View Full Version : crappy sleep...

This is my 3rd day on 10 mg of Adderall XR, taken at 8am...The drug is working wonders for me, the only problem is with sleep. At bedtime I'll fall asleep when I want to, but invariably I'll wake up a few hours later and be in and out of a light sleep all night. It gets worse every night...last night was extremely restless and my brain was going a million miles an hour, like a ride I couldn't get off of. Finally I fell asleep, but not quality sleep.

Has anybody else had these side effects, and if so is this something that usually wears off after a couple off weeks?

yes it does wear off after time when the body gets used to the medication. It also depends on when you take it and if you have massive amounts of soda and coffee or sugar. If you can cut down on soft drinks and coffee and sugar and take the pills not so late in the day, you should notice a difference in your sleep. :)
Try eating some carbs before bedtime, that will help you relax and fall asleep.

All right, I'll give it a few weeks. Thanks K-fab.
