I take 100 mg of Adderall XR per day. I recently read a comment by Gayl Hamilton, MD. On May 19, 2014, she indicated that Adderall attenuated her athletic physique and caused permanent changes in the dopamine system of her brain. She also suggests that Adderall caused mitochondrial damage. In her words, the drug “contributes to further damage to both the mitochondria and the adrenal axis.” Her comments were posted on Healthrising.org.

Is this true? Should I switch medications or reduce my dosage or compliment it with something else? Are there diets or supplements that one should take with Adderall XR?
