Description and Use
Adderall is the result of placing amphetamines with dextroamphetamine and is typically used to treat narcolepsy and ADHD, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. It is used to treat such disorders but is not a cure, and does carry various side effects if abused or taken without a doctor’s consent. Adderall is more often seen in pill form, round pink tabs that are easy to swallow with liquid. Each pill is 30mg of Adderall, and the recommended maximum dosage is around 40mg for children and 70mg for adults. The actual dosage can vary between individuals, as the starting dosage for children is recommended as 2.5mg a day for children under 6 years of age and 5mg for children over six. Adults are generally instructed to start out taking from 5 to 60mg a day depending on the need.
Additionally, Adderall xr is another form of Adderall that has much longer-lasting effects and can only be taken once per day. This form of Adderall can be removed from its pill form and added to food as well.
Before using Adderall it is advised to consult a doctor and discuss certain factors that might have adverse effects upon the body when taking this drug. Adderall affects the central nervous system, acting as a stimulant to combat hyperactivity. It is recommended to heed a doctor’s advice and not take the drug if such conditions as heart disease, drug addiction, or even severe agitation are present.
Adderall can be purchased in many licensed online pharmacies, though price might vary. While it can be purchased without a prescription, it is still highly recommended that the purchaser consult a physician before self-medicating or distributing the drug to others.
The side effects attributed to Adderall can be minor or severe. In any instance that an individual feels the onset of such side effects it is highly recommended that they consult a doctor or make their way to the nearest medical professional. Such effects can include restlessness, dizziness, unwarranted anxiety and fear, dry mouth, insomnia, blurred vision, stomach pain and nausea, overall weakness, uncontrollable tremors throughout the body, hair loss, and even increased agitation. In severe cases the user can become unresponsive and experience difficulty breathing. In the emergence of any of these symptoms it is advised to discontinue the use of Adderall until the cause can be determined by a doctor.
