Do you recommend Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) for fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue? My fatigue is way worse to deal with then pain.

Check thyroid: I see many patients with fibromyalgia with fatigue that is due, at least in part, to low thyroid. If you do start thyroid treatment, start at a very low dose and work up slowly because I have seen that many patients with fibromyalgia are very sensitive. Thus they may have symptoms with what appears to be mild hypothyroidism and sensitive to treatment if started too fast. ...Read more

I was prescribed Amitriptaline and Buspar (buspirone) and already take Adderall. I have Fibromyalgia and Adrenal Hyperactivity and I'm nervous about Serotonin Syndrome. Are these safe together?

I was prescribed Amitriptaline and Buspar (buspirone) and already take Adderall. I have Fibromyalgia and Adrenal Hyperactivity and I'm nervous about Serotonin Syndrome. Are these safe together?

Serotonine: I am sorry you have to worry about side effects of several medications. It appears that the only medication that could cause a serotonergic syndrome is the Amitryptiline at high dosages. Buspar (buspirone) is less likely to cause this syndrome and Adderall belongs to a different category and would not cause serotonergic syndrome. ...Read more

Is vasoconstriction caused by Adderall temporary or permanent?

Is vasoconstriction caused by Adderall temporary or permanent?

Temporary: Adderall is cleared quickly by the body and the vasoconstriction would resolve after clearance.

I went from taking Vyvanse30mg @ 8am & 2pm to taking AdderallXR40mg @ 8am & AdderallIR10mg @ 2pm. Adderall did little to nothing. Any idea why?

It depends.: If you're taking the stimulants for ADD/ADHD, the expected results would be an improved concentration and focus, improvement in hyperactivity, being able to accomplish tasks better. What difference did Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and Adderall have? I would recommend that you discuss this with your doctor who could make adjustments. ...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
