I am having trouble staying awake even with my Adderall. My sleep cycle is off too. Anyone have any suggestions?

      My shrink has me on 3 pills of 30mg @ 2x daily. So, 90mg @ 2x daily. I’ve been taking Adderall for over 20 years, though. Started with a 10mg pill once daily back then. It is the only thing that keeps me from feeling narcoleptic in the past, and now it barely does anything. I can easily sleep through my normal dose and sometimes more.

      I have had multiple sleep studies and finally getting much better after Bipap/CPAP therapy. Please note that pain meds like narcotics will change your brain and cause sleep apnea over time. I realize they can be necessary as I was on them for 20 years.

      Keep me posted. I sleep all day even with taking it.

      Me too… I’m following your thread, also looking for advice. …and I’m on adderall too. Because of this, friends/therapist /fellow sufferers suggested doing a sleep study. I will be doing a one in a couple of months, in which day 2 works on “figuring out” (or whatever they do 🤷🏻‍♀️) what is causing the daytime sleepiness.
