Affair on aderall

5 posts in this topic

Wife was on aderall for 6 months. She changed so much on the meds. She ended up in an affair during the time on aderall. She doesnt have add/adhd. She took to lose weight. I never agreed with her taking it but just kept quiet until the affair happened. She is no longer on aderall and it's almost like while on it there was a split personality. She is 36 and never taken any drugs in her life.

hi @Marty

so sorry to hear about this. hopefully there is still time to save your marriage. abusing Adderall can very much be a split personality type experience. for me it always felt like Jekyll and Hyde - no matter how rational you are when sober, you turn into a completely different person while high. you may find now that she is off Adderall, she can barely explain why she did the things she did.

i wish you both the best of luck, hang in there!

@Marty Sorry to read about your troubles with adderall and your marriage. I agree with @sleepystupid in that it almost gives you a split personality while high. Mine was more so “I don’t give a f*ck” while high but I definitely knew right from wrong, even when cracked out. Hopefully things will get better for you both.

It is very hard for her to explain. We both have seeked therapy and our marriage has in a way been revived from this sh@tty situation. She was very naive to the fact that a medication could cause such psychological change. I know it's not solely aderall that caused it, but any underlying issues we may have were hyper focused on and upset her more! This medication caused her to have more anger and agitation towards me that really wasnt that bad. For first week or so off aderall she would mention that she was lost and confused. She is so much happier off the medication and now can notice the changes it caused. I dont throw what she did in her face as bad as it hurt. It hurts her bad enough that she did what she did and hopefully can one day forgive herself. I love her and will not leave her side. Thank you all for the support. This site has helped me understand how dangerous aderall can be how it varies from person to person.  Thank yall so much!
