I had heard Dex was big in the 70's for weight loss, so I was surprised my M.D. prescibed it to me. Especially since he mentioned that he was going to monitor my weight. He weighed me the last time I went in, but I have not lost any weight. I noticed a slight change in my appetite, but then again I don't eat alot. It does help me at work. I have a job with a very high stress level and I had been feeling for a while that I could not prioritize my tasks. i was trying to do everything at once, but then not completing any one assignment to the best of my ability. It became very frustrating so Dex has helped me focus and calm down. Thanks for your input.> Viv

> Hi Vivi, I was interested to read what you wrote about your experience with Dexedrine and the effect it has on your weight. I didn't lose weight when I was on Dexedrine. I may have even gained a small amount. I had a good appetite on Dex, especially after I exercised. What I was surprised to discover was that when I got off of Dexedrine, I actually lost weight. I think that happened because I got depressed, and when I'm depressed, everything sort of shuts down, including my entire alimentary canal, which means no hunger and no peristalsis either (ugh!).

Ritalin makes me hungry, partly due to improved mood and improved brain activity, to study, read, and feed my Brain.
