ADHD Home > Adderall and Acne
Acne does not appear to be a side effect of Adderall® (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine) or Adderall XR® (amphetamine-dextroamphetamine extended release). Before a medication is approved, it is studied in clinical trials and all side effects are reported and carefully documented. Side effects that occur in 1 percent or more of people are considered common; those that happen in less than 1 percent of people are considered rare.
In clinical studies, acne was not reported as either a common or rare side effect of Adderall.
