Does the ADHD medicines Addrell XR make bruising happen easier?

ADHD is usually noticed when children begin school or even among preschoolers. Children who are diagnosed with ADHD behave in an uncontrolled manner and are unable concentrate on anything.  Adderall is a medication that is made up of different amphetamine salts, prescribed for people suffering from Attention Deficiency Hyperactivity Disorder. This medication helps patients of ADHD control their hyperactive nature and helps them develop longer attention spans. Adderall XR is another form of this same mediation. Adderall XR is long acting and is usually prescribed only once a day since the effects of this medication last up to twelve hours.     Most physicians prescribe this medication for children above three years of age.

Like any other medication Adderall XR has several side effects, which are well documented.  Regular use of this medication results in a variety of side effects like angioedema, anaphylaxis. Adderall XR also results in the development of a variety of skin conditions. Uritacaria is a condition of the skin, usually caused by an allergic reaction, that results in the appearance of red welts on the skin. Angioedema is another skin condition where there is a swelling beneath the skin. As you can see, these are all side effects that target the skin of the patient. Excessive bruising, though not documented as a side effect of t his medication, is possibly another such side effect. You should consult your doctor about this and seek information about the best way to handle these side effects.
