I took adderall for adhd for several years which I think works on stimulating dopamine in your brain. Now I don't take it as often anymore but I am wondering if those dopamine spikes had lasting effects on my brain?

The brain

is very plastic. If you want to read an interesting book on this subject, have a look at Doidge's The Brain That changes Itself.

Most of the book is examples of remarkable brain plasticity. Only one chapter is about sex. Excerpts from that, and a video of Doidge are here:

In other words, be optimistic that your balance can continue to improve, regardless of the past.
