How should I feel

Sorry If this could be found with a search. The search function is not working.

How should I be feeling with my medication? The first two weeks I felt calmer and focused then the third week:

- I am still hyper
- I still talk fast

- My anxiety is manageable
- I can focus.
- I am no longer impatient.
- I listen when others talk with me talking over them etc..

I used to take dexedrine when I was younger and was prescribed it again recently as an adult. I cant remember how it was before but I remember it helped a lot.

It feels like its day to day with it working or not at week 3.

Just trying to see if I should still be hyper and talking fast with the medication.

I take it after breakfast and after working out, so about an hr and 30 min after waking.

15 mg

Re: How should I feel

It’s honestly going to vary somewhat person to person.
For me, it usually gives me a steady boost of energy and allows me to focus on stuff I need to get done. If it’s making you uncomfortable or anxious, you should talk to your doctor about it and see what they suggest.

Are you on instant release or the Spansule extended release?

Would you mind sharing what dose you take?

Hi.i was taking 15mg extended. My Dr just upped it to 30mg. It's been working great now. Just wish it lasted more then 5 hours. Seems to kick in real well around 2 hour mark then starts wearing off rather quickly around 5 hours after taking it.
