Adderall - Need Help Quitting
As a child my parents got conned into believing that I had ADHD because I was hyper all of the time. I saw a psychologist and they asked me all sorts of questions and ended up finding that since I had sleeping problems, was always hyper, and didn't do well in school that I had ADHD.
Well looking back at it my parents gave me sugar soda multiple times a days so I was always jacked up and I didn't like school in 7th grade, who did?
Regardless I have been on this prescription meth for 7 years now. This past fall I started having heart problems, my resting heart rate was 118 BPM, I was off the charts and I was getting rushed from specialist to specialist trying to figure out what was wrong with me. I quit chewing tabacco, my horrible diet full of sugar and carbs and switched to a vegan diet for a while, and then recently went bulletproof 1 month ago. My heart rate is now successfully down to 70 BPM (which is still bad for a guy that is 6' 155 pounds).
I am extremely worried about my long term health and can't imagine a single way that adderall is good for me in the long run. I am afraid of quitting though, the with drawl will be so hard. I am attending college, have a major in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science as well as Business Administration with minors in Economics and Speech, as well as my job, a girlfriend, involved in my fraternity, student government, and a calculus tutor on campus, I make my own electronic music and in the middle of creating a new social networking website.I don't want to drop any of these activities as I love every one of them.
I have tried quitting before but I loose so much energy and just sleep for horribly long, up to 18 hours at a time for days in a row! It becomes to stressful as the tasks in life pile up and I always go back to adderall to keep my life moving on.
Has anyone quit adderall or know any of their friends that have ? Any bulletproof suggestion how I can regain my life ?
