How much weight can you lose off of adderall?

the question pretty much says it.... i'm not taking it for weight loss purposes by the way... just wondering if the stories i'm hearing are true and if any one out there lost weight on it, and if so.. how much and how long did it take?

I lost 20 pounds on Adderall in a year eating fast food and whatever else I wanted to stuff my face with. But now I fear I will gain it all back once I get off it. If you want to loose weight with Adderall, I think your best bet is to take it for about a month or two all the while adapting healthy eating and exercise habits. It's a good way to loose the initial weight, just don't get addicted...

How much weight can you lose on Adderall while eating healthily?

I've just been prescribed Adderall XR for my ADHD. I've already been on a sort of quest to get healthier, so naturally I was ecstatic when I realized that one of the main symptoms of adderall is weight loss. I know some people lose like 20 lbs in a month because they only eat like an almond a day while on it, but I've never really been a light eater lol. Also, I decided I will exercise, but only doing low impact stuff like yoga, and pilates, since heart complications can arise when amphetamines and exertion mix.

In a nutshell, roughly how much weight can I expect to lose in a month while on adderall and doing low impact workouts 3 days a week?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :D

Weight loss is based on calories consumed and burned. Adderall will do nothing towards this except curb your appetite.

How many calories are in the meals you will forget to eat?

It's math thing.

Be careful.

XR Adderall XR 2 Lose Weight?

I been using adderall XR as a way to lose weight for the past five weeks a couple days out of the week. I lost a total of 35 lbs.

Before I get the lecture trust me I know adderall is not intended for that use at all, it’s for people with ADHD, blah blah blah I know trust me. I did my research.

The only reason why I even went this far was, because I was introduced to it by a friend of mine who lost about 50 lbs in two months and I was stupid enough to try it. I was gaining too much weight over the winter I went from 280 to 245 (As you can see I’m a little bigger than other people) I guess I got desperate, and went about it the wrong way.

I’m tired of the lack of sleep, hardly eating EVER and basically tired of taking the drug. I’ve lost enough weight to where I know want to just get on an exercise plan and eat healthy. Lose the weight slowly but healthy.

Has anyone every used adderall to lose weight and if so how much weight did you lose in what time period? How often were you taking it?

I know the withdrawal symptoms are going to suck, at least that’s what I heard, I don’t know how true that is but I’m willing to find out, because I’m stopping doing this stupid drug.

I had a reaction to Adderall and had to stop taking it but I lost a lot of weight like you did. You might talk to a doctor about how to taper off of the med. Good luck.

I'm losing too much weight on adderall, but i REALLY need it?

how can i make myself hungry?

It's a very common problem.

My son had loss of appetite while on Dexamphetamine.

A Dietitian put him on a weight gain plan where he had to eat small amounts of food at set times even if he wasn't hungry.
Eventually his appetite returned.
Now he never stops eating yet he is as skinny as a worm.

Check a BMI calculator to set your weight goal.

Your BMI should be between 19 and 25.

You should find exercise that fits into your daily routine, like walking to school, bicycling to the grocery store, and hiking through a local park. Try to perform these moderate exercise activities for at least an hour every day. Eat more fruits and vegetables, since these are both filling and filled with the nutrients that your body needs.

Let me give you a summary of my meals in a typical day:

Breakfast: A high-fiber cup of oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. A pint of coffee or green tea.

Alternatively, a high-protein scrambled egg with an Anaheim or Pasadilla pepper, a handful of mushrooms, and half-cup of cheese, with a topping of Greek or Italian spices. Two bananas.

Lunch: Snacking and a meal at work is one orange and two apples; ten-grain, flax-meal, psyllium home-made crackers or rice chips with an ounce or two of spreadable soft feta; a quarter-cup of cinnamon-sugar almonds; a pint of coffee; a quart of water.

Alternatively, a soup of clam chowder with a half-cup of added mixed seafood such as clams and octopus or split pea soup; dried figs and apricots to satisfy hunger between meals; a quart of water.

Dinner: A half-head of lettuce with thousand island or blue cheese dressing. Two bananas with a glass of milk. Two cups of herbal tea.

Alternatively, a high-fiber, multi-grain and flax meal pasta with red sauce, adding mushrooms, peppers, bok choi, and a few black olives. Another meal is stir-fry vegetables in a ginger terriyaki or vegetable spring rolls with duck sauce. A cup of brown rice or wild rice, not a true rice, as a high-fiber side dish is very filling with green tea or herbal tea.

My daily exercise routine is 16 miles of biking, unless the weather is nasty. If the weather is bad, I run 4 miles a day with a backpack. On my days off work, I usually hike about 5 miles in winter due to snow on my paths and 10 miles in summer. Try to do at least an hour of moderate exercise per day, which can be a commute to pick-up groceries, get to work or school, or a hike in a park or neighborhood.

The best colon cleaners: strawberries, bananas, oatmeal, apples, psyllium husk powder, and flax meal. If these do not work, try a cheap laxative like generic calcium polycarbophil or sennosides. If you still want to pay more for roughly the same effects, try "Acai Berry Cleanse" or Cellular Research Formula "Colon Clear" and "Total Body Purifier." Buy a juicer and pulp apples and other fruits. Make vegetarian stir fry and serve over rice. All of these are safe and effective purifiers.

Adderall effects on weight?

Can anyone tell me how much they lost on adderall?
I have just been told by my doctor that I need to take it for my add and was informed that weightloss comes with it. This excites me but im wondering how much weight loss?

The weight loss is due to a side effect, which is a reduction of appetite. It's not like they keep track of how much people lose on Adderall, they just know that it's something to look out for. If you start to lose too much weight, it's something you'll want to tell the doctor.
