Question Adderall and Cold Weather

Does anyone notice that you feel different or "funny" in any way on the Adderall when the weather changes cold?

Re: Adderall and Cold Weather

What do you mean?

I notice my toes are little ice cubes when my foot feels just a little cool.
I'm told it is not uncommon for outer extremeties.

Re: Adderall and Cold Weather

Thanks Capt....Well, I got a little more info out of my son. He said his heart beats faster when he's cold and shivering (moreso while on the adderall than normal) then when gets into a warmer place, like from the cold outside to into the warmer classroom, he notices he sweats more than usual. It was uncomfortable enough for him to not want to be taking the addy this week, as it's very cold for us in Phoenix - we are so spoilt! I was bummed...

Anyone else notice this? I told him it probably had to do with the vasoconstriction idea. Off to wikiread.

Re: Adderall and Cold Weather

I feel my Adderall benefits diminish when I'm out in the cold, say more than fifteen minutes plus. I guess my blood vessels are constricting when I shiver and that causes less blood to circulate throughout the body hence less addy action? Who knows. After noticing this change, I quickly go back inside the house and turn on the heater. It makes the chemicals in my body move again for the good.

Re: Adderall and Cold Weather


My hands get very cold during the winter season. And when I get out of the shower I usually sweat a bit and I know that is from the Adderall.

Re: Adderall and Cold Weather

Since starting on Adderall (2 weeks ago), I have notice that my fingers and toes feel cold. I would even say they feel like ice cubes. And lately, I have really noticed the changes in air temp over my exposed skin, since the recent cold snap here in Chicago.

What makes this more noticeable for me, is that until I started on Adderall, I have had little trouble with heat regulation. I would always feel 'comfortable' in ambient temps as low as 60(f). Now, if the mercury hits 70, I am running for the thermostat.

Re: Adderall and Cold Weather

Lol, I have ice cold extremities and shiver like crazy when it's below 74 degrees fahrenheit even when not on adderall..so I guess I'm worst off than all you people.

Re: Adderall and Cold Weather

The sweating isn't uncommon either. Though for me it was more of a side-effect of the Barr generic adderall. When I switched to the Sandoz, that side-effect disappeared.

Re: Adderall and Cold Weather

I have accustomed myself to the dropping temps over the past months here because I am just too damn stubborn to give up sitting outside. I love to just sit outside and have my lappy and relax. I smoke so that is one big reason I am out there. Summer spoiled the crap out of me and I realised last night I was sitting in 32F temps with gloves on and stuff. My hands are the worst of the cold areas. Feet can be cold but mostly it is my hands.
