David,

I take adderall but I get the amphetamine part of it. It gives me energy to do things that I normally wouldn't be able to do. But without it I can't get out of bed. Maybe you have ADD and that is why you don't get the stimulant effect.

I hope that you find what works for you. Let the doc know that the adderall isn't doing what it is suppose to do. I couldn't live without it.

Hugs, Karen

I feel the energy that it gives me but it makes me feel sort of detached and listless.....I have read where it does some people this way...

Oh, I am glad that I am not one of them. I would sleep all day without it. Maybe if you tried walking or moving around (if you aren't already) it might help. I hope that you find something that works for you. Do you take the timed released capsules or the pills? I take the pills, so I have to take two a day.

Hugs, Karen
