What does it feel like when your ritalin or Adderall wears off?

Varies a lot: Some people state they feel absolutely the same whether on or off a stimulant, even though others observe huge behavioral differences. Others definitely notice effects, good & bad, such as better attention and productivity as well as no appetite that fade as the medicine wears off. Still others have "rebound, " being irritable & even more symptomatic for awhile before returning to baseline. ...Read more

Wanted to know where can I get a drug to could you help me concentrate like Adderall or ritalin?

Doctor: You just don't "get these drugs" so you can concentrate better. These are powerful drugs that are indicated after a very thorough medical and psychological work-up that shows significant impairment in life due to the symptoms. Otherwise, good nights sleep and proper diet will work better to help you concentrate better on a day-to-day basis. ...Read more

How does strattera compare with drugs like Adderall and ritalin?

How does strattera compare with drugs like Adderall and ritalin?

Works for some: Another drug, that works well for some people, & doesn't work for others. In my expereience it doesn't work as often as the stimulant meds, but if people can't tolerate the stimulants, it is nice to have this option. It does need to be taken on an increasing dose over about a month. If it does work, it works most of the day from just one dose. Like an antidepressant, you need it in your system. ...Read more

Why would a doctor prescribe my friend Vyvanse when he has heavily abused Adderall ritalin and illegal amphetamines like cocaine and meth ?

Why would a doctor prescribe my friend Vyvanse when he has heavily abused Adderall ritalin and illegal amphetamines like cocaine and meth ?

UNINFORMED: I would wonder if your "friend" has been honest about the medications that have been abused. Vyvanse is a prodrug and is not active if snorted ot injected. Still it is an amphetamine. Your friend will eventually be caught as there are more and more externally systems that monitor for doctor shopping and drug abuse. ...Read more

What are the differences in dosage between ritalin and adderall, to achieve the same effects?

Rough estimate below: D-amphetamine (dexedrine) is about twice as potent as methylphenidate (ritalin), so 10 mg of the former is roughly the same as 20 mg of the latter. Adderall is a mixture of 1/2 d-amphetamine plus 1/2 d- & l-amphetamine (the latter being inactive with respect to adhd. So, conversion from Ritalin to Adderall is about 20 mg down to 15 mg. But, individual response varies, so that's just a start. ...Read more
