There are a handful of prescription medications that individuals can become easily addicted to, and Adderall is one of the most common. This stimulant medication is commonly prescribed for Attention Deficit & Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The chemical properties of this medication are known to significantly increase one’s energy, induce a sense of hyper-focus and improve one’s feelings of motivation, which can make it appealing to those who do not need it for medical purposes.
When consumed recreationally and outside of prescribed guidelines, Adderall induces a sense of euphoria, suppresses one’s appetite, and increases confidence, which also makes it highly appealing to individuals.
The common abuse of Adderall, which is known as Stimulant Use Disorder, refers to a cycle of behavior where individuals abuse Adderall for non-medical purposes. Those who are addicted to this medication will keep consuming the substance despite the onset of negative consequences that occur as a result. Even as negative physical and emotional health concerns mount, once an individual develops Adderall addiction, it is highly challenging for him or her to stop using this drug.
