For those on adderall IR... how long does it last for you? How far do you space your doses? If you are not on xyrem does the adderall disrupt your sleep? What do you take to rest? I find I stay in hypnagogia for an hour or 3 and can't get any further on days I take adderall, so I don't take it daily.
(If you have seen previous posts from Ms stating that I want to wean off and use the ketosis diet, this remains true. I just have to plan it for a proper time in my life, which will be after I figure out what is going on with ssi and other benefits, and when I can get over to my mom's for 2 weeks late August, so I can have down time. Long story but that plan is still underway)
It's different for everyone though.
I get about 4-5 hours on a good day. I supplement it with the IR version which helps a bit.
There is a world of difference with the Adderall XR generic formula versus the name brand XR formula. The generic formula is a lot more spiky in its release timing, and drops off a lot harsher. It's been my experience that it doesn't last as long.
I still feel like I'm never quite awake though.
About 2 weeks ago I started taking a 120mg XR and a 30mg IR in the morning and now I feel great for about 10 to 11 hours (give or take for good/bad narco days).
Take them at 8am and about 6 or 7, on average, is when I feel them wearing off. But I dont have the crash that I had when I only took IRs.
