From this study (2 weeks ago):
My friend recently wanted me to quit smoking, so he got me a ecigarette so it is less harmful. I now use it more than i usually smoke because i can use it in the house. Before i had to go outside to have a smoke, now i can read a book or watch tv with it right in front of me and avoid the hassle of going outside. Because of the convenience, i use it fairly regularly in side.

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.

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.
