Adderall Depression Reviews

Wed, 01 Feb 2012

16, ADHD, hate my dependency on Adderall, Depression, random euphoria, aggression, slight tics, restlessness, irritability, antisocial, anger, all day the only thing i'm able to think about is the list of shit that needs to get done and if it's a long list i get stressed out and end up doing none of it, this leads to more stress. my friends don't like being around me when i'm on Adderall, people who see me inside and outside of school notice a huge difference in how happy i am. stop putting so much money into drugs and put every cent you have into researching a healthier, less depressing treatment or a whole reevaluation of the disorder.
