I just started taking Adderall two days ago. I'm on 10 mg, but was told I can take one more in the afternoon as needed. I took 15 mg this morning and this afternoon had some vaginal bleeding. It totally feels like a period( cramps, lower back pain etc) but I have been on birth control for years and I'm not due to have my period for a week and a half. Is the bleeding normal?
It has been a while since you have posted this question i sure do hope you have found the answer to this sooner than that. No it does not cause vaginal bleeding this is definantly something else.
I cant find anywhere that says this is a side effect, but it is for me! I have been on adderall for over a year during which I spotted but never used to. I thought it was my endometriosis. As soon as I stopped the medication I stopped spotting within a week. I just recently got back on adderall and the spotting started back up again. You're not alone in this.
Im the same boat I have PCOS and I believe adderall triggers vaginal bleeding. I already had my period this month.
Hi I've been taking Adderall for about 6 months and any time I have sex I bleed. A LOT. Even with lube and stimulation before and during. Its been happening every time we try now. I recently waited a week to see if it was just an injury. But its not. Most vaginal tears will heal within 2 or 3 days. Im also experiencing abdominal pain and this morning I am still spotting with some dark red blood. There has also been a change of smell in my discharge. Also im not on birth control but I am on effexxor and SSRI antidepressant. Im going to make an OB GYN appointment for this today. I will update you guys on how it goes.
I never had a problem with vaginal bleeding until my pcp added Adderall to my ADHD treatment. I started having spotting 5 days into taking Adderall on a daily basis after just having my period. I have elected to go off Adderall and let my body reset itself.
