Re: Adderall Effects on The Liver?

I know that my doc (ADD specialist) checks liver enzymes as part of the bloodwork he does (and gives EKGs) for his pts on stimulants.

Stimulants can change heart rhythms, so an EKG (1x) on a new med is important.

He also checks my BP regularly.

You should be getting all three checked, yup.

Re: Adderall Effects on The Liver?

As far as I know, you probably will not have to worry about anything on the hepatic angle, as amphetamines are excreted fairly easily and show little toxicity here.

Re: Adderall Effects on The Liver?

don't think there are any effects on the liver but cardiac there may be. All depends on how your system reacts to the meds. Blood pressure will be checked regularly, my pdoc checks my blood pressure every time I see him. You will most likely have blood work done periodically just to be sure everything is ok.

Great idea, I forgot about that. I take it from time to time to cleanse my liver. Tylers liver detox is also a good one, although it is more expensive.

Re: Adderall Effects on The Liver?

I apologize for opening an ancient thread but......

I take Milk Thistle and I'm wondering when the best time would be to take it.

I'm currently on 20mg Adderall XR, once a day. The Milk Thistle needs to be taken twice a day. I'm wondering if I take it too close to the Adderall, could the Milk Thistle interfere with the Adderall, like rush is out of my body too fast?

It might be a dumb question, but the Adderall XR costs me $220/mo and I don't want it wasted......

Thanks in advance!

Giz

Re: Adderall Effects on The Liver?

I have hep-c and I take milk thistle along with a few other supplements that support liver health. I take them about an hour after my morning dose of Adderall (30mg IR). I'm not sure how long I've had hep but I found out in 2002 when I participated in a blood drive. Anyway I've never had any liver enzyme problems, just the virus present in my blood. I get blood tests every 6 months. Three years of taking 60mg a day of Adderall doesn't seem to be doing any damage....I'm sure the milk thistle helps.

Re: Adderall Effects on The Liver?

I believe they check liver enzyme levels because if there's a problem with your liver, it can lead to a buildup of Adderall in your system. I'm not aware of it causing liver problems though.
