In brief: Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)

Not uncommon, more so when medicine peaking in blood.
Talk to your prescribing doctor about the symptom.

In brief: Interesting....

When stimulants wear off you can get such an effects.
First i would make sure that you are not having a decreased appetite as low glucose levels can do this. The other thing is to have a longer acting stimulant which will not have the rapid on-off which gives the headaches. That being said, even this may cause mild ha and so you may need a non-stimulant like strattera (atomoxetine).
