    It may have combined with my mild narcolepsy to make the drowsiness way worse, but not sure. I left a message with my doc to see if I could switch to something else that isn't as bad.

    trazadone makes me feel extremely weird and doesn't actually seem to do much for sleeping

    i dunno if it does stuff like that but it's defintely an exceedingly unpleasant drug. the best sleepin' pill, in my experience, are straight up unisoms. unless you wanna take antipsychotics and sleep like a rock for 16 hours.


    yep hello this is me

    or it was before i got sick of sleeping forever and feeling like a zombie afterward.

    i never take sleepin' pills unless i've been taking adderall or something, and unisom always knocks me out despite that

    also i'm thinking about taking bong hits and getting some beefy five layers, good idea y/n

    if you're a kinda big guy or you have a particularly fast metabolism it's possible the doc didn't account for that properly

    because i've never heard of someone not being affected by amphetamines at an above-threshold dose

    my insurance provider has suddenly decided that it won't cover adult ADHD medication, as a rule

    so now i can't try and fill my adderall until i go back to my doctor and, i guess, take a more exhaustive ADHD exam and he sends in all the paperwork to make the argument that it's medically necessary

    this is lame, worst case is i guess that i stop taking the XR altogether and try to scrape together the cash every month for a generic tablet

    Geek what dosages did you try of d-amphetamine (Adderall)?

    My guess would be they put you on like, 5-10mg/day and you didn't feel anything so they moved on

    if you weren't feeling anything at, say, 40mg, well that is straight bullshit

    maybe this is a sign to consider living life without hardcore stimulants for everything.

    the concept of amphetamines being prescribed to people TERRIFIES me. like, yeah, i had trouble concentrating as a kid and shit too. definitely wasn't about to get my ass on adderal or something...

    though y'know, as someone who takes benzos occasionally i'm really in no position to talk. uppers in general just make me go ughhhhhh, but whatever helps you function in the real world, i suppose.

    fwiw this was a major concern of mine going in. i had no intention of being prescribed anything. after getting a cat scan, my GP finally referred me to a psychiatrist who suggested the diagnosis. if anything i had to be talked into looking at amphetamines.

    i don't take adderall when i'm sick or on the weekends to party or to cope with social anxiety or anything. it's something i do because i had symptoms that made me a shitty and quasi-useless person, and those are alleviated when i'm on adderall.

    but sure, i've given it some thought. insofar as it's possible to have a good grip on a substance that has effects as dramatic as these, i don't feel especially unhealthy in how i view them.

    i'm trying to think of a noncontroversial way to say i think amphetamines are unnecessary

    because it makes me really sad people are being told they can't function without them. i'm not denigrating ADD or anything, but i know plenty of people who have been on adderall since they were kids and they're literally junkies, growth probably stunted, a little psychosis from all the stimulants, and it's just so goddamn sad

    because i feel like with the right prompting and context and stuff they could have become productive normal folk without hard-ass drugs

    don't wanna offend anyone or diminish the difficulty of ADD, but doctors are really quick to diagnose it and solve problems with stimulants and it's a pretty awful precedent and i just wanna reccomend nobody take an script for that unless you genuinely cannot do anything without them period

    awesome, man

    i believe that is a totes reasonable way to handle it. shucks i take amphetamines like twice a month myself for random reasons. i mostly object to the way some people get addicted / falsely believe it's deffo a good thing, because the doctor did it!

    right. i have a buddy who spends a ridiculous amount of time pruning his diagnosis and trying to self-medicate and figure out which thing fits him best, and all. it's more than a little creepy and self-satisfied, to me.

    for my part, i don't really 'own' my diagnosis. it's not something i'm ok with, and it's not something that provided me relief. i didn't hear 'you have this condition' and go sweet, now i have a reason for being a dummy! the optimal solution for me is to not feel cognitively impaired. i am trying to get there by conditioning my environment- i'm going back to school, i'm choosing a cerebral career path, etc.

    hopefully i will kind of fake it until i make it. being a productive person without medication would be awesome to me, although i am not sure how realistic it is.

    There is a very, very long history of substance abuse and addiction in my family, as well as depression and suicide, so I've always been very careful to avoid addictive substances, especially pills. Pain pills destroyed my father's body, and made one of the strongest people I know into a junkie for a long time. Pills scare me.

    Especially since I have a really addictive personality. Like, cigarettes for example? I straight up will like flip the fuck out if I have to go more than a few hours without one.

    One time my friend had an amazing idea,

    this idea amounted to him taking prescription amphetamines, and then fixating his newfound cognitive abilities on smoking weed.

    "I would be sitting there and my brain would just be like 'YO. GET. REALLY REALLY HIGH.' So I fucking smoked a ton."
    "Jesus dude did you do anything else when you were on that shit or?"
    "No. Just smoked. A load of weed. So much weed."
