Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 days ago):

  • Loved the focus that came with adderall, if I take it with food there's no burping but I have burping spells every half hour or so if I don't eat when I take. The headache is 50/50, I use low-dose Tylenol if it's present. The most unsettling is the BO; I used to go a few days without anyone noticing that I haven't showered (I'm lazy, okay?) but now I have to wash my underarms twice a day in addition to bathing like a normal person.

  • From this study (6 days ago):

  • I had been given an antibiotic and an antiseptic mouth rinse. A thrush infection followed. I was treated for that but the coated tongue and cotton mouth persist.

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • Red ears and cheeks that feel warm to the touch. BP 142/78, pulse is weak but regular. When I stand up I get slight headache and I am shakey.
