Adderall, a combination of dextroamphetamine and amphetamine, is a stimulant medication prescribed to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy.
There are two forms of prescription Adderall, either of which may be used:
- Adderall, an immediate-release tablet
- Adderall XR, a once-daily extended-release capsule
Adderall is typically safe when taken as prescribed and under a doctor’s guidance; however, when misused in a nonmedical way, Adderall can be a very dangerous drug.
Adderall Use Signs and Symptoms
A person addicted to Adderall may go to great lengths to acquire the drug. This may include stealing it, buying it off the street, or stealing money to pay for it. Some individuals may also pretend that they have ADHD to obtain a prescription from a doctor. When a person is addicted to Adderall and using it compulsively, they may become upset when they run out of the drug. An individual may also claim that they need the drug to function or cannot think clearly without it.
A person who is abusing Adderall may become uncharacteristically talkative or active. They may also lose their inhibitions and appear excessively happy in social settings. While under the influence of Adderall, a person could have dilated pupils and muscle tremors or twitches. As a stimulant, Adderall can make a person feel like they don’t need sleep. Because of this, a person may have insomnia and be awake at odd hours of the night.
Chronic use or large doses of this drug may lead to serious physical health problems. The physiological risks and dangers of Adderall use include:
- Chronic sleep problems
- Flushed, pale skin
- Repetitive movements
- Skin disorders
- Trouble breathing
- Vitamin deficiency
Adderall Detox Treatment at Vertava Health Massachusetts
Though symptoms of Adderall withdrawal aren’t as severe as certain other drugs, withdrawal cravings and discomfort could become uncomfortable to the point a person returns to drug use in an attempt to stop them.
Because of this, it may be best to undergo withdrawal from Adderall under professional medical supervision. While withdrawal symptoms may not become severe enough to warrant an inpatient medical detox program, an outpatient detox program may be recommended. In addition to treating withdrawal symptoms, a detox program for Adderall may begin to address any malnutrition or vitamin deficiencies caused by Adderall use.
