I don't drink. I didn't know how to describe the smell better than flat out disgusting. Especially for a cute 23 year old healthy. I take med exactly as specified in treatment but maybe I'm crazy but I have to constantly wash blankets and change clothes. I shower twice daily. Any advice? Has this ever happened?! It's embarrassing :(
Are you taking Adderall XR or IR?
I have been on Adderall IR 20 mg. (3x/day) for several years and as far as I know, it has not altered the way my sweat smells.
However, you mentioned washing blankets & sheets, etcetera, are you sweating through the nights? The night sweat issue has happened to me in the last few years (not sure but seems to occur mainly when I take my last dose later in the day than usual); however, it is not a very smelly type of sweat at all for me...
Could it be something in your diet? Have you changed anything with your food/drink habits recently?
Something that may help you is switching to an RX or Clinical-Strength Anti-Perspirant (I am currently using Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid) such as Certain-DRI that keep you dry for over 24 hours. For your whole body (and/or night sweats, etc.) perhaps using a natural Himalayan Salt Rock Bar (you can find these on Amazon.com) or another Crystal-Rock like deodorant/ap might help.
