Would taking concerta/adderall have a negative impact on testosterone levels?

Soon I will be going on either adderall or concerta to combat my ADD for when I go back to school in January. Im 18 and will hopefully get the good enough marks to go to the university of my choice. I am also very active, weight-training 5+ days a week, and I m wondering whether or not going on concerta/adderall will have a negative impact on my TESTOSTERONE levels and the ability for me to build muscle.

Thanks for using health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
Thats a myth and concerta or adderall doesn't have any significant effect on your testosterone levels. It will not impair your body building. Infact use of stimulants will improve your attention and will help you in planning your time for weight aerobics.
Hope I am able to help you,
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
