A 49-year-old member asked:
does a person's tolerance to adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) ever change?

Tolerance changes: Through the life cycle, our physiology changes. Our ability to digest and absorb nutrients and drugs changes with aging. Our constitutional ability to adapt, while not well studied, is also known to change relative to our life style.
So does the tolerability of any drug change over time? Not necessarily, but most certainly it could.
