Adderall effects our bodies by releasing adrenaline (epinephrine) and noradrenaline (norepinephrine). Heart rate and blood pressure goes up, glucose (fuel) is released from stores into cells. Lung passageways dilate to meet the greater demand for more fuel burning oxygen and for carrying off more carbon dioxide exhaust. You got to pump the bellows harder to fill that greater lung capacity. The transition periods - before you feel Adderall kicking in and at 7 hours when Adderall kicks out - might possibly be the cause of your chest tightness/slightly harder breathing sensation. If most of you turned purple, that be a cause for concern. Just your hands turning purple with orange red spots? Nuttin to worry about but indeed WEIRD. You might consider changing your hair style to purple/red/orange spikes to match.

Ok, seriously, adrenaline causes the blood vessels in our extremities (like hands) to constrict. During those same transition periods, your hands may be getting insufficient O2. Slightly purple means slightly not enough means don't worry, be happy. Hmn, hair style change may not be a bad idea afterall.


Almost forgot: I ain't no doctor. Since your real doctor clumps you under panic, I will too, sort of. Anxiety is a common Adderall side effect especially for those of us prone to anxiety/panic disorders. Chest tightness is too. I have not heard about Weird Hand Syndrome before. Let's put WHS under not too common Adderall side effect. If it really, really, really causes you concern, talk to doc about Vyvanse. Vyvanse has less action on norepi than Adderall. Might be your cure for WHS. Clonidine or guanfacine (Intuniv) might help too. Both are good for countering stimulant side effects but by entirely different method of action. You really, really, really need a real doctor for medication management. Consider my ramble as leads for you and your doctor to consider.
