I started a medication a little over a month ago called Adderall XR 30 mg. I experienced extreme loss of appetite and loss a lot of weight. I also experienced change in mood and finally, just 5 days ago stopped taking it.
Durning that time I my period came every 20 days (this happened twice). Not my usual 28-30 days. It was also very light, not my usual heavy, heavy 5-6 day period. Just 3 day very light. Today I got my period again, after 16 days! It's very light as well.
Also, my hair went from being curly and wavy to completely straight.
The last time I called my doctor (februrary 2008) it was about the extreme weight loss. Having been a little heavy the last time I saw him (december 2007) he proceeded to tell me that the weight loss probably wasn't a bad thing. Maybe that's true but in that situation where I am eating less than 1000 calories a day, he had no right to say that. Everything is very baggy now, I can see my collar bone, I think that I'm not overexaggeratting when I say, I lost a lot of weight.
I'll do a summary:
-Straight hair (from curly)
- Non-existant appeitite
I know this could be stress from school or not eating, but all these changes in a little over a month? That doesn't make sense to me. I do plan on seeing a doctor when I return home for the summer (I am in college) but I wanted to see if anyone else has expierienced this, or can at least offer some advice.
