Can Discontinuation Of Adderall Cause Muscle Aches?
Yes, it does cause muscle aching.
Adderall is a combination of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine which are stimulating drugs. They increase the amount of dopamine and norepinephrine in the synapses, and thus they stimulate your psychological and physical activity.
Adderall discontinuation causes irritability, aches and pains (especially in the muscles), and depressed mood.
The mechanism is related to the constant stimuli that adderall has been giving to the muscle tissue, and now that the muscle lacks this stimuli, it becomes sore and hurts. It can be compared to the ache you feel after going to gym, but this is more intense and constant. It is physiological and it will last for a period of time.
