View Full Version : Timing of medication

09-03-09, 02:31 AM
I work nights. I don't get home until 3 a.m. During the summer, I slept until about 10 or 11 when my kids woke me up. (They would sit and watch t.v. on my bed until they couldn't stave off their need for breakfast any longer). Generally speaking I wasn't taking my adderal until about noon which is no big deal I suppose being I needed to be up late anyway.

Now, I'm still working nights and needing to be up at 7 a.m. to get kids on the bus and am unsure of when to take my meds. I MUST come home and sleep. Adderall gives me a boost of energy shortly after taking it and it would kick in right when I need to nap, but taking it later than noon and I'm scared I'll not be able to sleep at night. Any input of how I should address this? I have trouble sleeping anyway without adderall. I'm told it can make things worse. As a result I've not taken my meds in three days and my house is un inhabitable now.
