I could not believe that feeling of being able to concentrate could boost my self-esteem. My anxiety level has increased to some degree but but the pros out weight the cons.

I am an adult male who was diagnosed this past summer. I have been taking this for about 3 months at 5mg twice a day.

Pre-Adderal...anxiety, frustration, mind always go ... Show Full Comment

My son just started a few months ago on Adderall 15mg, before he his doctor tried many other drugs but nothing seemed to work. Since he has been on this medication he can stay focused at school and home. His sleeping is fine, the only problem is getting him to eat!! But I found pedia sure helps him balance a healthier diet.
