Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • * Pre-Diabetic
    * 201 lbs
    * Two 18mg of Concerta (Morning dosage)
    * 1 Metformin (Night dose -- not taken every night)

    I'm worried about my appetite. For a while now I have been noticing a decrease-- I barely eat. The trouble is determining whether it is the medication I take, an eating disorder (or beginning of one), or just general diet (as I have been trying to lose weight). I do induce vomiting and nausea occasionally after large meals to get rid of some of the calories. I avoid eating after school because of the calories.

    It is confusing to me because I have had these tendencies for a while before taking any medication or being diagnosed with ADHD. It carried over from before any of this. My mood is unstable and tends to be chronically negative -BUT- this has been a trait of mine for years. I can barely drag myself out of bed in the mornings on some days -- not due to tiredness but due to not wanting to deal with the world and my life. This also has been going on for years.

    The strange responses to food and eating have been going on for about a year now-- about the same amount of time I have been trying to lose weight.

    To conclude all of this, its been blending over from before so that I have no idea whether or not medication is altering me or whether i have an eating disorder or not. I have noticed a more drastic decrease in appetite within the past two weeks but have been taking a double dose in the morning for longer than that.

  • From this study (12 months ago):

  • I feel socially awkward and have low self esteem. I am unable to connect with other people. This was brought about the same time I started taking Vyvanse and Ritalin. I have been diagnosed with and treated for depression in the past.
