It only helps you if you have DIAGNOSED add/adhd. I know from personal experience. DO NOT, AND I REPEAT DO NOT, fuck around with adderall. It used to work for my add/adhd, but in my later years, it just amplified the effects of my disorder. It's mostly for children tbh, and should really not be used for young adults/adults unless there are certain circumstances
>>734167401 This. Also, yeah, you don't feel the need to eat, but I would say it's important to eat whilst taking addy. Treat it like the limitless drug. Take it in the mornings and remember to eat and stay hydrated.
>>734167470 are you outta yo got damb mind? it fucks children up and I don't know why anyone would be stupid enough to put their kids on it. I started in middle school and spent most of my time in highschool repairing the damage done because of it.
To answer your question op, I think it makes social anxiety much, much worse when used in "therapeutic" add doses. When you abuse it (like I did later on in HS) it definitely helps and will make you talk nonstop.
>>734167470 >It only helps you if you have DIAGNOSED add/adhd. OP here. I was, but so were a ton of other kids. I'm a young adult now, and I don't really take it anymore. I've always had a super low dose though.
>It's mostly for children tbh, and should really not be used for young adults/adults unless there are certain circumstances Yeah, the circumstance is that I have a presentation. I'm thinking about taking 3 times the dose I was used to so that I can counteract the stage fright.
it increases your attention span, makes you have extremely good reflexes/reaction time, makes you read faster, helps anxiety and depression, but also gives you a headache and destroys your appetite, i've used it 3 times
>>734167117 I have a RX for 60mg a day (2 XR30mgs a day) I'm still overweight, I actually have gained weight. I still have bad social anxiety, but it's noticeably better when I'm on it. Downside is that it's raised my blood pressure substantially. It helps with many other issues I have hence the high dosage. I was on 90mg all last year.
Adderall will KILL your appetite. Depending how many mg you take, you might not eat for an entire day.
I'm prescribed 20mg but I only take them when I absolutely need to focus. Like if I'm on a 15 hour shift at work. I make sure to eat a big meal first.
As for the socializing... It could go both ways. I have bad social anxiety. When I'm on adderall I don't shut the fuck up. So I'm in a situation where I can't stop talking but hate it because all eyes are on me.
I used to take it on school for hard core studying for houses on end furing finals. I take it now every now and then when I'm at a conference and need to be awake all day and talk to people. It's great when you span it out and take it properly. It is speed tho so its fucked up to take it every day
if ur presenting in front of your peers consider them drones, its the people marking your work you need to impress rehearse your presentation out loud a few times and make that shit good. the better it is the more confidence you'll have consider including a couple of icebreakers. maybe a dry professional joke to warm up the audience but for fucks sake you're not a stand up comedian, only make a joke if it will work with the type of presentation you have to give or provide a chart/infographic/diagram/photo early on which will attract the audience's eyes for a while and draw them into the presentation
also, consider going up to the markers and telling them that they've got to pick on someone to go first, tell them to pick you first but make it look like it was random. go first, set the bar high, then sit down and relax, enjoy the presentations of your classmates,.
Vyvanse here adderal isn't amazing at all doesn't do much built resistance within 3 month cut appetite a little doesn't help with anxiety but put your blood pressure so high you will be angry at every little fucking thing I guarantee it son
life long needed user here. I take a high dose, and when you do, you have to overcome the side effects, and if you can, Its a super human pill and you become an alert ninja who never needs to eat and can go as long as you want without sleep so long as always on the dose, in between wearing off it doesnt disapear completely, but you will notice your abilities fall, take time release high doses and conquer its insane strain on your brain and you can use its power for whatever you want. its an awesome wonder drug for anyone with enough will power to take it at high enough doses. once you hit 30 and up get ready for a slipper slope of more and more boosted mental abilities, reflexes and endurance. it effects different people at different extremes. for me it rocks my fucking world. I have severe adhd though so i need it as im a fucking mental failure without it shamefully.
Ive taken more than 60 mg before they had me take mulitple pills and i became one with the fucking adderal since i was like 6/7 and it sculpted me into a machine, Eventually it can take your humanity. Its the way of the future unless your a pussy and cant handle it. I was raised with it, it nursed me like a late bloomed cub and taught me a world of next level operating, i was forced to real in the side effects and become a meth master with only the pros and none of the cons. and what have i done with it? not much. i have this infinite motivation and all i want to do with my life is publish mangas lol i aint becoming a doctor or somthing useful fuck that im using it for self gain and leaving cool shit behind. buy my mangas, will be out around 2021 at this rate.
>>734167117 it may worsen your social anxiety. Adderall can give you a bit of confidence, amphetamines do that, but it can also make you more paranoid especially with prolong use. Also if you take adderall in a binge for day or more you will experience a crash when you stop taking it that will cause depression like symptoms, if you already suffer from depression you may feel suicidal.
>>734170570 I had a bunch of 20's and 10's at that time I snorted 60 mg of the get go, and took a 20mg. Waited about 15 minutes and snorted the rest, then I realized how big of a dose I took. Good times
Just take Vyvanse. It's Adderall basically but it can only be absorbed as far as your gut digest it. So it's easy up, steady plateau, then easy down.
I'm not ADHD but use it in grad school. It is basically like the peak of a strong couple of cups of coffee but sustained for 4-6 hours. Not earth shattering but it kills fatigue and keeps you feeling slightly pumped.
I take it, and it seems to make me more anxious and knocks my emotions all out of wack. Like, all of a sudden I notice more things that would normally just be mildly annoying, but they really piss me off.
I was diagnosed with adhd a month ago and prescribed 20mg a day of adderall. I only take 10 mg cause 20 makes me tweak out, but even with 10 I get really clammy hands, cotton mouth constant pissing and anxiety. That being said it does help me get school work done but Im not sure if its worth it. Friend told me that vyvanse is a lot more effective and safe. Anyone here try vyvanse? Or any other adhd meds?
I've taken adderall prescribed for a little over a year now (used it recreationally before) and here's my two cents. When you take it everyday, you don't notice it so much and it's way less awesome but if you don't take it you're going to be a zombie. It does fuck with your heart. Of you're a smoker you're going to smoke twice as much. Of you abuse it and get in a stressful situation, you won't feel like a god, it will make you focus on your panic and you'll be a mess. That's All I can think of right now but if you don't truly need it to function I'd say its best to avoid. I take it because I'm a lazy, unmotivated piece of shit. And the last thing I'll say is watch your drinking while taking it
I've taken addy since high school. It fucks with your appetite, ended up skipping lunch and dinner for the most part. Some people don't have such a strong reaction to it though. I can't shut the fuck up on amphetamines. But it does help with high pressure situations that you need to focus on.
Ex adderall user here. I've been taking it the majority of my life however I needed it when I was young and I need it now too. However as a 27 year old now, the effects and use was starting to wear off. I was having almost as bad of concentration on it as I did off it and that was at 50mg a day.
Asked my doctor to help me to try Vyvanse. Sure enough I switched to it. I pay out the ass for it, but remember the movie Limitless? Yeah its a legal form of that pill. That is if you truely have ADD/ADHD,like myself.
>>734167117 Adderall (or almost any other stim) will completely destroy your appetite. You could use it for weight loss if that's what you're thinking, but theres so many better ways & unless you also started exercising or changing your eating habits then you'll gain any weight back right away when you stop taking them.
Using it for social anxiety is a bad idea in my opinion. I mean when you start to take them you'll probably talk endlessly to anyone and everyone, but a stim-fueled sociability is alot different than just normally socializing. Theres a good chance people will notice it too.
Using it for stage fright is an even worse idea though. You'll just hyperfocus on any small mistake, which will make you even more nervous. You'll probably sweat noticeably more which will make you more nervous, which will make you sweat even more. Stimulant drugs overall are contraindicated for people with anxiety cause it just worsens any anxiety you already have. If you're that nervous, then just get some benzos.
>>734167117 I have a prescription for 10 year now for Methylphenidate because I have heavy ADHD. It's extremely similar to Addarall. You can try, but careful, the side effects can be really dangerous don't mess around with that. http://www.rxlist.com/script/main/mobileart-rx.asp?drug=adderall&monotype=rx-desc&monopage=0
>>734167117 I took Adderall for 11 years of my life. I could go a whole day without eating a thing and not feel anything. I also have social anxiety. It did not affect that. I still was a nervous wreck all the time. However, there are minor differences in how it affects people.
Perhaps it was the ADHD, but i also experienced heavy mood swings.
It makes a big difference if you are on the instant or extended release. If you actually have ADD and need the medication you should be on the extended release.
I took Concerta which was an extended release form of Adderall and now am on Vyvanse which is another extended release pill. Vyvanse is much newer and personally its side effects are less impactful than adderall.
>>734167117 OP image is exactly what I take on a daily basis. 30mg XR Adderrall. I've been prescribed it for almost exactly two years now. It's been a fucking roller coaster. My weight has dropped, my muscles have shrunk, and I have experienced a myriad of the typical symptoms: dry mouth, muscles being tight (magnesium helps wonders), shrinky dink dick (only temporary...I hope), crazy mood swings, etc. It really does help me though. Ever since I was in elementary school, my teachers would tell my parents I would "day dream" in class. I saw several specialists, I got a few different drugs, nothing seemed to help. Junior year in college, I was really struggling with upper level, non-major specific courses. I had taken Adderrall before, I scored it from friends, but only for studying before a test. It really helped me focus on a day to day basis, and I have been able to sit myself down and teach myself things I never was able to before. Technical things, like coding and software. I have also made a huge chunk of progress on my portfolio. At what cost, though? I sleep maybe 4 hours on average. I eat probably 1000 calories less than I should a day, yet my metabolism is so shitty now that it takes me a lot of work to lose any awkward weight I gain (I am built like a skeleton but develop this weird paunch if I eat too shitty). I have an increased sexual libido, which has caused other problems that will take awhile to elaborate on. In this day and age, in my industry, there is a lot of competition. I know the other guy interviewing for the same job as me is on this shit. It's so easily obtainable. In a society that values productivity over everything else, I feel obligated to take it, or suffer a life of sub-mediocrity. Whether or not it's worth it, time will tell.
>TL ; DR : Yeah I take this shit. Pros and cons aside, I have to take it if I want to succeed in a rapidly changing and developing society where everyone is on this shit.
>>734167117 I get prescribed 20mg of Adderall XR and i can say it makes my social anxiety totally go away and kills the fuck out of my appetite. I actually managed to lose about 15 pounds from it (im 150 now) but its very useful. I have ADD/ADHD and also depression and i can tell you it helps a lot.
>>734167740 I started in grade school, stopped second year of high school (shits expensive). Took a few months for me to adjust, and those months did suck, but I definitely got my shit together. Taught me real quick that I had to control my own shit.
>>734167117 >Adderall breakdown If you're using it for work, stick to the lighter doses. Since you seem to want the social up all you gotta do is crush that shit and snort it >Hunger You don't get hungry so you'll have to force yourself to eat >other?? You might get cold extremities, but you get wired af so give into the high and roll with it. Drink a lot of fluids and pee when you can cuz your liver will be thankful
>>734189037 Being an adderall user, I would suggest that this isn't for you. I don't have a very "addictive personality" (if that's a real thing, I dunno I'm not a mental health expert my any means) but I could see it being very habit forming, especially with people with those tenancies like people with depressive/anxiety disorders. I would try other options first, with speed (it's literally just speed...straight up) being a last resort.
>>734190063 Have you ever been off the internet? Any parent that has prescribed their parents methamphetamines before they hit puberty could probably recount some horror story to you. I stayed off them till college just because of a family friend who tried to claw his veins out in the bathroom during grammar school
>>734189160 I second this. lighter doses for work since the extended release or whatever can keep you up at night depending on when it's taken. Eat eat eat. Even when you don't feel like it. weight came and went when i took adderall. And yeah. drink lots of water.
