I have been taking adderall 20mg twice a day for about 6 years. I have never really been an unhealthy person but within the last 2 years I have felt awful, like convinced I was dying awful. I was sick all the time, back to back “ear infections” TMJ, anxiety, I have literally seen every specialists possible and no one can figure out what is going on because the treatment plans do not work. I started having headaches so bad they landed my in the ER… This time a migraine diagnosis, again, treatments don’t phase it. I took a break from my adderall for the first time in a very long time and noticed a huge improvement. I then thought about the fact that every time i had picked my rx up recently that it was a different generic drug, it never crossed my mind that it could be causing my symptoms bc I have been taking it for so long. I seriously got to the point of believing that I may have MS. I have not had a chance to see my Dr to discuss this with her yet but I pray there is no one else out there that has been experiencing what I have been going through
