I have been taking Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) for 4yrs. I feel like I can't remember anything I study. Why is this? It helps me focus, be alert andkeep on track...

Becoming immune. You may be immune to the effects of the adderal now, so it is less effective. Maybe your dr can increase the dose, or change you to vyvanse, (lisdexamfetamine) or another drug. Dont forget your diet either- the feingold program, at feingold.Org, has helped many people with adhd, without drugs! Read more...
New or old problem? You didn't indicate whether your problem with remembering things is new or has been true even since you started the adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). Stimulants don't have a specific benefit for short-term working memory, which is where we store material we study. If it used to help but isn't any longer, then definitely worth talking to your doctor about the problem. If always a problem, may need a study coach. Read more...

I currently take three10mg doses of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) ir over the day, but I dislike the crash. Is quillivant/vyvanse less "crash"-able than Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) ir?

Yup. Adderall xr, concerta, daytrana, vyvanse, quillivant, strattera intuniv, Kapvay are longer acting. If the onset is slow, the crash is minimal. Which is right for you must be determined by you and your doctor. Focalin (dexmethylphenidate) (both forms), Ritalin sr, metadate (all forms) are shorter acting more "crashable" than above. Eating or exercising at the anticipated crash time can mitigate the symptoms some. Read more...
Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is long acting and may help with the crashing. Talk to your doctor about possible switch to a dose equivalent to what u r taking. Read more...
Yes. yes. Both Quillivant and Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) are truly extended-release formulations. They do not leave your body is rapidly as Adderall. Because of the slower tapering, people do not normally complain of the "crash" Read more...

I've taken on pill of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) (20mg) and I can't focus I've been off of it since Sunday. How long until it is flushed out of my system completely?

XR? Depends if adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) or adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) itself has a very short half life (4-6 hrs) meaning the time for half to be metabolized. XR is more like 8-12 hrs. 5 half lives means there is negligible amount left in your body so either way all of it should be gone by now if you only took one pill. Read more...

If I ran out of my Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) in and have no records of previous doctor due to not remembering her name. Can a hospital provide an emergency script?

Pharmacy. Your pharmacy has the name of the doctor that prescribed you your Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). Read more...
Their decision. I imagine the decision is one a hospital would make according to their own best practice/ethical guidelines. If they take their responsibility seriously, they might need to do their own evaluation for treatment they provide. This could be especially true w/ a drug that is often abused. I hope you've learned to keep better records from this experience. Some don't suffer severe or long withdrawal. Read more...
