After taking the Adderall 20mg XR, by the afternoon I'm falling into a anxiety slump. Is this normal?

by Warren

Hey John,


I was wondering if it took some time to adjust to your meds or had to increase or change your dosage because I'm finding over the last couple of days taking the Adderall 20mg XR that by the afternoon I'm falling into a anxiety slump which persists. Furthermore I'm not sleeping as well and by morning I'm waking up at 6am and feel restless. Then I take my meds again and feel well for about 6 hours and the symptoms repeat. I know your not a doctor but thought you might shed some light on this.

Adderall will only last for about 6 - 8 hrs.

Hi Warren,

I understand the feeling. Adderall will only last for about 6 - 8 hrs.

Therefore, I take Adderall 25mg from 7am - 3pm (lasts for 6-8hrs). This is a 6hr pill. Then I add the Dexedrine 10mg from 3pm - 8pm (last for 4-6hrs). This is a 4hr pill.

By the afternoon, the Adderall is done. That's why your body has little energy.

The market is working on a ADD medication at will last 10-12hrs. Not in Canada yet.
