Adderall is a prescription drug that, while beneficial for certain conditions, is still widely abused throughout the globe, especially by students. While it is prescribed for those with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), may people abuse it due to the psychoactive effects of the drug.
What is Adderall?
Adderall, with generic name Dextroamphetamine Sulf-Saccharate/Amphetamine Sulf-Saccharate., is a combination of two stimulants (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine). It is a drug created to increase the attention and concentration as well as control behavior of patients with ADHD. It does this by balancing the neurotransmitters in the brain so that users will be focused.
Unfortunately, Adderall is widely abused particularly by students who take the drug so that they can study well and focus in school. Some also take Adderall to lose weight or in parties, so users can drink and dance without easily getting tired.
Effects of Adderall
Adderall is like meth, as it causes users to not just focus but also stay awake, as well as experience feelings of euphoria. It can also cause people to lose weight. Here are other effects of Adderall:
- improved mental alertness
- suppressed appetite
- increased libido
- laser focus
Adderall’s Potential for Abuse
Because of these effects, Adderall has an increased potential for abuse. People can also easily get addicted to the drug due to the feel-good sensations it brings. What they don’t know is that like other abused drugs, there are negative side effects that include:
- unhealthy weight loss
- cardiac problem risk
Long-term use can also bring about paranoia, hostility, depression, and of course, addiction.
Adderall is much like meth. In fact, many specialists and experts argue that they are similar. However, only meth is branded as dangerous and therefore illicit. If not treated, Adderall addiction can lead to many problems that can turn out to also be life-threatening.
