Adderall is a combination drug composed of the generic medications Dextroamphetamine and Amphetamine. It is a stimulant that is used to treat conditions that cause a state of drowsiness or a lack of focus. The two most common uses of Adderall is in treating Narcolepsy and ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). Adderall works by stimulating the central nervous system and altering the balance of the chemicals in the brain that are responsible for impulse control.
Narcolepsy is a very serious sleep disorder that can cause a person to suddenly fall asleep in any situation without warning. This can be very dangerous for not only the person with the condition but for all of those in the immediate area. Narcolepsy makes doing the simple things that most people take for granted like driving a vehicle impossible without placing lives at risk. Adderall has shown to be very successful in overcoming narcolepsy and under close monitoring by a physician can usually eliminate all of the symptoms in most cases.

ADHD is a condition that is normally associated with school age children who are having trouble concentrating of their schoolwork due to a short attention span or bouts of hyperactivity. It is a condition not limited to children as many adults are diagnosed with it and many more go through their lives fighting the symptoms without ever seeking professional help. Adderall rebalances the brain chemicals that control impulse and give the ADHD sufferer the ability to maintain focus on the task at hand. Adderall also has a slight calming effect on the bouts of hyperactivity which can also interfere with concentration and focus.
Adderall may be habit forming so it is important to always take it exactly as prescribed by you or your child’s physician. Adderall may also slow down the growth rate in some children so it is important to inform your physician if you notice that your child is not gaining weight as they should be.
