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. ...Read more

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! ...Read more

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.

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. ...Read more

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! ...Read more

My prescription Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) seems to be making me shaky and hot at times. What should I do?

Check with doc: You need to let your doctor know what is happening. If you've been on Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) for awhile and this is new, then it may not be related to the medication at all. The doctor will want to know when it is happening and probably will want to do some tests to see if there is a physical reason. You also might try a lower dose to see if you still get benefit but those symptoms reduce or go away. ...Read more

6 months on 30mg adderal small hives on face appeared 2 days ago spreading although very small should I b concerned? Have cold hands/feet

Unrelated: It would be unlikely to become allergic to Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) after having taken it regularly for 6 months. Try some antihistamine to see if it controls your hives. If the hives persist >8 weeks, consult an allergist. I am more concerned about your cold hands and feet (if newly developed) plus mouth ulcers. If these are persistent issues, see a rheumatologist as well. ...Read more

Why is Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) giveing me bad hot flashes when it wears off an I get a chokeing feeling in my thoat when it wears off?

Disorder or med?: A number of my patients complain of sweating while on adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). Virtually any medication that can stimulate norepinephrine can cause sweating. Also, it is not at all uncommon for Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) to have very much a calming effect. I suspect that it's also possible that some of your sweating and choking sensation could be due to your underlying anxiety that is perhaps secondary to your adhd and that starts to flareup as the medication leaves your system. A long-acting Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) may be in your best interest. ...Read more

Just started taking 150mg Wellbutrin, (bupropion) just woke up because my body was shaking, hot and sweaty, was dead asleep. Also on 25mg Zoloft 20mg Adderall?

Drug interactions: Wellbutrin, (bupropion) Adderall, Zoloft and other psychopharmacology drugs individually may cause the symptoms you are describing. When taken together there is a synergistic effect and can be very dangerous. (Serotonin syndrome, NMS, Malignant Catatonia, Malignant Hyperthermia, fever) etc. These syndromes are very rare but are possible. I'm not saying you have any of these but your meds need to be adjusted. ...Read more
