Advice & Tips: Adderall is a life saver for me, mainly its antidepressant effects but it treats my ADD symptoms very well also. When I take it in the morning, many bad days I am able to get up and move around and get some things done where before I would have been in bed all day. It makes everyday tasks that used to seem totally impossible possible. Not a cure but a huge help.
