> I have excessive daytime sleepiness (a mild form of narcolepsy). This is the number one reason my Doctor prescribed Adderall for me. I was on provigil but that pooped out fairly quick for me. But I do also have weight to lose(which I gained from binge eating) so he thought maybe that would be a good choice to maybe address both issues at once with Adderall. Now had I gone in there and said I want you to put me on Adderall so I can lose this weight, he'd have said I don't think so. And I have been seeing this P-Doc who BTW, specializes in Eating Disorders for a couple years now and I can tell you that we have tried many different things and trying Adderall is not his number one choice of therapy.

On further research, looking at Ovations Pharms site, their Desoxyn, IS indeed indicated for SHORT TERM obesity^ perhaps your eating disorders specialists prefered choice?, as i have read of a patient on it describing it as "Anorexia in a pill".

I was still under the impression that for regular weightloss, ONLY, without comorbid ADD/depression in the average patient, that Amps were a nono.
