I have had every side effect from Adderall XR!

by Blake
(Florida)

I'm a 23 year old male student from Florida. I didn't start taking Adderall XR until 2005 which was my junior year in high school. I had really bad side effects from it but it also made me very focused when doing school work as well as other activities.


My side effects were dry mouth (cotton mouth), weight loss (I lost 20-25 lbs because food looked disgusting and I had little appetite), and one of the strange effects was my testes and penis would shrink significantly and I would have trouble urinating (Has anyone else had this problem?).

I also suffered from constipation and it seemed I like I couldn't get enough water in my body. I also had a lack of sex drive. I've been off the medication for 3-4 years now but recently had trouble focusing and have considered getting back on the medication. Any suggestions?
