Ditto on Jane's "go back." Too much Adderall I believe is behind many of the problems reported on this board.
Caveats on "feeling wonderful" and Adderall for weight loss: "Feeling wonderful" dissipates in a day or three. Frankly you are buzzed from the dextroamphetamine. Do not try to maintain the good feel. It has nothing to do with Adderall's focus enabling properties. If anything the buzz works against you.
Some report loss of appetite from Adderall. Has anyone experienced sustained loss of appetite past a few weeks to a month without continually escalating doseage? I think not. I wish I were still young like you but at 57 I swear zero appetite suppression from Adderall. It seems that I only experience the bad side effects.
As far as interaction with diabetes and HBP, have both checked regularly and keep doctors synchronized if more than one doc involved.
