Adderall and Weightlifting
Background: I have been formally diagnosed with ADD and have been on many different such medicactions since I can remember to help me with focus and concentration on academic work and the like.
Well, I am weaning myself off of one that I tried recently called Stratera, it proved to be unaffecteive for me. Today I took the ACT test for college, but I was not alone.
A friend of mine gave me a pill of Adderall to try, and it deffinately gave me the results I needed. I used to be on Adderall long ago but It make me have ticks, which they said I would grow out of as I became older.
Well, I am older now and Adderall definately had a positive effect on my performance today. I would relate it to a PWO after a workout, it was THAT effective today.
MY QUESTION TO YOU IS: I have researched Adderall for a week or two (yes, before I took it today) and have seen that a lot of the side-effects are appetite surpression. How will this affect me as a powerlifter/bodybuilder? Would the difference in appetitie be that noticable or severe?
Thank you everyone.
