i have been snorting adderall for a bit now and I have noticed some nasty side effects...? I cannot lay on my left side when I go to bed as the pain in my ear is so bad that it feels as if my brain is bleeding on the left side and coming out of my ear. Am I correct in thinking that this is due to the excessive abuse of adderall? I have been experiencing brain pain mainly on the left side of my head along with in and around my ear. What kinds of damage are done when one "snorts" adderall, to the Brain, ear, and throat? Also, I have had to miscarriages this year whilst taking adderall; am I correct in assuming my miscarriages were due to my abuse? I am pretty sure that I am the cause for my painful losses and I have/am taking the steps to never to adderall again.

I take adderall . I had my last period 35 days ago. My boyfriend have unprotected sex for the past 32 days can a home pregnancy test show up negative if you take adderall?

doctor1 MD

Hi.

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

I dont think adderall can make any changes in pregnancy test but it may have effect on pregnancy. Home pregnancy kits measure urine hcg if it is showing negative then wait for another week and then recheck or consult an obstetrician.

My husband and I are both prescribed Adderall for ADHD. We both had to go in for a drug screen and mine was fine but my husband's came back positive for amphetamines and methamphetamines. The one giving the test said this was fairly common. I was just wondering how common it is and is this an indicator that Adderall isn't quite as safe as we were lead to believe? Both of our young children are also prescribed Adderall (ages 6 and 8). Also, my husband takes medication for paranoid schizophrenia and doesn't need anything going against his medication for that.

doctor1 MD

Hi,

Adderall contains salts of dextroamphetamine and amphetamine. So it is not unusual that your husband's sample tested positive for amphetamines. Adderall is approved for use in both children and adults with ADHD but is also prone to be abused because of its stimulant nature. However, you need...

I am taking the generic for Adderall 10mg (amphetamine salt combo 10mg) twice a day & am having issues with heartburn. I feel as if I have a golf ball sliding up & down everytime I swallow. I feel like I can't inhale deeply because my throat is so tight, almost as if someone were pushing on that little nook in my throat (the same place where an emergency breathing tube would be inserted). How can I get rid of this without having to stop the adderall?

doctor1 MD

hi,
There are lot safer medicine than adderal for heart burn. I think you should taper it off. Better you try tab Pan DSR for heart burn, which is safe and effective medicine.
Also avoid smoking and alcohol if any. Avoid spicy, fatty food. Don't lie down immediately after food instead have some...

I just was perscribed to adderall for add about a month ago and since then I have had my blood pressure taken twice, not by the doctor who perscibed me. Both times it has been high and I have never had problems before. Does it take your body time to adjust to adderall or should I be contacting my doctor?

doctor1 MD

hello,
Adderall increases bp, if your readings are persistently high then you need to decrease the dose of Adderall and if doesn't respond then need to be started on Bp medicine.
But are you sure, you didn't have high bp prior to starting Adderall. You should visit the doctor.
You should have a...

Hi, I m bipolar, and we are switching me from 3 mg risperidone, to 10 mg olanzapine. I have been on risperidone for over 14 years, but was on zyprexa for a few years before that, but I don t remember the dosing I was taking then. I am concerned that I will be dosed to heavily, and will have a sleep hangover , as I took my first dose last night, and feel pretty lethargic right now. I do work full time, and can t afford to feel lethargic. I am on 20 mg of Adderall right now as well, and took that, however, I still feel kind of lethargic. Would you recommend maybe 7.5 mg of olanzapine to cut back on the sleep hangover effect?

I m a 35 year old female who has had issues with acid reflux for most of my life and it runs in my family. I ve done a good job of eliminating things from my diet that irritate it and it hasn t been much of an issue the last few years. Recently, my doctor put me on Adderall 10mg IR after the Strattera I used to take wasn t working out anymore. While I am getting really good results with things like focus, impulse control and task completion, I am having digestive issues from it as well. I went a couple of days without the Adderall to make sure that was triggering the symptoms and I think it is. I m burping almost all the time while it is in my system, have some acid reflux and have a lot of gas in my system that is causing me to feel bloated and achy in my midsection. Is there anything I can take OTC for this and space it apart a few hours from when I take the Adderall? It s doing so much good for me that I don t want to abandon it unless side effects are more severe. Any advice would be very helpful. Thanks. -M
