What is Adderall?
Adderall is a pharmaceutical psychostimulant combination drug of phenethylamine and amphetamine chemical classes or salts. The medication is typically obtained through a prescription for treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder(ADHD) or narcolepsy. The drug works by increasing the amount of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain to help focus energy and concentration on a higher level than normal. Adderall is a Schedule II drug and is considered to have a high potential for misuse and a high dependence probability.
Leading Causes of Adderall Addiction
As a recreational drug, Adderall may be abused for its stimulant and euphoric properties similar to cocaine and other amphetamines. As a performance enhancing drug, Adderall has become known as a study drug and is used as for academic advantages by college students to stay awake or focus during critical exam times and for writing research papers. The drug has increasingly become more available because it can be easily sold without detection.
Why Quit Adderall?
Continued use or abuse may cause overdose or other potentially dangerous, and sometimes fatal, side effects such as heart failure, stroke, hallucinations, and seizures. Misuse and abuse of Adderall affects the user both physically and psychologically with intense cravings that cause uncontrollable behaviors. The addict may develop restlessness, insomnia, paranoia, headaches, irritability, anxiety and even hallucinations. Increased heart rate, blood pressure, and body temperature can be dangerous and possibly fatal side effects. Many other negative effects can be developed and therefore, require that this medication only be used when and as prescribed by a licensed physician.
