Adderall XR headaches

Hello,

I take 20 mg Adderal XR daily and keep getting terrible headaches in the evenings when I am "coming down." What's the best over the counter pain killer to use in this situation? Tylenol, Advil, Aspirin...?

I have had almost 1.5 litres of water today. I usually drink more. I guess I am probably getting dehydrated anyway because this Adderall makes me want to pee all the time.

I just took an Advil with a Tylenol because that's all I had with me. Taking two Advils the other night didn't seem to do anything so I'm wondering if Apirin or Tylenol will be more effective. I guess I will be carrying out my own experiments but it would be nice to hear what works for others.

Well, I don't get headaches from my Adderall, so I can't tell you what works for me. I'm wondering why they happen to you - if you're having blood pressure rises, if you're getting dehydrated, or if it's hypoglycemic headaches induced by low blood sugar because you're coming off the appetite suppressant effects.

I suffer hypoglycemic headaches all the time, which is why I have to be careful and eat around my doses. Breakfast first, then pill; by lunch I make myself eat something; by dinner it's worn off enough for normal hunger. If I skip lunch I have terrible headaches.
