What Is Adderall?
Adderall is a prescription drug that is commonly used and prescribed to tread attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children and students that exhibit signs of hyperactivity and an inability to focus. Adderall is an amphetamine and is classified as a stimulant. When properly used, it helps you better be able to focus your attention, can increase your ability to pay attention and can control behavioral problems in hyperactive children.
Common Illegal Uses Of Adderall
All of Adderall’s benefits – especially its ability to help focus your attention and stay alert longer – make it a common illegal drug on college campuses. Students often use Adderall as a study drug because it helps them stay focused and attentive while writing papers or studying for exams. Adderall is also used to improve memory. However, any use of a controlled substance or prescription drug without a prescription makes it illegal for common usage.
Signs Of Adderall Addiction
Teens and young adults can easily become addicted to Adderall, especially if it is being used without a doctor’s approval and prescription. Symptoms can include physical and psychological symptoms, such as:
- Excessive talking and racing thoughts
- Panic, anxiety and excessive nervousness
- Feelings of grandeur and invincibility
Another sign that someone has an Adderall addiction is if they modify Adderall’s pill format by crushing it to make it easy to snort, speeding up the drug’s effectiveness. Someone who becomes obsessed about finding the drug and worried about the idea of not having it available can also be a sign of addiction.
