Taking this for Narcolepsy. This brand and the other oval type is giving me bad side effects. I don't know if its the fillers or what but its worse. The only one that never gave me side effects was the Sandos brand from Canada. Go figure right!!?
Plz don't give this drug to your children it has to be a better way to control the problem you're having. I know my mom put me on this drug for 6 years and now I suffer from the worst stage in gyno there is. And the thing that's so bad working out can't fix what I have so plz spare your kids life spare him/her the pain and bullying and most of all the jealousy to be Normal. Thank you
I'm a 20 year old female and I've been taking medication to manage my ADHD for the past 5 years. I started out on Concerta which turned me into a zombie, and then switched to Ritalin which was pretty much the same. I took adderall XR for about 3.5 years and noticed some jitteriness and loss of appetite when I would up my dosage or whenever I hadn't taken it for a couple of days. I recently switched to adderall IR to work more with my schedule and I hadn't really noticed much of a difference except for an odd 14lb weight gain and looking bloated. I stopped taking it for a few days, as I really only take it for school, and I dropped down 14lbs after being off of it for about 2 days. Then today I went back on it for school and I weighed myself and I'm already 8lbs up from yesterday. It's not really a big problem to me right now but I'm not sure how I would feel over time.
Adderall causes kidney stones - dehydration?
I do not eat or drink during day due to loss of appetite from adderall. Urine dark. After a few years on adderall I start getting severe groin pain a few times a week. I believe the pain to be kidney stones. No evidence in strainer. Internist not interested in pursuing. Comforting to see so many others listing symptom.
Adderall helps me with PMDD symptoms
I have PMDD and recently tried Adderall after an extremely bad day. I was experiencing anxiety, the beginning of a depressive state, forgetfulness and inability to conctrate, extreme fatigue and lack of motivated for abut 5 days. I just recently pulled myself out of a really bad post partum depression after having a nervous breakdown (I used sertaline) and did NOT want to go back there. Instead of starting the Sertaline again, which takes a few days to work, I decided to try one of my husband's adderalls to see if it would be a better option for me during this time of the month. It worked WONDERS for me. My mood is stable/normalized, the fatigue is gone, and mind is clear. I will definitely ask for an RX at my next psych visit! Because PMDD for me is like having to emotionally start over again and rebuild myself up every single month. It's terrible.
Since I have started taking Adderall I have had thee most awful leg cramps. They wake me up from a sound sleep. I often wondered if it was the medicine or dehydration. I believe it is both.
