Short release didnt. I have taken adderall for a few years and basically cannot function without it. I recently switched my primary dr. and he gave me adderall xr, I have been experiencing very bad pain on the roof of my mouth which makes it impossible to eat and swallow. He insists that there is no difference in the contents of the two forms of the drug and there isnt a possiblity that the xr is causing this. Could he be wrong?
Is there a possibiltiy that adderallxr could cause pain on the roof of my mouth?

I too experienced this problem after eating and I found that hydrating myself and drinking water while eating slowly helped ease the pain.
This is definitely an interesting side effect.
I have been taking adderal since about 2002 prescribed and sometime over used . I find having difficulty eating and swallowing after over use... that along w dry mouth,,, possibly not many add patience notice this but u swallow exesivley while on them, causing what's called the "soft palet" of the roof of your mouth. Quick demo if interested, run your finger down the center of the roof of mouth. Ull notice it's tough and almost bone feeling, keep going further in oral cavity and like a pools deep end drops off, so will your hard pallet and then what's beyond that is like half inch until you hit your dangling ball . notice when next using Adds how much u over work that soft pallet of your mout and that's the part that pushed or helps push food down, well from being over worked, from talking to much, just not hydrating and dry mouth will make it sore for sometimes up to 2 days...
I've found nothing that's cured this problem w me yet but I know about how the pallets of the oral mouth work cuz I make oral appliances, dentures , crowns... keep me posted and if what I'm saying sound familiar plz comment any ideas to fix this painfull side affect . Who know we come up w something that limits or cures send side affect who knows we could b millionaires :)
YES! I had that very inconvenient and painful side effect! No one else had ever heard of that but its like the top of my mouth would actually SWELL to some extent and the pain was really bad with any kind of pressure! Eating and drinking was almost as painful as when I had laryngitis! And yes, it was ONLY the XR version that caused this issue. There is a possibility of course that doctors don't know all the side effects, and I'm sure there is something in the extended release NOT in the short acting. That's the only explanation. I ended up having to stop the use of XR, due to this side effect!
