Re: CF and Adderall

I was diagnosed with ADHD about three years ago. Adderal has been a Godsend to me because it helps me concentrate. I take a small dose - - just 5 mg before I work or need to concentrate. It is not long acting (good for about 4 hours), so if I need more, my Dr. has me take it then.

I do not take Adderal prior to working out - - don't need it because I stay so busy and it's easy to stay "on task" with the varied routine. Also, it does not seem to do anything to my HR or B/P.
