I am having the same experience as many people here. It’s incredibly frustrating. I hope it’s not the Adderall causing the weight gain, but nothing else makes sense. I brought it up to my doctor and he’s never heard of weight gain attributed to Adderall.

I’m wondering what if any additional supplements people here are taking? I’m on Magnesium, fish oil, and l-Tyrosine, all to help with the tolerance and comedown. My though it that it’s possible the supplements are reacting with the Adderall and triggering cortisol secretion. I am not a doctor and honestly have no idea if what I just said is even possible/makes sense. But I wanted to put it out there in case we might stumble on additional commonalities. I also use light therapy for ~45 minutes every few days and occasionally use a tDCS (Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation) device.

Hope everyone is well.
