What Is Adderall?
Adderall is a prescription drug primarily used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or narcolepsy, a condition that involves falling asleep uncontrollably, and at unusual times. It increases concentration, boosts energy levels, and fights off fatigue. Here is how it works: the drug releases neurological chemicals that stimulate interaction between neurons, allowing a person to think more fluidly. In addition, it affects heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and metabolism.
Adderall can be abused in many different ways. Some individuals take it orally, as prescribed by a physician. Others may inject, snort or smoke Adderall in order to get “high.” Interestingly, some people abuse it just to lose weight. In fact, weight loss is a common side effect caused by this drug. Some students start using Adderall simply because they feel that the drug enhances their performance in school.
If used properly, Adderall can very effective. However, it can be habit-forming and lead to serious physical and psychological problems. High risk of addiction and dependence may lead to theft or “doctor shopping”—simultaneously requesting care from multiple physicians.
The Dangers and Symptoms of Adderall Abuse
The consequences of Adderall abuse can be severe. Taking high doses of the stimulant may produce an irregular heart beat, extremely high body temperature, and even the potential for seizures of cardiovascular failure. Ingesting the drug for a prolonged period of time may lead to hostility and paranoia. Due to the fact that Adderall may increase blood pressure, it carries the risk of a stroke, heart attack or sudden death.
It is important to note that pregnant women should avoid using the drug. While there is no definite proof that the drug can harm an unborn child, it could cause premature birth, low birth weight, or withdrawal symptoms in a newborn.
Sudden discontinuation may lead to severe withdrawal symptoms, such as:
- High blood pressure
- Muscle pain
