I have been on Adderall/Vyvanse for 12 years. I’m 5’3 and have always weighed between 116 to 125 max, even after two kids! However, the beginning of 2019 I gained 15 pounds in literally two months. I had not changed my diet or exercise, there was no reason for the weight gain. I talked to my doctor and after blood work, could not explain why it was happening. I got up to 145 in 4 months. It has been a year now, and I’m down to 138. This has never happened to me and I have been so stressed as well. Has anyone found a solution or answer as to why this could be happening? By the way, I take 30 mg adderall 2x/day (Max legal dosage) and have for years.
