Re: La Puma: Dexadrine and weight gain

I have ADD and take a low dose of Dexadrine: typically, 5-10 mg/day. I have always been a good shape (middle-aged female), and exercise is part of my life (moderate weight training and regular cardio). But since taking dexadrine (for about a year and half), I have gained about 10-15 pounds that I cannot take off. My diet is pretty good.

Before Dexadrine, I took Adderall and Ritalin, alternately, but I cannot tolerate those medds anymore. Dexadrine is my best solution.

Is it possible that the Dexadrine is related to my weight gain? Perhaps because it's centrally but not peripherally active?

I would really like to be at the weight that I feel best at, which preceded my use of Dexadrine. Any ideas? Many thanks.
