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

I am a 25 yr/o male that is having the opposite effect.

brief synopsis I have been on adderall since I was 13 I was off of it from age 19-21. I am now having a lack of drive to do ANYTHING! I mean getting off the couch is an achievement. I am a business owner and have the luxury of being lazy from time to time but this is a constant for the past 4 months.

I also suffer from premature ejac. I have had this issue for as long as i can remember except for the couple years i was off of it and even then I wasn't as long lasting as I had hoped. during masturbation I can last about 1-2 minutes and during sex I might last 6-10 thrusts. I am married so she knew what she was getting but I am tired of this side effect.

Another one I am having and im quite sure its not attributed to being married because I had the same issue in the past. I lack the drive to have actual sex. I would rather masturbate at times than have sex. my wife who is not on any meds wants it 24/7 and shes gorgeous however I on the other hand rarely want it. I often find myself masturbating 2-1 over sex. Idk if this is a brain function side effect of the adderall or if it is just my own issue.

The main reason i joined this forum and I know this is not the thread to talk about it but ill give it a shot anyways is because as i said earlier the 30mg XR is not working anymore.

It works for about 3 hours then slowly wears off within the 4th hour. as before I was good for about 8 hours.

I dont use it recreationally and can honestly say that only once have I accidentally taken more than the prescribed dose on accident and that was just 60mg. (I forgot I took it that day)

I now find myself to be a horrible procrastinator and lack the give a damn to do anything that is productive. I often find my priorities are messed up I will spend all day watching tv not doing anything productive and while I know this I cant bring myself to change anything about it.

I have seen on other sites people with the same problems that I have they call it an adderall crash i believe. Do any of yall have this issue how did you fix it?

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

crosbyfd85 - welcome to the forum.

I wonder how much these two problems (lack of drive to do anything, and lack of desire for sex with your wife) are just the same problem showing in different ways.

Also there's the embarrassment or inadequate feelings about premature ejaculation, and nobody wants to repeat that kind of bad feelings. When you know that your wife is interested in sex, I think there are two very easy things you can do for a start: first, to put it bluntly, give her a lot of pleasure while you still have your pants on. Second, you have to know and remember that she cares a whole lot less about P.E. and a whole lot more about "Why doesn't he love me anymore". The fact that you're so excited to see her is not such a bad thing, is it?

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

Procrastination isn't fixed by medication. In fact, procrastination gets worse on medication, if you let it.

Medication makes you able to follow through with your decisions. If you decide "I'm going to procrastinate", then you will procrastinate with the power of 10 ordinary men.

So you have to consciously make good decisions for yourself about what you're going to do with your time. That's what allows your meds to benefit you.

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

(Regarding the pants: if she's excited and tries to undress you, there's nothing wrong with a little explanation of why you want to leave them on for now... and some hints of what you plan to do next.)

Very, very true. The same mechanics that help you focus will also allow you to focus on the wrong thing if you allow. I'm as guilty as they come.

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

Im a 25yo male in good physical condition. I'm on 70 mg of Vyvanse and 10 mg of Adderall IR. The Vyvanse really helps me out when it decides to kick in. I also get a urge to masturbate and have sex alot AND the wife is willing! Sounds good right? Well... I think the Vyvanse has me wanting to have sex ALL OF THE TIME but is not allowing me to. I never had a problem with E.D. before I started the vyvanse. It is nearly impossible for me to get or maintain an erection no matter how "hot" things are going. ALSO, I is nearly impossible for me to orgasm/ejaculate. I last TOO long.. Does anybody have any suggestions or similar experiences? I know I'm not the only one but this is very frustrating.

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

mrlinck7421,

Oh dear the stuff is tormenting your trapped loins lol. Poor *******. Sympathy.

This is beyond me, I'd ask a doctor if there is any physical explanation or aspect that can be manipulated.

Are you on an SSRI or antidepressant? Common effect on them, perhaps amplified. Well the not being able to empty the milk carton, the higher drive, that's from the stimulant.

During my first week or two with Ritalin I noticed an increase sex drive, but it seemed to wane after that back to normal.

However even with the increase libido, it was of little importance to me, I was discovering the profound difference Ritalin made to me mentally, which I can't describe to be frank. I feel guilt almost, it worked too well for me. It was not perfect sure, it has some side effects, such as some physical tension feelings, but like it literally felt like it "fixed" my brain.

I was totally engrossed in exploring this, watching TV, but the focus, not like I had known before. Ability to drive myself towards rationally decided goals, its as all such tasks I had done before I was burdened by massive iron weights on my shoulders.

Also things like say "playing computer games" has massive motivational pull before, but on Ritalin everything was "much more even motivation-ally". Strange and weird as it sounds I enjoyed the sense of accomplishment from completing tasks stupidly basis to others, were previously, painful and horrendous to me.

The benefit was BEYOND the ADHD understanding I had at the time, but fits very well with my recently acquired expanded Executive Functioning model.

Sorry to sidetrack Ritalin- years ago now- I still did like to talk a lot on it though, it did not make me verbally less talkative, but I was more focused and rational in conversation, yes. In all other ways though what I might consider ADHD, basically vanished.

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

Interesting post. I seem to have {almost}completely lost my lust for porn/masturbation since I started Adderall. It's kind of a bummer, that was one of my good fixes per se since I don't drink or do any illegal drugs. I can also relate to the procrastination comment. I've become a pro at that. On a lighter note, im much less scatterbrained and can actually sit still, read and enjoy it. Hopefully my enjoyment of porn will come back in due time. I miss it lol

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

It's amazing how different these drugs effect different people. I took ritalin for 6 years and my sex drive became out of control. I sometimes went into a 4-5 hour trance where I did nothing but look for porn. I felt so disgusted with myself. When I started taking Ritalin I was only 16 and this wasn't a problem, but it got worse as the years went on.Even though I liked ritalin, I have changed to Adderall now and I have found that I no longer do insane things like look for the HD version of my favorite porn video for several hours. Instead, adderall has largely blunted my sex drive and I'm very happy about that.

You're definitely not alone. First, I'd be curious to know if you watch porn because although this society generally views it as being harmless - it is a dopamine releasing and rewiring machine. Porn is destructive to the limbic system, please refer to ,yourbrainonporn.com, and it'll help you understand what I mean. I watched lots of porn when I was younger and it had a lasting impact. Have quit and found that, so long as I am not on Dexedrine or amphetamines, that I have normal use of my erection.

In some cases, cialis or Viagra could help. Otherwise try and search the database 'cause you're not alone.

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

Porn and masterbation are going to desensitise you. Porn induced ed.

Porn and wanking are very bad. I am currently rebooting and I have no end of symptoms.

Beware.

Wanking is very good, in its proper place and proportion. Porn is bad in different ways and different degrees on a number of different levels. Porn is a very weird subject to try to unravel in terms of its moral problems of good and bad and healthy and unhealthy. There is a great deal of evil inherent in the porn industry, and yet there is also a great deal of good inherent in sex and sexuality and in which pornography can theoretically participate in some way. A huge topic that quickly leads to politics and religion and which therefore we can't really discuss fully on here. Masturbation, on the other hand (or on both hands if you prefer) is clear and simple: masturbation is good, if you want to, and in moderation; masturbation is a personal choice that does not involve politics at all, and though masturbation may be seen in some circles as a religious issue, it is a much less important religious issue than pornography because of its private individual nature and its lack of direct harm to anyone.

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

Your dose is too high if that's happening, or you're taking it to get high. There is no way that should be happening on any legitimate dosing, and my guess is it's not just happening with porn, but you probably get fixated on some medial task and spend hours on it too. I used to be on a substantially higher dose and I would spend abnormally high amounts of time on the same task. If I were watching porn, I would do it for an absurd amount of time, or if I were cleaning the bathtub I would do it for 4 hours, or if I were organizing a single drawer for 4 hours. That will still happen if I get up into the 80-100mg range. You might feel more euphoric and energetic, but it's equally as unproductive as if you don't take it at all. While you're fixated you might feel productive, but the next day when you aren't fixated you realize how unproductive and useless that time really was "like did I really spend 4 hours arraigning 10 pairs of socks in one drawer." Higher doses definitely doesn't equally higher productivity.

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

I just joined this site, because I was wondering if I was the only one like this. I was diagnosed with ADD back in grade school and after the military I started taking meds again when I went back to school. The last few years I was on Vyvanse and fell in love with masturbation while taking it. I switched back to Adderall IR and its the same. These meds are important for school and career, but DAMN my limbido goes crazy. I love masturbating for hours and look forward to it. I live with my gf and like someone else said, I can't wait until she goes to bed sometimes, so I can be alone. She use to love when I was all horned up and would have fun with her for hours, but she is blaaaaaaaa to it anymore. My problem is, I don't want to orgasm because then I can play as long as I want. If I have the big O, its feels good, but blaaaaaaaaaaaa. I had a crazy sex drive when I was young and even while un-medicated in the military, but this is bad. I can't lie though, I like it. Always wanted to talk to someone else who was like this. Good thread!!
