Adderall: The Drug of A New Generation

 Adderall is an amphetamine that doctors prescribe to help people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Adderall is an amphetamine that stimulates the central nervous system. It has been approved by the FDA since 1996 for treating ADHD in adults and in children over the age of 6 years old. Adderall is an amphetamine stimulant for treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy, and is a mixture of amphetamine salts. The four components are claimed to be metabolized at different rates.

Adderall is being abused in college and high school campuses across the United States. We have to do something to limit the misuse of Adderall that is being distributed through prescription use. Adderall is generally well tolerated with few adverse reactions reported. The most frequently reported adverse reactions include anorexia, insomnia, stomach pain, headache, irritability, and weight loss. Adderall is typically used as part of a broader treatment plan, a treatment plan that should include psychological, educational, and even social measures. Adderall is also used to treat narcolepsy.

Students have been taking stimulants to boost productivity for a long time — diet pills or caffeine pills or whatever. The pills don’t crack the book and do the reading for them. Students are trading hard work and effort for an easy substitute: a little blue pill. A little blue pill that makes schoolwork more bearable, a little blue pill that takes off some of the pressure, a little blue pill that echoes the soma-influenced world of Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World”. Students who begin using Adderall as a study aid find they are unable to feel confident in their study habits and learning skills without the drug. Many users then become completely dependent on it, needing increased amounts of the substance to receive the same effects.

Adderall is supposed to be effective for four to six hours. Adderall is an alternative to Ritalin and lasts twice as long in the brain. In addition, Adderall is prescribed in order to regulate the chemical functioning of dopamine in your brain. Adderall is a drug used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. It is a stimulant, but when used at the doses for ADHD, it has a calming effect.
