From this study (1 month 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.

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.

From this study (2 months ago):
Recurrent shingles for last 1-2 years with them now coming almost as soon as I am off the 7 days 3000 gram course. Two weeks ago during the 5th day of the 3000 per day, I awoke and the muscles of my lower extremities were so tight and rigid I could hardly bend to move. Painful to get around, could bend. Joints stiff, but it the muscles, WOWEE.. took 5 days to gradually go away. During this, I had gone to 500 2x a day of Valtrex and the shingles were back in 3 days. Nose gets stuffy, extreme itch that 3 benadryl can't touch, and of course tingle and burn. Always in my hair, forehead and sometimes on bridge of nose. I had to start another round of 3000 gram/day. Today is my last day of one week of 500 2x day, and will go to 500 1x day. I itch, tingle, sore, ache and have a few bumps but nothing that has actually popped out YET. This weekend we will see. I have been doing this since 2013.
They started out every couple months, now perpetual.
