Weight Loss and Hypersensitivity

Hey loves, Melanie here.

I am 21 years old. I was diagnosed at 17, and started on Adderall. Problem was, I was not diagnosed with Hypersensitivity until very recently. So I’ve had to switch drugs around a lot because despite how great some of them worked, the side effects were making me very underweight or sick.

Does anyone else with hypersensitivity and ADD have any suggestions diet-wise? My hypersensitivity makes me extremely picky.


How did you get diagnosed with hypersensitivity? I’m curious because as much as I love the Adderall, my appetite is completely whacked, and there are certain foods that I used to love (or tolerate) that actually make me retch now. I have lost a ton of weight, and the only things I can manage to make myself eat during the day are sweet things with boring textures. After reading your post, I’m wondering if it might be a hypersensitivity thing.
