What is Adderall?

Adderall is a psychostimulant prescription drug and can help a person find a temporary escape from the underlying issues that harm him. It is a blend of dextroamphetamine and amphetamine. The drug acts as a stimulant and increases the level of Norepinephrine and Dopamine in the body. Two types of Adderall formulas are generally available; these are Extended Release (ER) or Instant Release (IR) formulations.

Symptoms of Adderall Consumption

Majority of Adderall abusers have similar symptoms when they start consuming the drug. These symptoms are divided into two types, mental and physical symptoms.

Mental Symptoms:

Adderall changes the brain’s chemical composition and has an impact on a person’s mood and cognitive functions. Some common mental symptoms that one feels include:

  • Nervousness
  • Anger
  • Hallucinations
  • Depression
  • Aggression
  • Irritability.

This information is then used to help the clinical team develop an individualized treatment program that meets each patient’s unique needs. This is an essential first step in making sure a patient’s treatment is successful.

Physical symptoms

As Adderall is known to be a stimulant, a person consuming it will have the following symptoms:

  • Increased blood pressure
  • Increased body temperature
  • Increased breathing rate
  • Dizziness
  • Vision impairments
  • Increased thirst
  • Loss of appetite

If a user is injecting Adderall instead of taking Adderall pills, there may also be puncture wounds on the body. The severity of these can often tell us a lot about the intensity of the abuse. If you think someone is addicted to Adderall, the best way to find out is by checking their arm for needle marks or puncture wounds.

Adderall Addiction and Withdrawal

In many instances, the person taking Adderall wants to increase their productivity or focus better and has no intention of becoming addicted. However, once they see the positive side effects of Adderall, they start consuming it more and more. Many people trick doctors into getting prescriptions for Adderall. Others get the drugs illegally through dealers. Most people take Adderall orally; however, people also snort or inject it. Snorting and injecting it can cause different health issues. While Adderall may help a person focus, consuming it daily may cause a person to ignore his responsibilities. A common sign to identify an Adderall addiction user is to see how often he talks about the drug and problems it has solved for him. A person who uses Adderall for an extended period can develop a dependence and tolerance for the drug. As the person’s tolerance builds up, he needs to consume more and more drugs to feel the impact. Consuming small dosages does not work as the body becomes dependent on the drug. If such a person stops taking the drug, he feels withdrawal symptoms. Some people’s symptoms last longer than a month, while others feel better within a day or two. This depends on the dependence and tolerance of the body.

Treatment

It is best to go to a trusted and professional rehab to get treatment for Adderall addiction. Once a person is in rehab, the center helps monitor his withdrawal symptoms. Patients also undergo psychotherapy and group or individual therapy sessions that help them understand how to cope with the addiction. The person must seek proper treatment as withdrawing at home can often cause a relapse. It can be harmful to the addict and their loved ones as the symptoms can sometimes get hard to manage.
