    Ok so I recently got diagnosed with ADHD the dr put me on adderal xr to start off. Adderall XR was Terrible for me it made me extra sleepy, depressed, lack of motivation, zoned out, moody, etc. It def didn’t help me focus if anything it made it worse. My question is is what medicine worked best for you. If your somebody that has taken adderal xr and had similar side effects

    I have run across a few folks like this. I know of a child who took another dose of a stimulant before bed so she could sleep — otherwise her mind and body were too active for her to fall asleep.
