I really need help and advice with my adderal !

So ill try to keep this as short as possible. Ive been on adderall for 3 years now ( currently 20mg xr once a day ) . Im trying to better understand whats going on with me and what to do about it. Since being on adderall it has changed my life dramatically in a positive way BUTTT at a dam cost.

I definitely have side effects but its odd because they seem to come and go at random times. But i started thinking and realized after today maybe its not so random. I have been horribly stressed out and now the side effects have freaking came out like never before.

My compulsive behaviors are awful , not only do i find myself masturbating to mad porn for long periods of time but i also developed the urge of picking my facial hairs out , its crazy but so satisfying why ? also my anxiety is high so social places make me nervous , i feel like people are looking at me . I find myself driving to stores i need to go in and ill just sit in my car for like 10 min trying to motivate myself to walk in ( sometimes I'm a puss and drive away ).

I pick at my face all the time and loud noises freak me out and **** me off. but its not always like this. Ive even had periods where i felt drained and the medication wasn't working , no joke i started storing it in a different area cuz i thought it was a tempature thing . But its sad to say i do live a really ****ty annoying life that would probably drive anyone nuts .

I try my best to stay positive but i almost broke down today. I couldn't even get the motivation to walk into target , i felt like my face was breaking out in hives and recently I've noticed this weird heart beat thing . its hard to explain but i feel my heart and have had shortness of breathe. what the hell is happening to me ! i feel like i can't talk to anyone about this and don't no what to do. is this all happening from very high stress levels ? or is adderall just not for me ? can anyone relate

It sounds like adderall is causing too much stimulation. It contains levoamphetamine which cause PNS, or excessive physical-like stimulation. Maybe dexedrine would be a better fit.

Another option would be try augmenting with clonidine or guanfacine. It helps to reduce the sympathetic outflow (stimulating effect) to the rest of your body, and can often be useful to try if people don't respond well to the stimulants.
