5 Best Ways to Reduce Stimulant Side Effects

To best help our readers take their stimulants safely, we’ve compiled and rated five ways to help reduce the side effects of stimulant therapy based on Cost, Ease of Implementation, and Impact on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest.

Stasis Supplements

Reduces the unwanted downsides of stimulants using clinically studied ingredients. Customers report better focus, less crash and more restorative sleep, even while taking stimulants.

At $79, Stasis provides the value of $560 clinically studied supplements.

Easy to get started: 2 pills with your stimulants in the morning and 2 at night. 

Effects are validated by a handful of great early reviews.


Yoga and Meditation

Trains the brain to release less cortisol, the stress hormone, to reduce irritability and moodiness. 

Can now be free thanks to online videos and podcasts. 

May not come easily to people with ADHD as it takes commitment and perseverance.

It may take a few months to recognize lower levels of chronic stress and worry.


HIIT Exercise

Can be very beneficial in helping release pent up emotions, stress, and frustration. 

Browse online to find the HIIT routines that work best for you. 

HIIT may not be feasible for those who have breathing, joint, or heart issues.

HIIT has been shown to be more effective than other forms of cardio in helping people on stimulants feel calmer, be more emotionally stable, and get a more restful sleep.


Proper Nutrition/ Hydration

Taking your medicine with food can help lower nausea and queasiness and hydrating will help with dry-mouth, fatigue, and tenseness.

Meal prepping healthy meals can cost just $25 a week and a reusable water bottle can be purchased for just $10.

Meal prepping and carrying a water bottle can encourage healthy eating and hydration habits by simplifying your meal routine.

Consistent sips of water and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels will help keep your brain and body healthy while on stimulants.

Sleep Medication

Sleep medications like Ambien are considered a last resort for those on stimulants with sleep difficulties and generally aren’t recommended by doctors.

Ambien is not very affordable – the average retail price can be more than $737.83 for a month’s supply.

Doctors are hesitant to prescribe Ambien to stimulant users, as adding a sleep-inducing drug at night sets up a brutal cycle of stimulation and sedation. 

Although it will provide instant gratification, Ambien is only intended for short-term use and may create more daily disturbances than those brought about by lack of sleep.
