First off. Adderall is an extremely powerful medication! I would consider finding out why you are willing to fake an illness to get ahold of such a drug that can be so dangerous. I know personally that this medication can be so harmful because I take it daily! It's not a med to fake having ADD to get! Doctors don't just give out Adderall to anyone. It's highly guarded by the FDA, you can't even get a refill for it. You have to actually get a written script every month. It's not worth it for you to "fake it" I'm not sure you understand just how serious Adderall is. It's highly addictive. Highly abused, and very lethal if not taken under doctors care and within limits. You need to sit down and seriously consider why your online asking such potentially lethal questions.... Adderall has the power to grip a hold of your life and not let go. NO matter how powerful you THINK you are... I have friends who thought they could be better then the med.. but it doesn't work that way with this one. Well, the majority of the post above is relevant - to the person having posted it; there is something that I would like to address. I agree that, never should anyone FAKE an illness to get a medication prescribed. I receive all my medications from the Veterans Administration since I am a 100% Service Connected Totally & Permanently Disabled American Combat Veteran. I receive "amphetamine salts" (Adderall) with refills. My wife receives the same from her civilian doctor - with refills. This is where I disagree with your post. I know many people that receive it WITH refills, both Veterans and civilians. I agree that it is such a powerful drug that it can consume a person's motivation and become debilitating. However, we all differ in our ability or inability to deal with ANY situation in life - including dependency to certain drugs. While in the U.S. Armed Forces, Naval Special Warfare Group under JSOC; I was given methamphetamine for various operations. This of course was from government contracted drug manufacturing companies - not from street rats cooking it in their trailer houses. I did not become addicted to meth while in service, I don't seek it now that I am out. As for Adderall (amphetamine salts), I often times go weeks without taking ANY. I have had so much stocked up that I began destroying and disposing of it. The very question asked here makes me believe that whomever asked it, would NOT be able to properly use it as prescribed. They may also be after it for its street value. Adderall and Ritalin command anywhere from 2.00 to 20.00 US - for ONE PILL. How do I know? I have been offered as much for my prescriptions. -=====

Adderall would usually be prescribed for an individual who has been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD. Some doctors are now prescribing it for depression and weight loss.

In order to get prescribed adderall you have to visit your doctor or a phsychiatrist and get tested for ADD/ADHD. It is discouraged to fake the symptoms and normally caught, but every now and then many do slip through the cracks.

Adderall is used for the treatment of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), so I think that you could use this medicine if you are suffering from this disorder, and your doctor prescribe them.

Many of the drugs used for add and Ashford such as Ritalin, Concerts,Focalin and Vyvanse do the same thing Adderall does only tend to not be so addictive.

Typically, adderall is used for ADD and ADHD. it is also approved for narcolepsy. the main ingredient in adderall, amphetamine salts, was first put on the market as a weight loss drug called "Obetrol." however, they took obetrol off the market because of the abuse potential and possible nasty side effects. Even though adderall (amphetamine) isn't prescribed for weight loss anymore, people commonly use it for that reason.

You really shouldn't be on a prescription for Adderall and Xanax at the same time. It's possible that Adderall could potentiate the effects of the xanax. That means that if you mix them, you normal dose of Xanax could knock you out. It also depends on if you are taking Adderall because you have been diagnosed with ADD. The effects of Adderall are different for people who do not have ADD.

No, Adderall is a psychostimulant drug used mainly in the treatment of ADD and ADHD.

Yes, adderall is a stimulant although for reasons unknown it has a calming effect on people with ADD. So if someone who does not have ADD were to take it, it would serve as a stimulant.

User Avatar

You cant, I'm a doctor and the only way to receive Adderall is if you have ADD or ADHD.

No. Why would an ADD pill contain THC?

adderall is an amphetamine which stimulates brain function. however it is unlike its cousin methamphetamine in the sense that its effects are more "controlled".

User Avatar

Most simply, they are two different drugs. Concerta is a sustained-release formulation of methylphenidate, and Adderall XR is an extended-release formulation of a mixture of amphetamine salts. It's like the difference between Ritalin and Adderall, which are the immediate-release forms. Both drugs are stimulants, usually prescribed for ADD/ADHD. Methylphenidate is said to not be as strong a stimulant as amphetamine, but is still controlled as tightly.

No, adderall is taken for ADD and ADHD its like speed for people without ADD or ADHD if you have anxiety do not take adderall it will make your heart race and you will be going a million miles and hour and you will not be able to calm down.

User Avatar

Not every one has ADD only certain people for instance people with ADHD only have ADD and having ADD and ADHD you have to take a certain prescription that can only be prescribed by your doctor its called either focollian or adderall typically you have to take for many years but that depends on the person they may grow out of the pill and won't have to take the pill any longer and the pill does decrease appetite and stunts growth

User Avatar

My prescription says every 4 hours, during the hours you are awake. Most people I talk to with ADD take it twice a day only. It depends on your specific needs and how your doctor prescribed it. You DO have a prescription, don't you?

User Avatar
