How long does it take to develop dependency?

SWIM has tried to keep adderall once a day on the weekends. Lately, this past month, SWIM has been taking alot of it 2-3 days out of the week.. SWIM does get the crashes as well as cravings.. But does SWIY think SWIM is already dependant on it? SWIM is curious how long it takes to just downregulate the chemicals in the brain? SWIM doesn't take it everyday, so could SWIY become dependant on it, even tho it's not being used everday, but rather few times a week?

Re: How long does it take to develop dependency?

It depends on whether SWIY is defining dependent as being mentally addicted or physically addicted. If SWIY simply thinks they cannot function without it, thats a simple mental addiction. If SWIY goes through detox phases where they have physical withdrawals (vomiting, cold sweats, headaches), SWIY is physically dependent. So from what SWIM can determine, it sounds as if SWIY may be mentally dependent on it but not physically addicted.

Re: How long does it take to develop dependency?

SWIM has to agree with the mental part of it, and the "thinking about it alot".. Fortuntely, the vomiting/cold sweats/and chills are not really present in amphetamine WDs, but moreso opiates. Amphetamine WD is mainly fatigue/low motivation, depression, and increased hunger.. SWIM just wanted to know the physical aspect of it too.. But Maybe SWIM would have to take it consistantly over a peroid of time on a daily basis for that to happen, correct?

SWIM shall not worry much tho. Although SWIM will take a long break, and supplement on amino acids - mainly tyrosine and DLPA to get any depeleted nuerotransmitters back up from the few day binders...

Re: How long does it take to develop dependency?

SWIM often takes at least 30mg of Adderall everday every other week or so and does not experience any WD symptoms aside from slight depression for a day. Nothing SWIM cant handle with a little bit of mary jane. SWIM is experience with adderall, but does not take it on a very consistent basis so he is not sure what exactly it would take to experience serious physical WD symptoms. SWIM wants to say it is harder than one might think, but every personality is different, so by no means think the same applies to SWIY.

Re: How long does it take to develop dependency?

Yes, a good bit of the time the drug has to be done daily for a somewhat long duration of time for dependancy to grow. Of course there are some drugs where a couple of uses can cause dependency, but generally adderal does not fall into that category. The mental dependency should be all SWIY has to deal with.

Re: How long does it take to develop dependency?

SWIyou can become dependent on Adderall; even with infrequent use. The real kicker for many people is when they begin to increase their dosage to achieve the same effects.

SWIM has been prescribed stimulants for almost a year now and a small dose of Adderall still helps him focus. SWIM takes a Magnesium supplement every day because apparently it reduces tolerance to amphetamines. Also, SWIM takes breaks from his medication. He takes at least a few consecutive days off every couple weeks; considerably more during summer break.

So yea, the common idea throughout this post is keeping your tolerance under control. By the way, SWIM has heard from multiple sources that dextromethorphan(DXM) may reduce your tolerance to amphetamines.

Hope this helps.
