Can you experience side affects from Adderall on day one?
My 7 year old son began taking Adderall XM 5 mg this morning at 9:00 A.M. and was fine most of the day.
At around 8:00 P.M. he began complaing of a stomache ache and a headache which is very rare for him especially both together.
Both of these are traditional side affects of the medicine but I wonder if it is more of a coensidence that he felt what he did the first day of Adderall or if it is driectly linked regardless of it being day one.

Answer by Andrew
it is bring absorbed into his system and like most medicines gets absorbed in 2 hrs, it is possible that side effects are already happening, but it doesnt seem that unlikely, i have taken some perscriptions that the side effects kicked in in less than 12 hours so i highly doubt that this is abnormal

Before taking Adderall
Do not take Adderall if you have used an MAO inhibitor such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), tranylcypromine (Parnate), phenelzine (Nardil), rasagiline (Azilect), or selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam) within the past 14 days. Serious, life-threatening side effects can occur if you take Adderall before the MAO inhibitor has cleared from your body.

Do not use Adderall if you are allergic to amphetamine and dextroamphetamine or if you have:
– heart disease or moderate to severe high blood pressure (hypertension);
– arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries);
– overactive thyroid;
– glaucoma;
– severe anxiety, tension, or agitation; or if you have a history of drug or alcohol addiction.

Some stimulants have caused sudden death in children and adolescents with serious heart problems or congenital heart defects.

Before using Adderall, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs, or if you have:
– a congenital heart defect;
– high blood pressure;
– heart failure, heart rhythm disorder, or recent heart attack;
– a personal or family history of mental illness, psychotic disorder, bipolar illness, depression, or suicide attempt;
-epilepsy or other seizure disorder; or tics (muscle twitches) or Tourette’s syndrome.

If you have any of these conditions, you may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely take Adderall.

How you should take Adderall
Take this medication exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not take the medication in larger amounts, or take it for longer than recommended by your doctor. Follow the directions on your prescription label.

Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results from Adderall.

Take this medication with a full glass of water. Do not crush, chew, break, or open an Adderall extended-release capsule. Swallow the pill whole. It is specially made to release medicine slowly in the body. Breaking or opening the pill would cause too much of the drug to be released at one time.

To be sure Adderall is helping your condition, your doctor will need to see you on a regular basis. Do not miss any scheduled visits to your doctor.

This medication can cause you to have unusual results with certain medical tests. Tell any doctor who treats you that you are using Adderall.

Store Adderall at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light. Adderall is a drug of abuse and may be habit-forming. Keep track of how many pills have been used from each new bottle of this medicine. You should be aware if any person in the household is using this medicine improperly or without a prescription. Using Adderall improperly can cause death or serious side effects on the heart.
