5957912 tn?1379936972 Well I have an appt. tomorrow instead of two weeks. I'm going to stop the Adderall. I noticed today that it made me feel like crap. I never took the pentermine today. I just started taking Adderall when the problems started. I threw it away today. I'm not trying to get depended on it anyway. I lived with the symptoms of ADD all my life. I can handle them. The only thing I really hated was I couldn't remember things.
Avatar n tn Hello, How are you ? I hope this finds you well. My name is Shelley and I am a mom and have a 19 year old son. I'll first tell you what he was on for the last year. Adderall XR 25 milligrams , dextrostat 10 milligrams for afternoon, and effexor (75)for mild depression, mind you. ( I think the adderall was causing the havoc made him tired all the time and rollercoaster mood swings. ) So, got recruited to college for golf but couldn't function for 18 holes.
Avatar m tn Yes Adderall has caused me a lot of problems...mainly with relationships due to the personality change I have when I'm on it. I thought it was the best thing in the world when I started using it but now I usually just do **** I regret. From my experience (four years taking it and swearing it off a million times only to come back to it), Adderall is a bad thing. Sometimes I'm productive on it but sometimes I just look for trouble or get obsessed with really dumb **** or I clean.
Avatar f tn some people have had heart problems after being on adderall and some have had strokes and there have also been case where some have died a sudden death. there is also seizures as a side effect from these drugs. don't know what your doctor was thinking when he gave you the adderall and I would stay away from those drugs. try getting something that deals with stress and anxiety.the other drugs can cause stress and anxiety also ,and make things worse your doctor knows that to.

Avatar f tn Are you taking Adderall XR or Adderall? Is it a capsule or a tablet?
Avatar n tn I've been on Adderall XR (Just started 25mg) for a few months now. I'm contemplating taking a EC stack for my workouts which consist of Ephedrine and Caffeine. I am wondering if Ephedrine is ok to take Adderall. I've heard mixed responses from this and would like to know the truth.
Avatar f tn I am male, 58 years old, with no history of cardiac problems. Is it possible that my previous Adderall use caused the atrial fibrillation that I am currently experiencing?
Avatar m tn So this post is going to be really long and I would really appreciate it if you read it and give me some feedback. I have been having heart problems now for more than a year and they are physically and mentally destroying me. I can't take it any longer.
Avatar m tn About a few years ago, I had a really bad reaction to caffeine--heart palpitations, rapid heartbeat, high blood pressure--over drinking a 20oz of Mountain Dew. I recently started taking Adderall for ADHD (was diagnosed since I was a child but could never swallow medication until early adulthood), and I thought it was really going to mess with my heart. Funny enough, I tolerate Adderall very well with a nominal increase in BP every so often.
Avatar f tn It takes place in the pericardial sac that contains the heart, and involves irritation of the heart and/or sac. Probably he is thinking of pericarditis primarily because of the pattern of radiating pain, especially the left shoulder. If it is pericarditis, and if you have had it all this time, it is unlikely to be infectious (viral or bacterial), but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be treated.
Avatar m tn Adderall or no Adderall is having a heart-rate of 95-98bpm dangerous...cause problems down the road? I'm still under 100 so I can't imagine it should be of too much concern but I did want to get some opinions. If I was over 100 I'd worry and possibly stop the medication. I've heard from a lot of people that their HR initially increased when first started Adderall but reverted back to normal after a few months (once their body got used to the medication).
5717054 tn?1372958545 im new so if im in wrong place sorry bear with me please. Many doctors have different ideas on what my problem is i gotten to the point i only use medicine that i think works because of side effects. iv been on Valium forever it stops my paranoia some of my anxiety and insomnia and vertigo too much benzo has paradoxical effect. I just started Adderall 20mds XR First day was bad i figured cause my anxiety.
Avatar n tn t, I would suggest you make an appointment for an evaluation at a free drug rehab center in your area -- I suspect that whatever may or may not be going on with your heart, you might also be experiencing problems from taking and/or withdrawing from some of the drugs you have been using.
Avatar n tn Then I was put on Adderall and from the start my heart went insane. Heart rate in the 160s for a two or three days just from one small dose and would have chest pain and shortness of breath. Everything I read online about my reaction was discussing people who were Adderall addicts and were taking massive amounts...
Avatar n tn I do appreciate any input, but I feel that if I am charged to speak with a physician, they should take the time to look at my questions and try to answer them if at all possible. I was curious about the effects of taking adderall had on motor neuron and glutamate function. I am currently in medical school and have been taking adderall for some time now and notice that when I am taking in caffeine along with adderall I experience muscle twitching within my arms, legs, and fingers.
Avatar n tn I have been having chest pains and palpatations for over 10 years. I used to go to the ER when this happened, but stopped as every EKG came back normal. My sister died at age 28 of a heart attack due to high choleterol and birth conrtol pills. About 4 years ago I had severe palpatations and went to a cardiolgist. He did a stress test and EKG and it was fine. Two years later I was having chest pains but the palpitations were not as bad. I just started taking Adderall at the time.
Avatar m tn I also used adderall illicitly to cram, staying up three nights in a row at times, and that is when my problems started. During one of these sessions, my heart started spasming and racing, giving me a good scare. I checked the doctor a few days later and they found my heart rate to be 102, slightly above normal, and gave me an EKG, which they found normal.
Avatar n tn My best recommendation is that (if at all possible) exercise in the morning prior to taking adderall. You must watch your heart rate and stop if you feel your heart beating abnormally fast or beating anything that deviates from the normal. If at all possible, see your medical professional and ask him or her about this condition and how you should go about your daily routine.
Avatar f tn Since Adderall is a stimulant drug, it can cause heart palpitations. It can also increase blood pressure and cause dizziness. If you are not eating enough, this could exacerbate dizziness and lightheadedness. Unfortunately, side effects to medications can appear at any time during the therapy. I would discuss these side effects with your doctor and if you decide that you cannot tolerate these effects, you may need to change your medication.
Avatar f tn First off, does anyone know what happened to me? Did I have a heart attack or overdose? FYI I was addicted to adderall the past 3 years and was actually clean for 4 months before I started recently taking again. Since then I have been having what I think are panic attacks. I had one the morning after I woke up from the experience, that whole day I was very short of breath and pretty much terrified I was about to go thru that again.
723488 tn?1278339300 We recently moved and are now seeing a new doctor for his medications. She says due to all his heart issues, he needed to be taken off the Adderall XR and should NEVER have been on it to begin with. So long story-short, she lowered his dose from 45mg a day to 15mg's in 2 weeks. I believe he is having withdrawl now. He is very angry, violent, screaming fits, detentions for not following directions in class, defient, lying etc.
Avatar f tn t suggested you Wellburtrin or an amphetamine like Adderall. They will both increase your HT and BP, Adderall to a greater extant and Wellbutrin to a lesser extant. There is currently no appetite suppressant that will work without affecting cardiovascular functions. http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar m tn , but when I do take them everything is good to go. While im on Adderall my heart rate is normal but the next day my heart rate is up some. Which makes me nervous so I dont take my Adderall that day so badically I cant get on the routine. So in short I take my Adderall one day, and heart rate stays normal, the next day my heart rate is up a little so it makes me too nervous to take it for a 2nd day in a row causing me to not be able to stay on a routine. So any thoughts on why this is?
Avatar f tn Adderall 10 mg = Vyvanse 30 mg, Adderall 20 mg = Vyvanse 50 mg, Adderall 30 mg = Vyvanse 70 mg. I always start lower than expected with a change to Vyvanse, as for about 10-15% that anticipated dose of Vyvanse proves too much. I don’t want folks on my watch to experience 10% problems." I would also check the comments in the above link and some of them might apply to you. the link is - http://www.corepsych.
Avatar n tn Many critics claim that Adderall and similar medications are widely over-prescribed to children who may exhibit behavioral problems that mimic, but are not caused by, ADHD. Another major concern about Adderall and similar medications are their high potential for abuse and addiction. On college campuses nationwide, Adderall and other ADHD medications are quickly becoming drugs of choice as popular study aids. It seems caffeine just does not cut it anymore for late night cram sessions.
