I am a 31 yr female.. I am on 30 mg of adderal a day an 100 mg methadone.. I started getting sweats/chills after being on the adderal for 4 months..I herd the adderal cuts your methadone in half an also herd it increases it..so not sure which one is correct..All i wanna know is the mixture causing the sweats or is it because I cut back on the adderal to one every other day or fewdays..how can iI fix this ? I thought if it was cutting it in half I'd try an get my methadone mg raised..I just want to feel normal..I'm on methadone because I had a prescription pill problem an was sick if I didn't have it..now I'm on methadone an I still get some of the same side effects as if I wasn't on anything..
