just in case we have anyone viewing this thread, looking for "advice"... I'm not here to tell someone what they should or shouldn't be taking, but I want to be clear that 140mg is an ENORMOUS dose of Adderall!
140mg of Adderall is anywhere from 3x to 14x (TIMES) the recommended dose of Adderall.
fyi: tablets come in 5, 10, 20, & 30mg forms
(newer doses:2.5mg, 7.5mg, 15mg, and maybe others...).
Adderall comes in 2 forms: regular
(aka "instant release") and XR
("extended release") formulations. Dosing of XR is based on the idea that it gives you the same # of milligrams, only spread out over 8-10 hours.
This dose is FAR above any beginner dose. Something more like 5-10mg for a beginner, and up to 30mg (instant release) at any one time, & 20mg to 60mg for XR, is much more reasonable, and can be taken safely by most people.
Some people will certainly take higher doses recreationally... although, I've heard of adults taking 40mg, 50mg, or even 60mg at once without any known problems or complications, it should be stated that high doses are not advised, and high doses can definitely cause heart attacks, arrythmias, strokes, dangerously high blood pressures... although any dose (10mg+) could be considered potentially "recreational." people should definitely be careful with this drug
... and just because some US dr's seem to give it out like candy, that doesn't mean that it should be disrespected.
BEWARE: persons with heart conditions, high blood pressure
), elevated heart rates, taking other stimulant meds, people with thyroid conditions... Make no mistake about it, adderall contains amphetamines.
is prepared in a mixture
of various salt forms....for chemistry buffs, it give you roughly a 50:50 mix of d- and l- amphetamine isomers. d-amphetamine (dexadrine); and l-amphetamine (levo-amphetamine)--for it's side effect
Adderall is essentially a "designer" form of dextro-amphetamine, designed mostly for its comparatively "pleasant" come-down/crash and fewer side-effects than regular dexadrine.
