    Morgan 73: As someone who suffers from treatment-resistant depression, I have been tried on every antidepressant known to man with little to no success, so trying not to put all my eggs (medications) in one basket. It is suffering as you called it. I was always to understand that generics are the same you are getting as the brand, but who knows if that is true. I can see where my doctor is coming from when he says that since I had a good response initially, it is now just a matter of finding the right dose. I don’t have any side effects from the Adderall that I can put my finger on. I think any time you take a medication, you are setting yourself up for a host of complications if not initially, somewhere down the road. We obviously live in a time when people are searching for that quick fix; I know I am! Problem is there probably is not such a thing on the market, generic or brand. I wish you the best in your continued search for healing and wholeness.

    I hope someone responds to this post with good news. I am currently on Paxil 60 mg a day and was just added generic Adderall (don’t even know if its XR or IR). The doctor started me on 10 mg Adderall and it was an amazing “high” (I can say that with all honesty as an addict). Then, 2-3 days later, it wore off that “high” and I took more. I saw my doctor recently and he said because I had a good response, he just needed to go up on the dose. Now, I am prescribed 20 mg 2 times a day. I had been off it before this new prescription for about a week and it was hard. Once again, starting the 20 mg, I felt immediate relief and now I’m fearful that it will not work like the 10 mg dose for more than 3 days. Has anyone experience such a situation and do you/they have advice for me??? I see my doctor on Thursday and I need to know what to tell him.
