Amphetamines and Gastroparesis...

This is quite an unsavory topic i know, but I am very curious to know if anyone has / knows someone who has taken amphetamines whilst being diagnosed with gastroperesis.

I am intrigued to see if it aggravates the condition or if it helps. OR alternatively whether it makes no change to the condition...?

I am under the understanding that amphets speed up the metabolism, so does that mean they speed the gut up??

I'm not planning on using them but am just curious to know if anyone has had any experiences....

Re: Amphetamines and Gastroparesis...

I've been on Adderall for ADHD, both before developing stomach issues and after. (I've had issues for 6 years, just diagnosed with GP.)

I found it irritated the gastritis and made me nauseous, much like coffee did. It can also dilate the LES and contribute to reflux symptoms.

Basically, see what coffee does to you, or caffeine pills. Caffeine and Adderall have pretty much the same effect on the body.
