Adderall Side Effects
Adderall Side Effects to ReportThere are a number of side effects with Adderall that you should report to your healthcare provider, including, but not limited to:
- Suicidal thoughts
- Chest tightness
- Chest pain or heart palpitations
- Signs of Raynaud's disease, such as cold and numb fingers and toes
- Shortness of breath
- Depression (see Adderall for Depression)
- Abnormally long-lasting or frequent painful erections of the penis in males of any age
- More outgoing or aggressive behavior than normal
- Strange behavior
- Hallucinations (seeing, hearing, or feeling things that are not really there)
- Agitation or restlessness
- Unexplained rash
- Uncontrolled movements of the head, neck, mouth, arms, or legs (known as tics).
Rare Adderall Side EffectsThere are other Adderall side effects that can occur. These rare side effects were reported in very few people taking Adderall. Given how rarely they occur, it is difficult to tell whether these side effects are caused by the medication or something else.
Some of these rare side effects of Adderall (based on studies of Adderall XR) include, but are not limited to:
- Fatigue or tiredness
- Impotence (also known as erectile dysfunction, or ED)
- Decreased sex drive (see Adderall Sexual Side Effects).
If you have seizures, heart problems, or mental problems, Adderall can aggravate the symptoms of these conditions.
