Make an appointment with a psychiatrist. Psychiatrists are mental health professionals who have the ability to prescribe medication. Keep in mind that psychologists cannot prescribe medication. During your first session, your doctor will ask you why you scheduled the appointment. Tell him or her about your symptoms, how often they occur, and how long you have noticed them. He or she will then ask several follow up questions to help make a diagnosis

Many people that take Adderall may notice that the drug causes them to lose weight as well as a lower BMI (body mass index). This is due to the fact that Adderall increases the level of the stimulatory neurotransmitter “dopamine” in the brain. This is a neurotransmitter that is involved in motivation, movement, and satisfaction.
