Is it normal for my face and ears to get red/hot after my Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) starts wearing off?

Is it normal for my face and ears to get red/hot after my Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) starts wearing off?

Maybe not related: The symptoms of one's face and ears getting hot and reddened after Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) wears off are not reported side effects associated with amphetamine-type medications. It is unlikely Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is the source of the symptoms. A primary care doctor can review one's other medications, over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, supplements, alcohol, illegal drugs, etc..., to see if there may be some interaction.

Not as effective: It could be a change in manufacturer or the same dose if not doing the job. I would talk to your prescriber about seeing if a new approach is needed. In addition, consider your sleep as without enough of it everything else can fall out of place!

It can be difficult: Depending on many things - location, socio-economics, sophistication, scarcity of services, etc - it can be hard to find adequate attention. Who put you on the Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)? Perhaps they can refer you to a therapist who can coach you on better assertiveness and how to communicate w/ Dr's effectively. Or find one yourself - it's a good support. You can find understanding.

Please respond I took about an ounce of robotussin and a 20 g of adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) 8 hours ago my head kind of hurts should I see doctor??

Please respond I took about an ounce of robotussin and a 20 g of adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) 8 hours ago my head kind of hurts should I see doctor??

Please clarify: I'm sorry your head hurts. An ounce of Robitussin (guaifenesin) (with codeine or dextromethorphan?) equals 6 teaspoons. Why did you take this amount? Do you mean 20 milligrams of Adderall ie, one pill? Was it prescribed or did you take it to experiment? Both Robitussin (guaifenesin) and a 20 mg Adderall pill should be soon out of your system. If headache doesn't fade or worsens, see your doctor. Best wishes.

My 7 yr old son was just put on Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR 15mg. Very dilated pupils and tingly feeling in head. Is this maybe a reaction from too high of a dose?

My 7 yr old son was just put on Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR 15mg. Very dilated pupils and tingly feeling in head. Is this maybe a reaction from too high of a dose?

First dose?: I'm not so concerned about the pupils, but if this is how first day to days of medicine I would keep dosing and see how he does over the next day or two. How is he acting at home? What reports do his teachers have? How is he eating? It's hard to say much about the dose without knowing your child's weight, but this dose for his age could be ok. Followup with your doc who prescribed soon!

SEE YOUR DOCTOR: Either you are having some kind or allergic reaction to the medicine or you are developing a low immune system making you vulnerable for a skin staph infection either way you need to see your doctor for proper evaluation and treatment good luck

Don't know: Can’t diagnose with available information. Examination, history & possibly other testing would be needed to make an accurate diagnosis. Treatment would be dictated by diagnosis.

Wen: You gave no age or evidence of trauma, but remember that skin gets bumps no matter where it is located. A visit to his family physician should help delineate possiblities.

Adderall Comedown?: Some people have a comedown off of adderall when either the drug effect has worn off or is wearing off. This can cause some to feel irritable, moody & wired (plus potentially quite tired). Please let your prescribing medical provider know about these possible side effects.

Bumps irritation redness and slight discoloration on penis head, help?

Balanitis: Balanitis is due to tiny amounts of urine under the foreskin. Wash it. Blot under the skin after passing urine. Castellani solution and Miconazole (clotrimazole) cream will help. Circumcision cures it and is easy to do.

Possibilities: There is a possibility that it can be a sexualy transmitted disease but another possibility is pearly papules (photos can be seen using search engine - i.e. google images). These are benign not contagious and common so possibly nothing to worry about. If there is any question as to the cause see your MD.

? fever: These symptoms may be due to a viral upper respiratory tract infection with mild fever and head congestion. You should feel better taking TYLENOL (acetaminophen) and drinking sufficient fluids. See your Physician if symptoms worsen or persist longer than a few days.

Anxiety: Is state of tension, apprehension, worry, uneasiness or fear. It may be related to anticipated danger or arise for no apparent reason. While mild episodes of anxiety are common and do not usually require treatment, more severe forms can be chronic and debilitating. Some times no treatment is the best treatment. See your PCP for evaluation and advice.
