I was diagnosed with ADHD as a child and my mom tried to treat me at first but when I told her I didn't feel right she stopped. I've not been diagnosed with Adult ADHD. I have been given Adderall 20mg IR (generic) I've already have been taking Tramadol 3

Your are right t ask: ADHD has to be diagnosed before age 10 y/o to meet adult ADHD criteria. If so, Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) gen is a good option. 20 mg might be sufficient. Tramadol has no direct effect on ADHD. How old are you now?. What is your occupation?.

I began taking Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) to treat ADHD about 4 months ago & i've never had an issue with acne till now! i drink plenty of water, what else can I do?

Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and acne: First, relax. Life is short. Second, Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) usually doesn't cause acne, so this is probably just...Acne. Go see your friendly neighborhood dermatologist and get diagnosed properly.

Possible for ADHD meds to cause coffee to have opposite effect on the body? Before ritalin (methylphenidate) and adderall, coffee gave energy but now it's the opposite.

Possible for ADHD meds to cause coffee to have opposite effect on the body? Before ritalin (methylphenidate) and adderall, coffee gave energy but now it's the opposite.

Ritalin (methylphenidate) vs caffeine: Ritalin (methylphenidate) releases Dopamine in the front part of the brain. Caffeine does to a limited degree as well. Now that your Dopamine is being released in greater amounts by Ritalin (methylphenidate) you are unable to feel any effect from the caffeine . Caffeine also has an effect on adenosine. This is our compound in the body that causes us to feel sleepy. What you're feeling is the caffeine crash that occurs after the caffeine wears off and Adenosine has a chance to build up again.Meanwhile Ritalin (methylphenidate) continues to mask any of caffeine's effect on the Dopamine receptors in the frontal part of the brain. Best wishes. ...Read more
