Treating an Adderall Addiction

Why this resource is helpful:

Quoted From:

"Adderall is a prescription medication that"s classified as a stimulant drug. Adderall, which is a brand name, is composed of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine. This drug has legitimate medical uses and is effective in the treatment of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy.
People with ADHD can struggle with following through on projects or focusing their attention on one thing for a period of time. Adderall can help stimulate their focus and enable them to engage in and complete tasks more effectively.
Similarly, those with narcolepsy often feel overwhelmingly drowsy during the day. People with narcolepsy have difficulty controlling proper sleep-wake cycles, and Adderall is one effective treatment for this condition. By reducing the amount of drowsiness felt during the day, those with narcolepsy can get through their day better and are less affected by sudden attacks of sleep.
Adderall is a legitimate and effective treatment for these conditions, but all too often the drug is misused for a number of reasons.
Adderall is available by prescription only and is often prescribed to both adults and children. Because of its high potential for misuse and addiction, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has classified it as a Schedule II stimulant. Because of the way Adderall can affect the chemistry of the brain, it can be very difficult for a person to quit using Adderall on their own.
