What is Adderall?

Adderall is a stimulant most often prescribed to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. When an individual takes Adderall, they may initially experience, “euphoria, increased blood pressure and heart rate, increased breathing, decreased blood flow, increased blood sugar, and opened-up breathing passages.” However, as a stimulant, Adderall can also bring on bouts of anger, paranoia, and psychosis.

Adderall users may also experience several side effects. Some negative symptoms of Adderall use include: 

  • Paranoia
  • Hallucinating
  • Irritability and Restlessness
  • Dangerous or Reckless Behavior
  • Blurred Vision
  • Numbness, Twitching, or Shaking

If you are not prescribed Adderall, you should not be taking it. It can cause damage to your body’s functions. According to the FDA, it can affect the user’s kidneys, heart, mood, and sexual function.

What does an Adderall look like?

Adderall most often comes in pill form. It can be in capsule or tablet form as well. In capsule form, Adderall can be blue, blue and white, orange, or a combination of orange and white. These tablets are marked Adderall or Adderall XR for the extended-release tablets. 

When Adderall is in tablet form, it can be either a blue or orange tablet with a number (between 5-30) to indicate the milligram.

What should you do if you find Adderall in your loved one’s possession?

If you find Adderall in your loved one’s possession and they shouldn’t have it or don’t have a prescription for it, they may need help. An addiction to Adderall can be extremely dangerous and may cause a difficult process during the early stages of detox.

Adderall is a stimulant and as such, it can alter how the body functions. When the body has excess amounts of a stimulant it can cause the heart to race, the body temperature to increase, and can cause seizures. When the body becomes addicted to stimulants, including Adderall, the withdrawal from them can be equally as dangerous. 

Withdrawal from Adderall can include

  • Fatigue
  • Nightmares
  • Insomnia or Hypersomnia
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Anxiety 
  • Intense cravings and urges to use Adderakk
  • Paranoia

Withdrawal from stimulants should be medically monitored and completed in a safe, drug-free environment.
