....EASILY throughout the day. Maybe it's more.

I just feel like i need to...mouth gets all dry.

Is this at all unsafe?


thanks

I don't know what the max amount of water that is safe but you can over hydrate. I would think you'd have to drink an awful lot though. Adderall causes dry mouth and I know that I should be drinking way more than I actually do.

A healthy adults kidneys can process fifteen litres of water a day. You aren't at an unsafe level.

I drink more water on ritalin too, for me its both dry mouth and it keeps my stomach from feeling uneasy. I'm probably at 8-9l myself, just over 2 gallons. The only downside so far is going to the washroom more than I'm used to.

When I used to treeplant in the summer years and years ago I would drink 16 to 20 litres a day and pee once on the hot days. I would add gatorade powder to the water to keep the electrolytes up though.
