  • 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.
