Does anyone know if Adderrall (extended release version) has any negative impacts with regard to weight lifting?
I'll probably be taking it 3-5 days a week depending on what classes I have. Dose is starting in the 20mg range but may possibly increase to 25mg (once per day in the morning). I've heard rumors of Adderrall leading to weight loss, and that would be the worst thing possible for me at the moment... I'm struggling to put on weight but still making headway nonetheless.
The only supplements I take are Maximus and fish oil so I'm not really concerned about it interacting with anything else atm.
And yes, it's prescribed to me, so no need for lectures about drug use
It leads to weightloss because it hinders appetite, and slightly boosts your metabolism. I've been on adderall since I was 19 (I'm 24 now). I get hungry even when I take it, just not as often. Just remind yourself to eat and you'll be fine.
FYI: At my highest intake (during school) I was on 25mg XR along with 10mg instant release that I would take in the afternoon. I bulked even when I was putting 35-40mg into my body/day.
Bench: 45 lbs Bench: 235 lbs
Squat: 95 lbs Squat: 285 lbs
Deadlift: 100 lbs Deadlift: 330 lbs
It's great for cutting though
For reference, I typically only take 10mg/day, and add a second 10mg if I'm really distracted.

It is certainly going to curb your appetite. Take it as prescribed and you will be fine.
