It is not against the law to drive while under the influence of prescribed Adderall, provided it has not been abused.

Adderall, an amphetamine and central nervous system stimulant, should have a sticker on the bottle saying "Do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you know how this medication will affect you" or something similar.

Amphetamines have significant side effects that are dangerous while operating a vehicle or other potentially dangerous machinery. Adderall can cause dizziness in a large number of people - but you may know this does not last very long for you.

If you know this then, for safety, if you were wanting to drive it would be legally acceptable to wait until the dizziness subsides before taking the wheel.
