How To Fall Asleep On Adderall

How to fall asleep fast on adderall? Well, if you have taken adderall close to bed time then you will have a lot of problems in falling asleep because of the power this pill has.


In most cases, you won’t be able to fall asleep at all and the best thing to do is to not take it at night. We would actually advice you don’t take any adderall after 4PM. There is a strong link between adderall and sleep deprivation and this happens especially when it is taken late in the afternoon (taking it at night is obviously a no-no). If you didn’t sleep on adderall even if you did take it earlier than 4PM, then you may need to go even lower. Test things out and see how you do. Go for 3PM and then 2PM and so on until you find the soft spot. Don’t change the hours every day. Take 2-3 days to test for a certain hour and if it doesn’t seem to work, change it on day 4 maybe. 

This pill is used to increase your alertness and to help you focus better while, at the same time, it will make your tiredness disappear.

The best solution is not to take it unless you have a big exam that you need to study for or if you have some sort of important thing to get done that can’t be postponed.

If you did take one and now you finished what you had to do and need to fall asleep you might want to try the old tricks of taking a hot bath for about 15 minutes or if that does not work you should try to do something that will drain the energy out of you.

Maybe something like going for a run, playing basketball, trying to read a real hard book, dancing, do physical work or something that usually make you sleepy.

If you will try reading, it might not work that well because you might need a bit more physical work involved, so maybe a combination between these two would be more appropriate. Again, test and see what works for you. If nothing works, also ask your doctor what he/she recommends.
