Why do you have a problem from people enjoying the side effect of their meds? People SUFFER everyday from negative side effects, they can be divesting in some cases. If someone has positive effect, GOOD FOR THEM...you sound jealous.
Ive been on Adderal for about 6 months, there is no change in my sex drive but Im happy for the ones who have an increase, more power to them!

I just started taking adderall. I am female and 47. My doc gave me liberty to go from 1-4 10 mg xr pills and see how I feel at each dose after 4 days on each one to level out. I am amazed that I made it this far in life wthout this diagnosis but after failing all the tests with magnitude, I am ADHD.

First, I noted that I can finally focus and get massive amounts of detailed work done and complete a lot of tasks that I would normally have drowned in for months. I can remember things finally! I can memorize choreography which before adderall I was ready to change occupations over but the adderall works! I am so happy! However, the bad thing is that I have become so hypersexual that if I give in to my arousal and close the door to my office to masturbate, I will literally miss meetings and never come out for the next three hours. I have varying degrees of orgasm - the teasers are the ones that obsess me to keep working at it and seriously intense massive heavens opened up orgasms that make me want to scream and egg me on to keep doing that again until I am sweating like I'm in a freaking sauna.

When I take the morning dose, I feel aroused after about 45 minutes but if I start working on stuff I need to do I can put it out of my mind a bit. By 2:30 in the afternoon when I'm sitting at my computer squirming in my chair - if I give in and start masturbating I am at it for 3-4 hours literally. No work gets done, no phone calls get returned - nothing but mad masturbation. I can definately say that I am focused but on the wrong thing rather than work again. It is so disturbing that my secretary will call me on the intercom because I have a phone call and I won't pick up because I think I can finish orgasming - I am OCD for orgasms - nobody ever holds on for that long.

The other thing is I am getting MASSIVE masturbation headaches and minor hearing loss or ringing in my ears.

10 mg xr didn't really do anything to help focus or have any real sexual effect. 20 mg xr great initial focus then big sexual arousal effect. 30 mg xr - totally insane arousal and can't do anything else and can't have an orgasm. Pulling my hair out - exhusted my husband on and off for 5 hours and still no orgasm for me....total frustration - I think I hurt myself masturbating and my hand is sore (not kidding) I may be extreme but I need to know if anyone else is experiencing this because it is hard to discuss this with my male doctor. I already don't want to give up the positive effect of the focus and geting the work done that I am getting done but....damn!

I never went up to 40mg xr to find out what would happen next. So the minimum that gives me the focus I need is 20 mg xr - it is really amazing but with the hypersexuality....I become the "masturbation queen" .....WHAT SHOULD I DO? Stay on it and resist masturbating or change meds? Anyone have anything like this happen? My husband thinks this is hilarious - for me - not so funny.

IMO, whether it is Adderall or life in general, the more a woman either masturbates or has sex, the more she wants it...This is very true as she is ages...Her inner sexual parts become very alive...By masturbating and the friction of the male penis awakening her, this has created the erotic passion that many women have been missing all their life...It may not be the drug, but the releasing of a part of her mind through the drug, that allowed her to find this new sensual happiness...The more she keeps it up, the more she wants it...However, she must then learn to control this new part of herself...Keep her body sexually stimulated to just the right degree...Not overdo this nor stop for fear that she will become over sexed...Women say that this is the drug, but I disagree...I believe it is the drug to the point of releasing the woman inside of them...The "hot babe" that has been hidden....You still take the drug, but chances are that if you stop the drug that you will not stop yourself....That is unless you want to....

Especially eHealthy
The latest research in female arousal disorder (FAD) has shown that many women get aroused physically but it never registers in their brains. You will see a sexy man, get wet and all swollen but not know about it. Drugs like Adderall are now being studied to help with this problem. They seem to connect the genitals and the brain so that your brain realize what your genitals are doing and hence you now get turned on mentally as well as physically. You also know that you are turned on. I suppose it focuses the brain better.

(How does scientist know this? They place an instrument in the vagina to measure heat, blood flow and arousal fluid. Then they show some boring and sexually stimulating video to the women. The women also records how sexually aroused they feel during this. Women with arousal disorder get as physically turned on as the other women but they never record that hey feel aroused. Adderall changes all this for some of these women.)

I have to say that I have always been very sexual....The adderall had made me sexually insane that's the problem. I don't know if the chemistry of the medications I take is causing me to go into over drive but this is not a matter of my sexual awakening. I have always had a high sex drive anyway. I am comfortable wiht myself and having sex with my partner and alone for that matter. Adderall has me crazy for sex. I am wondering if it interacts with Welbutrin that I'm taking but I tried stopping the webutrin and only taking the adderall and it was the same highly sexual focus. I know when I have been aroused in the past - trust me this is no matter of latent discovery on my part.

I, too, have always been very sexual...My sexuality was so high that I turned my husband around and off Viagra...I had no plans...I just knew how...I had no drug to do this, just life...Being comfortable with yourself and accepting the God given favors of womanhood can help you reach plateaus that we never knew possible....However, acknowledging these gifts that we have found and keeping them in the proper perspective must be the rule of this game of love....I found mine...and guard them well...

Take care,
Caroline

When a drug like this one in question has affected anyone to a point of their sexuality being a problem in their life, then they should get away from it...What I was trying to say in my post was that the person must be controlled...If the drug is doing it, stop taking it....If the person becomes sexually uncontrolled, than learn to control it...Stop thinking that they can't stop masturbating...Stop wanting sex all the time.....Control the woman within themselves that they have let loose...Please understand that in my post that I was not bragging....I was speaking of life...When this power that a woman may find surfaces, it must be corralled...

Now I, too, am out of here...

Wow that is awesome, I thought I was the only one feeling this way... My orgasms last so much longer and feel much more intense and more frequent... Yay!! Adderall!!! I have been on an anti-depressant for years which killed my sex drive, thank God I asked my doctor about it... it's fantastic!! I'm back to myself again, the fire is definitely back on!!

Too high a sex drive!
I was recently prescribed adderall and at first I didn't feel any increase in my sex drive until today. I frantically searched around to see if this was common only to find out that the exact opposite usually happens. I'm happy to see it is happening to other people because I was getting a bit worried! I am in sexual overdrive though and it hard to concentrate on anything else. I'm sure my boyfriend will love it. Just wish I could write this damn paper instead of focusing on sex...

Affair with Adderall
I can't believe I am reading this and just now putting together what is going on in my life. I had no idea that the adderall I've been taking for 2 years may have caused me to become unsatisfied by my husband of 13 years. He's the only man I've had intercourse with my entire life until recently when I hooked up with a single man a few years younger than me and began a mostly sexual relationship. I certainly am not placing blame on the drug as I am responsible for my own actions. I just never made a connection until reading theses posts that I may have been affected by the drug in a way I never realized. I first began watching porn, then came the toys, and now 'the other man'. I don't feel I can give up adderall because all I want to do is lay around or sleep without it and I get nothing done. Wow, I'm in a mess....

Sudden increased female libido-Adderall induced?
Im so glad I found this forum. I too am taking Adderall. Im 53 y.o. female and I havent had a period in over a year so I thought this was something to do with menopause. Im so horny I feel like Im going to loose my mind. Ive been married for 20 years and my husband has a little erectile dysfunction. he's never in the mood and I cant get enough. I masterbate all the time. All I think about is getting laid. I have suffered with ADD all my life and was finally correctly diagnosed with it as an adult. The Adderall inhances my quality of life for so many daily functions but this libido a go go is actually making me think about getting a young boy friend on the side. I feel confident it is the meds and will try not to wreck my marriage over this but DAMN, i need some relief.

You are one of many of us older women in life that have found this "fountain of youth"....Sometimes a magic pill can become a "magic pill" because it awakens a new part of you that has never surfaced before...Makes you wonder where you were all your life....Or else takes you back to all your yesterday's and you find that age is a number only....Take your husband along for the trip....Stimulate him and make him feel young....You both will do just fine....Take care...

If you are getting this kind of a reaction from it, I don't think you should be taking it...The thing is that if it is messing with your mind, it could affect with your sex life...You have to be relaxed for great sex and this doesn't seem like the case with you on this drug...I can't help you on this as I have never used it...Take care..

Yes, Adderall is a stimulant drug prescribed for ADD or ADHD, BUT.... that is not the only thing a Dr. will give it to a patient for. I have had many Dr's tell me that they prescribe it for people taking an antidepressant who a are experiencing sexual dysfunction as a side effect. What that means is, the medical community knows that it can increase sexual function. That said, I have been on Adderall is iit's various forms for 15 years, and I have not had that side effect. I am going to go out on a limb and say if you really need the drug to balance the chemicals in your brain then you probably won't have that side effect. However, if you find you really are ADD/or ADHD, and Adderall still increases your sex drive, then enjoy it.
