Adderall side effects hallucinations

Common Questions and Answers about Adderall side effects hallucinations


Avatar n tn And this is what INFO I found on line about adderall. All medicines may cause side effects, but many people have no, or minor, side effects. Check with your doctor if any of these most COMMON side effects persist or become bothersome when using Adderall: Constipation; diarrhea; difficulty sleeping; dizziness; dry mouth; headache; loss of appetite; nausea; nervousness; restlessness; stomach pain or upset; unpleasant taste; vomiting; weight loss.
Avatar m tn I do believe that you are correct when you say it could be the adderall it is known to have side effects so back to the doctor to ask him .
Avatar n tn I have been reading about the effects of Adderall. I have noticed in my son and step-son both that they have dispayed some signs of Autism. I was wondering if it was a possibility that it could be another long term adverse effect of the Adderall? They have become very nervous and fidgety, neither were before taking this medication. My step-son has the most severe sypmtoms.
Avatar n tn If you experience any strange side effects like hallucinations, delusions, irritability, depending on the severity you may need to contact your doctor. The maximum dosage prescribed is around 40 mg XR and it's set at that limit for a reason. Long-term use at excessively high doses can cause amphetamine induced psychosis. Please use discretion when taking stimulants, while tolerance does build rapidly it is possible to maintain a consistent amount of efficacy at a constant dose.
Avatar n tn If you know adderall is the problem tell the doctor, they will most likely tell you to not take it or reduce the dosage until they see you to adjust the dosage to what you need or to give you further instructions on how to take the medication so the side effects are reduced. Taking adderall on an empty stomach increases side effects of this type. Having caffiene like coffee is a huge mistake. This can definetly cause paranoia issues. I hope this helps anyone having these problems.
Avatar m tn When I say far too much, I mean it will give me X amount of side effects but I won't see a single hint of a positive effect. I'm very used to taking 15-40 mgs and recieving the side effects Im looking for: Alertness, productivity, chipper mood, talkative, sweating, shaking.. However, recently I've come accross new side affects: Lazyness (which I am usually), extreme weakness, paranoia, lack of motivation.. The two most serious issues happened the past 48 hours.
Avatar m tn I don't know how long it takes cholesterol to increase but 3 weeks prior to my bloodtest I had been eating fast food A LOT (more than I usually do). 6 times a week maybe. I was traveling at the time. Would this cause a spike in cholesterol in 3 weeks? I'm confident I'll be in a low range as I continueing avoiding fastfood and making healthier food choices. There is also nothing that says people with anxiety should avoid Adderall XR.
Avatar m tn wondering if a different anti depressant could counteract this? also i fear the longterm side effects, as ive seen someone close to me experience them and it was traumatic to say the least. psychosis, paranoia, hallucinations, violent anger, etc. i dont want this to happen to me. im smart enough to know the facts, but not strong enough to kick the pills. they keep me company though..
674555 tn?1272603976 Some people who have been on ADDERALL have had strokes and heart problems and there have also been people who have had sudden death. One of the other side effects is Seizures . My Son was on ADDERALL and then Concerta . They both have the chance of causing Seizures. Now my son has Seizure's and at first you couldn't always see them and as time went by he started to have different kind of Seizures.
Avatar n tn Are there any harmful long-term effects of DXM? For example, if you take one bottle of Robitussin every month. Also, is there a difference between the cough syrup and the gel caps?

Avatar n tn This evening I was scouring the internet for information on dexadrine, but I found very little mention of depression as a side effect, let alone the other problems. Are depression and the other strange effects a known side effect? Is it possible something else was going on? I know it is a bit late now as it ended over 20 years ago, but I still often wonder what happened to me in those confusing, hellish years.
Avatar f tn what would the side effects be if a person took 40, 30mg adderall xr. how long do the side effects last?
Avatar n tn I took 60mg of adderall xr about 24 hours ago it mostly all my effects went away but i still have mild hallucinations like seeing something in the corner of your eye and looking back to find nothing and fast light traveling fast.....
Avatar n tn As stated by sanosil who responded to your question. Rispadal is a very serious anti-pychotic medication. It is given to people who experience auditory hallucinations and visual hallucinations.I have a daughter who is on Rispadal for that purpose. She was later also given a provisional diagonis of ADHD, and put on adderall as well. When she was hospitalized for the 3rd time, the Dr.
Avatar f tn fast, pounding, or uneven heartbeats; feeling light-headed or fainting; increased blood pressure (severe headache, blurred vision, trouble concentrating, chest pain, numbness, seizure) or even tremor, restlessness, hallucinations, unusual behavior, or motor tics (muscle twitches). Amphetamines are believed to exert their effects by binding to the monoamine transporters and increasing extracellular levels of the biogenic amines dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin, not so with cortisol.
7297821 tn?1390607032 I do know about adderal and you should be able to stop that with only side effects being low energy. The xanex your on is a high dose and needs to be tapered. You didn't mention you wanted to stop that, but that will cause you problems at that dose down the road. Are you under a Dr.'s care that can help you step by step?
Avatar f tn Well it can have side effects of its own so it depends. If the psychosis is not from the anti-adhd meds but if is from a psychotic disorder and you've tried all known antipsychotics Clozaril is still an option and although it has severe side effects of its own for some people it helps. What I take is still experimental and I am the first person to recover with it by itself. But in the study it was given with a standard antipsychotic and won't interact with any except Clozaril.
Avatar n tn He was on ritalin for five years which helped the ADHD but had side effects. The worst side effects were lack of appetite which caused him to very thin. He also had sensory integration therapy which I highly recommend. We also gave neurofeedback a try which helps to regulate the brain waves. His handwriting improved right away and was able to focus better. His school work became much easier for him and he has become an avid reader.
Avatar n tn However this medication worked extremely well for me until that time. There are some side effects which should't affect your daughter (i.e., low sex drive, etc.) but if she could take something else I think I would try a different med. My neice was also prescribed Paxil and she suffered from the same side effects. Her doctor changed her to something else (not sure what) but she is doing great on it. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn A few years, a little bit of partying, smoking and a little bit of Hollywood modeling later, I started Adderall therapy this spring when I decided to clean my life up. Almost as soon as I began adderal, I developed unfamiliar and SUDDEN DAILY heart irregularities that show up on my home BP monitor but conveniently werent caught at ER. NOTE however in 2002 an isolated similar collapse inscident produced an "abnormal" EKG but we didnt have $ to purdue.
621290 tn?1226723861 It is an amphetamine for kids or adults. I find NO addictive qualities to it ... in fact I hate the side effects (no appetite, dryness in the mouth and anus, bad breath, excessive horniness, "buzzed" eye balls). But I have heard of others getting really hooked.
Avatar f tn To all My son was on drugs for ADD and ADHD ,Adderall and then Concerta until we found out he was having Seizures ,witch can be a side effect from the drugs they give out for ADD and ADHD. Along with other very bad side effects. These drugs are like speed.I blame my self for my son having his Seizures and some of them you wouldn't know he was having them unless he was hooked up to the EEG .
Avatar n tn I have had some of the same issues with my son, he is 12, can't sleep, wants us to be in the room with him or sleep with us, says hes scared...I wonder if it is a side effect of the meds...some kids do have increased anxiety issues with the adhd meds, my son is on focalin after trying adderall, concerta..
7522862 tn?1396949021 Illegal and prescription drugs have side effects. You took high doses and mixed things without a care. You didn't think anything would happen? Maybe it will improve if you stop forever.
Avatar n tn The pair has joined a group of doctors who are pushing for US authorities to slap tougher warnings of their possible side effects on prescription medicines such as the anti-depressants and drugs used to treat attention deficit disorder. Both Alley and Preston, who is married to John Travolta, are members of the Church of Scientology that strongly opposes the use of psychiatric drugs.
Avatar m tn However, i noticed that all medication have severe side effects (nausea, diarrhea, suicidal thoughts..) My smaller brother has ADHD, and was prescribed strattera. It had the same side effects mentioned, and It turned his life to real hell. So i don't think i can bare this. Fortunately for me, OCD in my life has its ups and downs. It was close to disappear, until i had this last sexual encounter... when OCD boosted again big time.. I'm sure it's very psychological.
Avatar f tn It's great for BP II, and it's approved I believe as an add-on med for BP I stabilization. Topomax does get used for bipolar, but it causes major cognitive side effects in a lot of people, to the point of getting nicknamed "Dopamax". It does tend to make people lose weight, but you seem to have that part under control.
Avatar f tn It's a drug approved by the FDA for the treatment of excessive daytime sleepiness associated with narcolepsy and obstructive sleep apnea, and it has been widely acclaimed for having few side effects. In fact, I believe they're looking into Provigil as potentially offering cognitive enhancement to patients on the drug.
