Can Adderall stop your period?

Sorry for the TMI but I am a four day kind of girl. I was on my second day when I started adderall and it just....stopped. I have been really good about nutrition and water and last night was able to sleep so I don't think I am taxingy body TOO much....

Re: Can Adderall stop your period?

I take Ritalin and it really lightens my period - once it wears off at the end of the day it comes back though. I actually really like that side effect since it's more convenient for it to be lighter during the day!

Re: Can Adderall stop your period?

Well they are vasoconstrictors, so I wonder if maybe it lessens it for that reason.

Re: Can Adderall stop your period?

It never stopped mine but it did help me to remember to buy tampons though.

Re: Can Adderall stop your period?

I wonder if Vyvanse has the same reaction... because I've noticed that as well... just never thought to ask

My first question is ... how old are you? not to be noisy but I had the same thing happen to me when I was taking Straterra, all of a sudden my cycle stopped. I am a person who wants to know why, why did it stop? I take medication for seizures, and low and behold I read that Tegretol can bring early menopause. I has now been 6 or 7 years, and I have gone through early menopause because of the anti-epilepsy medication.

So If you are taking other medications, I would advise you to do some reading on that specific med. Happy Reading.
