Currently taking 30mg Adderal per day. It keeps
me awake longer. I don't want to continue to take it (not diagnosed with problem),
but I like the stimulate. Is there anything over the
counter that will give me the same effect as the
stimulate in Adderal? Caffine in a coffee does not do

There are no OTC substitutes for a stimulant like Adderal (amphetamine/dextroamphetamine). I would like to caution you against taking stimulants when you do not have a diagnosis of narcolepsy or ADD/ADHD. These medicines are HIGHLY addictive, which may or may not be aware of by now. An appropriate substitute may exist, but without a diagnosis, I'm afraid I cannot advise you.

I take adderal also and after about 3 hours I am extremely tired. Why is this?
