Side EffectsAs with any medicine, there are possible side effects with Adderall XR. However, not everyone who takes it will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it well. When side effects do occur, they are often minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
The most common side effects of Adderall XR include:
- Loss of appetite
- Dry mouth
- Difficulty sleeping (insomnia)
- Abdominal pain (or stomach pain)
- Weight loss (see Adderall and Weight Loss).
Adderall XR can cause high blood pressure. Usually, this increase in blood pressure is temporary and does not cause any problems. Adderall XR can also increase the chance of seizures and can make certain heart conditions and mental problems worse.
