Adderall, a controlled substance (Schedule II), has a legitimate medical purpose, but it is very likely to be abused. Because Adderall is a Schedule II controlled substance, there are special rules for the medication. For example, Adderall prescriptions must be written in "hard copy" form, meaning they cannot be phoned or faxed to a pharmacy.
Adderall (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine) and Adderall XR (amphetamine-dextroamphetamine extended release) are prescription medications that are classified as controlled substances. Controlled substances are medications or drugs that are very habit-forming or are very likely to be abused. Certain prescription medications and most illegal street drugs are controlled substances. There are special rules for medications that are controlled substances. Also, there are five different groups (or "schedules") of controlled substances. Each schedule has its own specific rules.
Adderall, along with most other stimulants, is a Schedule II controlled substance.
