so, as most of you probably don’t know, i have ADD and i’ve recently begun taking Adderall for it. i don’t know if anyone is familiar with the Adderall side effects, but basically you lose your hunger due to the chemical stimulants in the formula, and apparently the pill also speeds up metabolism. therefore: my question to you all beautiful people is:
have any of you used Adderall and experienced weight loss? and if so, do the results stick if you go off of the meds? I’ve obviously Googled about this combination and found a variety of concrete examples, but i wanted to know if any of you know or have any personal stories about ADD meds and weight loss. because honestly, food is anything but appealing when i take the pills.
thanks guys! please tell me what you think/know about this!
I’ve been taking adderall for the past couple days and I can say that my appetite has been non-existent. Food is not appealing in the least. I took it before and it did the same thing. I couldn’t eat that night, or even really the next day. The results really don’t stick though. You eventually get your appetite back, and you pretty much go back to normal. Or at least that’s how it’s been for me. I would guess it would only keep weight off if you kept your appetite down, which may happen if you take it for a few days and let your stomach shrink down though. But once again, you always run the risk of building your appetite back up.
Since you have a prescription, I think you will keep weight off. Like I said, shrinking stomach and all.
