Looking for a place to help you find medical relief? Mango Clinic Miami is here to provide patients both local and remote with medical services ranging from emotional support animal letters to prescription medication. Mango Clinic can help you get a prescription to Strattera from our licensed doctors, who can evaluate your situation and decide if you properly qualify. All patients are different and have their own unique situations to contend with, so we make sure each patient is treated with care. We also want to make sure patients understand the benefits and risks associated with drugs such as Strattera.

Who Is Strattera For?

Strattera is primarily used for treating ADHD, a disorder that affects many who may have had it all their lives or only started recently getting symptoms. For someone with ADHD, it can be challenging to get through the day, especially if you have work and are engaging with various people. ADHD causes a person to be easily distracted in a way they cannot control, and this is the sort of thing that can cause a person’s work to suffer. Especially under work conditions, ADHD is not something that is necessarily only affecting one person.

Outside of work, a person with ADHD might find it hard to stay focused with friends and family. They might not want to engage with friends because they know they will not be able to dedicate the right amount of time when participating with others. Because of this, they may prefer to spend time alone, but even then, they can become frustrated by their behavior. ADHD is something that is highly detrimental to one’s health, and sometimes those with the disorder do not want to admit it. This is not something anyone ever has to deal with alone, but it can be difficult. This is why drugs like Strattera exist: so that users can take control of their life and get back to feeling better about themselves and their situations.

How Does Strattera Work?

By responsibly taking Strattera, a user will be able to get back to living a more productive life, while also being able to engage with others. The drug is able to help the brain get back to a point where it is able to maintain focus and help the user stay alert. A brain under ADHD is unable to satisfy a need for activity; this is what causes a person with the disorder to be so distracted, as the brain is desperately looking for ways to stay distracted. Due to its inability to be satisfied, the mind causes the person to stay unfocused, resulting in frustration. Strattera is able to help the brain make sure it is being stimulated, which can help the brain work with neurotransmitters that allow the mind to remain calm and focused. This then helps make the user stay concentrated, focused, and alert.

Strattera Side-Effects

Strattera is an effective prescription drug, as it has been shown to be helpful for those with ADHD. However, for those interested in being prescribed Strattera, it is also important to understand the side-effects that are involved. Side-effects are fairly common with prescription drugs, and even though many know this, it is always important to understand what they are.

As with other prescription drugs, some of these side-effects are more common than others, so we will start with the most common :

  • Nausea
  • Dry mouth

These are among the most reported, which should not come as too much of a surprise, considering how prescription drugs can sometimes make users feel.

Some of the others include :

  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Appetite loss

which can be less reported but just as likely.

Among the least common side-effects are

  • Dizziness
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Abdominal pain
  • Constipation

It is always important to remember that, as unlikely as some of these side-effects can appear, they are still probable. There are also, of course, much less common side-effects that have been known to affect at least a small portion of those who have taken Strattera. These can include palpitations, migraines, liver problems, fainting, and thoughts of suicide. While some of these can be much more serious than other common side-effects, it is important to remember that they are quite rare.

Other Strattera Risks

Some risks that are not widely advertised are related to tolerance and dependence, which can lead to addiction and overdose. Drugs such as Strattera can be easily abused, which can lead to the previously mentioned side-effects but can also lead to tolerance. If your body becomes tolerant to the drugs you’re taking, you may feel a need to increase your dosage. This can lead to you becoming more dependent on the medicine, which can turn into a flown blown attention for some.

Strattera (Atomoxetine) – General Dosing Information

From there, if you really go overboard, it can result in taking so many pills that you overdose. This is a serious problem that affects a percentage of those who have taken prescription pills in the past. For these reasons, it is vital not to become addicted to your prescription medication. This is also why it is not recommended that those with addictive personalities, or who have a history of addiction, take Strattera or similar medication.

While Strattera can be extremely beneficial for those with ADHD, it can also be easy to abuse if you are not careful. For these reasons, it is important that you take care of yourself and take your medication responsibly if you decide to go through with getting prescribed.

If you would like to be prescribed Strattera, you can make an appointment to speak directly with a licensed doctor, courtesy of Mango Clinic. Our professional staff is highly trained and understands your needs; they will evaluate your situation, help you understand what it all means, and whether Strattera is right for you. There has never been a better time for being prescribed medication that can change your life for the better. Make your appointment by calling us or visiting our appointment webpage.

quillivant-2.jpg

Mango Clinic Miami is open to both South Florida locals and remote patients across the country. We are here to help people looking for relief via a variety of means, including Quillivant, a methylphenidate which can help all sorts of people. With this prescription medication, people are able to live their lives in a way that is both healthy and beneficial.

Who Is Quillivant For?

The pressures of life can lead some people not to be as healthy as they ought to. Sometimes things happen to us, and we do not notice the effects until later; by the time we notice, we may be accustomed to whatever is happening to us. Specific ailments can be with us all our lives, and we just learn to live with them, regardless of how they affect our quality of life. Other times things begin to happen in our lives that we are unsure how to handle, resulting in us feeling frustrated, and at times, frightened of what is happening. While it can be unwanted stress, it can sometimes be a disorder that we do not realize is a part of us. Even if we do recognize something is wrong, it can be hard for us to accept that, or admit that there is something in need of treatment.

Quillivant for ADHD

Among the disorders that can be treated with Quillivant is ADHD, which can be part of a person their whole lives, or it can show up later in their life. Those with ADHD are prone to feeling frustrated over feeling more agitated than usual, highly unfocused, and lacking in concentration. You might be paying attention to one thing, and then quickly turning your attention to something else, again and again. It can be highly problematic for the person with ADHD or adult ADHD, but it can also be disruptive for other people, such as coworkers and family members.

Quillivant for Narcolepsy

Narcolepsy is another disorder that can be treated with Quillivant. While not as common as ADHD, narcolepsy is a severe problem for those who have it, as it leaves them exhausted throughout the day. In addition to feeling sleepy most of the time and desperately wanting to sleep, one with narcolepsy could actually fall asleep during their regular waking hours. This is something that could happen any time, even if you are engaging in what would typically be classified as an energetic activity. This means that someone with this disorder could fall asleep during a business meeting just as easily as if they were attending a party.

Thankfully, drugs like Quillivant are ideally met to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. However, you do not have to exclusively have either of these disorders to be prescribed the medication. Those who have similar ailments related to anxiety and stress are able to be prescribed, so long as they go through the legal means of being evaluated by a licensed doctor.

How Does Quillivant Work?

A reason why Quillivant can be widely prescribed comes from how it works on the body. For those who are looking to get a prescription drug of this type, their brain is acting unusual. What is going is that the brain is desperately seeking activity that it is unable to satisfy; this is why those with ADHD cannot stay focused. When your brain seems to be looking for something new all of the time, it’s because there is something wrong that is causing it to be perpetually unsatisfied. Quillivant helps the brain release dopamine, a neurotransmitter that allows the brain to go back to normal. What releasing dopamine does is give the brain the activity it was so badly seeking; by stimulating the brain, the user is now able to be focused again.

Among the many who could benefit from Quillivant are college students, who are known to take methylphenidate for its cognitive enhancement. Since school can be extremely stressful for many students, taking drugs like Quillivant allows them to stay focused and concentrated on their studies in a way they may not have otherwise. Thanks to these prescription drugs, students are able to keep their concentration and stay alert when studying and meeting deadlines, among other things. A high percentage of students who take methylphenidates are taking it legitimately, too, as the effects are highly beneficial to their studies.

Quillivant Risks and Side-Effects

For all the benefits one can receive from such drugs, it is always important to understand the risks involved.

Common side-effects

  • Dry mouth
  • Blurry vision
  • Nausea

Psychological side-effects

There are also psychological effects, such as

  • Delusions
  • Insomnia
  • Lack of self-confidence

Some of these psychological side-effects can be just as damaging as the physical, as an unhealthy mind can do a lot of damage for people already dealing with these disorders.

Quillivant Overdose and Addiction

It is also important for a person taking Quillivant not to let their body become tolerant of the drug. What this means is that the user has taken so much of the drug in question that their body is no longer feeling the effects. This can also lead to dependence, as the user will find themselves needing to take the drug frequently, which can be terribly damaging to the mind and body. All of this can lead to the worst-case scenario of overdosing, which is something that happens with users of prescription drugs. Those who do not take their prescription meds responsibly can find themselves in a situation where they might overdose, especially if they become tolerant and dependent.

For all the risks involved, Quillivant is still a very beneficial drug for so many with ADHD, narcolepsy, and other related ailments. It can be a great help for people with similar symptoms who want to lead a more healthy and regular lifestyle. If you would like to be prescribed Quillivant or a similar drug, get in touch with Mango Clinic. Visit our website to schedule your appointment with one of our licensed physicians.

What Are Stimulants?

Mango Clinic Miami provides health services for patients who are looking for prescription medication amphetamines such as Adderall. Our staff of medical professionals understands that everyone has individual needs, and we make sure they are met to full satisfaction. If you are interested in stimulants such as Adderall, make sure you understand the reasons for being prescribed, the benefits, and risks involved.
In a busy and stressful life, it can be beneficial to have something to keep us going. Many people who do not think they have any ailment or do not have a disorder may still benefit from seeing a medical professional about their health. Even if everything seems fine, underlying issues, whether admitted or not, can be preventing a person from living a better life. Some of these people might be feeling anxiety and overstress which can cause them to exhibit symptoms associated with specific disorders.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is among these disorders, which prevents people from being as focused as they could be. This disorder can be present in individuals for many years in childhood, or it can become a more significant problem when they reach adulthood. Sometimes a person may not realize they have symptoms associated with ADHD, or they have lived with it for so long that they would rather not treat it. In any case, whether minor or severe, a person with ADHD can take stimulants such as Adderall for treatment.

What Is Adderall?

Adderall can treat a wide variety of ailments, so do not think you are excluded if you do not have ADHD. Aside from other severe cases such as narcolepsy and obesity, a patient can be prescribed Adderall if they qualify under certain conditions. If you are feeling stressed and unfocused, and if that stress and lack of focus are ruining your daily life in some way, you can qualify.
You can speak with a licensed doctor about being prescribed the medication. After an evaluation, you and your doctor will come to a decision that will work best for you. You can choose from different types of amphetamine drugs, including Adderall, which is among the most well-known amphetamines.

Adderall ADHD Stats

How Does Adderall Work?

The way stimulants like Adderall work is by going to your brain and helping release dopamine. The name “stimulants” gives away the primary process of the drug, which is to stimulate the brain, which helps release dopamine into the body. This is important because the cause of the stress or ADHD symptoms usually stems from your brain not having enough activity, which then makes you much more restless. Without an active mind, you will be unable to focus properly, as your brain will be in desperate need of stimulation.
As contradictory as it may seem, it’s the stimulated activity that allows the brain to regain focus. Instead of being distracted and unfocused, Adderall will make you alert and sharp, with increased focus and concentration. The drug’s ability to make patients more alert and focused is a big part of why people, such as college students, who deal with their own type of stress, become so interested in it. As long as you meet the conditions that make it legal to be prescribed stimulants, you should be able to get them with the help of your local and licensed physician.

Adderall Types

Adderall comes in a couple of variations, specifically

  • IR (immediate-release): IR works quickly, but it only lasts for a few hours, meaning you have to take it multiple times throughout the day.
  • XR (extended-release):   XR instead takes a bit of time to get working, but lasts for usually half of a day; this means XR is meant to only be taken once per day or every 12 hours

The differences have to do with how long the drug will last per dose, and this also varies by individual dosage from patient to patient.

Side-Effects of Adderall

ADDERALL SIDE EFFECTS
Adderall abuse and side effects

While Adderall can keep you alert and provide you with higher concentration, you should still be alert to the dangers associated with prescription drugs. Whether it’s stimulants or something else, these drugs can be a problem if you do not take them responsibly. Some of the common side-effects can include increased heart rate and hypertension, which causes a patient to feel worse than they already did. This is especially an issue since drugs like Adderall are designed to reduce stress and anxiety, making such effects highly unwanted and problematic.
Some other side-effects associated with stimulants include

  • Nausea
  • Dry mouth
  • Blurred vision
  • Muscle contractions.

Psychological Effects

In addition to physical effects, stimulants are also known to provide psychological problems as well, possibly. One of the most common is being too alert, which can cause a person to be overly active and unable to be still. This can also result in a person getting insomnia, which might be a reason why many do not recommend taking stimulants before going to bed.
Anxiety, issues with libido, and delusions can also be part of the side-effects of taking an amphetamine.

Causing Dependency And Addiction

One other issue that is not always stated has to do with dependence and tolerance. Stimulants, like other prescription drugs, can be easily abused by patients, resulting in dependence and addiction. The body can become quite used to the drugs being taken, especially if you take too many in too short of time, which might encourage a patient to increase their dose. While increasing your dose is fine and something you can do, it can be a problem in some cases. Patients who have addictive personalities might be recommended not to take stimulants and other prescription drugs for these very reasons.

Adderall can be a very helpful stimulant for many patients, but it is always important to understand exactly what the drug does and the possible side-effects involved. If you are interested in getting prescribed, then make an appointment with Mango Clinic. Our licensed doctors can help you understand the drug options available to you, the pros and cons, and which ones would be best for your individual circumstances. Mango Clinic understands that everyone has a different medical history, and we want to make sure you get the absolute best treatment possible.

Prescription-Drugs_-Amphetamines.jpg

When it comes to getting treatment for your health condition or ailment, there are many prescription drugs to choose from. It can be tricky navigating the pharmaceutical world and knowing which drug is best for you. Mango Clinic wants to help patients better traverse this world by providing helpful information that can benefit you when choosing a medication for recovery, whether it’s a relief from stress or anxiety, or ADHD treatment. In this article, we will discuss how certain amphetamines are used to treat ADD/ADHD.

What Are Amphetamines?

Known for being fairly versatile, amphetamines can be used to treat ailments that usually involve high anxiety and stress. For the most part, you will see amphetamines being used to treat ADHD, whose symptoms can include anxiety and stress. However, you may just have independent stress or anxiety; amphetamines and other related prescription drugs can be used to treat these conditions.

Amphetamines can be a popular prescription drug among people for various reasons. For those who do suffer from ADHD, it can be a very helpful drug for combating the symptoms associated, such as restlessness and inability to focus. Some people have intense stress or anxiety, which can also be taken care of with the help of amphetamines.

Anyone who wants to get amphetamines legally must be first evaluated by a licensed physician; the doctor will decide whether or not to prescribe you based on different variables. In most cases, as long as your reasons are genuine, you should be able to get a prescription.

How Do Amphetamines Work?

Amphetamines are stimulants, which means their intended purpose is to stimulate the brain. In the cases of those with ADHD, their brain is craving attention that it is not able to satisfy. This results in frustration and restlessness, as the brain cannot focus. A person with these symptoms will have a harder time being able to do complete tasks and things they normally could if they did not have ADHD.

The stimulant in question functions by going to the brain and helping it release dopamine. If dopamine is being suppressed, you will have a brain that is in a perpetual fret, wanting to distract itself in any way it can. Releasing dopamine provides the brain with the much-wanted activity it was looking for, and in turn, allows for a person to get their concentration back.

Amphetamine Side-Effects and Risks

As helpful as amphetamines can be, there are also hazards involved that some people may not consider. The most understood and broadcasted danger are side-effects, which can happen to a certain amount of people who take prescription drugs.

Some of these can be physical, such as hypertension, nausea, blurred vision, dry mouth, and sexual dysfunction, along with more severe effects like a stroke or heart attack. There are also psychological side-effects such as depression and loss of libido, among others. You can even become more restless and frustrated due to amphetamines, though this is very rare.

One major hazard associated with amphetamines is abuse, which can lead to overdosing. If you become too dependent on amphetamines, it can be very easy to take more than you should or ask your doctor for a higher dosage. A decent percentage of amphetamine users are susceptible to abuse, which has led to overdoses and emergency room visits. If you feel you might become addicted to your prescription meds, it is not recommended that you start taking amphetamines.

Types of Amphetamines

People can think that stimulants are either too dangerous or outright illegal. However, this is obviously not true, as many popular prescription drugs are actually amphetamines. All the same, if you are interested in amphetamines, it can be tricky knowing what counts and what does not. We decided to run down a few of the most well-known amphetamines on the market, all of which can be prescribed to you by a licensed doctor.

Adderall

When people come up with a name for a popular amphetamine, Adderall is one of the first that comes to mind. It is primarily aimed towards treating ADHD and narcolepsy but can also be used for those with high stress and anxiety. Adderall is a unique combination of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine that goes to work on the brain by altering the chemicals and neurons responsible for keeping and releasing dopamine.

Dexedrine

Dexedrine is mostly used for treating ADHD in children, along with narcolepsy. It helps with attention spans by altering the chemicals and neurotransmitters in your brain.

Focalin

Focalin is available in both a regular release and extended-release format, which allows for a user to either take the drug every few hours or roughly once per day. It helps with a person’s ADHD symptoms such as restlessness, overactivity, and inability to control impulses.

Ritalin

Known under many other brand names and variations, Ritalin can also be found as Aptensio, Concerta, Metadate, Methylin, and Quillivant. 

Vyvanse

Vyvanse is targeted towards patients who have ADHD and similar ailments, but it is also recommended to patients with eating disorders. The chemical changes the drug makes to the brain allows for ADHD patients to regain their focus and for eating disorder patients to not give in to their habitual impulses.

How-Long-Does-Vyvanse-Stay-in-Your-System_.jpg

How Long Does Vyvanse Stay in Your System?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a treatable medical condition that affects both adults and children. ADHD is diagnosed based on specific criteria that include a complete history and evaluation by a healthcare provider. Although most people were diagnosed with ADHD during there youth, it is possible for an adult not to be diagnosed until later in life. In this article, we will go back to discussing Vyvanse and its effects on one’s body.

Despite some common misconceptions, children do not grow out of this disorder, symptoms change over time and what may have been an issue during their youth may not be once the patient has reached maturity. Although some individuals may not have been diagnosed until adulthood, the disorder was always present. It is believed that some children are capable of creating coping mechanisms and masking the telltale signs of ADHD. Once the demands of work and family life changed, what once worked to hide the symptoms no longer effective leading to frustration, confusion and often anxiety. 

Although the symptoms of ADHD differ from person to person, common ones do exist. Listed below are just a few that are often seen in adults with this condition. 

ADHD Symptoms:

  • Makes careless mistakes and lacks attention to details
  • Often has difficulty paying attention to tasks
  • Seems not to listen when spoken to directly
  • Fails to follow through on instructions or duties in the workplace
  • Lack of organizational skills
  • Avoids participating in jobs that require sustained mental effort
  • Loses thing easily
  • Easily distracted by other things including unrelated thoughts
  • Forgetfulness
  • Restlessness 
  • Unable to participate in leisure activities
  • Excessive talking
  • Difficulty waiting on others
  • Often interrupts or intrudes on others

These symptoms can affect individuals at home, work or in social situations. To be diagnosed, five or more of these symptoms must occur for at least six months and be present in two or more settings. Additionally, there must be clear evidence that the symptoms interfere with a person’s social or work functions and that they are not due to another mental health disorder. 

 

ADHD Medications

Since ADHD was first recognized as a separate mental health disorder, researchers have studied ways to help individuals cope. The two ADD/ADHD treatments that currently show the most benefit are therapy and medications. While therapy is often an excellent place to learn effective coping mechanisms, drugs have been developed that help patients function normally.

Vyvanse is a prescription medication that was developed to treat adults who have ADHD. It is designed to increase attention while decreasing impulsiveness. Approved in 2007 by the FDA, Vyvanse is a prodrug, and its side effects are considered to be less harsh than other ADHD medications. A prodrug is an inert substance that is metabolized in the body to become an active medication; in this case dextroamphetamine. Dextroamphetamine increases the availability of dopamine and norepinephrine in the central nervous system. These chemicals work together to maintain alertness, increase focus and sustain thought, effort, and motivation.

How Long Does Vyvanse Stay in Your Urine?

Drug tests are often used to screen for the presence of amphetamines. Not only can they detect the parent drug but the metabolites left behind as the drug is processed as well. Individuals who are prescribed certain medications should be aware that if their employer requires random drug screening, those who take Vyvanse will receive a positive test. Proper documentation such as a current prescription should be readily available if a drug screening is administered. 

Vyvanse is currently only available in an extended-release capsule. The effects of this medication will last from 10-14 hours after administration, but it can be screened for in the urine up to three days after usage even if a second dosage is not administered.

Some people may process Vyvanse faster than others depending on the rate their body metabolizes it. Also, younger, healthier and even larger people tend to eliminate medications more quickly than others. Those who have health problems or organ function impairment excrete drugs slower.

Blood screenings for  Vyvanse use have a relatively short detection window. Approximately eight hours after using this medication, a blood test will not indicate usage. In fact, the window is so short that Vyvanse is very rarely detected by this method. 

Medical practitioners often require drug screenings when prescribing amphetamines to their patients. This type of drug can be highly addictive and is often abused. To ensure that prescribing recommendations have been followed, routine testing may be ordered to verify the amount of Vyvanse in the patient’s system. Individuals who have been taking it as prescribed should not worry. However, if too much of this powerful drug is detected, your provider may discontinue its use. The FDA lists Vyvanse as a Schedule II class drug and is considered dangerous if not carefully monitored. 

If Vyvanse is used by someone who it was not prescribed, they can experience side effects such as irritability, anxiety and sleep disturbances. Rarely individuals, including those who have a prescription for its use, can have more severe complications such as panic attacks, hallucinations, mania, delusions, and paranoia. Be sure to discuss anything unusual with your mental health provider. 

If you think Vyvance might help you get in contact with Mango Clinic in Miami to schedule an appointment with one of their physicians specializing in helping ADHD patients.

What Is Adderall and How To Buy It In Miami

Do you ever feel more restless than usual? Maybe you feel more tired than you have in the past. It could be something in your diet, or it could be something natural within the body. Perhaps you are finding yourself unable to concentrate very well; this could be something that has been developing for years or it just started happening to you. You could be exhibiting symptoms for ADHD, which would explain the restlessness and unease you are having. It is not unusual for adults to have ADHD; the symptoms may include agitation, inability to focus, and feeling hyperactive. There are different ways to treat ADD/ADHD; one of the common ones include Adderall. It is always important to understand how the medication affects you as it may have different short and long term effects. How long does Adderall last? In this piece, we are going to give you some insights on that.

 

Narcolepsy, which is a sleep disorder that has you feeling sleepier than normal, might be another condition treatable with Adderall. For those with narcolepsy, you can find yourself wanting to sleep during the day, and in some cases, will fall asleep. The sight of someone with narcolepsy just falling asleep during a regular daily activity is thus not that unusual when the condition is understood. While an actual doctor’s exam is needed to determine if you do or don’t have narcolepsy, it is important to understand that a lack of hypocretin is usually the cause.

 

Mango Clinic can help you better understand whether any symptoms you have are related to ADHD or narcolepsy. Located near Downtown Miami, our clinic is dedicated to helping you combat whatever illness or ailment you may have. Whether it’s physical, psychological, or both, our experienced and certified staff of doctors can assist you in finding the very best help possible. Through examinations and evaluations, we can help you discover ways to get you feeling better, including prescriptions for well-regarded and helpful medication.

 

Adderall for ADHD and Narcolepsy

 

ADHD and narcolepsy don’t exactly have much in common, but there is a reason we brought them both up;  Adderall may be used for treating both. This is a combination drug that is used on the central nervous system that causes varying effects on a person. Adderall is used to treat both ADHD and narcolepsy, as it is used as a cognitive enhancer, which allows a person to heighten their focus and attention in ways they otherwise could not.

What is Adderall and how long does Adderall last?
Adderall is a Schedule II combination drug consisting of different amphetamine salts.

 

Adderall takes two amphetamine enantiomers and uses them to alleviate the symptoms of ADHD and narcolepsy. The results associated with this include increased focus, feeling more awake, and improving your cognitive functions. With a regular low dosage, a person can experience positive effects from Adderall, allowing them the chance to live a more regular life. However, Adderall is also easily abused; in addition to improving focus and cognitive recognition, it is also known for making one feel euphoric. The better feeling it provides to a person can be easily taken advantage of, causing a person to abuse the amount they would normally be prescribed.

 

It’s also important to understand the side-effects involved. For one thing, you can find yourself being dependent on Adderall, and this in itself is a possible danger, but it can be prevented ahead of time. As long as you understand that this drug should not be abused, and you can stick to that, addiction to Adderall should be avoidable. Some other psychological side-effects include having a greater air of confidence, mood swings, being more alert, and insomnia. Physical side-effects vary from person to person but can include dry mouth, fatigue, hypertension, erectile dysfunction, weight loss, and blurred vision.

 

How Does Adderall Work And How Long Does Adderall Last

 

It starts with the brain’s lack of dopamine, which is located in what is known as the brain’s reward center. This area is what tends to cause motivation for doing things, so people often want to stimulate their brain’s reward center. When dopamine, a major neurotransmitter, is lacking, it can cause a person to lose their focus because they are unknowingly seeking distractions. It’s the release of dopamine that can cause a person to not be as anxious or agitated, and this is what Adderall does for the brain.

 

As an amphetamine, Adderall stimulates any stagnate dopamine and releases it, which allows for the brain to function more regularly. By stimulating the very thing that causes you stimulation with motivation and distraction, you are able to actually treat common ADHD symptoms.

 

How Long Does It Take for Adderall to Kick In

Understand how prescription medications might affect you

So, how long does Adderall last? The time it takes for Adderall to affect you will depend on whether you are getting Adderall Immediate Release (IR) or Extended Release (XR). Adderall IR will last around four hours; it needs to be taken throughout the day in order for the person to keep its effects going. Adderall XR can last an entire 12 hours, while the drug itself can stay in your system a full 24 hours.

 

The amount of time traces of these drugs stay within your system also vary, since XR is a much stronger type than IR. Since IR is not as strong, traces of it within your body do not usually last longer than a couple of days. This is not the case with XR, which can leave traces lasting around four days, due to its higher concentration and stronger effects.

 

If you decide you would like to take Adderall, be sure you understand the possible consequences and side-effects of doing so. Adderall could be just what you need to find relief, allow you to refocus well again, and keep you alert.

Adderall IR – ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

As time has gone on, and you have grown older and held down a job, do you find yourself feeling more agitated? Do you feel a bit more nervous, restless, or even unfocused? Is it possible that you are having trouble concentrating, not just on work, but day-to-day activities? Maybe you are getting more easily distracted, while also feeling more tired than usual. You are not exactly sure why this is, either. It could be something you’ve had since childhood and it never truly manifested until now, or maybe you’ve always had it and you just got used to it. In any case, you might have to face the possibility that you had symptoms of ADHD. Commonly detected when you’re young, ADHD is something that affects adults as well, and it can be disruptive to their lives. Instead of living a regular well-adjusted life, you have to cope with the various symptoms that afflict you on a daily basis. However, it does not have to be this way; help for adults with ADHD does exist and they can be combated in different ways; ADHD treatment in Miami could include counseling, medications (e.g. Vyvance, Adderall IR or Adderall XR), or a combination of both.  If you think that you or your loved ones suffer from ADHD, don’t wait. Contact Mango Clinic Miami to get professional help from an experienced doctor.

 

Something else that can afflict adults is narcolepsy, which can cause you to be sleepy during hours where sleeping is not the norm. You may be at a business meeting, socializing with friends, or having lunch, when you will get the sudden urge to fall asleep. In some cases, you may actually do just that. This disorder can be evaluated, diagnosed, and treated with the help of a licensed physician. By seeing a medical professional, you will be able to know if you actually have the symptoms of narcolepsy and get the right help for recovery.

 

Both of these ailments can be treated by Mango Clinic Miami. Featuring licensed doctors and staff, we can help you find the relief you need by figuring out what you have and discovering the best options for you. Every patient is different, so we take great care to treat each patient’s individual’s needs carefully and thoroughly. There exist many ways to take care of these disorders, one of which has proven to be immensely helpful for millions around the world.

 

What is Adderall IR

 

Both ADHD and narcolepsy can be treated with the amphetamine Adderall, which has existed for several decades and has provided much-needed relief for people the world over. It’s combined chemical makeup works with the nervous system and brain to provide you with more focus, attention, and response. By enhancing one’s cognitive abilities, Adderall has proven to be a beneficial medication for those suffering from ADHD and narcolepsy’s symptoms.

Adderall IR 20 mg appearance

 

When taking Adderall IR (Immediate Release) in low doses, it can be very effective in alleviating and treating stress, inattention, and irritation. It can even help you focus on your studies if you’re a student, which has made it popular among the college-aged crowd. But while Adderall has proven itself as genuinely effective, as well as popular, it can also be easily abused.

 

Taking advantage of how much medication you get is nothing new, but Adderall has some notoriety in this field. If you think it could be dangerous to take it due to reasons of addiction, you may choose not to. Otherwise, be aware of the risks when taking Adderall and make sure you never take more than is prescribed for you. You should also be aware of any potential side-effects that could incur from Adderall. Outside of addiction, you may possibly have weight loss, dry mouth, insomnia, mood swings, fatigue, blurred vision, and sexual dysfunction.

 

How Does Adderall IR Work

 

Understand the risks of taking Adderall

Adderall IR is the most common type, but all types work in a similar way of helping your brain releases dopamine. Those who have ADHD tend to have low amounts of dopamine, which is a neurotransmitter usually situated within the brain’s reward system. You might be familiar with the reward system: you do something because of the incentive that comes from completing the activity or goal in question.

 

The reward system located inside our brains is what motivates us to do things like eating food, drinking liquids, and procreating. When you are lacking in dopamine, your brain will not be able to focus like it normally would. What Adderall does as amphetamine is stimulating your brain by getting at the dopamine that refused to get with your brain’s receptors. By doing this, Adderall helps the brain release dopamine and makes sure it continues to do so.

 

How Long Does Adderall IR Take to Kick In

 

As the more common and basic version of Adderall, IR takes around an hour for effect. This effect lasts for about four hours or so; in order to keep the effects going, you would need to take it periodically throughout the day. This is also why abuse is a factor, since someone may not think they have enough Adderall dosage for effect. It can stay in your system for the few hours it has its effect, and it can take a couple of days for it to entirely leave your system.

 

Since Adderall can provide a very calming and euphoric feeling in the people who take it, you must always be careful of how much you decide to get. While proven to be very helpful for those who need it, some may think that the dosage they have is not enough for them. This is also why doctors tend to prescribe low dosages since it’s such an easy drug to abuse. Always keep in mind the risks involved with taking Adderall, as it has been shown to be a real problem. As long as you take only as much as you’re given, your treatment should be healthy and effective.

 

If you think that taking Adderall can help, then don’t let the chance slip away. Contact us here at Mango Clinic Miami and get yourself evaluated by a licensed medical doctor. Our clinic located near downtown Miami will be able to evaluate you and help you understand the symptoms associated with ADHD and narcolepsy, as well as whether Adderall is right for you.

Adderall IR & XR Explained.

Adderall pill exampleAdderall is the brand name for a prescription medication most commonly used for symptoms associated with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). A Schedule II controlled substance, Adderall is the combination of two pre-existing stimulants: amphetamine and dextroamphetamine. With the right amount of dosage, Adderall has been shown to treat symptoms such as hyperactivity and inattention, traits which are commonly associated with ADD/ADHD. The use of Adderall has thus allowed patients to better handle and control their symptoms. Can Adderall help me?

There are two types of Adderall that can be prescribed: Adderall IR (Immediate Release) and Adderall XR (Extended Release). Both types have equal dosage options, with minor differences.

Adderall IR can be taken within a 24-hour time frame multiple times in equally-divided doses, whereas Adderall XR can only be taken once per day. The doses included for both are:

5 mg (IR and XR)

7.5 mg (IR only)

10 mg (IR and XR)

15 mg (IR and XR)

20 mg (IR and XR)

25 mg (XR only)

30 mg (IR and XR)

 

Dosage Options for Adderall in Miami

The effects of IR are usually felt within an hour, but since everyone’s body is different, the actual time frame can vary. If you don’t find yourself having any effects, it could be something in your body that is preventing the medication from working, such as a substantial amount of vitamin C. It can help to take the medication an hour before eating and before taking any vitamin C. In some cases, you just may need a higher dosage, so contact your physician if you feel this may be the case.

The right Adderall dosage can vary from person to person since both children and adults can be prescribed the medication. The dosage will be prescribed by your physician, and while a low dosage is common when starting out, it can be increased if needed. Dosage variation on a single individual becomes more normalized once they reach adulthood; prior to this, the dosage can vary from year to year. Because of this, it’s recommended that the prescription for children be reviewed once per year.

While children can safely take Adderall, the ages differ with regards to Adderall IR and XR. As per the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), no children under three years can take IR, and no children under six years can take XR. What is the right dosage?

 

Symptoms for Taking AdderallEffects of Adderall

The exact symptoms related to ADD/ADHD are not always clear, so it helps to understand if you may experience these symptoms, which would then allow you to be prescribed Adderall. Disorganization, fidgeting, lack of focus, and forgetfulness are among the symptoms that can be treated by Adderall, along with excessive talking and general anxiety.

The symptoms can also vary among individuals, depending on their sex and age. Children can be harder to diagnose, due to the uncertainty of whether or not their behavior can be connected to symptoms related to ADD/ADHD or narcolepsy. Adults, as well as older teens, can be easier to diagnose, but it can still vary from person to person, such as younger boys and girls exhibiting different symptoms from each other.

It’s also important to remember the side effects that come from taking Adderall. These include dizziness, restlessness, insomnia, dry mouth, increase in blood pressure, and anxiety. Along with these sorts of side effects, there’s the added danger of addiction. Due to the euphoric feeling it can provide, some people may find themselves dependent on Adderall, and this can lead to abuse. It’s possible that taking Adderall may not be the best solution for you, in which case you should always talk with your physician as to whether this is true, and which alternatives exist in place of Adderall.

How-Does-Sugar-Impact-ADHD_-1-e1552241861256.jpg

How Does Sugar Impact ADHD?

Do you know the impact of sugar on your ADHD? Reports from a Yale University study show increased inattention in ADD patients who consumed high-sugar diets. The University of South Carolina conducted another research. It has also shown that hyperactive children who consume large amounts of sugar tend to be more restless and destructive. However, other studies found no correlation between high sugar intake and increased hyperactivity in ADD patients. The truth is that sugar affects the functioning of the brain and since ADD is a neurological condition, sugar does have some effect on ADD symptoms.

How Your Body Processes Sugar

Sugar comes in many forms including sucrose, corn sweetener, dehydrated cane juice, corn syrup, dextrin, dextrose, maltodextrin, malt syrup, sorghum syrup, maltose, rice syrup, saccharose, molasses, and sorghum. When you consume carbohydrates, the body converts them into glucose (a kind of sugar), which the muscles and organs (including the brain) use as an energy source. The neurons within the brain are unable to store glucose, and as such, they require a constant and steady supply. If the neurons within the brain receive a larger than normal supply of glucose, the body tends to become hyperactivity and experience sugar crashes. It should be noted, however, that there is “good” and “bad” sugar.

“Good” and “Bad” Sugar

“Good” sugar is obtained from the breaking down of complex carbohydrates and fruits. Complex carbohydrate takes longer to be processed and digested, and as such, they release energy (in the form of glucose) to the body over an extended period. Fruits release glucose at a steady rate due to the presence of fiber. On the other hand, “bad” sugar refers to the refined sugar present in soda, candy, and cookies. The effects of refined sugar are almost instantaneous. The brain becomes flooded with glucose, resulting in the release of serotonin which makes you feel happy. The spike in the level of blood sugar causes the pancreas to produce large quantities of insulin, in a bid to absorb the sugar. Once this happens, you will begin to “crash,” causing feelings of tiredness and loss of focus.

Effects of Excessive Sugar Intake

Consuming large amounts of sugar over time leads to memory loss, issues with processing information, anxiety, and depression. All of these are symptoms adults with ADHD and ADD tend to exhibit. Aside from obesity and diabetes, adults with ADHD are susceptible to hyperactivity, fatigue, mood swings, insomnia, alcoholism, drug addictions, etc., all of which are exacerbated by the intake of large amounts of sugar.

Does Sugar Worsen the Symptoms of ADHD?

There are no studies showing that sugar causes ADHD or ADD. Nevertheless, too much of it could result in behavioral tendencies that mimic its symptoms. It is obvious that sugar does worsen the symptoms in patients with the disorder. Therefore, it is a good idea to watch your sugar intake, especially refined sugar. Eating a healthy, balanced diet ensures a stable, steady supply of blood sugar for your body all through the day. This will lead to increased mental focus, balanced moods and improved attention.

Some ADD patients believe that mega doses of minerals and vitamins can help alleviate the symptoms. There is little evidence that nutritional supplements can help manage ADD. In some cases, such supplements interact with and affect the functioning of ADD medications such as Adderall.

It is always best to talk with a professional about the symptoms of ADD. Discover what the best type of diet for ADD patients is. Some foods and supplements may worsen the symptoms. The good news is that ADHD/ADD is a manageable condition and with the right professional help, you can live a remarkably productive life.
