One of the side effects to adderall is insomnia my son was on it for 5 years and has always needed a sleeping pill to help him get and stay asleep. You may need to look into this. But yes what you are describing was very normal for my son.

yesterday ws first day on the capsule. was given capsule at 6:45 am. went to sleep at 9:10. Why so late. He had football practice 6-8. anyway, about 12:40 am he woke me up and wanted to go to school. told him it was to early. he ask what time do we wake up. I told him 6:45. he stayed up until about 3:30 am. Woke up and took his capsule and went to school. is this normal? am i making sense.
