Adderall is a combination stimulant drug that includes amphetamine as well as dextroamphetamine. It’s commonly prescribed to those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or also narcolepsy. In smaller doses, the drug can be helpful in treating these conditions, however in larger doses, can be highly addictive.
