The intended use for Adderall is medical in nature, and is prescribed for ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It is purposeful for relieving the symptoms and has few side effects, in comparison to some other drugs such as Ritalin. Adderall is effective and potent for treating ADHD, studies show. But Adderall is an amphetamine and is often used for purposes other than originally intended. It has a younger audience which subscribes to the idea that this is a drug best used for either studying or partying. It also can suppress one’s appetite, which means some people use it for weight loss. Abusing Adderall can cause negative effects to the brain.
Effects of Adderall Abuse
Because regular use of a drug of this nature causes increase in tolerance, users often need to take more to experience the same rush. Overusing or abusing Adderall can cause problems like insomnia, paranoia, anxiety, frustration/hostility, or worse. If snorted, Adderall may cause significant and dangerous heart rate increase, blood pressure and/or overall body temperature. After its use, users may crash into an exhausted state, experiencing headaches, nausea, irritability and even depression. This produces the desire for more. Your body can quickly become dependent on the drug in order to reverse the side effects of stopping use altogether. Withdrawal symptoms range from suicidal thoughts/ behavior to nightmares and panic attacks/nervousness.
