: how does the side effect usually last. what can i do about chronic headaches and weight loss
My name is David. Im 20 and started taking adderall 2 years ago for adhd w/o hypertension.
I first experienced a weightloss but over a few months, the body seems to rebound and settle back to an average weight. Obviously, you will have a dcreased appitite while taking adderall but you will get used to it. It is also used for obesity in some cases. Interms of your headaches, I never experienced them, but do know it is a possible side effect. I'd give it some time, depending on how long youve been taking them. Also talk to your doctor about dose decrease.
