Is Adderall Causing Mouth And Stomach Symptoms?
(Newest replies first)

HardCandy86 Says:

I am: female, age 30, 'overweight', tobacco smoker, and have been taking 30mg amphetamine salts twice a day for several months. I'm having several weird symptoms. My tongue is white pretty much all the time and a couple times a month taste buds around the tip of my tongue will become red and VERY painful. It is not thrush. Spots in my mouth will seem like it is sloughing off dead skin, as the spots are white and easily come off. During flossing, my teeth (usually fillings) have started to break off and I am acquiring cavities rather quickly. I do keep up with my oral hygiene.

I am on 20mg IR 3 times a day and it did the sans thing to me. My gums even hurt. You need to ask for Pilocarpine. It is a life saver. Not many doctors know about it, be persistent. I told them I did some googling and I tried everything for dry mouth and my teeth are so damaged. Pilocarpine Saved me! Ask for it asap!

I take Adderall and it causes dry mouth. Dry mouth is bad on your teeth I brush 6 times a day and floss about 4 times a day. It won't help unless you stop taking it. I have had to pay thousands of dollars for my teeth already and before I started taking it I never had a cavity in my life. It will cause holes in your teeth so I suggest you go to the dentist 4 times a year and get your teeth checked or else you will end of losing all of your teeth they is nothing out their that can prevent it.

As reported by the FDA, it has been known to cause sores and white spots in the mouth, as well as causing a tooth disorder. It also carries the risk of being habit forming.

So yes, it could be due to the medication. It would be best to have it checked out, as you may do better switching to a different medication.

Is there anything else I can help with?
