Well, I am currently taking adderall 5 mg twice daily. I am a 26 year old male with a normal EKG and a normal Echo. Everytime i taek adderall i feel chest tingling and as i breathe i feel an increase need to cough. Once i cough, my chest no longer feels tingling. This happens only as i take the drug. Can you explain why I have this side effect??
how is anxiety linked to the cough
and how do you describe anxiety?
also, what alternatives are there for stimulant medications that do not have anxiety as a side effect?
3 questions. thanks
This is for ADD
I prefer to use a stimulant drug. What other options are there that are stimulants that might help avoid the side effect of a cough
I do not understand the correlation between ACH inhibtors and adderall and myself, please explain
oh okay.. I do not taek ace inhibor
I feel this is due to anxiety
Is the risk of anxiety as a side effect less with ritalin?
No i take this for ADD, not narcoplepsy or ADHD. Just add
okay thanks. what is the reason of less of a risk with Ritalin than with Adderall? I do not understand the two
the last question i have to the one above is how would you differnetiate the acting of the two drugs: Adderall and Ritalin. What are the differences you have seen in patients and what would you prefer for add as opposed to adhd.
Sounds good. How can i tell what dose I should be on? I will see my doctor next week and currenlty i take 5mg once or twice daily. What should i feel like (please be detailed) when on the optimal dosing? SHould i feel more concentrated, should i feel more active, more subtle)? Please be as detailed as you can. Thanks
This should be the last major question i have
Are you there?
