I have ADD and taking Adderall 20 mg twice daily. Usually, my sleep is good and rarely I may feel difficult to sleep. Also, I only take prescription when I am supposed to. But, for the past one week, I am unable to sleep. I took my sleeping pills and still just could not sleep. As till early morning I am not getting sleep, I started having the worst panic attacks. I kept thinking the worst thoughts and somehow ended up passing out. Then, I become normal after two hours and took my Adderall. If the same thing happens again, then what can I do to help myself?

I am using Adderall for a month. I have not tried lowering the evening dose. I will give it a try. My psychiatrist told me just to take a half but if it does not work, then can boost to 20 mg. When I used 10 mg, my concentration was still really off. So, I just used 20 mg and it has been helping me stay on task. As for the natural sleeping pills, I am using a supplement called Natural Rest Plus. Normally, I do sleep well with 20 mg Adderall. I would say that the sleeping problem is more random than anything.
