Why am I gagging?
| Sophie37
I've been taking Concerta for 8 years. I was on Adderall for about 6 years before they switched me. But, recently in the past 2-3 weeks any time I try to eat lunch I will gag the whole time and sometimes throw my food up in my mouth. Why? By the time I'm off work and have dinner I'm totally fine to eat.

remembered just now that when I was 20 years old, I was given Acutane and my hands became twice their size and I couldn't move my stiffened fingers.Also, when 12, while making Shrimp Scampi de-veining the shrimp-- same kind of reaction, I have continued and continue to eat it without consequence ,,, 8 years ago I was suddenly allergic to peanuts ... I accidentally ate peanuts 5 years ago and no reaction since then. Recently I was put on Watson Actavis immediate release adderall, and my left foot swelled, with pain, redness, stiffness etcetera-- I got rid of it So, I have to go through three weeks until I can get another medications but I don't know if I can get a different generic or have NJ Family care, Blue Cross Blue Shield, to cover. Has anyone had reaction to actavis generic adderall? I sent complaint to FDA nad the manufacturer without a response.

Hate to bring up an old thread but I had a serious question. I wanted to try it rectally so bad and had no syringe. So I came up with dissolve the tablet in a little water and poured that bitch right on the cotton of one of my gf tampons then shoved that bitch WAY up there. I literally just did it so I'm waiting too see if it works. Anyone ever heard orctried this method and had success?

Activated charcoal and adderall; it triples or doubles the effect of your adderall. It is a alkalizer (takes away acidity), one of the strongest ones. And acids take away from the affect of adderall.

I have been taking Adderral for probably a little over a year now along with xanax when needed. What does flexeril do while taking adderall both in the morning together before work?

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?
| Bureaucrat
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.
September 19, 2015
its possible since dehydration is one big issue that I have come across with taking this drug. Just make sure to consume a lot of water you will know you are consuming enough because it will lighten your urine, and the pain should subside because of the ureic acid levels are not so high. I don't think that you have kidney stones. hope this helps
