They put me on Adderall XR 25mg for my ADHD. I'm also on lithium carbonate er and neurontin. I was on the adderall for one week and now I'm still having symptoms of psychosis. I'm hallucinating and having a hard time distinguishing what is real and what isn't. I still have extreme paranoia as well. I've been off of it for about a month. When I was on it I didn't talk to anybody cause I was delusional and believed EVERYONE had hidden intentions to destroy me (even those closest to me). I still have some of that. I just want all the psychosis to stop. It's stressing me out. Anyone having any suggestions to help? I hallucinate shadows and people and hearing my name. I see people looking at me and I feel like they're judging me and planning something.
