I'm newly diagnosed and they started me on Adderall. It helps but I'm worried about the weight loss side effect. I have a normal BMI and do not want to lose so much weight that it becomes unhealthy. Have any of you had drastic weight loss on Adderall and had to stop it?
You'll find what works best for you.
Also very important and the docs never tell you this: Amphetamines (but not methylphenidate) are neurotoxic and can damage your body, particularly your mitochondria. The damage is due to the oxidative stress that results from increased phosphorylation of long chain fatty acids in the production of ATP. Phosphorylation produces as a byproduct oxygen species, i.e. free radicals. When taking amphetamines it is very important to take an antioxidant as well, such as co-q-10 or acetyl L-carnitine.
Of the amphetamines, Desoxyn (generic: methamphetamine) is by far the most toxic.
Good luck! :)
P.s I always wanted to try a salt cave, msinly for my sinuses. Glad you had a good time!
One suggestion is to reduce your intake of Adderall to just the days you need it. Skipping it on the days your off work. See if your appetite returns. That will give you an indication of its truly the Adderall or something else.
