JChris Posted September 12, 2012 Report Share Posted September 12, 2012 A few weeks ago I was just put on Adderall which is an ADD medication, which the active ingredient is dextro amphetamine, yes amphetamine. Ive notcied that since taking it, how much my anxiety has been deminished, and overall dp/dr symptoms deminish to where I can for the most part forget that Ive even have any problems. Ive started to feel enjoyment and excitment for activities I do as opposed to feeling pretty numb in times of bad, but especially good, when I know I should be feeling good but am unable to reach the reward of feeling euphoria. Alas when the drug starts to wear off, I get that same old feeling Ive had slowly return. While everythings smooth sailing while Im on it, it doesnt feel like i did pre dp/dr 100%, but it still feels like im going in the right direction of how I used to feel before this hell was brought upon me. I wonder since amphetamine works quite strongly on your dopamine receptors in your brain would it be quite feasible to say that in part that people who suffer from dp/dr might have abnormally low levels of dopamine being released in their brains as opposed to a healthy person who has no symptoms of dp/dr? 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
