I have read reports that long term Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) abuse can cause permanent dopamine damage. Would taking 30mg Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) a few times a month do same thing?

Can a lot of stress cause major depression or amphetamine abuse for someone who is bipolar and on meds for it?
Not exactly: Stress does not cause major depression or amphetamine abuse, but bipolar people can become depressed, & amphetamine abuse can destabilize someone with bipolar disorder. Often substance abuse leads to disrupted sleep cycles, & forgetting to take mood stabilizing medications -- thus worsening the illness. Recovery programs for drug abuse and talk therapy to learn to deal with life stresses, help.

Taking one a day, you would then be able to lower the dose with time. Provigil will likely offer you no benefit and may worsen the effects of stopping adderall.See 1 more doctor answer
