Adderall is a prescription medication with an interesting history. Known for its ability to keep people awake, this strong stimulant has been used to treat narcolepsy, a medical condition where someone may fall asleep at any moment. It has also been given to soldiers and pilots who need to stay awake and alert for long periods of time.
These days, Adderall is better known for being prescribed as a treatment for ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). This drug has the potential to be abused, both by those for whom it has been prescribed, and others.
A big issue with this, is that often, Adderall is prescribed to kids or teens. When abuse happens, the chances of addiction is very high and professional stimulant drug addiction treatment is necessary, even at a young age.
