Common Questions and Answers about Adderall rash

adderall

I am 24 years old, and have been on adderall for 11 years, since the time I was diagnosed with ADD. As an adult how the drug affects me has changed greatly, and I have now formed both a mental and physical addiction to it. I have formed my life around taking this drug by pursuing a high pressure education, a college degree in a field not right for me at all, and an intensely demanding career. I am a naturally creative, laid back, and happy person, but the adderall truly changed all of that.
My son has been taking Adderall for about a month. He has developed a rash over the last few days. It is very itchy. Last night he actually developed hives. My Dr. says this is not a typical side effect of this medicine, but if I am reading the PDR right I think it is. Am I right? What should I do?
I usually take it to calm any anxiety or panic I have while on the Adderall. Then I take it when the Adderall is gone to just zone out or numb out. It's a real mess, I will admit. I am just very very scared. I know I can lead a clean life, but it's not going to be a cakewalk. There is a lot of past reckage. My mom has done all she can do. I am fully capable of working. I have a Bachelor's degree for crying out loud. It's getting the motivation and the ability to GET TO WORK that is the problem.

The acne and rash are not from an adderall allergy. Although, some peoples skin may get more oily when taking adderall (thus causing increased acne). She's obviously abusing adderall. People who abuse adderall make those of us who legitimately need it look bad. It also makes parents hesitant to put their kids on it (even though they could benefit greatly from it). I hate it when kids come on here and ask silly questions. It's disrespectful to the entire ADHD community.
For those who have kicked adderall use or abuse a good decussion about the period of time from stopping the adderall to a period in your life where you can funtion properly again with a smile.

the only thing i think it could possibly be is from a generic adderall.

It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can.

Its pretty itchy and I am starting to get itchy spots on my body (top of feet/ankles). I can not get into see my pdoc until atleast monday because it is the weekend.

This only happened once since it was a Friday and I do not do Adderall over the weekend. Everything went back to normal, until Monday I finished the Adderall I had and it happened again, I know the obvious answer is stop taking the Adderall, but can Adderall even have this side effect and cause this to happen? I do not have health insurance and going to a Doctor is more of a life or death situation so any information will be helpful!

he took them until he got a rash. He'd been pushing for Adderall. I wasn't against it, as long as it was coupled with a mood stabilizer. So he goes to his Psychiatrist & is prescribed Trileptal (I heard good things about that med) and Adderall. My son is 17 - turns 18 on May first. I trusted him this time & kept asking if he was taking his meds. Yes, was always the answer. The day before yesterday he told me he was only taking one Trileptal a day because it made him too sleepy.

Now I have noticed a rash on my face and legs, it looks kinda red and blotchy underneath my skin, but no bumbs and it doesn't itch, I also started taking adderall for adhd recently though so it may be from that.

I recently had a reaction to something that resulted in a rash specifically located on my neck and upper chest (it was itchy, inflamed, generally uncomfortable). I thought it was a reaction to drying my clothes with a dryer sheet for the first time (it has been at least 4 years). Here are all of the opinions I have received: -My general doctor thought it might be related to taking low-dose aspirin (prescribed by the neurologist) -My neurologist does not think it's related to the aspirin.

I just started taking adderall about three months ago. But I feel as if I go through moments of rage, I also experience severe headaches, my skin feels sensitive to the touch. I have had odd vaginal discharge, and severe pain in the lower abdomen, radiating towards my chest. This really worries me, and I don't really know who to go to about this...

Because of the 1 in a thousand risk of a rare rash Lamictal has to be started at 25 mg. and cannot be raised more than 25 mg. a week. That is a FDA regulation. The rare rash (Stephen's Johnson Syndrome) is nothing to be concerned about. As I remember when I started Lamictal if I had any signs of a rash I had to inform my doctor. However, because of this extremely rare side effect by FDA regulations it can only be raised at this rate.
Unfortunately, it worsened every winter and I would enter spring with a bonus disability (swelling, rash, cold intolerance). My first neurologist (due to insurance, I have had 8) advised me to take up tennis in 1999, as I am left handed, to slow the progression. Unfortunately, in fall 2006, I lost the ability to grip involuntarily and had to give up tennis. VA doctors say there is no objective evidence, therefore it doen't exist.
