Advice & Tips: My husband thinks that this medication might contribute to my having ALS, so I take much less than I used to. I don't think it causes ALS, but I have found that I do as well with the lower dosage (20 mg once a day, rather than 40 mg twice a day). I get much more accomplished when I take Adderall, and feel better about myself.

    Moderate (for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (spaced out, irritability, headaches, decreased appetite)

Advice & Tips: Force yourself to drink water throughout the day and be sure you're eating enough calories. Provided you're taking care of yourself, the side effects become less severe over time. Adderall alters your mood: It's normal to be irritable and/or inattentive while on this medication. Work with your friends, family, and/or partner to minimize the negative effects of the changes in your mood. Individual counseling and/or couple's therapy can be very helpful in addressing this.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
