Weight Gain/Body Image in General Discussion Posted January 7 · Report post Almost ten years post -adderall, my GI system has finally recovered. There are still a few foods that give me heartburn so I avoid them. Some kinds of bread, some kinds of cookies (and eating too many of them) and milk still don't agree with me, especially near bed time as they ness with my sleep. It is much, much better than five years ago. For the first five years of my recovery, I was convinced that I had permanently damaged my GI system. Oddly enough, my body weight has stabilized at what it was when I quit, although I now have more muscle where there used to be fat, due to regular yoga practice and / or workouts.
