Spider Veins and Adderall

Spider veins can be caused by a number of different factors. These unsightly blemishes – which are also known as varicose veins – can be brought on by being on your feet too much, pregnancy, genetic factors and many other things. One of the most troublesome things that can cause spider veins is the drug Adderall. Adderall is a drug that is usually taken to control ADD, or Attention Deficit Disorder. Children are the people who are most commonly prescribed Adderall.

Adderall is believed to cause spider veins because it increases blood pressure, among other things. When blood pressure rises – and stays elevated for long periods of time – the veins in the body become compromised. Weakened veins are very susceptible to turning into spider veins, which then start covering the legs in a very unattractive series of purple, unattractive veins. They’re called spider veins because they take on spider web kind of pattern. If you’ve ever taken Adderall, you might have an elevated risk of developing spider veins.

What Are Spider Veins

Whether you’ve taken Adderall or not, it is important to have a basic understanding of what spider veins actually are. Spider veins – or varicose veins – are unsightly, purplish colored veins that form just below the surface of the skin, usually on the legs. They are very apparent and can give the legs a horribly disfigured appearance. In some people, spider veins only happen in a small, concentrated area; in others, they spread all over the legs.

Spider veins happen when circulation becomes inefficient. The valves and walls of the veins become weakened due to this inefficient circulation; in response, blood pools up and creates spider veins. Adderall has been shown to raise blood pressure which can cause inefficient circulation. There is no clear warning about spider veins on Adderall packaging, but there appears to be a link and additional research is being conducted.

Does Adderall Cause Spider Veins?

Although no direct warnings about spider veins are included with supplies of Adderall, enough people have reported the problem to raise concerns. After all, Adderall does bring on many undesirable side effects – especially when it comes to the circulatory system. Since so many parts of the circulatory system can become compromised when taking Adderall, it isn’t too much of a leap to think that Adderall might cause spider veins. In any case, plenty of people have noticed a correlation.

Some people who have never had any trouble with spider veins before suddenly see crop up when they begin taking Adderall. Women and older people are the most likely to develop spider veins, yet plenty of young people who take Adderall seem to develop this unattractive condition as well. Either way, it’s clear that Adderall can trigger some very serious side effects and that it should be used with caution by people regardless of age.

Spider Vein Treatment Options

One of the most common treatments for spider veins is unpleasant because it is so invasive. It is called sclerotherapy and it involves injecting chemicals into the veins to seal them shut and prevent spider veins. People who take Adderall might be advised to undergo sclerotherapy upon developing spider veins, but the vast majority are sure to feel that the procedure is simply too painful and unpleasant. Many who have taken Adderall and developed spider veins choose to seek alternative treatment options.

Instead of painful sclerotherapy, herbal treatments are the best option for taking care of spider veins. Taking supplements with ingredients like hesperidin, butchers bloom extract and diosmin is one of the safest, easiest and most pain-free ways to manage spider veins. If you take Adderall, especially, you should consider taking those supplements as a preventive measure. With any luck, the Adderall won’t cause spider veins; if you already have spider veins, taking herbal supplements can help keep you from developing even more of them in the future.
