    Adderall's a stimulant

    Adderall causes you to release norepinephrine, which is a neurotransmitter, however it also is responsible for the release of adrenaline. Thus the stimulating effect similar to ephedrine. Although it goes further, it also prevents the re-uptake of norepinephrine and thus it is active longer. Continuing, it prevents the re-uptake of dopamine, by binding with dopamine transporters - it essentially plugs the sink for these neurotransmitters letting the levels rise to higher than normal levels. As you can imagine, with increased norepinephrine you will have increased heart rate, thus metabolism is increased. It also does "heat" you up, and causes one to sweat more. Ritalin is similar, but different. They say Ritalin is to Cocaine as Adderall is to methamphetamine. Ritalin does cause neurons to release dopamine as well as prevent the re-uptake of dopamine. Thus high dopamine levels (can you say anti-prolactin [prampexole and cabergoline mimic dopamine, however Ritalin causes an increase of your own dopamine, which is the agent that serves as the anti-prolactin]). It does the same thing with norepinephrine. However, if you can imagine a tree with fruit, and some are ripe and some are need some more time - Ritalin selectively picks the ripe fruit (neurons that will release the neurotransmitters) while Adderall will pick all the fruit (ready or not). So, in my opinion Ritalin is better. They both suppress appetite and they both increase dopamine. Ritalin has been around a long time, although we really don't understand the drug that well still. Mind you, since it causes an increase in norepi (think adrenaline) it causes vasoconstriction (that's why meth heads teeth fall out, that and it also leeches Calcium, so if you are taking Ritalin or Adderall, take a Calcium supplement). So, with Ritalin and Adderall you may experience cold fingers, toes, nose... But, your armpits will more than likely sweat more than usual. I could go on and on.. But, shoot me any questions... I've had both, and am currently prescribed one. I also understand physiology rather well and performance enhancing agents and their interactions and how to counter adverse side effects...

    Glad I never had to take any of this stuff, although it helps tons of people cramming for tests, so I get it.

    I feel hesitation to use the supplements although these are good for rapid weight loss. But i am very impressed supplements which are present on this forum and i am taking interest in the use of these supplements use.

    Stuff isn't worth the hype. First few days of it are great but you'll build a quick tolerance. I've been on off it for years (prescribed) and I have a eating disorder (eat to much) and adderall, provigil, welbutrin and Dex. I'd always build a huge tolerance for them and refuse to take high doses of anything despite being prescribed it by a medical professional. Also ten plus year stim junkie doesn't help anything.

    I totally agree with building up a tolerance to adderal.... after a month of taking it straight I ended taking double the dose I started out with!

    Hey there. I'm sorry, but I can't understand your grammar very much. I almost get what you're saying about certain things and other things are clear, but some points you're trying to make, I can not understand. Again, my apologies.

When Im getting jiggy my friend just doesn't want to cooperate (Barely any feeling) Has anyone else had this problem? I know some friends that also complain about it.
    So, I was on 30 mg adderall xr then switched to vyvanse, then to 60 mg adderall ir, and now dexadrine 60 mg ir. This has been over the couse of 6 years. It was great first... sex was better, i could study for 12 hours straight, didn't need to sleep or eat most of the time. Anyway, you build up a tolerance over time, hence the increasing dosage etc... At first I lost about 20 pound in a couple months. When your tolerance goes up, you are still productive, but the great mood goes away, you get hungry again, and your sex drive eventually becomes non-existant. Not to freak you out...this happened over the course of 6 years, but eventually you do get to that point, and its probably time to get off of it (i'm working on it). The only good thing I can say is even without the same motivation and good mood, you can still concentrate pretty well...that, as far as I know, never goes away.

    I'm going to be honest, if you plan on taking adderall once in a while, like once a week or so, you are better off not starting at all. Amphetamines will put your life on a rollercoaster, and I speak from experience. Caffeine is the way to go IMO.

    I am back on my adderal Rx after some time off. Even on cycle my weight is slowly going down. Sucks, but it honestly is a life saver for me.

    Your honesty is greatly appreciated. I am glad that it is helping you in a therapeudic capacity. I was Rx'd Dexedrine IR at one point, because it acts primarily to wake the brain and not have any peripheral side effects that the Adderal has and I realized that I really didn't need it and with my personality, I would catch myself messing around with the stuff like a maniacal speed phreak. Andro Drive is all I need.

    I have decided previously I didn't need it, but it became very apparent that it was a smarter move to go back to it. I am a fan of the drive, and it did help in a good way, but the strength of adderall did more for me. I was hoping the weight loss would not happen with the hormones I am currently on, but I always have an initial large dip in weight when I go back to it, and it appears this is no different. But when it comes to saving my work/study life, it is a necessity.

    I know what you mean. I will be starting up my adderall shortly when I start school, but I'm dreading looking like a stick again.. but then again I know I need it to actually listen to the lectures and study so it has to be done.

    When I think about long term hormonal use as far as lower/moderate doses of some Andro v3 series products, it reminds me of the long term use of psychotropics. Personally, I'd rather be using a couple VERY low suppressive (if really suppressive at all ie. Andro Drive and Andro Lean) than using the medications I've tried (Librium, Lexapro, Cymbalta, Adderall, Dexedrine, etc) that absolutely try and re-wire the brain and possibly, permenantly fudge up the transport mechanisms for given neurotransmitters. I know that recovery from long term psychotropics has been BRUTAL compared to recovery from a long, suppressive cycle. And I am honestly done with gear, etc. Although I do consider Andro Drive and Andro Lean NON AAS type products. One provides excellent brain support and the other is an excellent cortisol modulator and recomp agent.

    I'm not trying to stray off topic here. My bad. What do you think, Heretostudy? Out of 2 things that enhance quality of life without causing damage to the brain, would you say that it would be worth it to stay on Andro Drive being that out of all the psychotropics I've used, this one is the most efficient and prominent and is neuroprotective?

    I'm all for medicine if there is no other way to safely improve quality of life for a given individual. Trust me.

    I actually can't comment on long term usage yet. I have been meaning to have a conversation with Eric concerning long term usage of Drive.

    I've been taking adderall for a few months now daily and have had no problems with eating. I've actually gained 10 pounds. Sure you don't feel hungry when on it, but we all know with the goals we want to achieve its necessary. So I eat regardless. Also my workouts have been unbelievable with a definite increase in strength.
