Adderall impotence - How do you guys cope?

Hey all,

I was just ADHD diagnosed about a half year ago.
I finally got some Adderall XR20 about a month ago, and took it promptly.
After 2-3 days I noticed my penis was a shrunken mockery (rhymes with cockery) of itself.

I immejiately stopped taking.

I've been reading around though, and I feel secure in believing that it's just a temporary reaction, due to the vasoconstricting nature of the methamp content.

But, for those of you who are able to stomach this, how do you do it?
I mean are your sexual partners affected? Do you grow to normal size when you're active? Is oral sex kind of funny to start off? If you're with someone new do you have to explain stuff? Or are you big enough by the time pants come off that they don't notice? Does it get normal sized after a while (I read somewhere that it does, after about 30 days)?
Does it go back to normal after you stop using Adderall, anyone done that?
Does taking a vasodilator such as L-Arginine (or whateva) make it normal?

Does weed or booze or coffee affect the adderall impotence?

Thanks for all and any feedback!

Re: Adderall impotence - How do you guys cope?

I'm afraid it's always been that size. You just weren't focused enough before to see how tiny it was.

Thanks to the Adderall, you're now more self aware over how small your penis is.

p.s It will remain at 1.5, even when erect...

Re: Adderall impotence - How do you guys cope?

This is actually a common side effect for most CNS meds that isn't widely talked about. While your getting used to your meds your penis can become so engorged with blood that you pop a vessel and then a couple hours later it will be the size of a lil'smokie. Once you get used to the meds, could be anywhere from a week to 2 months, your situation will go back to normal and you will be able to masturbate like there's no tomorrow.

Re: Adderall impotence - How do you guys cope?

Haha welcome to Amphetamines! This side effect is by far the worst!!! I go from looking at it and being proud to it looking like it belongs to a prepubescent boy!

If you can obtain cialis it helps a lot and it also lowers your blood pressure too!

Re: Adderall impotence - How do you guys cope?

Yeah, I'm wondering the same thing here. I haven't started taking anything yet, but I am doing lots of research on side effects and what-not. I really want to stay away from the stimulant meds, but the non-stims have some pretty scary side-effects a well. Especially Straterra and ED. How do you guys get past it or work around it? Are you still able to get off, even if you have t use other methods?

Re: Adderall impotence - How do you guys cope?

Is this a Amphetamines curse? Because Amphetamines sure make you more, how shall I put it, feel more "in the mood", but then you have the case of a sleeping giant lol

Re: Adderall impotence - How do you guys cope?

I take 60mg of dextroamphetamine per day in the form of 4 x 15mg Dexedrine spansules.

Does Dexedrine change libido, erectile response, the experience of sexual pleasure, and the nature of orgasm and ejaculation?

Absolutely, all of those things, for me.

But it doesn’t make me impotent, far from it.

That could just be me. And for sure, the right partner helps.

That said, Adderall may have a greater negative effect than Dexedrine in this regard due to the presence of the levo-rotary enantiomers, whereas Dexedrine has none, and is purely dextro-rotary.

The levo-rotary enantiomers of the mixed salts have a greater effect on the PNS, which can lead to greater vasoconstrictive properties, resulting in a greater effect on erectile response, perfusion of blood throughout the genital tissues, and so on.

---

I once trialed Cialis/tadalafil. It worked a treat in terms of erectile quality and perfusion of blood, but did nothing in terms of change to Dexedrine’s effect upon my libido, experience of sexual pleasure, orgasmic response, or ejaculatory response.


Cheers,
Ian

I've found that I can't get as hard as usual on Adderall, but it's not that far off. Adderall skyrockets my sexdrive!

Re: Adderall impotence - How do you guys cope?

Anyone ever try test? Not the gel, I mean like pinning weekly. I did this when I used SSRIs and it helped like nothing else. I was in my late 30's at the time and 100mg/w kept my test levels between 800-1000.

I'm not currently on any stims but will most likely have to start in the near future. From what I've read I fully expect to have some ED issues.
Current Doc recommends ssri+stims. Will meet with a psych in a few weeks to find out.

Re: Adderall impotence - How do you guys cope?

Hi
I'm new to the forum and actually found it by googling this very topic. I have been on adderall ir 60 and a handful of other ssri's and benzo's for about a year now. It took awhile but between my psychiatrist an psychologist they have concocted the perfect cocktail for me. It has done wonders for my mental well being. Except for one thing. Several weeks into adding adderall I noticed my penis was getting smaller. Now ive always been small so o cant afford to loose anymore. Also I cant get or it takes a long time to obtain a erection which has never been a problem. I seen my Dr an he said was most likely temporary an should go back to normal. Gave me a rx for cialias. That was 7 months ago an nothing has changed. My Dr offered to change my meds bit I begged him not to because this is the best I have felt in a very very long time. So I guess I have to live with it.
On a positive note. I have always suffered from PE. I'm also on paroxetine 40 an Ultram 50 for pain and it has stopped the PE altogether as long as I'm taking the meds. I just thought I would offer my story. Maybe it will help somebody out there.

Re: Adderall impotence - How do you guys cope?

All amps cause vasoconstriction.

Adderall is worse than just regular dexamphetamine.

if you can't get hard then your dosage is too high - that said there is also an adjustment period for your body of a few months.

I no longer have any issue with this and when I did it was only maybe 3/4 times in the first six months - my dosage was double of what I actually needed to help my symptoms.

Re: Adderall impotence - How do you guys cope?

Get it on dex, having said that my sex drive is probably better and it goes back to normal pretty quick... just frequently do wtffff's when i take a ****. Ive definitely thought you'd have to do some helicopters in private and get the blood flowing to it before someone looked at it though lol. No way its popping out in front of someone looking like that.
