Hey ladies. Today I was evaluated for ADD and I was put on Adderall. I am going to start taking it tomorrow, is there any side effects I should know about? I looked online and everything is very vegue. Weightloss or weight gain. Dizzyness, diahrea... what else?

My son just tried Adderall and for him he became very emotional on it, he also tried concerta with the same side effects. He only tried it for a week so we didn't have much experience with it. Hope that helps though.

My DD was on Adderall for quite awhile. She did really well on it, the only issue was that it wore off by about 4 in the afternoon; right about the time she needed to do her homework!! Her doc switched her to VyVanse and she has been on that ever since. He told us it was comparable to Adderall, but it lasted several hours longer. Good luck with it, let us know how it works for you!!

What dose are you on and how are you doing with it? I was prescribed adderall years ago but it made me too moody, even at small doses. My son, however, has been taking 20 mg for 10 years (he is 15 now) and it works great for him. I guess everyone is different.

MY DD is on Adderall and she does pretty good on it the only side effect she has from it is that she cant sleep at night but they put her on something to help with her sleeping. But as someone else said her's also wears off around 4 in the afternoon.... but other than that she does good on it. and she is on 10 mg
