Depression, a Common Side Effect of the Adderall Crash?

Recently, I’ve been receiving more questions about the common side-effects of the adderall crash, particularly asking about depression.

If you’ve ever pushed yourself to the limits on adderall you know what I’m talking about when I say, “adderall crash.”

If you’re one of the many people who have difficulty dealing with the crash, I suggest you read my blog post with helpful hints on surviving the crash.

Adderall Crash - How to Deal with the Crash

I wanted to answer this question as a blog post and share with my readers my experience with the crash -- I feel it’s important for other people who take adderall or other ADHD prescription drugs to learn that they are not alone when certain feelings that he or she may not normally feel arise when coming off adderall.

Now that the legal mumbo-jumbo is out of the way here we go --

Message: Hi, I was wondering if depression is a common side effect of adderallcrash. I have found I have this issue only after stopping it or decreasing my dose, and I will either experience the common side of effect of increased anger or depression. Do anti-depressants help fend this off? Thanks!

Adderall and Alcohol

The Good, The Bad & The Cracked Out. Adderall and Alcohol
Adderall and alcohol can help eliminate your adderall crash, by relaxing your mind, allowing you to shut off and focus on relaxing. If alcohol and adderall is not abused it can be very beneficial to help with your adderall crash. Unfortunately most of the information out on the internet tell you that combining adderall and alcohol is hazardous and can be deadly.

No it’s not -- it can only become deadly if you’re a dumb shit, take way too much adderall, don’t eat anything during the day, and then decide to go out and party your ass off drinking way too much alcohol. Be smart about it.

However, I know it’s not that easy to say be smart about your adderall and alcohol consumption because for most people, commonsense just isn’t common anymore. So here are the concerns about taking adderall and then consuming alcohol.


Adderall Crash

I’m exhausted.... I’ve been on the adderall roller coaster since April 8th hitting the replay buttom day start and day end. There has really been no beginning or ending of the days, they have turned into blurs and memories that feel took place years ago.

Did we meet with Sarah on Monday, or was that this morning? Yes... it was this morning... I’m losing my mind and my head feels like one big adderall pill.
