Rash with Adderall?

Been on Adderall for about 4 months, maybe 5, but anyway, the last couple of weeks, I have been getting a bit of an itchy rash around my neck and a little down on my chest. Barely visible, if at all. Sometimes I can feel it a bit on my back as well though this may be a slight sunburn.

I take a 20 ER and 10mg IR as needed.

Anyone else have this?

It is not that bad and I can pretty much ignore it but since I sometimes am prone to worrying I spent the morning at work researching Stevens Johnson Syndrome, convincing myself that I am going to die from this almost invisible rash.

Really don't want to give up the Adderall as it is sort of a game changer.

Want to go get an allergy test of some kind but the only dermatologist office I talked to today said they could do a "patch test" to see what is causing this but that they didn't do general testing for allergies, that I'd have to go to an allergist. That sounds expensive.

Anyway, any input is appreciated.

Hey DD, No rashes associated w/ amphetamines for me. If it was me, I would call my PCP for an appointment, let him know the Meds I have been taking and go from there. -LN

Re: Rash with Adderall?

Definitely get your rash checked out by the appropriate medical professionals.

I don't think it's a common side effect from Adderall. Even if it is, perhaps it's one of the inactive ingredients this is causing it. If that's the case, you can just find a different generic brand that doesn't contain that ingredient.

Re: Rash with Adderall?

Thanks. It is gone now. I just took a 20 ER as what I had been taking was 10 IR.

It could have been fruit salad or a bunch of other things that caused it so I will wait and see if it comes back.
