Some of the symptoms and drugs I added are not 100 percent correct I just could not find them in the drop downs. I just selected what I thought was closest.
I can't stop lying. Impulsively it just comes out. Also I can't help myself with pornography. It's like i don't have control over myself.
I am always tired except at night. I seem to get energy at night.

Male, 34, Caucasian, Overall good health. Been taking Adderall for several months. My dosage has increased to 60mg a day, three 20mg tabs. My right elbow has become increasingly more painful. If I don't take a pill for a little while it feels better. As soon as I take one or two it begins to feel painfully sore and tender, worse with the more I take. I cannot pick up light objects, cannot squeeze my fist. I feel that my extreme elbow pain is directly related to Adderall.

For the individual who said he is always tired in the day and wakes up at night, try an Adrenal Saliva Test. I am the same way. My cortisol levels are opposite of they are supposed to be. They are very low in the morning (making it difficult to wake up) and spike at night (making it difficult to sleep). The drug Cortef also Hydro-cortisone can increase cortisol in the AM and an herbal supplement called Calm CP by Neuroscience, Inc reduces cortisol at night. It works so far for me
