Adderall Xr

Adderall is a brand-name medication that combines two drugs, dextroamphetamine and amphetamine in an extended-release form. Adderall XR is a nervous system stimulant drug, which can temporarily improve physical and mental function. Adderall XR is often used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD or ADD) and narcolepsy, and with improper use has a high risk for abuse and addiction. Adderall XR can help people with ADHD better concentrate, sit quietly and still, and better control their actions. Adderall XR may make it difficult to fall asleep, so it is typically prescribed for use only in the morning. Children taking Adderall XR for ADHD may experience delayed growth or slow weight gain.
