I take a low dose of Adderal first thing in the morning and again at noon. I haven't gotten any of the side effects. I take it because of the extreme fatigue I have from an autoimmune disease I have. It's a lifesaver!!
@A MyDepressionTeam Member I take Ritalin twice a day for ADD but it does also give me a little energy boost. I probably couldn't function without it! It helps with both of my symptoms.

I was put on a 40 mg of vyvanses. I want to get off of it. I mentioned eating to make myself feel better and got labeled a binge eater. I dont think i am. My depression got worse and was taking prozac with it. My depression is way worse. I can cry at the drop of a hat. Im very scared.
