Coming Off Adderall
Coming off Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) abuse- self medicated fatigue problem. Would something like provigil be a bad idea?
Probably: But another solution would be to talk with your psychiatrist about switching to a slow-release, once-daily stimulant like vyvanse, Adderall xr, concerta, Focalin (dexmethylphenidate) xr, or their generic equivalents.
