It's true. I really need adderall but I don't think I can sacrifice that.

I've done some research and I haven't found too much in terms of scholarly articles. If you are on it and you want to know, please research and post what you find or summarize it.

If I really need to end up taking it, I will take it will l-arginine in hopes of counteracting the constriction of veins/blood vessels. I don't know how much this will help though.

It's not just while you are on it... it can be PERMANENT, which is what bothers me.

It's vasoconstriction, something all stimulants do to an extent. Constricted blood vessels = less blood flow. It's not permanent and it won't change erect size. Worst case is temporary ED, but that shouldn't happen to most people at therapeutic doses. There's nothing to worry about.

No... I'm not trolling. It's a fact that it causes it temporarily. But I know people who said it has caused permanent decreases in length for them. Especially at higher doses (around 25-30mg).

I'm not asking whether this is true or not, because I know it is (well in the case of permanent shrinkage I'll say I'm 99% sure). I'm asking people who take adderall and are also worried about this to help me do some research. And maybe find possible solutions (arginine?)

This is from memory but supposedly the shrinkage of the smaller blood vessels in the organ causes no blood to be able to pass through them so eventually they die.

I can't tell.. are you trolling?
^What I was talking about above:

Yes, Adderall does indeed shrink the penis and has been well documented. Specifically. Adderall causes a break down of elastin and a shortening of the ligament that the base of the penis is attached. The combined effects shortened the penis in both its flacid and erect states. In addtion, there is evidence that signaling cascades may be initiated in the smooth muscle cells of the penis via a nitric oxide pathway that induces apoptosis or cell death in the penile tissue, thus physically reducing the actuall mass of the penis itself. The effects can be permanent as well. Incidentally, nicotine appears to illicit the same effects, especially on elastin.

i took some dex earlier and i got dat cold shower penis, good thing i don't use this stuff every day.
if i ask my doc im sure he'll say it won't happen and theres no legit source/study done to prove it.

then again drug companies probably have the power to not let that happen.
i guess taking breaks would stop it from happening?

If you're recreationally abusing it, then you deserve it.


Boom!
