A lot of people take Adderall for attention deficit problems and related conditions. It can work very well to help children focus. Also, adults use it who have the same types of problems with their attention span. But the side effects of Adderall can be serious if individuals fail to take it properly. It’s a controlled substance, meaning it’s not possible to get a prescription refilled early, and not every doctor will prescribe it quickly or easily. Generally, we try other ways of helping someone become more focused first.
If you’re finding that an Adderall addiction is an issue, Crestview Recovery is here and ready to help you with our Adderall addiction treatment program. Call us today at 866.262.0531 to learn more about it.
The Side Effects of Adderall Can Include Addiction
While people think of the side effects of Adderall as including things like being jittery, having too much energy, staying up all night, and related “up” behaviors, they may not realize that Adderall can also become very addictive. People who take too much Adderall can also increase their heart rate and breathing, and can eventually cause damage to their internal organs and brain chemistry. For those who are struggling with addiction to Adderall, getting help is the first step toward a future that’s free of addiction. Living a clean and sober life is possible, even if addiction has been a problem for some time.
While many people use Adderall without experiencing any negative consequences, others find that the drug leads to serious problems. Adderall addiction is a real and serious concern for some people who take the medication. When taken as prescribed by a doctor, Adderall can be a safe and effective treatment for ADHD. However, when misused or abused, Adderall can be dangerous.
Symptoms of Adderall Addiction To Look Out For
Adderall addiction can develop quickly, especially if the drug is being used to self-medicate undiagnosed mental health problems or as a study aid. The side effects of Adderall can include paranoia, irritability, aggression, and delusions. Taking too much Adderall can also lead to cardiovascular problems, including an irregular heartbeat and high blood pressure. Adderall addiction is a serious problem that can be difficult to overcome without professional treatment.
To get past an Adderall addiction, the first step is to reach out for help. That’s not always easy, because it can be very difficult to admit that there’s a problem and to ask for help.
