Adderall contains a combination of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine and are central nervous system stimulants that affect chemicals in the brain and nerves that contribute to hyperactivity and impulse control.
Adderall is used to treat narcolepsy (day time sleepiness) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Adderall will affect people differently depending on what it is being taken for.
In patients who suffer from ADHD it is seems to be an effective way to keep thoughts organized, stay on task, concentrate and accomplish things.
In patients who do not have a specific medical need it tends to have a classic amphetamine reaction. They are more likely to experience a speedy effect, tend towards compulsive organization and will have difficulty sleeping. Many people find the 'speedy' effect recreationally desirable, sometimes as a way to stay up and to allow for more energy.
Adderall is only available on a prescription and because of some its effects has a high level of abuse.
Here is a link to comments from people who have taken Adderall.
