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 ?
