30 mg Adderall = bad breath?
i take the orange ovals. 1 20mg and 1 30mg. i only recently switched to the 30 mg. used to only take 2 20's. after a while of taking the 30's [2-3 months] i have noticed a foul taste in ma mouth. only way i can explain it it when i had my tonsils removed and the healing process caused sever halitosis. i dont know if thats whats happening.... but i never had this bad of an issue with just the 2 20's.
