ADDERALL

HAVE NEVER POSTED ANYTHING TO THE INTERNET, SO IF THIS LOOKS OUT OF PLACE I APOLOGIZE. I WAS READING ON THIS WEBSITE MEMBERS ACCOUNTS OF GOING OFF OF ADDERALL AND HOW THAT HAS HAD A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON MARRIAGE. THE ACTUAL PROBLEM I AM CERTAIN, IS THE ADDERALL IN THE FIRST PLACE. IT RECONFIGURES THE BRAIN TO CREATE A SELF ABSORBED PERSON. IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR A SELF ABSORBED PERSON WHO HAS NO EMPATHY TO BE A GOOD MARRIAGE PARTNER.  I'VE SEEN THE MOST SENSATIVE GOOD PEOPLE TURNED TO STONE BY THIS DRUG. IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL. MY WIFE, SOON TO BE EXWIFE. WAS TRANSFORMED BY A COMBINATION OF THIS DRUG AND ANTI DEPRESSANTS. SHE WAS AN AMAZING MOTHER AND NOW COULD TAKE OR LEAVE OUR CHILDREN, SHE LIES ONLY WHEN AWAKE. SHE STOPPED GOING TO CHURCH SHORTLY AFTER THIS DRUG WAS INTRODUCED TO HER. BEFORE THIS SHE WOULD TELL ANYONE SHE LOVED CHURCH AND FAMILY. SHE PRETENDED ADD WHEN IN FACT SHE TAKES ADDERRALL TO LOSE WEIGHT DUE TO EATING DISORDERS. SO EIGHT GREAT YEARS TOGETHER WENT DOWN THE DRAIN AND I AM LEFT WITH TWO VERY SMALL CHILDREN WHO HAVE A NARCISSIST FOR A MOTHER WHO ONCE DOTED ON THEM. MERCK AND PFIZER AND WHO KNOWS WHO ELSE KEEP MAKING THERE BILLIONS WHILE THEY HAVE LEFT MY WIFE A WRECK MY CHILDREN BROKEN AND ME FRUSTRATED AND AMAZED. PEOPLE WHO SAY IT WORKS FOR THEM NEED TO ASK THE PEOPLE AROUND THEM IF THEY THINK IT WORKS FOR THEM. YOU MAY BE IN YOU'RE  OWN LITTLE SELFISH WORLD HURTING OTHERS WITHOUT REALIZING OR CARING. THE DOPAMINE WON'T LET YOU CARE. ITS A VERY NEW WORLD WITH ALL THESE PRESCRIPTION DRUGS BUT IT IS NOT A BETTER ONE. R

So sorry this is happening in your family.  It must be heartbreaking.  I grieve with you and know of your confusion and disappointment.

From your post, the

From your post, the narcissism might possibly have been an underlying condition your wife had before she started taking Adderall. For her to get the Adderall, she had to pretend convincingly enough that she had ADD/ADHD for the doctor to prescribe the Adderall, correct?  Is the same doctor prescribing the anti depressants? If not, the two medications might be working against each other. The doctor really ought to know what's going on.

I'm sorry this has happened

I'm sorry this has happened to your family.  My children and husband are all diagnosed ADD and have all been on several different medications.  Adderall appears to be working the best for all of them.  The medication helps some of their symptoms with very little side effects.  

I do know this medication can be very dangerous for those without ADD to take.  I, unfortunately, know several women who have abused this medication to lose weight and gain more energy.  I was close enough with these women to know they needed professional counselling for other issue unrelated to their misuse of the drug.  

I'm not arguing the medication had nothing to do with your wife's change.  However, I'm suggesting there are/were possibly other issues not addressed that the medication is effecting.  

I would suggest a possible intervention if you truly believe your wife is abusing a drug that is doing more damage?  Is it possible to suggest her switching her ADD medications just to see what happens first?
