Question: How long will my throat be swollen from adarall 1st time taking it and it was 15mg chest feels tight also legs feel weird too
Answered by Dr. Praveen 2 hours later
Brief Answer:
These are side effects of adderall

Detailed Answer:
Hi sir.Thanks for your query.

As per your description since the discomfort has been observed after ingestion of Adderall I would suspect adverse drug reaction to the medication.With hold adderall and consult your physician and discuss an alternative medication instead. Please donot pop them anymore without further advice from your physician.

Swelling of throat and chest discomfort will subside spontaneously over a few days to week once the medication is stopped
I would suggest salt water gargling 2-3times/day for 2-3 days and Tab.Ibuprofen 400mg after food 2-3 times per day if you have throat pain.

Hope this helps. Get well soon!

I have a knott in the Y of my rib cage, just below rib cage! It gives me discomfort when pressing on it or bending over. I am having indigestion everyday and it seems to be worse at night when laying down. When I say indigestion, I mean to a point that I think I may be having a heart attack!!! I get up and walk around trying to burp hopeing it will relieve the pain!!! Do you have any ideas of what this might be and what can I do to help resolve this? Thanks!!!

Hi, I am 19 weeks pregnant and I am having a feeling of trapped air bubbles in my chest. I have a gluten intolerance and I often experience indigestion/ heartburn and I have experienced a lot of acid reflux in the past mostly before I started my gluten free diet. Some times I feel as though a piece of food gets trapped and I need to quickly grab water to help wash it down. I figured that the indigestion and feeling of wanting to burp was normal during pregnancy but it feels worse right now, like I m going to vomit and it s causing my mouth to produce more saliva right now. Is this just normal indigestion?
