shula - November 5

Hi everyone , is anybody taking this drug for fibro and how do you feel? How bad are the side effects?



Noca - November 6

There is two threads about Adderall and my experiences with it. Try searching them for more info. Too lazy to rewrite it all.


Stacey373 - November 7

Hi shula - I'm not sure if you looked up the other posts about this I will keep this short in case you've already read it all.

Adderall is a SERIOUS controlled substance. My daughter takes it for ADHD and it has been a miracle drug for her. Adderall slows her down and helps her concentrate. BUT...if you don't have that chemical imbalance in your has an opposite reaction. It's basically legal speed for people who aren't taking it for the "right" reasons.

I'm not sure if you pay attention to the "celebrity gossip" stuff...but Lindsay Lohan was just arrested for having Adderall on her...because she was using it as an "upper."

The doctors keep a very tight control on this medication....for example...I can't just call my daughter's refill in to the pharmacy and pick it up. I have to call it in and talk to someone in person at the pharmacy (not the automated system) then they call the doctor....then I have to personally pick a hard copy scrip up from the doctor's office and sign for it with ID and then I can take it to the pharmacy to have it filled.

Basically what I'm trying to say is that you shouldn't be taking this medication for just anything....especially for energy because of Fibro. I'm not sure why some doctors are prescribing this to Fibro patients...the other person who asked about this medication eventually told us that he did have ADD/ADHD problems. So maybe you do too?

I just want everyone to be aware of what this medication is and what it does. If you have any more questions about this...feel free to ask and I will try to answer them! Take Care, Stacey :o)
