has anyone ever dealt with adderall not working anymore? i even went off of it for a while and started concerta but back on adderall due to that failing and im just so confused. like it used to make me focus so well and it honestly made me feel really really happy while i was on it and now its exhausting cause my adhd seems to be getting worse. i also have worried abt being misdiagnosed as i haven’t heard others (that actually have adhd) say they felt euphoric on it but i have had all the adhd symptoms my entire life.

      I can't take Adderall because it worsens my tics

      I have read of issues of Adderall lowering the baseline dopamine in the brain over long term use, which is seemingly what causes tolerance to it. It may be good to switch over to something completely different?

      My 60mg is hardly working. I don't have much options anymore. Doctors are so afraid to prescribe higher dosages. It sucks!

      perhaps a different type of med might help? such as a different ADHD med (I think Wellbutrin and Ritalin are examples of that)

      yes, we’ve tried both of those and neither really helped much

      Has your prescriber tried upping dose or changing like from xr to non xr or combining that in appropriate doses, etc?
