I have all the faith in the world in my Neurologist. I was given Adderall because I asked for them and she mentioned them for energy on a past visit. I don’t think my diabetes was the issue with the Adderall. My body just did not get along with the amphetamine that I was given. My PCP told me that they had much better alternatives for energy, so I will ask them for the better alternatives if need them.

Thank you for a thoughtful and long response. I am happy to survived and be here regardless of why or how I had the reaction. I have just heard to my anecdotal stories, and yes they may not be true, but I just wanted to share my experience and give the same anecdotal warning.

I am grateful for the lessons I learned and I am happy to share the story for what it’s worth. Even if it results in someone thinking, “what a fool this guy is.”
