> I have taken both Adderall and Ritalin altho im not prescribed to them. I am in High school and have taken them in excess. I find Adderall more pleasant with no confusion at all unlike ritalin. They both help with concentration, motivation to do work, and socialization, altho my doses were mostly higher than most kids eg.. 6 10mg tablets of ritalin and 4 10mg tabs of adderall. Adderall seemed much longer lasting and didnt have a crash like ritalin did. I reccomend Adderall tho because it put me in a better mindset than ritalin.

> > I also take Adderall, find it very helpful and very smooth in action. The only long-term side-effects I know of is tolerance, and the need to raise the dosage because of this. I also know many people don't experience tolerance or addiction. I have been known to forget my Adderall on the weekends and anytime I get to busy to remember, and I haven't experienced any negative symptoms either from withdrawal nor when I take it again.

> > The way Adderall works feels so completely different than Ritalin, I would hate for anyone to be on Ritalin without having tried Adderall. The appetite suppressant affect is way less with Adderall, which is a good thing in my book, especially when treating children. Although, everyone is different, disclaimer ya'know. I'm glad it's working for you. Any other questions, just holler.

WHEN MY HUSBAND FOUND ME AND GOT ME TO THE HOSPITAL MY BLOOD PRESURE WAS OUT OF CONTROL AND MY HEART WAS PUMPING SO FAST THE DOCS THOUGHT IT WOULD EXPLODE,I TORE UP MY STOMACH LINING, PERMANATELY DAMAGED MY HEART AND MY NERVES AND AM VERY LUCKY TO BE ALIVE I WAS 25 YEARS OLD AND WILL PAY FOR THAT FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!
I WANTED TO SHARE THIS WITH YOU AS A WARNIING THAT TAKING THIS MED WITH OUT A DOCTORS CARE OR NOT FOLLOWING THE DOC DIRECTIONS IS VERY DANGEROUS AND CAN EFFECT THE REST OF YOUR LIFE

I AN NOT SUGESTING TO YOU ,FREAKY ,THAT YOU ARE AN ADDICT ONLY YOU CAN DECIDE THAT BUT IF YOU EVER FIND YOU NEED HELP YOU HAVE MY EMAIL ADDRESS
