For anyone seeking info on using an ADHD medication, please read.

After 7 years of taking Adderall xr, I definitely can offer you an expert opinion. I never intentionally abused the script; only took the correct dosage, which after 7 years had increased to 60 mgs a day. I absolutely loved every minute of it. I was able to maintain my figure, graduate Summa Cum Laude from college, keep up with my kids, and a full time job. However, now I am fighting weight gain, despise my self-image, feel worthless, and am constantly seeking some legal OTC alternative, which I know I will never find.

I have been off this med for over 6 months and my desire for it remains in full effect. I thought I could "manage" Adderall, but the Adderall managed me.
