Excessive hunger. When does it go away? (8 days clean)

4 posts in this topic

I am 8 days clean from adderall, and i am definitely experiencing the bouts of excessive, raging hunger and a desire to eat everything in site. For most of the 8-year period that i was using adderall, it never really occurred to me that it has caused these extreme regulations in my appetite when I would take the weekends off of the drug (I would take it M-F, and off Sat./Sunday). I always thought I had an embarrassingly, abnormally large appetite and that's just how i was. But only in the past year or so have I started realizing come every Friday, when I am at the end of a weeklong adderall binge, that my appetite starts feeling out of control on those nights and continues throughout the weekend when I'm off the drug. Now I am free from the poison and getting back in touch with my true self and true hunger cues. I find myself wondering, when will my appetite return to normal?

I’m on day 80 and I still have a ravenous appetite. It really sucks.

You need to make some sort of nutrition plan. I think going keto with intermittent fasting is the easiest it suppresses hungar by adding more fats to your diet. Although I’m not on it now helped me out a lot when I first got off this stuff. You can’t expect your big appetite will just go away. This is why so many skinny trophy wife soccer moms love adderall it takes little effort to stay thin while on it.

Thanks for your note. That is exactly what I do (IF), and i would say 60-75% of the week I am good. But then there are 2-3 days per week where my appetite is noticeably more pronounced. I guess i just need to keep chugging along and be grateful for the good days knowing more good days are in my future.
