  oral Amphetamines (daily)


I was given Adderall prescription to help with my ADD. It was wonderful, like coming out of a life long fog. I was able to experience emotions, communicate, think clearly, be organize, sense of well being [lost weight! yeh] but it has one side effect for me that negates almost all of the positive ones. Starting at 30 mg and higher, my scalp starts to itch. I drives me crazy. Unfortunately, the medication helps me to focus on the itching. My doctor was no help in solving this problem. I have relentless searched the internet without finding a solution. I have already tried antihistamines and they does not work, from Benedryl to Zrytec.
