Adderall and Cushings

Question

Guest Jamie C.

Hello,

I was recently diagnosed by the NIH with Cushings and Adrenal hyperplasia due to a tumor in my adrenals.  I have taken Adderall for a few years now for what I thought was ADD.  Can Adderall increase cortisol levels since it is a stimulant?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, Jamie - I've read that Adderall can increase cortisol levels but I think that the adrenal hyperplasia is an issue apart from the cortisol increase.

Will NIH be doing surgery on your adrenal glands?

I just wanted to say hello. You are in such good hands at the NIH. I too, had surgery there and they saved my life. I hope things are going well for you.
