Most of the time weight loss has to do with not having an appetite. Its not because the drug causes weight loss.

Re: Does vyvanse cause stroke or Bell's palsy in healthy 18 year old females?

Hey there! you seem to have pretty identical worries to me :P however, I'm more concerned with cardiac issues. for context, I'm 19 and male.
my bpm always worries me so damn much and so do minor side effects meds give here and there. Its so frustrating trying to work out what is anxiety and stress and what is a genuine concern.
Your resting and walking bpm are the exact same as mine and I've had blood tests, ECGs and a few other tests to make sure my heart is fine. And I have been told that yes, my heart IS fine. A pretty big variation in bpm would be caused by anxiety and the fact that stimulants do cause a slightly elevated bpm

Hope we can both find peace of mind with our meds! All the best

Don't amphetamines increase your metabolism?
But on personal experience, yeah. I haven't lost any weight at all after half a year of amphetamines. But i do know that amphetamines make people lose their appetite entirely, which isn't the case for me. Nor do I have any trouble sleeping like some people.
