Adderall Addiction

  • Topic Info:Adderall is a combination of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine that is used to treat the symptoms of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). 

    Adderall is a growing trend that is abused mostly by college students, estimated beteween 20-30%, and young adults.

    Adderall abuse occurs when people take the drug for reasons other than medical reasons.  

    Many use Adderall to help them academically, but many simply use the stimulant for the more euphoric feelings it produces.
