General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

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.

@ krinh: This is why: Adderall dehydrates you so if you're not drinking at least your proper daily liter amount (which is based on weight, activity level, etc.) you'll suffer from a dry mouth as you probably know and this affects your normal saliva production.

You may not have any or may not know you do until they get wedged out over time. Tonsil s
