About Adderall XR

Adderall is a central nervous system stimulant (amphetamine). Adderall is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children 6 years of age and older and in adults.

Precautions for Adderall XR

Amphetamines have a high potential for abuse. Taking amphetamines for long periods of time may lead to drug addiction. Particular attention should be paid to the possibility of people obtaining amphetamines for non-therapeutic use or distribution to others.

Misuse of amphetamine may cause sudden death and serious cardiovascular adverse events.

Side Effects of Adderall XR

  • Sudden deaths: See FDA Alert.
  • Abuse potential: See Warning.
  • Worsening mental illness (psychosis): Adderall may make symptoms of existing mental illness worse.
  • Possible decreased growth and weight loss: Adderall may decrease growth and cause weight loss. Children who take it for a long time should have their growth and body weight measured regularly.
  • Increased tics: Adderall may worsen tics and Tourette’s disorder.
  • Pregnancy: Tell your healthcare professional if you are or may be pregnant because your baby may be premature or have a low birth weight. Also, your baby may show withdrawal symptoms, such as agitation and drowsiness.
  • Breast feeding: Do not breast feed while taking Adderall because it can pass into your breast milk.
  • Other side effects include loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping, dry mouth, headaches, and mood changes.
  • Tell your healthcare professional about any medical conditions you have in addition to those already mentioned in this information sheet.

You should not take Adderall if you have:

  • A heart defect
  • Other heart problems, including high blood pressure, and heart or blood vessel disease

  • Glaucoma
  • A history of drug abuse

Never take Adderall if you are taking a drug used to treat depression, called a Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitor (MAOI), or if you have stopped taking an MAOI in the last 14 days. Taking Adderall close in time to an MAOI can result in serious, sometimes fatal, reactions, including:

  • High body temperature
  • Coma
  • Seizures (convulsions)

MAOI drugs include Nardil (phenelzine sulfate), Parnate (tranylcypromine sulfate), Marplan (isocarboxid), and other brands.

Interactions with Adderall XR

Adderall may interact with other medicines. These interactions can cause serious side effects. Tell your healthcare professional about all medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements you take, especially:

  • Those used to treat depression, known as tricyclic antidepressants and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI)
  • Antacids
  • Those used to treat urinary problems
  • Diuretics

prozac, adderal and strattera

These 3 drugs have been life savers for me. Before I started taking strattera, I had serious itching which made me scratch my face. However that only happened once. Since strattera (which is great for me) I have had severe attacks of itching. I thought it was the adderal so I went off of that. Then I found by accident that prozac was a contributing factor. So I lowered that as well. I would have to go without adderall for as much as 3 months, which left me sleeping much of the day. Without the prozac my obsessive compulsive disorder became much worse and more depression. Now I have found out that strattera and prozac can cause severe itching. I am restricted as to what anti depressants I can take because I have mild epilesy. any imput will be helpful:confused:


Concern for son

My son is 15 and has been taking Adderall XR for about two years.
Recently he has become violent physically and verbally. The later in the day it gets the worse he tends to be. His grades in school are better
but he likes to bully his sister and mom around. But let a male come to
discuss his behavior and he runs and hides somewhere until they are gone.
I am concerned about him, but his doctor doesn't feel that there is a
problem.
