I have numbness on my lower back and abdomen and my skin is crawling. I'm on adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) could that be causing these sensations?

Not usually. Numbness and skin crawling sensations are not likely to be caused by Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and aren't listed as a side effect. But that doesn't mean this side effect is impossible. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) can increase anxiety in some patients which could result in abnormal skin sensations. More often than not, "skin crawling" sensation is anxiety/stress related. The same for the numbness in abdomen and back. Call your Dr.

I have taken Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) for over 1yr. I was recently increased to 30mg/2x day and have started obsessively picking at my skin. Can Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) cause this?

Yes. Meds like Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) need to be very carefully titrated to get just the right dose for each individual's unique needs & metabolism. Sometimes it's a matter of just changing the dose (often only slightly); other times, it's a matter of changing medicines, or combining 2 or more meds to get the best effects without side effects of significance. Picking compulsively is almost surely due to this dose. Read more...
