Hard to say...: ...With any certainty. Usually people do not gain when they start prozac; only tend to see that after they have been on it long term. Also be proactive as much as you possibly can: stay as active as possible, exercise as often as you can, watch what you eat, try not to pig-out when the Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) wears off, be prepared mentally in that way to counteract any possibility of overrating! good luck!
