Use these Health Check-up tools to learn more


Adderall is a brand-name medication that combines two drugs, dextroamphetamine and amphetamine. Adderall is a nervous system stimulant drug, which can temporarily improve physical and mental function. Adderall 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 can help people with ADHD better concentrate, sit quietly and still, and better control their actions. Adderall may make it difficult to fall asleep, so it is typically prescribed for use only in the morning. Children taking Adderall for ADHD may experience delayed growth or slow weight gain.

I need to lose about 50 lbs, I have lost maybe 15 lbs and I do try to watch what I eat so if I hadn't wanted to lose weight I probably could have avoided most of the weight loss.10/25/2010 at 08:08 AM
