Question: I have breast implant surgery on Thursday and I took a 20mg Adderall today (Monday) will this complicate my surgery? I don't plan on taking anymore. it wasn't on the list of medications I received from the doctor but I saw it on the list online so I'm just curious if I should be worried?

Brief Answer:
No need to get worried!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I have reviewed this medication fully. It presents no additional risk during the procedure or the recovery process. This is a potential drug of abuse and if not prescribed by your doctors, please keep away from it. There is no need getting worried about the possible impact on your planned surgery this Thursday!

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and feel free to ask for more information and clarification if need be. I wish you a safe procedure and a quick recovery.

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?

7 year old on Adderall having incontinence problems. No UA infection per specimens sent but 2 episodes of bloody urine. Took antibiotics with no accidents. Could this be related to Adderall? Was suggested could also be from low blood sugar since Adderall has been suppressing her appetite. Thoughts?

i'm 46 yrs old, 5'7", 170#. i am suffering what i think is a side effect of medication: i feel an urgent need to urinate (as in trotting to the bathroom, struggling to hold my bladder). but once i reach the toilet, it drips out. (my bladder is full, just nothing comes out).
i believe it is a side effect of adderall and/or cymbalta.
what can i do to alleviate this?

My Daughter's doctor thought he heard a heart murmur today on a follow up appointment for her taking adderall. She has had ADD her whole life and is dyslexic. She is 21 and in college and thought the adderall would help her concentrate.The doctor didn't detect one when he prescribed Adderall to her. She has only been taking it for 2 months. We have an appt for a ultra sound tomorrow at a hospital. Can she have developed a heart murmur from Adderall?
