Question about Adderall
I was diagnosed a long time ago with ADHD so I've been on adderall a long time and a question occurred to me;
Does adderall have any significant effects on fat loss?
Before we start with the "don't abuse" and "dangerous" comments, fear not, I've no plans for using it for that purpose or upping my dose, just curious.

I was on adderall for 13 years. When I started working out I didnt know alot about stimulants so I took preworkouts while on adderall. Its not reccomended at all but I did have hella good workouts, sweat my ass off, and lost fat. Not eating alot prob helped to. I hadf to force myself to eat.
My advice. try to not use adderall, it'll mess you up in the long run.

Adderall is basically speed,
It has its legitimate uses, but it is speed nonetheless.
If I'm not mistaken, it's actually 3 different forms of amphetamine, and dextroanphetamine.
Although I have no personal experience with it,
I imagine at high doses or long term it is probably catabolic.

It is actually 4 different amphetamine salts. So yes, it is literally speed. I was diagnosed with Adult ADD, and was on adderall for 4 years. I got down to about ~140lbs because I never ate. Admittedly, I didn't work out during this time period, or really do anything healthy at all, but thankfully that period of my life is over. I am no longer on adderall or any other prescription medications and over the last year and a half through consistent exercise and good diet have been able to get back up to around 180. I control my ADD through meditation, prayer, and nootropics (cant wait for you!) Now I just need to work on cutting down my bf a few percentage points...WITHOUT using adderall. I will never go back to that stuff.

Congratulations on your success.Originally Posted by TruthWalker
It is my understanding regular adderall use can come with some serious sides in some individuals.
Glad to hear you have learned to control your ADD.

I think going to the gym has helped me control my add. After 13.5 yrs I went cold turkey and felt like crap for about a month. No energy sick constantly. Anyways going off was the best thing I have ever done, and It was well worth the pain. I feel like a million bucks and I'm able to eat and growOriginally Posted by TruthWalker
