Bingeing after adderall come down - January 29th 2015, 05:19 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Ive found that i will not eat during the day while on my dose of adderall xr (30mg in morning 30mg around 11:30) and when i get home as i start to come down off my adderall i will binge and eat what every i can find. I feel really guilty about it the next day and sorta "challenge" my self how long i can go without eating. i insult myself and put my self down, reminding myself i dont need food. and its weird because as i write all of this i realize how different i am on adderall and how i sound like 2 different people. i dont like what im becoming......

Hey,

Instead of not eating throughout the day, I think you should try eating regularly. The fact you're not eating through the day is probably what is causing the trigger to binge, as your body is desperate for nutrients. Is there any reason why you're not eating, for example feeling sick/ side effects/ or is it more of a mental thing (the challenge, wanting to be thin?) It can help to identify your triggers. Not eating and then binging is very dangerous, you could rupture your stomach and cause all sorts of problems with your organs. I'm not trying to scare you, I'm just trying to let you know that what you're doing is harming you, and you don't deserve that

It's really important you talk to someone about this. Is there any alternatives to adderall you could potentially be prescribed? It sounds like this drug is causing you a lot of problems, and especially interfering with your eating pattern is dangerous. Even if you need to stay on the drug, there could be counselling or something that could be done to help with your mental state regarding eating. It's really important you seek help though, remember that. Be brave <3

Keep your head up, you'll get through this

I, too, take adderall and I find that at the end of the day, when my meds start wearing off, that I pretty much eat everything in sight. I eat normally, but I still find myself, hungry even after eating a big meal. One of the side effects of Adderall is appetite suppression.

Have you ever told your doctor about this? They are probably going to tell you that there really is not much that you can do except to just deal with it.

its not really that i dont wanna eat i just kind forget to eat, like the meds just make me not think about eating. im one the maximum dose they can give me, and this only because i am larger than normal, i experiance alot of the potential adderall side effects but just figured to suck it up and get through it,

Set an alarm, and stick to it. Make it regular everyday, and eat at those times until your body gets into a routine. Although you don't feel hungry, your body still needs food and so it's important you give it that. If you don't want to set an alarm, you could ask someone to remind you to eat at certain times
