Tingly Disappointment
Amphetamines (Adderall XR)
Citation:   Leaderofel. "Tingly Disappointment: An Experience with Amphetamines (Adderall XR) (exp79055)". Jul 8, 2019.

10 mg oral Amphetamines (daily)
Hi, Iíll call myself J. Iím a 15 year old High school student. Recently, Iíd say within the past three months, I was prescribed a few different adderall medications. The first one I was prescribed was Adderall XR 10 mg. Before being prescribed I knew that taking a certain amount of Adderall will get you high. My friend S is a addict.

After talking to him about it, I decided that I wasnít going to take more then my 10 mg prescribed, addiction scared me
addiction scared me
and really the only drugs Iíd done before are Pot and Alcohol.

After taking my first dose, I felt high even though it was a small amount it was my first time, and I loved every minute of it. As soon as I felt that tingle in my fingers and toes and that rush every time I stretched my legs and arms, I knew I wanted to do more.

That was about three months ago and over the past three months Iíve taken double, and I believe once triple my dose [20 mgs a bunch of times and 30 mg once]. I love the feeling, but since then my Mum has counted my pills and noticed a few missing, today is my first time on 20 mg in about a month, and even though I love the feeling, I canít help but feel disgusted with myself.

Adderall is highly psychologically addicting. I can 100% understand why someone would get addicted, and it still scares me. I have withdrawals of depression and feeling like shit even after taking my prescribed dose and not taking it the next day. On top of that, there is always the thought of being chemically addicted to Adderall.
