View Full Version : Has anyone tried stimulants before bed to sleep?

Dr. Amen recommends this for some types of ADD.

Has anyone tried this. I feel "at ease" when I take adderall, but still can't sleep at night.

I was thinking of trying a crumb - maybe 2.5 mg before bed.

Better late than never...

I take 1.25 mg (1/4 of one tab) of dex about a half-hour before bed and it really helps me get to sleep. My doctor signed off on it so I'm comfortable doing it...

Some people, stims will help with sleep, but not all people.

I actually sleep better while I'm one adderall. I go to sleep later but I sleep throughout the night. During periods when I'm not on my meds, I can't sleep through the night. I wake up constantly and my back hurts.

I can sleep after taking a 'night-time' dose, but usually have extremely bizarre and vivid dreams, no surprise really given what my brain is processing as I sleep...
