Mmmm. No adderall for me today. Taking a day off from it.

Whee addiction.

So far it's not so bad. Just... very mild "can't sit still" + slightly sweaty and omfg I'm hungry as fuck.
Hrm. Can't sit still. WOW! ADHD symptoms!
What are those? I've not felt this in a while...

Oh look at that.. shiny!

Adderall. The medication I take for ADHD.

It's a combination of 4 different amphetamine salts.

I take an extended release version known as XR, 30 mg of it per day. Lasts roughly 10-12 hours. I've tried a number of different stimulant based meds, and this one is the best so far. It's awesome stuff. I can actually FUNCTION in life .. remember to do stuff .. pay attention to what people are saying when I'm listening.

*scratches his head* OKay, well, what negative effects does it have on the body? With meds, I've noticed, it's like that Law of Newton's, For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

I wouldn't say there are laws of physics here.

Some people seem to have this ingrained belief that all medications develop tolorance over time, or that there are always negative side effects. This is simply not the case.

Someone injecting insulin when they are diabetic, for example. It's making up for something that there is a deficiency to. There are no negative side effects if it's dosed correctly, and there are no tolorances to build.

That being said, adderall does have it's side effects. It kills my appetite and gives me the metabolism of a crack baby. You think I'd be 10% bodyfat with what I eat? Hah. It also has a comedown period afterwards in the evenings where I get a little irritable. But .. it's not so bad as with other meds like say.. ritalin. That stuffs an emotional rollercoaster. Adderall is pretty f'n clean though ... very crisp. No dirtyness, no real after effects. Oh, mild addiction. There is that. It's amphetamines ... you take it every day, you bet it'll cause some addiction. But at this dosage, there's nothing severe. I've been taking it for 6 months now and I can quit any time. It'll suck for about a week if I do. *shrugs* Why quit though?
