When I take my adderall all is good but when I come down off of it my heart starts beating really fast which worries me. Is this normal and will it go away with time?

I'm not sure as this is only my 2nd day on adderall and I haven't had that experience. If I were I would definetly talk to my doctor about this. This could be very serious.

What type of adderall do you take and after how many hours do you experience this rapid heartbeat?

I take the generic pharmacorp Adderall.
Sounds like you're experiencing something similar to what I did. I got the generic adderall from hell, which is made by Barr. The first 2 or 3 times I took it I could feel it helping and when I came down it wasn't too bad but within a week I was a wreck. While on it I was really confused and aggressive, snapping at everyone and when I came down I was depressed, crying, almost suicidal. I had head aches and I could feel my heart pounding hours after taking it, after coming down as you said. I requested my doc give me another prescription and got the name brand. Alot more expensive and they had to order it in, but theres such a big difference in how I feel on it. It makes me productive for about 5-7 hours (adderall IR) and I feel just a little sleepy when it wears off, sometimes I don't even notice.

wow! It sounds like a huge difference between the generic and name brand Adderall. Unfortunately I can't afford the name brand right now as I have crappy insurance. That sucks.

This is exactly what it does to me when it wears off. I keep questioning if I should stay on it or not. When it works I think "yea, this med. really helps", but when I come down I say "man, i simply cannot stand this horrible comedown every day". Its absolutely horrible. During the day time I love Adderall, during the afternoon/night I absolutely hate it. I hope this comedown goes away with time. I was prescribed the same exact thing last year around this time and don't remember the comedown being anything near as bad as it is now.

Adderall XR sucks for me. That crap gives me brain shocks and makes me feel like the aliens are trying to beam me up to space. I take generic Adderall. Not sure who manufactures it but it is pink with crosses on it. I love it. It is even my favorite color! :D
