so I have been losing weight but not intentionally, I just really have no appetite & if I try to make myself eat I feel nauseated...well I do need to lose weight but I know this is not a good way for it to be happening...is it super horrible though?

The lack of nutrients (vitamins/protein/calcium/etc) can make your hair fall out, it can cause some degeneration to your teeth over time...etc.
I know you're not intentionally doing it but when you starve yourself your body starts eating your muscle and stores the fat.

Meh I have too much hair right now...I actually need to get it thinned out lol. I mean this has happened before because of this medicine I take for my ADD (they all do it to me)..my hair hasn't ever fallen out all crazy though....can't I just take some vitamins though & be cool?

Vitamins on an empty stomach could cause issues with exactly how much you're absorbing. When there is nothing but bile (Stomach acid) in your stomach the pill will be dissolved almost immediately so you'll absorb the vitamins faster.
I would at least try to take in some calories. Your body typically needs 1200 calories minimum a day just to keep it out of starvation mode.

I eat when I do get hungry but not much....what if I eat & then take the vitamins?

We all have days like that. I had a handful of dry cereal and about a cup of chili. But I also drank some calories (fruit juice) just to make sure my body wont enter starvation mode.
Even if you don't want to eat a lot I would at least try to intake some protein throughout the day.

Eating before taking vitamins would be best! It would help with how fast you'd absorb everything. Not to mention its better on your stomach lining. Take it from a girl with a gastric ulcer from years of taking asprin on an empty stomach.

It has been like this every day for the past week or so...I have lost 10 pounds already 0.o I do drink about a can or 2 of soda during the day though...

Caffeine is a natural appetite suppressant too. I don't know if you're drinking caffeinated soda but it could be a big reason on why you're not hungry.

yea, I am pretty sure I have an ulcer from taking too much motrin too smh..I take motrin every day pretty much for the past few months...I just feel weak in my stomach,sometimes I get a burning feeling too and get *tmi* diarrhea a lot..I am seeing a GI doctor for that though. How did your ulcer feel?

Always burning!! It caused a lot of reflux too which (somehow...idk how) caused gallbladder issues...yeah... My body is broken lol. After I got my gallbladder out I don't have the burning as bad anymore but I still get the really bad diarrhea if I eat something that pisses it off. (fatty/spicy/heavy cream)



Also the ADD medication could also be causing a lot of appetite suppression. As long as you're getting what your body needs I wouldn't be worried about not eating a lot. Just be sure you're eating enough.

i'd just say when you do eat- eat something healthy.
a taco 'n pop tart plus not eating is not great.
