Trying to come off of Adderall?
Anyone that has ever taken Adderall knows that it can become addicting, the side effects are annoying, and it can become a real problem.
In this article, we discuss some of the ways we can use CBD, as well as other supplements, to aid in our efforts in coming off of Adderall. Here are some of the talking points.
With some Adderall users, the drug causes heightened levels of anxiety, from mild to severe. And for others, it can actually help treat cases of anxiety, and when they try and come off, their anxiety increases again.
This all depends on the person, the dosage, the length of continued use, as well as other factors.
Point being, everyone is different. Although this is not proven by the FDA (we have to say that), we pretty much can see that CBD helps with anxiety. So whether or not Adderall triggers or helps your anxiety, CBD may help with your ability to balance back out.
Most known for helping people relax, L-theanine has many other potential health benefits, including anxiety, stress relief, increased focus, better immunity, tumor and cancer treatment, blood pressure control, improved sleep, and sinus relief.
Pairing CBD with L-Theanine can be an amazing combination when fighting to come off of Adderall. So when you’re coming off, and you can’t focus, and your anxiety is messing with you, and you can’t sleep, both CBD and L-Theanine help with those issues.
According to Psychology Today, “L-theanine helps to lower levels of the stress hormone corticosterone, and avoid the interference with memory and learning.””Research shows L-theanine can increase attention span and reaction time in people who are prone to anxiety”
“Sometimes, L-theanine is used with caffeine to enhance cognitive skills. Studies show that combinations of L-theanine and caffeine can improve attention span, enhance the ability to process visual information, and increase accuracy when switching from one task to another.”
“5-HTP works in the brain and central nervous system by increasing the production of the chemical serotonin. Serotonin can affect sleep, appetite, temperature, sexual behavior, and pain sensation. Since 5-HTP increases the synthesis of serotonin, it is used for several diseases where serotonin is believed to play an important role including depression, insomnia, obesity, and many other conditions.”
Because of the fact that anxiety and depression can go hand in hand, 5-HTP paired with CBD may mediate your anxiety and increase your serotonin levels, while you crash coming off of Adderall.
One of the biggest reasons why some people take Adderall in the first place is because it gives them a huge boost in energy. When coming off of that, your energy levels are bound to drop in the short term, until your body can balance back out.
Caffeine will help boost your energy, you just have to use the right amount and take it responsibly. Whether that be in the form of coffee, a vape, pill, or drink, it should help give you just enough to get through coming off of Adderall.
When CBD works to balance your stress and anxiety, it can give you the ability to calm down, which will then help you get better sleep. Here’s a little video from Dr. Oz that goes in-depth with CBD.
According to the Sleep Doctor, “CBD has the ability to reduce anxiety, which can be helpful in reducing sleep difficulties and improving sleep quality. CBD may increase overall sleep amounts, and improve insomnia, according to research. CBD has been shown to reduce insomnia in people who suffer from chronic pain.”
