What You Should Know About Adderall Side Effects
Posted on Nov 12, 2015
Adderall is a drug that is commonly prescribed by doctors for the treatment of ADHD. ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a psychiatric disorder that affects children and adults. The disorder manifests as a persistent inability to pay attention along with extreme hyperactivity. While there is no cure for ADHD, doctors often prescribe drugs such as Ritalin and Adderall to manage the symptoms of ADHD.

While Adderall has become a popular ADHD medication, there are side effects that you should know about before you or your child takes it. Recent research has shown that some side effects can actually be quite harmful. While not everyone will suffer from all the side effects, some are more common than others.

Addiction

Because Adderall is considered an amphetamine, its prolonged use can possibly lead to addiction. Prescription drug abuse can be deadly. Both children and adults should not use Adderall for extended periods of time. They should be carefully monitored by their doctor to ensure that the proper dosage is being taken. Those who have a history of drug abuse should not take this ADHD medication. Always take the lowest possible dosage that produces results.

Cardiovascular Problems

The misuse of Adderall can lead to cardiovascular problems and may even cause sudden death. People with underlying heart abnormalities should not take Adderall. If you are unsure about your cardiac health have your doctor test you before starting to take Adderall. You should not take Adderall if you have heart defects, high blood pressureoveractive thyroid, or Glaucoma. In a small number of cases, cardiac problems have occurred in those without previous conditions.

Gastrointestinal Problems

Some people develop a stomach ache after taking Adderall. If you experience this problem let your doctor know so he or she can change the dosage or recommend when to take it. More serious side effects are loss of appetite and weight loss. These can lead to stunted growth in children. Sometimes the symptoms will lessen with time but if they persist, consult with your doctor.

Mental Illness

Some people taking Adderall have reported worsening symptoms of mental illness such as psychosis. Do not take Adderall if you are currently taking MAOI medications (Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitor). These are marketed under many names and are used to treat depression. Possible interactions can occur including high body temperature, coma and seizures.

Other Side Effects

Less serious side effects include difficulty in sleepingheadaches, mood changes, dry mouth and loss of appetite. Additionally, alert your doctor to any other medications or supplements you are taking including antacids, herbal remedies, diuretics, pain relief medication and vitamins.

Discuss with your doctor about the available ADHD treatment options and their side effects. He or she should carry out a thorough review of your medical history and emotional stability before prescribing any ADHD medication. Be sure to watch children carefully when they are taking Adderall to check for any possible side effects.
