What is Adderall?

Adderall contains a combination of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine, which are central nervous system stimulants that affect chemicals in the brain.

Adderall is used to treat narcolepsy and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Studies have found Adderall does not enhance learning or thinking ability when taken by people who do not actually have ADHD. Also, research has shown that students who misuse Adderall show lower GPAs in high school and college.

Misuse of Adderall can cause dependence.

Get EMERGENCY MEDICAL HELP if you have signs of an allergic reaction to Adderall : hives, difficulty breathing; swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat.
