I was prescribed Adderall XR by my primary care doctor to treat my ADHDI. At first it helped a lot, although a couple weeks after I started taking it, I started noticing that I was having difficulty swallowing, it felt like my throat was somehow smaller than normal. At the same time I started to feel my breathing was different, at first it was just trouble catching my breath, but it snowballed into me feeling like my body just couldn't get enough air, tightness of the chest, tingling of fingers/toes. If anyone has any information please let me know.
Does anyone know about having trouble swallowing and difficulty breathing when on Adderall XR?

I have already been to the doctor who prescribed it multiple times, she told me to just relax and keep taking it, but I am afraid that something more extreme will come next. please let me know if anybody has suggestions. thanx
Shelly! I have been taking Adderall xr 20 mg for 2 days and I am having the same reaction! I feel like I am quietly suffocating and can't get enough air, then my chest hurts from struggling to breathe all day long! I am freaking out and cannot get a hold of my dr. I'm in a panic and think maybe I should go to the ER? Are you still currently taking Adderall? I think this is a really bad side effect!
