I've battled insomnia for years and have tried a variety of methods/prescriptions to various efficacy. I was just prescribed adderall today and and currently being weaned off of benzo's that were used for sleep/stress. Given my pre-adderall significant sleep issues, are there any suggestions for how to limit adderall's effect on sleep?

Thanks!

A lot of times people adjust to the initial insomnia the stimulants cause. Also, for some, they sleep better on stimulants because they quite the racing thoughts some get with ADHD get. You really have to see how Adderal affects you before you decide if it is beneficial.
