I recently started taking adderall usually 1 or 2 times per week for the last 2 and a half months or so. It wasn't every week either, but for some reason, I had to take pretty high doses to get desired effects, and sometimes (like last night), i would end up taking a high dose and be surprised at how weak it felt. I always take it orally, and they are IR. I know some of this has to do with tolerance (now) but even when i started, i seemed to need quite high dose. I assumed that it is because I am currently on suboxone (been weaning off for a while now). I'm at 1.5mg/day now, and i'm also on clanazopam 1mg twice a day. When I first started taking them, i thought 15mg would be enough but it turns out even 30mg wasn't helping me that much. Last few weeks i've been taking 45-60mg and usually, id get 2 days worth. the first day i would take them (it would usually be lin the evening to do school work) they would work well and id even get some euphoria. however, the next day, even if i waited a full 24 hours, the same dose was WAY less effective. I started to make sure not to take my klonopin in the evening- instead i would take it when coming down. i'm just confused now, bc i searched a bunch of threads where people said these combos were enjoyable..
At the momment, i'm mainly concerned with the whole issue of when i take it 2 days in a row, the 2nd day is not very effective. Yesterday, i took quite a high dose, more than ive ever taken and im kind of pissed off at myself. i took over 90 mg total and pulled an all nighter. I still have a LOT of work to do, and I do have really bad ADD. I was planning to get on a stimulant after i got off sub. I have had so many struggles with school, mainly a combination of anxiety and ADD. So im just trying to understand if the 2 depressants im on is lessening the effects or not? I did read that acidic drinks will lessen the effect so i make sure not to drink anything acidic, i just drink water. However, last night i did (without realizing) have a greek salad, and the salad dressing is definitely super acidic. I only ate a small amount though when I realized i was going to take the adderall to do hw that night. sorry for rambling. any thoughts are appreciated.
