many side effects, the other may prove better--and it doesn't matter which you try first. ...Read more

Oringinally on Adderall 5mg, not strong enough. Switched to Adderall 10mg bid, now to Adderall XR 10mg bid. How will this effect me? What dif will i c

Smoother Effect: Short-acting stimulants have a rapid on/off effect. At their peaks they can be too powerful and are prone to wearing off before you remember to take the next dose. These surges and falls can be both exciting and anxiety producing. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) xr has sprinkles which act like well-timed doses that pick up where the last left off. They are designed to better fit with your day - once daily (not bid). ...Read more

For over 5 yrs i was prescribed both Adderall XR 30mg and Xanax (alprazolam) 1mg by fam dr. Now seeing diff dr and he said these 2 meds no good together?

True: Everyone is different, but generally these medications work at cross purposes, as Adderal is a stimulant and xanax (alprazolam) is a sedative. The concern is that neither will work as well as it should, and you will have more side effects than with either alone. It is hard to switch tracks after 5 years but I would give your new doctor a chance ...Read more

Both for ADD, what would be the differences between, from Adderall XR to Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) ? Is Vyvance worth the try over Adderall XR ?

I am taking Adderall XR for a month now from 10 mg and increasing to 30 mg. However I have been having too many side effects, will ritalin (methylphenidate) la help?

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

Wellbutrin (bupropion) XL 300mg daily & 40mg of Adderall XR . My doctor wants to wean me off the Wellbutrin (bupropion) eventually. Is this because off an interaction?

Wellbutrin (bupropion) XL 300mg daily & 40mg of Adderall XR . My doctor wants to wean me off the Wellbutrin (bupropion) eventually. Is this because off an interaction?

There really: Isn't any significant interaction. But to be honest, why not just inquire with your doctor why the desires to taper you off of the Wellbutrin (bupropion). As you are better just going to the source rather than possible guesses. Remember to always be your own patient advocate and always make sure that you are key part of your own care! Best of luck. ...Read more
