Problems With Adderall

Although most people do not experience problems with Adderall® (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine), side effects are still possible. Some of the most common Adderall side effects include:
 
  • Loss of appetite (anorexia)
  • Dry mouth
  • Difficulty sleeping (insomnia)
  • Headaches
  • Abdominal pain (or stomach pain)
  • Weight loss.
     
Adderall can also cause a temporary slowing of growth in children. This slowing of growth is usually minimal (less than an inch and less than two pounds). In time, children usually catch up to within normal limits. Also, if you have seizures, heart problems, or mental problems, Adderall can aggravate the symptoms of these conditions.
 
When side effects do occur, in most cases they are minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by your or your healthcare provider. However, there are also several side effects of Adderall that are more serious and require immediate medical care. Notify your healthcare provider right away if you experience symptoms such as:
 
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Confusion
  • Chest tightness
  • Chest pain or heart palpitations
  • Shortness of breath
  • Depression
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures.
