1) is it harmful to engage in intense athletic activity whilst on adderall? if it is, is it harmful because you can drop dead right then and there or because of something it does to your body over time?
2) how stupid is it to drink an energy drink after taking 50mg of adderall? what about if you do that and then engage in athletic activity?
1) I assume that adderall increases your heart rate, because it does for me. I have never exercised on it, but I've definitely had some physically demanding sex after taking it that got my heart rate up to scary levels. One time I thought I was having a heart attack. Intense pain in my chest and a weird numbness/disconnected feeling in my limbs/extremities. My vision also went splotchy. I think that was a result of not drinking any water though because it's only happened once.
2) It isn't stupid and you definitely tweak extremely hard for a brief period of time, but once the caffeine wears off you definitely feel less focused/more spacey. I read once on some drug forum (so idk if it's true or not and haven't bothered to try and verify it) that caffeine actually interferes with the body's ability to metabolize the amphetamines
