From this study (5 months ago):
This drug has ruined my life. I am only 26 years old and I am rapidly gaining weight, am going through premature menopause, and cannot have children. All this has happened since I have GONE OFF THE DRUG. Do not take this drug.
donegal828 on May, 28, 2014:
I feel the same way. I am 27 years old, continuously gaining weight and wish that I had never taken this drug. I am so sorry to hear about the premature menopause and reproductive problems! How did you find out about all of that? Is that definitely a result of taking adderall? How terrible! I need to get myself to the doctor!

I'm 36 now and did the injections at 29. I've had 2 children since but in the 3 years showing signs of pre menopause. Always wondered if it was due to those injections.
