Re: Adderall=lots of porn/masturbation for anyone else?

No. I noticed that my sex drive went down. My sexual cravings disappeared. I was on 20mg a day of xr, and noticed less drive than no meds. My rx got increased to 30mg 2x's of ir a day and it went away even farther. I'm off of addaral now and on wellbutrin 150mg once a day. Everything is on the up and up now!

Re: Adderall=lots of porn/masturbation for anyone else?

When my meds are working, I have no problem avoiding online porn. Adderall IR gave me the 'willpower.'

Maybe it has to do with perseveration, dopamine, etc. etc. etc. All I know is that when I'm focused and motivated the porn 'addiction' goes away.

Re: Adderall=lots of porn/masturbation for anyone else?

actually here's the case with adderall for me that i now see. i dont do adderall on weekends, days off, and vacation time. i forgot to do it this monday so i was off three days. normally adderall makes me very inclined to go and masturbate, but that monday i felt nothing of it. however when im off adderall for some time (in this case 3 days i guess) i dont get very horny or libidinous, but i usually cant stop getting hard ons. 90% of them that i get in a day are involuntary (well, arnt they all?hahaha) with 0 stimulation physically, visually, or mentally. so i think either way, adderall or not, i have high libido

Re: Adderall=lots of porn/masturbation for anyone else?

Jesus, I've just started on methylphenidate and I swear I'm so horny I could shag my way through a brick wall.

I hope this is a temporary side-effect... at least at this level of intensity.

Re: Adderall=lots of porn/masturbation for anyone else?

-Nick- im afraid that ive got bad news for you. ive been on adderall for about 2 years now. it doesnt stop. albeit if methylphenidate is not a form of adderall/amphetamine then you might be fine in time

Re: Adderall=lots of porn/masturbation for anyone else?

I am in the beginning stages of getting my dose right for adderall. I find that the more adderall results in more intense stimulation (like way more!) from masturbation. However, too much adderall causes problems in getting an erection. This is apparently because it can cause your blood vessels to contract a bit.

So, if on adderal I get more stimulated as long as I can get the direction. This makes me more interested in doing it.

I thought Adderall Expanded Blood Vessels and Increased Blood Flow...

No. You can find many posts here explaining why some people suffer from erectile dysfunction when they begin taking adderall. This is the result of there blood vessels being to constricted.

I am curious as to why you thought it was meant to increase blood flow.

Has this or anything similar happened with anyone else taking it?
Well, your post was written way back in 2006, so idk if you will ever see this, but yes!!! I can't stop when I do it....I go for HOURS!!!! its like an addiction lol

At first I thought I was just curious but then I found myself spending hours and hours on the internet and it was mostly porn sites. I live with my boyfriend but I am contantly masturbating. Sometimes I can't wait till he goes to bed so I can view the porn sites. I tried telling myself that I didn't need to do this but the urge takes over and I sometimes whi't stop. I also shop compulsively and spend hours just looking. Does any other women out there experience the same! Please let me know!
Thanks
YES!! I can relate sooo much! I too spend hours and hours on the net, and on porn. And I ended up spending ALOT of money while on adderall.....at walmart....It's become a problem! I know your post is old, but just wanted to reply to this!

Re: Adderall=lots of porn/masturbation for anyone else?

To answer the question, yes. I take vyvanse and not adderall but can totally relate. It takes me hours to get off and it usually ends up being some really wired stuff. This side effect is really becoming a problem and is making me consider stopping using. I am at work so I can't go through the whole thread, but did anything help? This is starting to seriously effect my life. I am going to see my doc on the 29th and if I can't find answers, will probably stop taking the medication. I like how it makes me feel but this issue is becoming a serious problem.

no...seriously this is bad. it is rare that something disturbs me so much that it's in my mind all day, whether it's a focus or not. i couldnt sleep at all. probably looking at porn real quick before bed (god forbid i cant fight the urge to look at porn in the future, i will never look at it before bed). bad choice. couldnt sleep, thoughts of anything, mostly ****** up sexual fantasies, some i hope to happen (who doesnt have a fantasy that can happen in real life?), others meant to be fantasies, but also just full of music getting stuck in my head and other thoughts of many other things. i couldnt find a position to get comfortable in and sleep fine in, i was restless and moving throughout the night. i also couldnt stop getting aroused and going a little. then at 5:25 or 5:30 AM (my alarm is set for 6), i suddenly decided "**** it" and did the do.

i feel subhuman and ashamed of myself that it's come down to this. i feel like i really have a problem, but i dont think i do since Adderall is now coming back into my life (and my somewhat be a/the source of my physical restlessness and inability to sleep too, including stimulating my brain to be full of thoughts) and this'll pass.

i am going to fight the porn/masturbation effects of a hightened libido of adderall with will power. im not going to let this go. i cant let this go.

I will fight this and beat it.

sarahsweets thankyou for your comment nonetheless. smiley face
