Talk to your doctor immediately and stop taking it if the condition (for which you are on Adderall) you have isn't life threatening. You will need to get a different prescription that doesn't have depression as a side effect. Depression can be caused by your body's chemical imbalance to the drug. Try to find a natural way to help your body, drugs always have side effects.

Can taking Adderall be harmful if you work out?

Answer: I'm pretty sure there is no harm in working out on Adderall. But there is a fine line between simply working out and pushing yourself to the limits... But, if you are taking it without a prescription in the hopes of getting better results from working out, I highly doubt that the Adderall would do much for that. If it is better performance during work out you want, you might want to try a little thing called steroids. [[ I really do not suggest taking steroids or Adderall without a prescription]] Adderall is not harmful when you work out because it's a stimulant and sitting on your butt and doing nothing but being lazy all day while on adderall is VERY harmful to you. If you are working out on adderall, I highly recommend you drink plenty of water before, during, and after.

Does Adderall make you depressed?

yes it can....when you take adderall youre taking a collection of amphetamines, which floods the chemical dopamine in your brain. so youll get the warm feeling, sweat maybe and of course the concentration that adderall is intetended for, but when it begins to wear off many people experience "crashing" which is when you no longer feel euphoric and full of energy, sometimes people get the chills or just mentally feel crappy...taking adderall, every day in any amount can definitely lead to some depression. remember its highly addictive, if you feel down, depressed or have physical illness later in the day after having taken adderall i would suggest stopping use for a few days and you will feel better. do research, google adderall depression, many people experience it

If you are on adderall should you just stop taking it?

Adderall does not affect your body in any way that could directly cause any reaction when you stop taking it.

Adderall may be taken whatever days you choose and doesn't require to be taken on a regular basis. Start and stop as you wish as long as you can function without it.

Can you work out while taking Adderall?

Yes; moderate exercise is fine while taking Adderall but care should be paid so that you do not over exert yourself, which can feel less tasking while taking stimulants.

Can i take Adderall and Effexor?

You shouldn't need to take both, as Venlafaxine(Effexor) has some stimulatory effects. If you are taking the Effexor for depression or anxiety I would not recommend taking it with Adderall. Adderall has the potential to cause feelings of anxiety, because your brain works overtime, and this can be difficult for some people. Also if you were to stop taking the Adderall (if you did start using it or if you already are) there is a potential for you to feel depressed, this could also happen if your body gets used to the Adderall and needs a higher dosage. So keep that in mind. But, if you talk with your doctor about the risks and benefits of using both of these drugs together, then perhaps you should follows their orders. I would also like to add that Strattera is a non-stimulant medication used for ADHD and has been shown to decrease depression in some patients.
