Adderall is a brand-name pharmaceutical psychostimulant composed of mixed amphetamine salts, which is thought to work by increasing the amount of norepinephrine and dopamine in the brain.
Ritalin is a slight bit different / uses different pathways.
LOL. Welcome to the world of meth / methylphenidate. You might wish to investigate the drugs you're taking, read up on the side effects and so on.
If you're wired up on meth all day, you're going to get deal with all the wonderful affects, including appetite loss, anorexia, and the long list of icky stuff.
You think you have depression now? Wait until you try to get off the stuff. Ever read up on how meth works on your brain over time, PHYSICALLY changing it?
You might wish to consider another treatment approach. Study, study, study. You need to understand all this for yourself.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ritalinhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adderallhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concerta
Here's a short list of some of the effects.
Pulse and blood pressure changes, both up and down
Weight loss during prolonged therapy
Urticaria-like rash and itching
The drug is literally causing you to eat yourself alive (the muscle tissue), and that's why you haven't seen a lot fat loss. While the drug hypes your brain, your body suffers. Given enough time, you'll begin to be all stomach and bones.
