Adderall raises your metabolism but reduces your appitite so it makes sense to gain weight when you stop taking them (if you gained weight while ON them then thats strange). as for the fetigue, its the same thing, the pill made you more active so when you go off then you just do not have access to that extra energy so you have to force your self to do things so you get the natrual energy stabilized.
i have no idea how long the withdrawal symptoms will last (i would assume they would be over soon but i just dont know).
I'm 23 and id been on adderall for 17 years and finally decided to see what its like off it. Its been 5 months and I still feel like I'm detoxing. Do you also have muscle and joint aches since you've been off it?
I am having severe muscle aches and joint pain. Any suggestions what to elevate? I have not been on it long however I am taking occasional high doses. I have taken as much as 120 mg at one time. I have a very high tolerance.
