My usual dosage remains the same as 10 months ago at 2.5 mgs.-5 mgs. almost every day. This is very small dosage but enough to give me focus without becoming overfocused which can prevent multitasking. I do not feel like I am on speed or stimulated, its more of a "normal person" calmness that we ADD'ers do not naturally have. I try to take days off when I know being focused is not a priority and usually have no problems and still feel good. I believe being on small dose does not block normal emotions and make me feel medicated. I have good and bad days like everyone else, smile and laugh along with being sad and able to shed a tear depending on life events as they happen. Acne cleared up after couple months and sleep is fine.
The job I was able to get last year, I believe thanks to Adderall, is going great, its a multitasking position in human services field. I still do not hate waking up and/or dreading Monday mornings anymore. I have a pretty good routine that I am comfortable with compared to my former life where routine was non-existent due to ADD racing mind and disorganized thinking. I eat and drink properly now but still notice the appetite suppresant effects of Adderall. Would I recommend Adderall? ABSOLUTELY!
I hope this blog has helped somebody, it has helped me by writing about going from a confused and anxious grown man to a calm and productive part of society. This is great when I feel down because I can refer back to my first posts and remember how bad my life actually was. Of course I did not write this for the money, but, if you click on the ads on the page I get a couple cents, not that its much but since my pay is low every penny can help us stay current on bills. Thank you for reading and wishing you all the best.
