I first took strattera and experienced discharge which I went to get tested for any STD and they were negative...So I stopped Strattera and the the discharge was gone...Now more than a year later I started taking Adderall and I experience the same problem of clear, painless white discharge upon defication and occationally after urinating...Adderall being an amphetamine can have effects on the prostate could this be it I could not come across any literature to try to understand what is doing on, maybe i am not looking in the right place...I am pretty sure it is not an STD...I have actually stopped the adderall for a few days and the discharge is still there but less frequant? Anyone have any ideas? I am 24 y/o male and am not sexually active...No pain upon urination and no lower back pain or anything of the sort....And to my knowledge prostate is not enlarged.....

  • I was on Strattera for about 2 months. Aside from making my whole body itch when I sweat... it also made me ejaculate during defecation without erection or orgasm. i tried to deal with it and it started to go away but they raised my dosage and it got much worse for about 3 days before i quit taking it all together. then about 2 weeks later i started on adderal 20mg XR took that for less than a week and then switched to one 20mg Regular Adderall in the AM. after two weeks i started to have slight irritation and discharge again during defecation. no ejaculation but slight discharge. i also have a frequent urge to urinate and sometimes its during normal activity or shortly after going to the bathroom. 2 weeks later my urethra from under my scrotum up to the end of the penis started to hurt and there was a cloudy/thin discharge once or twice. when i am done with defecation and during the "wipe" i can feel an awkward sensation in my penis as if it may ejaculate. does this sound like it could be a prostate issue? what should i do? i have been taking antibiotics incase it is a UTI and i have been drinking 100 cranberry juice (disgusting). there is no pain during urination (actually stops the pain) the pain is just there as if i had injured my penis. the pain after 2 days of antibiotics is almost gone. i have also reduced my adderall dosage to 10mg in the AM. i am going to give it a couple of more days and then go to the doctori am in my twenties and married, sexually active but only with wife. she and i are negative for any STDs

  • I have never taken Adderall before and i had some that i discovered 30mg XR. Being that i am open to experimenting with substances that are mind altering or cause euphoria I have been taking some of this medicine. I also discovered that during urination, it was slower than it should be, and as weird as it sounds, felt like there might be 2 streams, a weaker, stream excreting something, but not urine i would presume. Masturbation was possible despite the genitalia being slightly shrunken from the normal soft size, probably due to an article i read about Atterall and blood flow to that area. Size seemed almost normal if not just lightly smaller but not really noticeable. At a point before ejaculation there was a liquid white fluid that was excreted. It looked diluted and not as thick as the following of the orgasm and that ejaculation. As to the cause of the slow stream, size, and fluid, I am not a doctor and i do not really know. This is my personal story, I have just been reading things on the internet, thats how i found this. It seems though that i have a simular story to the other two so sounds like it might be a known reaction. Yesterday i estimate taking 6 - 30mg XR pills.. only 1 so far today. The feeling isnt really something that i find enjoyable. I would much rather have an opium based drug.

  • To the guy who took 6 30mg Adderall XR in one day. You WILL kill yourself for a buzz you don't even like if you keep doing that. I promise you. Get some help for your drug problem as it's not normal for a person to risk their life just to SEE if they might get a good buzz from a HUGE dose of some drug that could easily cause you to go into heart failure or cause a dangerous arrhythmia at that high toxic dose.You have a serious drug problem.

  • I have the same symptom (painless discharge of clear liquid (and also white opaque stuff)) while defecating, if I haven't ejaculated the usual way for a while. I'm not on any of those drugs mentioned, and also presume no STD or prostate cause. Does anyone know the name for this sort of symptom so we can find more about it? the only thing I found was a .pdf about a patient who was on some other drug for a while who had the same symptoms too (google 'overpooling').I wouldn't call it a problem - I just assumed it was some sort of natural pressure release mechanism (fulfilling the same purpose as wet dreams) - but it is rather odd.

  • I too have the discharge after a BM especially if I have not ejaculated in several days. I am on 40-50mg daily of amphetimine salts (generic adderall) for the past 1.5 years. Also I have had two uriniary tract infections (UTIs) in the last 12 months which is listed as a possible side effect along with "sexual changes"...which could mean many things. I am currently seeing a urologist about all this, but now that I have read all this from everyone I believe I will look to switch off this drug.

  • Strattera seems to have caused the same side affects as you all are describing, i have sex regularly tho and have never experenced any ejac while defecating, just opaque white stuff in a thin fluid just prior to ejaculation. nothing crazy looking just different than what i a used to seeing.... anyone know if this is some sign of infection or just chemical changes? You know.... i might just stop taking this **** id rather have healthy ejeculate than an attention span

  • I have been on adderrall since I was in 6th grade (now 21 years old). I have also always had a big penis (9.5" hard, 5" soft), but sometimes it gets really small. I finally realized that is must be the adderrall. I mean my penis shrinks down to about 1" or half an inch. This is highly embarrassing because I have always been known for this weird fact about myself and it also effects my erections (5" is as big as I can get). I would prefer to keep my big member, rather than concentrate but I just want to know if this is permanent or not? I feel it lasts a while even after the medication has worn off. And is there anyway to overcome this besides getting off the medication?

  • I should start out by saying that I am not prescribed adderall, but instead take it for recreation like the Stoner before me. If you're already filled with anger at my ignorance and want to close the window, continue reading first, you might just agree with what I have to say. Anyways, I am more than aware of the damage that I could potentially be doing my body as I type. Don't make the mistake of assuming that I am uneducated in the matters of body chemistry, I'm by far the most knowledgeable person I know on the subject of pharmacology. I don't mean to sound like a pompous ***k or anything, I just get frustrated when I have to read the same basic replies to posts of this nature, over and over again. I GET IT, really I do. I am more than aware that my behavior puts me at a much higher risk for infection, as well as coronary problems. The reason that I took the time to post such a lengthy reply, Is because I want anyone out there with the same discharge issue, prostate enlargement, and/or urination difficulties to know that as long as you are NOT ABUSING adderall (The way I do, and the way the mental reject a few posts up, who is somehow PROUD about his addictions, does) then you are at a very very low risk of permanent damage. Largely this depends of course on your dosage. If you are taking more than 60 mg of adderall a day, and are experiencing side effects like those discussed above, than you should seriously consider switching to a different medication, or at least reducingyour dosage for about 7 months. Hopefully by then the side effects will have cleared up (In that ammount of time they always do by the way, but if not please for your own sake seek medical attention). If there's anyone out there who is reading this because they are interested in taking adderall recreationally, you don't have to take what I say seriously I suppose, that's your perogative, but still I plead you to at the very least give a little thought to what I'm about to say. Adderall, ritalin, concerta, or for that matter any kind of amphetamine (ESPECIALLY Meth), will ultimately be a waste of your time, a waste of your money, and more importantly a waste of your health. You will probably not experience serious complications the first few times you take it, I'll grant anyone that, but eventually, after a while, You WILL be in the same boat as myself, and the other problematic-******s on this forum. That's the least of your worries anyways though. Ultimately you should be concerned about the addiction potential that always goes along with a psychoactive chemical. Your friends might not have gotten hooked on adderall, giving you the idea that it's not as addictive as the medical world claims. I can see why you would think that, after all, a good portion of the negatives that we all heard from our parents about drugs is false information and myth. However I am not your parent, I'm not a cop or a doctor, and I have no reason to lie about something as trivial to my own existence as this. The fact is this: Even though no one you know is even remotely hooked on this stuff, YOU might be. Odds are if you're already taking the time out of your day to actually research the drugs you plan on using, then you're intelligent enough to take my advice and just stay away from adderall and other amphetamine. However, the odds are equally good that if you're online, reading about drugs, trying to educate yourself about them, then you have an addictive personality, and after a few weeks of infrequent adderall binges, (And you will binge man, trust me, you'll need more adderall to stay awake the next day), you'll become twitchy, have troubling ******g, and ejaculating for that matter. You'll most likely find your tolerance shooting up within a matter of months, and by the time you really notice it, you'll be popping 300mg of amphetamine salt and feeling the same buzz you did that first time, when you took 20-80mg. By the time you hit that point though, the damage is usually already underway, and quitting could still save your life, but it's too late to shake the dependency easily. Quitting at this point will become incredibly difficult. It can be done, but expect to be in a foul mood for months, like a 500lb woman in a perpetual state of PMS, and no one likes that. Plus you'll start gaining weight at a rapid rate. This is because the first sign of amphetamine withdrawl is an appetite I can only describe as more potent than smoking a whole ounce of white widow by yourself, while left all alone in a candy factory. In summation, If you're already taking this stuff to get high, you probably could use a little help getting over the first 3 months of quitting: Go to rehab if you have to, but therapy would probably do the trick. On the other hand if it's not too late for you, and you haven't yet begun to take adderall, then just DON'T! It's not worth it at all, and besides, I don't care what those friends of yours may say, it really isn't very fun at all, and you're not going to get much homework done after about your 6th time taking it, that motivation gained by dropping a little dextro-amphetamine goes away really quickly once your body gets used to the chemical. If your mind is set though, and you're going to try amphetamine out to see what the big deal is, remember this mega-huge post of mine, and monitor yourself for the standard speed mood swings, remember not to snap off at friends and family when you're tapped out, after all they don't know what you're going through and it's not their fault that you feel so weird. Also I suppose I should add that it is a really really bad idea to mix an upper with a downer, such as vicodin, oxy's, xanax, valium, and of course heroin or opium. It's tempting as ***l to do when you can't fall asleep on your own, but the likelyhood of heart attack or other coronary problems to occur goes way the ***l up, and you'll most likely have a panic attack anyways, for some reason that happens a lot when mixing adderall with pain killers or what not. Just do your future self a solid favor, and don't take uppers for enjoyment. The fun only lasts for a while, but the psychological and physical damage can be permanent. Based on the way I write you may be thinking "What the **** does he know about drug problems?" If you are thinking that, then I can only tell you that I know everything about drug problems as I watched my own selfish abuse destroy the potential I had, and watched most of my good friends eventually wind up like me, that is those that didn't already die. Interestingly enough I know 2 people that amphetamine use has taken from me, both the same way: their tolerance eventually went way up, so they took more and more adhd medication to get their buzz, ultimately this super tolerance made them feel like badasses, but in the end they both took just a bit too much, and suffered heart attacks. They didn't even have to OD, their heart just couldn't take the amphetamine combined with the lack of sleep and horrible excuse for a diet. Anyways, I think I'm qualified enough on this subject to be listened too and heeded. Don't abuse adderall, and if you already are get some help. If you don't your best case scenario is to wind up like me, and trust me it's not much of an option; Drugging is a full time business, there's never any rest for the weary.Good luck with your side effects everyone, I hope things become a little easier for you in the bathroom, if you know what I mean.

  • When I take Adderall the urine comes out too slow. It doesn’t feel natural. It feels like there is delay at the beginning. One time I masturbated many times maybe 4 or 5 in a row for several hours. Later the urine came out ultra slow. It must have took me like three minutes to urinate and it sprayed crazily in 2 directions like a wild hose. This scared me. The penis seems normal now. The other time my urine a week later turned pink orange. This scared the living crap out of me. I think it was the beets I ate and dehydration? I think I should drink water with that Adderall. It gets rid of my thirst.

  • The result of ejaculate discharge as a side effect of various psychotropic medications is based more on signals from the brain than it is on effects on the prostate gland itself. As many of these medications target an area of the brain responsible for the inhibition and excitation of certain functions of the body, changes in the chemistry of these areas can send false signals causing certain side effects, like ejaculate discharge, both during defication, and at times, during urination or even during prolonged bouts of sitting. Each of these events can cause minor stimulation to the prostate, and if brain chemistry is out of balance, a responsive excitatory signal may be sent in error causing the discharge. Information concerning this event can be found at the following link. This study covers only certain medications; however, the basic premise can translate across numerous others. http://neuro.psychiatryonline.org/cgi/content/full/16/4/544 Not to worry, this is generally not associated with a glandular problem; however, it is wise to have your prostate checked regularly anyway.

    8 Surprising Facts About Cholesterol

    Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?

  • I take 30mg of Adderall XR in the morning, then when i get back from school, i take a 20mg Adderall (not XR, just regular). Then I will occasionally take one more later depending on what i need to do homework or job wise. I am not sexually active, and masterbate maybe once once or twice a week. I am experiancing the same exact effects as listed above; Ejaculation while deficating (and sometimes at random) without orgasm, and slow or difficult urination, and it has been happening to me for roughly 4 months. I have been taking the above-noted dosage consistantly for roughly one and a half years. I did some of my own experiments and this is what i found... 1) After twenty one days of not taking the Adderall at all, the ejaculation went from occuring every time i deficated and one time randomly during the day, to not happening at all. During this time period, i kept my diet consistant and my lifestyle and other habits all the same. (The only thing i changed about my daily life was that i stopped taking teh Adderall)2) Another thing i noticed, was that my penis size has increased significantly. At the beginning of the experiment i was about 5" erect, 1" soft, after the 21 days i was about 6-6.5" erect, and 2" soft. This is possibly due to the fact that Adderall is known for affecting blood flow to that area. 3) Since i concluded my experiment, i have stopped taking the medicine, and discovered that my attention span has mellowed itself out naturally. As opposed to before, where if i was off the Adderall for more than a day i almost couldnt hold a conversation with someone for more than 5 minutes. This may also have been a mental dependency to the drug, and the effect of me kicking the habit. So dont quote me on that one...Well, I hope that helps... And please excuse all the typos, and abuse of english grammar, but im a terrible speller, mildly dyslexic, and rather tired. Good luck to the rest of you.

  • to the guy who started this forum a few years ago. if you ever visit back here, is there any way we can get an update as to what happened? i am a 24 y/o male with an almost identical story, and i am not sure what to do.Yeah, I would like to hear an update as well. I actually found this forum after looking up my symptoms on Google and found nothing but this site. They should put these symptoms on the side effects list on these drugs. I am an adult in my 30's that has had ADHD with no medication my whole life. Work has gotten more intense and all that and I decided to see a Dr regarding my inability to stay focused on one project for more than a minute. I was prescribed 2 30mg Adderall (salt tablets) a day. The first night I noticed the pre-ejaculation. Normally after urinating or sometimes just out of nowhere... never while defecating though. Its been doing it all day since I started (a week ago). Slow urination and the feeling that I need to ejaculate are the only symptoms.. otherwise I love this drug and how its helped. I dont plan on staying on it full time.. just to get through heavy work loads. I also notice that when I masturbate or have sex my semen is twice what it normally seemed to be?! Its a noticeable difference and even my wife noticed how much its been. Now, like the polar opposite of what others said my genitals seem to be bigger in the flaccid state and get much stronger erections (like when I was a teenager)?!?! After reading this forum I decided to measure to see the difference. I have always had an above average penis and especially flaccid noticed a decent increase. Flaccid I am normally around 5.5''' and now I am just over 6'', hard I'm normally at 8 7/8'' and now I am at 9'' on the dot. All these symptoms occurred and only since I started Adderall (hence why I searched these symptoms). I wonder if the extra blood flow symptom has happened to anyone else. Thanks for the honestly guys and allowing me to realize I am OK!

I am married, and am sure that I do not have any STD. I, too, experience a painless white discharge upon defication, and sometimes during urination. The discharge has no smell, and is really does not bother me, however I did like my life a lot better when I did not have this.I am female, so it could not be caused by issues with the prostate.I don't know what it is, but it has bothered me for some time now. I am happy to see that someone else has this.

  • Same deal for me as for almost everyone else who posted. Although, the discharge seems to be much more intermittent for me. It has only happened a few times that I noticed - and even then no pain, no smell. I also only take about 10mg twice a day, so predictably my 'symptoms' are much more mild. I also have the weaker urine stream and that weird hesitation to get the stream going. It's good to know that it's probably not something more serious. The amphetamine salts really do help me focus and I only take the stuff when I'm working and whatnot. But it would just be nice if these side-effects were listed somewhere. I'm sure that would alleviate a lot of the paranoia that many of us face, since researching any symptoms on the internet always alludes to CANCER.

After I peed all this white stuff came out (semen I think/hope). I tested negative for stds and haven't had sex since so ya I think its the adderall. Also I've had like one orgasm in the last two months.

  • Hello All..I am a female, early 30s, and have not been sexually active since I began this medication about 1 month ago. Immediately I noticed a frequent, heavy discharge. Unfortunately unlike most of you, mine has a rather metallic/radioactive smell. Hard to describe, but considering I've NEVER had a smell,of any sort, there-it is extremely unwelcome and disturbing! (Good thing I'm not sexually active at the moment! Haha).I usually take 7.5mg Adderall IR in the morning (It's actually 3/4s of a 10mg). Occassionally on long work days I will take half of another, (5mg), in the late afternoon/early evening. On 2 separate occassions I have taken one 20mg Adderall XR in the moring (none the rest of the day). And I have gone several days here and there without taking any when not working. I find that no matter the dosage/quantity, I have the same problem with the discharge/smell; even on the days that I did not take any. I have to say that even though I am single at the moment, this is so disturbing that I will definitely STOP taking Adderall when this Rx runs out! (Hey..ya never know when Mr. Right may show up!) :)By the way, THANK YOU to everyone who has posted; you have NO idea how distressed I was before I found this page!!! And to the gentlemen severely abusing this medication, I will keep you in my prayers and hope that you see the light,(as in STOP taking Adderall), before all you see is darkness. (No, I'm not an extremely religious person...just extremely scared for you!)
