Heat Intolerance & Adderall ?

So,

I just went to my second Dr. appt, as I have been having multiple episodes of heat intolerance/exhaustion. Bloodwork and Heart are all good and now sending me to a specialist to test glands/thyroid, as they can figure out whats occurring.

I live in Texas and been on Addreall for 3ish years now, and I take up to 30mg per day. This issues has just started in April 2018 this year, of me getting out in the heat and sweating like crazy, shortness of breath, increased heartbeat and get extremely weak. I am not dehydrated, as I am an avid golfer and will prep the day before I play now, hydrating and taking electrolytes before, during and after and this still will not help. I also have gone the route of not taking meds when out in the sun but same result.

I just turned 40 this year but geez, one would think I could handle 90 degree heat... doing non strenuous activities.

Anyone have same or similar reactions? Suggestions? At this point I am desperate, as I do not like being stuck in the house. I am always want to be outside tinkering with something.

Re: Heat Intolerance & Adderall ?

I'm heat intolerant...but I don't associate it with my meds as I've been this way for more than a decade before taking them.
Also my experiences aren't like yours. Where you get physical symptoms...my are more mental where I just get real anxious and upset when warm. Like I crave coolness.

It really sucks that it's interfering with your enjoyment of outdoor activities.

Have you considered moving to the north pole?

Frustrating that the doctors didn't know right away what was going on...but hopefully they will here shortly and can work on a plan with you.

Sorry I don't have a better reply lol. I have no answers or anything .

Welcome to the forums though!

Re: Heat Intolerance & Adderall ?

Yeah its for sure been very frustrating trying to figure this out. I just wonder if years of taking my adderall has somehow caused this?

Doesn't really seem like others experience what I am going through though.

Yeah I've been a pretty regular member of these forums for 4 or 5 years now, and it's not something I think I've ever heard anyone bring up before.

Have you considered talking to your doctor about switching to a different med for your ADHD to see if the switch does anything for you?
You can always go back to Adderall if needed/wanted.

Re: Heat Intolerance & Adderall ?

As Adderall raises your metabolism your body can overheat. Everything in your body is working harder, feel your heartbeat sometime. Myself and a few others I know feel hot and overheated too. Called the "sweat" even though I do not really sweat, just feel like I am burning up. A few side effects that contribute to overheating are - abnormal heartbeat, high blood pressure, and elevated body temperature.

Re: Heat Intolerance & Adderall ?

I definitely have this issue and I do associate it with taking Adderall.

And I agree that it doesn't seem to just go away if you take a break from Adderall for a couple days or so.

It's starting to get really bad for me as it's getting warmer and more humid where I live.

It's not just my perception, too. I get a LOT of comments about my sweating, even from strangersó"Wow! Is it raining outside?", "Wow! It must really be hot out!", "Did you just run here?", "Did you just workout?"

I don't know the solution, and I am very concerned as I am starting a new job on Monday that does involve physical exertion.

The only thing I can think of trying is to exercise more, improve my conditioning, and get into better shape in general.

I do notice that when I isolate and remain sedentary for a few days or weeks (something easy to fall into with Adderall), the sweating is worse when I ultimately have to go out and do something physical.

Lastly, I have been smoking cigarettes lately, and I believe that also triggers extra sweating. So I've got to cut that out, too.

Good luck

Re: Heat Intolerance & Adderall ?

I've had heat intolerance with Adderall. I was told the dangerous part is the shortness of breath and rapid heart beat. I was taken off of it.

Re: Heat Intolerance & Adderall ?

I sweat from my head. It drips down and looks gross. I have always sweat this way when I am hot. In the heat I can say that the adderall makes this more prevalent. Combine that with the vasocontriction where my hands are ice cold.. its really annoying in the summer.

Re: Heat Intolerance & Adderall ?

I recently moved to NYC where the summers are hot and humid. I also just started a new job as a nurse aide.

The sweating has been overwhelming! But I'm trying to manage as best I can.

I was already prescribed propranolol and Klonopin for anxiety, and I'm really hoping the propranolol especially can help lessen the profuse sweating. But I also have to wipe myself down in the bathroom frequently, carry a sweat rag on me, and bring extra scrubs tops to change about 3x per shift because they quickly get soaked with sweat.

I'm really going to try and go the extra mile and exercise at the gym more after or before work in hopes that simple getting into better shape/conditioning helps the sweating go down eventually.

Anybody out there had success in lowering the excess sweating caused by Adderall especially in the summer?

Re: Heat Intolerance & Adderall ?

Oh yes, I get this way. I just thought maybe I was pre menopause or something but now that I think about it, it started shortly after I started taking adderral. It almost feels like I canít breathe when Iím out in the sun. My husband tells me Iím a hermit because itís 80-90ís here now and I wonít even go outside. I know this medicine is helping me for my ADD but itís kind of draining the life out of me . I am sorry that you are experiencing this too, it is not a good feeling

Re: Heat Intolerance & Adderall ?

When I used to take Adderall, I definitely had heat intolerance. I used to flop sweat.
