    Adderall and Nighttime Bingeing

    I know I can't be the only one who binges at night when my Adderall wears off. I'm curious, does anyone know if this affects one's health in the long run, similar to the effects of nighttime eating disorder or something similar? I figure that loading on lots of calories at night before going to sleep can't be too healthy for the body to sleep on. I'd love to hear any experiences about how you deal with this.

    Also, does anyone think that long term Adderall usage could possibly lead to the development of eating disorders? When I was growing up on Adderall, I always would eat light during the day and eat heavier at night. I'm wondering if the ingrained pattern of eating heavy at night leads to development of binge eating behaviors. I know there's a lot of research that suggests stimulants help with binge eating, but I feel like there has to be a correlation between long term stimulant usage with binge eating behaviors if one grows up eating heavier at night, and bingeing when Adderall wears off.

    Re: Adderall and Nighttime Bingeing

    Nighttime bingeing isn't good for the body, because you don't work off the calories while sleeping... which can lead to weight gain->obbesity nd all the problems it entails. what I suggest you do is FORCE yourself to eat 3 square meaks a day. A side-effect of ALL ADD meds is loss of appetite... THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOUR AREN'T HUNGRY! Jus that you don't feel it. Think it the same as a sort of revese fasting (because people who fast eat good in the morning and work it off throughout the day.) If you cant force yourself to eat 3 meals a day, "grazing" is a better alternative.
