Maybe all you need is Adderall


For some, it is hard to study and stay focused. That is why Adderall can really help. Adderall, is a once daily extended-release, single-entity amphetamine product that is typically used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD/ADD); as part of a total treatment plan, including psychological, social, and other treatments.

The drug is in very high demand for college students especially around mid-terms and finals time. There are many side effects, both desirable and undesirable, that come with taking Adderall.

Some of the undesirable effects would be nervousness, trouble sleeping and fever.

The desirable effect for some would be the loss of appetite and weight loss that comes from taking Adderall.

Dr. Mehmet Oz, better known as Dr. Oz, wrote an article about how Adderall can be even more harmful for women because of their desire to be thin.

He spoke about how media today make women feel as though thinness equals beauty.

Many women, ages 22-45, have been taking and/or stealing Adderall that was prescribed to their children, and using it as a weight loss supplement, according to Dr. Oz. I personally am prescribed Adderall, and began taking it at the end of my senior year of high school.

I instantly felt a change from the first day I took the pill.

It made me feel great, like I could accomplish anything I wanted. For me, it is both helpful and life changing.

Before I used Adderall, my focus on anything was a struggle; lectures, homework and studying for tests were almost impossible for me to pay attention to successfully. Once I started taking Adderall, I immediately felt an impact on my school work.

I was actually able to focus on what the teacher was talking about, and I could study without having my mind wandering everywhere other than where it was supposed to be. According to a USA Today article, Adderall will not actually teach you anything, but will simply help your brain focus on what it is supposed to instead of delving into distractions.

I find this drug to be extremely useful in my day-to-day life.

I think that it is ideal for a college student who has the same troubles as me.

Of course, like any other drug, it has negative effects, but in my opinion Adderall has only helped me succeed and stay focused in school.

I would recommend that anyone who has not taken Adderall should only take it if prescribed and according to your dosage.

Because of the strong effect Adderall has on your body, it is easy to become addicted to the drug.

You may feel that when you have work to do, you need an Adderall to get through the workload.

Take caution when you get prescribed Adderall, know yourself and how you react to addictive substances.
