If taken with risperdal, can Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) lead to weight fluctuations?

YES. Risperdal can be associated with weight gain and other metabolic changes. Stimulants, such as Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) can be associated with appetite suppression and weight loss. If the fluctuations are extreme (more than 10% of body weight), a medical workup should be done.

I'm on adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) ciprilex, and risperidone. Is smoking marijuana a bad idea? What negative effects will it have? Are they permanent? Honest answers.

Bad idea. Marijuana is harmful to the brain. It can interfere with your medication. I have seen it cause treatment resistant psychosis in several patients. Chronic use is also bad for your lungs and can increase cancer risk. It also causes a syndrome characterized by a lack of motivation. Just because states are legalizing it, doesn't mean it's safe. It's a very bad idea. Read more...

Eat calorie-rich. Eat when you are apt to be hungry, and pack in the calories during those periods. Start with an big breakfast with balance of protein and other food groups; if needed, don't take the medication till after breakfast.
