Thanks for the replies. Thanks Alli for saying you did not find the Adderall was the same as coffee. I have not yet filled the Adderall prescription as my son’s graduation is Thurs evening. But mostly, I remembered re coffee, that I once dared to drink about a quarter of a cup full (the most I ever tried) and had such a severe case … of my heart racing and feeling suddenly flushed … that I never tried again. That is what made me think of it when prescribed Adderall that it too is a stimulant. I think I may try dividing up the crystals in the capsule to (if I can) take like 2.5 mg the first day … then increase it… if that is possible.
