Asleep on Adderall
September 18, 2013 7:23 PM Subscribe
I work full time, 8-5, and I also go to school online, which means I start my academic work every day when I get off work. Thus, I need to take my prescribed ADD meds much later than what I would consider ideal. Of course, this makes it tougher to fall asleep. Help me!

I've been managing ok but I would like to be able to find ways to manage better.
I know taking it earlier would solve the problem but that's not an option for me right now if I want to do as well as I need to in my classes.
things I am using now that work ok but not quite well enough: passionflower, benadryl, melatonin, hops tincture
I am looking for...
1) Other Rx suggestions that work well in tandem with adderall I can discuss with my Dr
2) Any other remedies to mute the effects of adderall when I need to so I can sleep
3) Any other ideas I'm not thinking of that you think would be helpful.
