I Have A Question About Dyslexia Can Adderall Cur It
Hi, I find it really hard to concentrate at school. I have dyslexia and not being able to concentrate is hard. I wanted information on adderall.
Is 90 mg of Adderall a fatal amount for a 215 lbs adult male with a medium-high tolerance? (Not taking this amount, was just asked this question)
Depends on person.: According to FDA "Individual patient response to amphetamines varies widely. While toxic symptoms occasionally occur as an idiosyncrasy at doses as low as 2 mg, they are rare with doses of less than 15 mg; 30 mg can produce severe reactions, yet doses of 400 to 500 mg are not necessarily fatal." Safest thing to do is follow your doctor's prescription for you, and don't experiment. ...Read more
I noticed on Adderall that I sweat a strange, chemical and almost fruit smelling odor. A search of the internet provided many people with the same question but no definitive answer?
Drug effect: Almost all adult males have increased perspiration with stimulants, particularly amphetamines. This is typical sympathomemetic dose related effect. How sweat itself smells is a result of individual chemistry & diet. Sweet smelling perspiration suggests an abundance of Amino Acids in diet. Dry mouth accompanies sweating, so drinking excessive amounts of diet drinks increases phenylalanine loads. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Impossible to say: They are two different medications acting by different mechanisms of action such that no one has ever been able to come up with the equivalency table. One must try various doses of these agents to find the correct dose for any given individual. Best wishes. ...Read more
Follow up question. After i take my Adderall my BP is low 110/55, pulse rate peak of adderall, 60-68 per minute. Is this due to my running every day?
I take adderall which will show up amphetamines but my question is how I failed for methamphetamine because I don't take anything that contains it. ?
Cross reactivity: The screening tests on urine drug testing often shows false positives due to cross reactivity. This means your medicine reacted as if it were another substance because of a chemical reaction. When the sample is tested by gas chromatography and mass spectrometry, the results will show the Adderall and not methamphetamine. Best wishes! ...Read more
Probably: I would consult with you physician and potentially a cardiologist. The cardiologist would probably do a ekg and/or echocardiogram to decide if you have any structural or heart rhythm problems. If you don't, you probably can use Adderall under a doctor's guidance. But i would ask the doctor about these issues before using. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
