I think he abuses it. You can tell when he isn't on it, he's always tired and not fun to be around. please help me understand why this is. thanks
Adderall releases norepinephrine (in smaller pleasureable amounts) and dopamine (reward system for the brain, this is bad because dopamine release makes it more likely he will use the med! -dopamine theory in addiction) Adderal is an amphetamine (weaker version of methamphetamine in a sense) and is there for a stimulent. It will give the user a bunch of energy, possibly cause sweating, contracted puples, higher blood presure, fast heart rate, and anything else thats related to stimulent use/sympathetic nervous system engagement (this includes lack of appitite caused by basicly the digestive system shutting down)... lack of amphetamines can make people irritable without a doubt also lack of it may cause him to seek drug with like stimulent effects including meth, coke, other add meds, and others im sure i just cant think of them.
