Adderall and Missed Period?!
KibClark posted:
Im over a week late for my period. Ive been taking adderall for almost 2 months. took one pregnancy test, negative. i have sore breats, lower back pains, dizzness. Does adderall mess with your period at all? help!!

Not directly, but one of the side effects of adderall is a decreased appetite. How have your weight and diet changed? I know when I started adderall I lost about 15lbs in the first month or so because I just didn't feel hungry. A drastic weight change like that could mess with your cycle.

I have lost weight. and i was almost 3 weeks late. but got my period. i know when your younger you can still get your period when your pregnant, so just to be safe i am going to get a blood test at my doctors. thank you!
