Adderall Withdrawal: Seven Steps to Stop Symptoms
Posted March 15th, 2013 by Jennifer L. Reimer

Adderall withdrawal can interfere with your ability to function in daily life. Common symptoms, last for approximately two weeks to three months, depending upon how high your Adderall dosage was, how long you took this medication for, and may vary slightly in severity if you were taking Adderall XR (extended release) or an Adderall generic. From most to least common, you may experience:

- Fatigue
- Hypersomnia (sleeping more than normal) or Insomnia
- Increased Appetite
- Slow Reflexes
- Inability to Concentrate
- Anxiety
- Irritability
- Depression
- Paranoia

There are both natural methods, and medicines your doctor can prescribe, that will alleviate these symptoms.

How to Stop Adderall Withdrawal

Depending on the symptoms of Adderall withdrawal that are bothering you most, some of the following suggestions will help you overcome the trouble you are having adjusting to being off Adderall. More rare and severe symptoms that require medical attention are listed last:

- Overcoming Fatigue: Go to bed and wake up at the same time everyday. Do not watch television while going to sleep or have lights on. Even if you have trouble falling asleep, being in the dark for the same hours and duration each night will cause your body to adjust your circadian rhythms, its natural way of regulating sleep, which may have been affected by Adderall. The first few days of Adderall withdrawal may be difficult, but the ultimate payoff of staying in the dark with closed eyes will be substantial.
- Overcoming Hypersomnia/Insomnia: Daily exercise, including easy activities like going for walks and taking the stairs, will help your body adjust to a regular sleep cycle as well. Additionally, natural supplements, including Panax ginseng and Valerian root may help with sleep. Talk to your doctor if sleep issues persist.
