Re: Adderall Addiction

Dude, you are jumping ahead, too far, with too little information.

Go talk to a psychiatrist who specializes in substance addiction.

I have read several reports of people coming off high-dose Adderall and their psychiatrists just gradually lowered their dose ... like over a serious period of time ... no residential rehab. Those programs have a much more mixed picture than people suppose.

Go to talk to a good doctor and share your story. You'll get options for stopping and ... the doctor will most likely want to taper you down gradually ... so that your body and brain can adjust over time ... Most likely you and your doctor ca agree to some form of accountability so that he knows you really are following the gradual decrease ...

And dude, if you don't taper down, you're gonna lose your job and your life. So just take a step and assume there is a way you can do this without losing your job ... Of course, you're scared and terrified. But that will lessen over time as you get a good treatment program ... nobody said anything about cold-turkey.
