12 Jan 2012 i love the focus, and how social it makes me. Also the increase in my grades i went from a 1.0 GPA student to a 3.12GPA. but the things i hate about it is the insomnia, racing thoughts, mood swings, anxiety, and depresseion, when it wheres off. It feels like all you wanna do is sleep but all you can do is lay in bed and wait to go to sleep. finaly my sexdrive has gone down, along with my penis size when non erect. then when i am doing stuff with my gf its very hard to keep it up, and get it out... thats all i'll say. ha but other than that adderall XR is a pretty swell drug.
