Adderall Abuse - Clearfork Academy

Adderall abuse is the use of the prescription medication for non-medical purposes. Given the energizing properties of the prescription stimulant, the drug is often abused by users, especially students. Therefore, Adderall abuse is common among young people because the drug is widely prescribed.

What is Adderall Abuse?

Adderall abuse is the misuse of a prescription drug intended to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. Adderall is a brand name for the chemical combination of two central nervous system stimulants: amphetamine and dextroamphetamine. The drug is available as a tablet and as an extended-release capsule (Adderall XR).

When it comes to abuse, snorting Adderall is a preferred mode of administration. Tablets are dissolved in water to be injected or crushed for snorting Adderall. Both high school and college students often abuse Adderall to help them stay awake and study longer.

Initial Adderall side effects include nervousness, dry mouth, and loss of appetite. Signs of Adderall abuse include being overly talkative, secretive behavior, and runny noses from snorting Adderall. Adderall misuse negatively disrupts brain activity, often resulting in the onset of depression. Consequently, Adderall addiction can lead to suicidal impulses. Moreover, potential Adderall side effects also include psychosis, seizures, and coronary problems.
