I Need Medication Advise
A MyNarcolepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I’ve been taking 15mg of adderall 3 times a day. Most of the time it works, I just hate the crash at the end of the day and I feel like it changes my personality. My Dr. Called in Sunosi but my pharmacy has to order it. She says I can just take Sunosi and stop adderal. Has anyone tried this? I’m afraid I’ll have adderal withdrawal. I’m afraid it won’t work.

Has Anyone Else Read That Narcolepsy Is Commonly Treated With Stimulants? Ex. Adderall
A MyNarcolepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have been struggling with my sleep and staying awake for a long time. My boyfriend of a year (and some change) has tried to help by seeing if taking one of his Adderall pills would help me stay awake. I've found it puts me to sleep right the same as my Xanax does. Another friend suggested I try Vyvanse. I have heard Vyvanse is different but not sure in what ways. I tried a tiny amount on a day where I was struggling to stay consistently awake, and it worked. No side effects, just normal… read more
