Exclamation I believe Adderall helps alleviate my Allergy symptoms

So, I'm prescribed 40 mg Adderall A day (30XR, 10iR) and had been experiencing elevated moodiness. My doctor instructed me to not use adderall for the next few days until my appointment this Friday. He wants to evaluate if it's the adderall or the Prozac affecting my mood. Anyways, I have noticed my allergies worsen since I payed off the adderall. I know that nasal decongestants have a similar chemical structure(Benzene ring, methylene, and a basic amine group).

Re: I believe Adderall helps alleviate my Allergy symptoms

I have noticed the adderall is less effective when my allergies act up. But I haven't paid attention to whether or not adderall helps with symptoms.

Re: I believe Adderall helps alleviate my Allergy symptoms

The vasoconstrictive effects of amphetamines help with nasal congestion.

Hence, in particular, the original Benzedrine inhaler.




Cheers,
Ian

T cells. Spoke to an immunologist about this once.

I was told Dex has some influence on these.

My allergies always aren't nearly as bad. Thank you Dex

Re: I believe Adderall helps alleviate my Allergy symptoms

Amphetamines are pretty similar in chemical structure to decongestants like pseudoephedrine. No surprise that you get some relief from them. I noticed when I had a pretty bad cold last year that the adderall I was taking strongly helped my sinsues clear up some during the day.
