Not sure: It appears you're on Adderall and vyvanse, (lisdexamfetamine) either of which could affect weight. However, this is not consistent for everyone on these meds. Using other drugs, not eating meals, & other medical problems can affect your weight too. For best answer to your question please work with your primary care physician to find and resolve these issues. Be well.
