Could bodily tingling be associated with adderall? - November 19th 2014, 02:48 AM


I got prescribed adderall, [Edited] short release, by my doctor about a month ago to help with my focus problems. For the past two weeks or so, I have been experiencing poor circulation at times and had some tingling in various areas of my body, sore muscles sometimes as well.

In all honesty, I have experimented with amphetamines before this. Not in a while, but I took molly cut with something once and vomited profusely for a few hours. I assume this was an overdose. There's no need to address the safety hazards on that front, I got it.

I'm just saying that I have taken plenty of speed before and never had any weird side effects, but now on [Edited] a day, I am having some weird things happen and it's been worrying me. The pattern would suggest that it could very well be associated with the adderall, and when I saw a doctor week before last and got blood work done, they told me everything seemed normal and if it persisted to see a neurologist. I googled it and found that a lot of people who take adderall complain of the same side effect, but there isn't a clear answer and my doctor doesn't think it's correlated. I was really worried that I had contracted guillian barr from a flu shot--it is a rare autoimmune disease that some very small percentage of people who get flu shots will start experiencing symptoms of a couple weeks later. I got prescribed the adderall when I got my flu shot, and the symptoms started a couple of weeks later. Week before last, the week after my symptoms had begun, I stopped taking adderall for three days and though I still experienced some tingling in my left hand/arm, it vanished for the most part until these past couple of days.

TL;DR Does anyone know anything about tingling in the body being a side effect of prescribed, taken as directed, adderall? Or is it likely something else?

A quick Google search indicated that people do suffer from this problem sometimes while taking Adderall. I would go back to your doctor and request a different kind of medication if these symptoms are interfering with your life on a daily basis. I would not simply stop taking the medicine without asking your doctor first. There are other medications to treat focus problems and sometimes you have to try a couple of them before you find the right fit for you.

Take care,
