Is Adderall addictive?
Adderall is one of the more readily accessible drugs today and is highly addictive. Abuse of Adderall can result in physical and psychological damage. Thankfully, help is available to those who desire freedom from an Adderall addiction.
Adderall is available as a tablet and as an extended-release capsule (Adderall XR). It comes in varying doses, depending on the size of the patient and the severity of symptoms. Dosages are recognizable by their varying shapes, colors, and sizes:
Adderall is prescribed as a pill with doses between 5 and 30 milligrams.
Adderall is said to work faster if it is crushed to a powder and snorted, but there is no confirmation of that.
On the street, Adderall is known as speed, uppers, black beauties, Addys, and pep pills.
Adderall is also known as a schedule II level drug because of its strong addictive potential.
