  5. Can you become addicted to Adderall?
Asked: 2018-03-28 07:11:10
I have been taking Adderall for ADHD every day for most of my adult life. I don't really know what life feels like to function without taking it as it has become a normal part of my everyday life. Anywho, I noticed yesterday evening that in my rush to get out the door for work in the morning I had forgotten to take my morning pills. Upon further reflection of my day I recalled that I had been extremely irritable all day long and my body felt achy to a degree of abnormality that I was not accustomed to. I did not think much of it as my day ran its course but, now that I think about it I am wondering if the way that I felt was withdrawal pains from the Adderall. Is it possible to become addicted to Adderall? I mean it is ADHD medication so I never really thought much about its long term effects. Any insight on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Adderall is considered a stimulant and its contents are similar to the contents of various street drugs that pose extremely dangerous health risks. If you are concerned about addiction then you should definitely bring it up and discuss it with your healthcare provider.

Adderall for the most part is just legal Meth. Yes it is clean and we know exactly what is inside of each pill because it is regulated by the FDA but when you boil it all down, Amphetamines are Amphetamines and the risk for addiction to these substances are extremely high.
