One side effect to Methylphenidate is it can supress your appetite. I have had appetite ishues before but it was before i was taking a stimulant. Texture and look, along with smell and ofcorse taste all factor, to say im picky is an undstatment because what i can handle changes so i can like it one day and not the next, that would be on the Aspburgers (apparently). Back to the stimulant. I never had many issues before. Actually i will get in a state where I don't want to eat. Not because I mentally say no but physically. I'll be hungry, and when i start to eat i just cant. Its odd. I suddenly feel stuffed and I maybe only managed to force my self to eat a small sample, if that. If force my self to do more id thow up. (I know i have some sort of eating disorder but I don't think i fit anorexia unless this is all souly the medication and the Aspburgers) instead of calories i stress more for the higer fatty stuff and avoid the a "survival state" but just barely because i can go a few days without even thinking to eat. I know its bad but id like my bmi to be 16.0 at most. I get spikes whee i loose alot of waighed in short amount of time. 11 days to 3 weeks i lost 50. Im being taken off my stimulate temporarily to see if that would help me start helping. And im still trying to loose even though my bmi is 23.1 i don't think my "goal" is acceptable so atleast 19 or 20 would be a cut off..

Im having issues again... I binged one dayband have refused to eat for 2 days since....

I am taking Concerta and have anorexia too. My advice is to take it slow. Eat one bite at a time.

ensure drinks are a good way to get the proper nutrients if it is hard to eat.

As above said, I'm pretty sure you can get supplemented drinks or milkshakes which will make sure you get the nutrients you need.
