Is 5 mg adderall supposed to make you super chill?
Focused, yes, but not annoyed/worried by the things that normally annoy/worry you OR excited/interested by the things that normally excite/interest you? Normal?
I always feel more chill when taking stimulants - they help me regulate my emotions a great deal and they also calm the anxiety get when my ADHD keeps me from performing well.
They **don't** make me feel uninterested in the things I like though - what you're describing sounds more like the "zombie mode" some people experience as a side-effect ( additudemag.com/adhd-medica... ). That usually means that the dose is too high for you (5mg might sound like a tiny amount, but everyone's body chemistry is different and will react to different dosages).
If it were me, I would try cutting the dose in half for a day and see if that gave me the same focus but without "super chill" side-effects.
Also, make sure you're getting enough sleep and drinking enough water! Lack of sleep causes me to feel dazed and unresponsive, and sometimes my meds will exacerbate that.
5mg is a low enough dose to see how you personally will react I've had great experiences with it unfortunately I'm at the end where it's not enough but 5 is great and everyone is different but by first week you'll know if it's for you or not I think it will be clear to you
thought while they are speaking to me I am sure this annoys people. My problem is I really do not have any...
bother, right? Eh- I say \"what did you learn from it?\" not \"what did you accomplish?\" Don't ever think...
prioritization lists, timers, due dates and other things like that would be fantastic. If anyone has any...
