My 7-year old son had the same problem with weight loss since being on Adderall XR. There are two medications that can help (at least they did for my son).
1. Periactin
Periactin is an Antihistamine, which helps my son not only with his allergies, but also increases his appetite. This medication is also prescribed to patients who suffer from anorexia.
2. Remeron
Remeron is an antidepressant
My son was on Remeron and he gained weight immediately and had no side effects. Since we switched to Periactin due to his allergy problem, I discontinued the Remeron, since he also gained weight with Periactin. My son is also an extremely picky eater. He still does not eat much during the day, but when his Adderall XR wears off, he eats much more than without periactin.
