Adderall makes me sleepy/tired

Every time I take adderall, 2 hours in I get sleepy/tired and can just put my head down at a desk and sleep. I was at a concert and the music felt good but I could just close my eyes and felt somewhat sleepy.

This has happened on 10mg 2 times a day for 20mgs a day, then bumped up to 20mg in the morning and 10mg in the evening for 30mgs a day. I can sleep very well on adderall.

Also my head feels really calm like I can control my thoughts soo well. But there's an inconsistency in my body. I can feel my heart beat in my body and in general my body does not feel calm at all.

Does anyone else have these things happen to them? I've been reading and doing searches on this topic but no one follows up on how they dealt with it. Would dexedrine possibly remove the sleepiness? I know that Ritalin and concerta don't have any effect on me.
