Depends : From your information it looks as if you been diagnosed with more than just adhd and that the insomnia preceded the use of adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). In general that low dose taken in the am does not usually cause sleep issues in an adult although it might aggravate existing issues. It is also contraindicated to be taking the additional meds you have listed at the same time. Need visit with provider. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
It might: Stimulants are often used to help treat disorders of excessive sleep. One potential difficulty is the possibility of becoming tolerant to the effects over time.

I have had idiopathic hypersomnia for years. OSA negative. Was prescribed Nuvigil, insurance denied it. Am on 20 mg Adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) but still fall asleep during the day for HOURS. Wake up feeling awful-HELP?
May be on wrong dose: If the adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) that you take is a tablet, then it is only designed to last 4-6 hours. So if your mornings, are super and alert but the afternoons are sleep city then you should visit with your doctor about either an xr capsule that lasts 10-12 hours or adding a second tablet about lunchtime. Nuvigil is still the rx of choice, so if your dr submits a PA with a dx of narcolepsy and the sleep study, ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Took sleep test, diagnosed w/ idiopathic hypersomnia. Take Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) & Nuvigil. Any suggestions for how to improve wakefulness w/o more meds?
Perhaps none.: Choosing a treatment for sleepiness, fatigue, narcolepsy, etc, depends upon several factors- underlying issues, related conditions, prior attempts at treatment, activity potential/level, &more. I doubt i would use Adderall at all. If med is appropriate, consider Nuvigil first; vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is another possibility. But you need expert professional help to get a solid diagnosis & optimal treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have severe ADHD & hypersomnia. I recently became pregnant. I was on adderall, nuvigil, & vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). Is anything safe to continue? I am struggling...
Prregnancy ADHD meds: I see that you have a diagnosis hypersomnia. Has this is been evaluated by an overnight polysomnogram? If it has not, that should be to make sure that the cause is not apnea which would be safely treated with CPAP in pregnancy and which is not uncommonly a cause for adhd symptoms. Unfortunately, in spite of the many years of use of adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) we do not have an adequate Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) safety registry so as to advise clearly regarding the use of adderallduring pregnancy. This will need to be discussed between you, your psychiatrist or sleep medicine physician, and your gynecologist. I wish i could provide youwith more detailed information, but unfortunately it is not available. Best wishes for a happy new year and a happy healthy baby. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Use up the calories!: Anything that uses energy (calories) will help one lose weight, as long as she DOES NOT eat or drink back more calories than she uses up. Examples: if walking, take longer route; use stairs instead of elevators; take several trips to and from the car when unloading groceries; walk the kids to school; at home skip dessert and go walk around the block instead.
