What are the possible side effects of Adderall?
Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Stop using Adderall and call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects:

fast, pounding, or uneven heartbeats;

feeling light-headed, fainting;

increased blood pressure (severe headache, blurred vision, trouble concentrating, chest pain, numbness, seizure); or

tremor, restlessness, hallucinations, unusual behavior, or motor tics (muscle twitches).

Continue taking Adderall and talk to your doctor if you have any of these less serious side effects:

headache or dizziness;

sleep problems (insomnia);

dry mouth or an unpleasant taste in your mouth;

diarrhea, constipation;

loss of appetite, weight loss; or

loss of interest in sex, impotence, or difficulty having an orgasm.

Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Talk to your doctor about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome.

    Side Effects
    Adderall’s side effects, or contraindications as they are properly known, identified in the drug trials are in most cases mild and relatively infrequent. During Adderall’s drug trials poor appetite, stomachaches, and insomnia were the generally reported side effects by parents but headaches were rated notably more significant when children were receiving higher doses of Adderall.

    The frequency of these side effects do vary from trial to trial depending on dose and age of the participants. In trials on children, loss of appetite occurred 10 more often as an Adderall side effect than the placebo or chance frequency. It affected 22% of those taking Adderall. Insomnia was seven or eight times more likely and affected 17% of those on the drug. In adults headaches were twice as frequent (26% of users) and loss of appetite ten times more likely (33% of users).

    The data doesn’t reveal how many users suffered multiple side effects but at least 20% of all users of Adderall suffer a side effect and it could be 40% or more.

    I hope this helps.
