What does adderall look like
Questions and Answers
What does a prescription for adderall look like?
in detail please.
a piece of paper with the drug name wrote on it & a signature that cant be read!
What are the possible drugs that are purple/pink and a powder?
I know someone who had it, and need to know what it is.
I did not use it. I told him he shouldn't.
He said it was adderall but I looked it up and did not find any adderall that looked like that.
sounds like Cocaine too me tell your friend to stop it
I'm pretty sure that I have attention deficit disorder, but will I be able to get a perscription for adderall?
I have a history of alcoholism, I don't drink any longer, but drinking almost killed me. I ended up with "Severe Acute Necrotizing Pancreatitis," and only had a 30% chance of living. Well, as you can see I pulled through, but now i'm wondering if that ruined my chances to get help with my real problems.
I have MAJOR problems concentrating, like I can't have anything going on around me while i'm doing homework, or I flip out, and that is if I can even coherse myself into sitting down to study. I usually will get distracted while researching stuff, and end up researching something else, or doing things that are not what i'm supposed to be doing, etc.
I've done alot of research, and Adderall sounds right for me, but I have a past with addiction, plus I don't want to walk in there sounding like i'm looking for Adderall, because the doctors might think i'm just trying to get high from it...
Any suggestions on what I should do/say when I goto the Dr?
I only get 1 meeting.
You're right that you shouldn't go in there looking for Adderall. Not only that, but you shouldn't go in there with the goal of getting a particular drug period. There are a variety of medications to treat ADHD, and which drug is best for a particular patient has more to do with trial and error than his particular symptoms, so there's no way you could determine that a particular drug is best for you just by reading about it on the Internet. If you go to the doctor and tell him you think you'd benefit Adderall, it's a fair bet he won't give it to you, particularly with your history of addiction, but even without it. If, on the other hand, you go in looking for ways to deal with your ADHD symptoms, there's a good chance you'll leave with a prescription for Adderall (or another similar stimulant, such as Ritalin).
There are also non-stimulant medications (or rather medication, singular - called Strattera) for ADHD that might have less narcotic properties so doctors might be more inclined to prescribe them to someone with a history of addiction. If you really want to control your ADHD symptoms, it's worth trying whichever medications your doctor wants you to. But if you don't want a non-stimulant medication, well, Strattera is associated with an increased incidence of suicidal ideation and behavior, so your doctor will ask about having someone to watch for these things who you could tell if you had thoughts of suicide, and if you answer that there isn't anyone you who could keep an eye on you or who you'd be willing to tell, they probably won't prescribe it.
It might also help to tell your doctor that you're reluctant to take medication and stuff like that. Make it sound like you don't want the meds but are willing to try them if the doctor thinks they'll help. But don't over do it or he'll try to come up with an alternative to medication in order to respect your wishes. When it comes down to it, doctors love to prescribe meds as a quick-fix for any psychiatric problem, so if you go in there not asking for meds specifically but rather asking what his advice is to deal with it, he'll probably give you meds.
Also, if your doctor doesn't prescribe anything right away, you might want to consider being evaluated by a pscyhologist, who can then refer you to a psychiatrist. Doctors are a lot more inclined to prescribe meds for ADHD when they have a psychologist's evaluation confirming that you have ADHD and a recommendation for treatment.
Adderall question... Take a look if you've taken it before plz?
I had a big test today and a paper due. So yesterday I took 20mg (not extended release) at 4 pm. I was up until 630 am this morning, tossing and turning all night. What time would be a good time to take it so that I would still be able to fall asleep at night. I just purchased some unisome sleep tabs too for next time. Btw I only take adderall for big tests. Anyway, So the whole night my mind was racing. I was thinking about the craziest stuff, from ways to brutally murder this kid that I really hate from my past. It was so hard to stop. I litteraly had to like start taking deep breaths and really start concentrating on other things. I also was thinking about a lot of other depressing things. But this did not happen to me all day while I was on the adderall, only when I tried to go to sleep. Has this happened to anyone else?
If you are going to lecture me on how drugs are bad and I shouldn't take them unless im prescribed your basically wasting precious finger energy. So please no bad responses, b/c you won't be doing any justice, you just be wasting my time reading it and yours typing it....
Thanks for looking
Ahhh, I love my Adderall (:
I take 25 mg extended releaseee for my ADD/ADHD,
but if i don't need it for long I just use a short acting 10 or 20 mg onee.. and for me, the short acting ones only last for about 4-6 hours, whereas the extended release lasts for like 8 or 9.... So i would sugggest taking them like anywhere from 4-7 hours before you go to bed, if not earlier. (:
goooood luck! x
Is adderall an okay solution for me? if not, what else is?
about a month ago i started taking adderall from a friend who gets a script for ADD. I took it at first just to see what it would do because most of what i heard was good, even from doctors. I am 17 and regularly smoke pot (regularly means ALOT) and in the past 6 months started doing other drugs that I could find easily such as painkillers and hallucinogens.
I am very smart and I know the risk of this and i see that I am not going in the right direction but if you have ever done this you realize that even if you understand it is bad you get caught up in it anyway. I used to keep my social life away from my family but recently my mom has found out about my pot use and thinks that I might be doing harder drugs, now she is worried(i understand) and has signed me up with counselors and care managers...(you know the usual that teenagers hate) my father has a history of extreme alcoholism and this worry my parents even more.
I myself have some mental issues that i deal with, being the oldest brother of my 4 siblings gives me much responsibility and I take on even more because my dad doesn't live with us. being as my dad has so many issues that are genetically passed on such as depression, I feel like I regularly get depressed but have never been treated. Also my parents divorce happened when I was very young, so my younger siblings dont even remember it. my brothers and sister grew up with my parents always apart but I feel like this is one thing that always can get me depressed(**** now i am sad)
Okay back to my adderall question. Given my lifestyle I am wondering if this is something I should ask my counselor or doctor about. This is my last year in high school and I am applied to college for the upcoming fall my grades have never been great due to lack of motivation blah blah blah, i take honors classes and i get Bs in them because i dont want to put in work but taking adderall helps motivate me, get rid of my random onsets of depression. Also taking adderall gets rid of the desire to abuse drugs. after taking it for about a week I noticed I stopped smoking pot and didn't even
notice.(along with the pot went the harder drugs too)
I feel like looking into adderall is more of a lifestyle decision based on how my life goes.
I know that adderall is a dangerous drug in itself and I have over dosed on it while partying and know its effects. I have taking it many different ways and I realized that I like just taking it by mouth like it is supposed to be taken and them i am happy and focused for majority of the day.
When doing drugs you always want more, but adderall doesnt leave me wanting more and I feel like it could be a good way to get away from drugs and focus on schoolwork. I havent mentioned this to anyone yet because i feel like everyone who knows me will think it is just another substance that I want to start abusing but I think it might have some benefits and this is why I am asking.
-i forgot to write this up top but also I have tried to stop smoking pot and other drugs but I felt depressed, and i had 1000x nervous energy that I just couldnt handle. I couldnt do anything that required me to do something mellow for more than 5 minutes.
-Also due to my dads alcoholism I have always done my best not to drink. I have gotten a pretty good grasp on drinking and I have reached the point where i can be in a house full of people drinking and i dont feel any urge at all.(granted i will be doing something else)
holly k is right
Adderall Addiction HELP!!!?
Today was the first time I took Adderall that was about 9:30am. IT WAS GREAT!!!! LASTED ALL DAY yea I’m a usual 17yr teen a junior in high school (WITH BAD GRADES) I smoke weed almost on a regular basis. BECAUSE IT’S HARMLESS I am not afraid of getting addicted to pot. I would really like to keep taking adderall so I looked up and learned the side effects ECT....
The reason why I smoke weed is because it gets me motivated to do things School, Work, other boring things etc.. But I can’t really concentrate on it I’m to..... Giddy and have a reallll short attention span (sometimes).
Adderall is a different story.
Like today I raised my hand in class more than a few times and instead of arguing with the teacher like I normally do sober or high. I just didnt feel like arguing cause it was a waste of time. Today I wanted to do what was right by me. Which is the complete opposite of me. I did all my History, Math, Chemistry and even sat through a boring English movie that I could of easily slept through and did a English paper during lunch that wasn’t even due for a while. Just cause I wanted to do what is right for me.... also it made me wanna talk, really talk, normally I’m just kind of quiet, but today I conversed (sp) to tons of people that I don’t even know normally when they talk to me or vice versa I just don’t have anything to say, now I had tons of reasons to KEEP talking. I even felt like standing up and helping out people most of them friends.
I felt like telling people not friends but older people how I felt about Adderall, like my Counselor, Sister and maybe even my Vice Principal (who I don’t get along with at all) people that would understand what I’m going through just to get their opinions on what to do.
So far today I’ve had the usual symptoms (after coming down)
· Light headed
· Stomach ache
· Increased heart rate
· And loss of appetite (but now I am very hungry)
· And I’m sweating for no reason
My friend who does the same EXACT things I do and has done Adderall a few times said that I will not be able to go to sleep, but I feel tired, and said that these symptoms probably wont last cause it was my first time taking it.
I guess what I’m trying to say is what do I do? Not exactly what to do but tips and suggestions like who to talk to. Should I keep taking it WHY or WHY NOT?
Is this how you get addicted.?????
Thank you for any help in advance!!
Sorry for the HUGE post but that’s how easy it is for me to stay concentrated on something. Usually I wouldn’t care about spelling
Were you on Adderall when you wrote this? Excuse me for asking, but all of those random caps make me feel like you're speaking extremely fast and then yelling every now and then.
Anyway, you should stop taking it, point blank. Adderall is NOT supposed to make you all jittery and what not. It was made for ADHD, to help people calm down and focus. Obviously you are having adverse reactions to the drug.
My doctor told me that Adderall is a watered down speed. A friend of mine was put on Adderall in 2007 and now she is addicted. She looks like a methamphetamine addict. She gets so jittery that she scratches holes into her face, she started having hallucinations that shadows were all around her, she can't focus on one thing, she's lost about 150 pounds (she was a big girl, now she just looks disgusting, like she's withering away), she treats everyone like ****, she started stealing to buy it off of the street, and her teeth are rotting away.
Is that what you want? She was only 24.
And by the way, I don't find any harm in smoking weed. It's not "HARMLESS" like you say, however. It contains tar when smoked and any kind of smoke or tar acts as an irritant to your mouth, throat, esophagus, and lungs.
Just saying. It's better in a water bong or a vaporizer. Or brewed as a tea or eaten in brownies...
Can Adderall make you act irrational?
I have been taking Adderall for about a year. I like how itmade me feel and it seemed to help me concentrate. I was on two 20 mg pills a day. It seemed to make be overaly emotional. After 26 years of marriage I thought I had fallen in love with another women. i told my wife, she moved out. The other women then decided we should "just be friends."
I quickly realized what a fool I had been acting like. I stopped taking the Adderall and now looking back I can't believe I did these things. My wife is back.
Yes it can I think because it did to me too. I have narcelopsy and was prescribed Adderall XR 20 mg and I was distant, but then yet very emotional. Hard to explain. It made me think hard too on emotional issues and concentrate too much on them and I'd make things into something they weren't. Normally I'm pretty laid back and just real loving and happy, but that dosage was just making me weird. My husband couldn't stand it, lol, so I told the doc to give me regular adderall 10mg a day, and i take 5mg in the AM and 5mg in the afternoon, and it lasts long enough for me to do my job at work and it doesn't give me any crazy side effects. I have to be on it or I can't drive or do my job, so thankfully I found a good dosage. If you have to have it too, then maybe you should try a lower dosage. I can't take more then 5mg at one time or it makes me weird.
Please answer. ( seriously easy 10 points)?
