So here is my newest dilemma fellas. I now weigh 180 which is great because its on the way to my goal of 200lbs, but I have recently been prescribed adderall by my doctor to help with my ADHD. I have sever trouble focusing at work, school, and even tasks at home. It really helps, but the downside is it really kills my appetite which is a common side affect of the drug. I've read that many people even use it to loose weight, and that many guys have trouble maintaining mass. Anyone else here have this trouble? Any recommendations. Its not just that my appetite is gone, its that I honestly don't even realize I need food most of the time. So far I am on week two, and so far all I have lost is fat, my muscles look a little more prominent, and my strength is still the same, but I am terrified I am going to start loosing muscle soon. I realize that I could simply stop taking the medication or try a different one, but thats really not an option. I have tried others before and this is the first to actually work. I was thinking I should just eat as large a breakfast as possible (before I take my medicine) and maybe start drinking some weight gainer shakes and keeping some protein bars and almonds to snack on during the day. What do you guys think? Is gaining mass still really a possibility on this medication or should I just start working more on staying lean and defined?
