Adderall contains a combination of two enantiomers of amphetamine. It belongs to a psychostimulant class of the Phenethylamine drugs. Adderall is given for people suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorders as well as those who suffer from narcolepsy. In addition, it is used for helping to improve the athletic performance and it is also used for cognitive enhancement. People misuse Adderall or rather use it recreationally as well as it is a kind of an aphrodisiac and it is a euphoriant too. The salt content in this is 75% of dextroamphetamine salts and 25% of the salts of levoamphetamine.
Reasons Adderall is prescribed for bogus diseases
Adderall is given for bogus diseases as it does help with the improvement of the brain and to improve the growth of nerves. It also decreases any abnormalities in the brain structure as well as the functioning. It even helps increase the functioning of the right caudate nucleus which is there in the basal ganglia.
It is found that disruptive behaviours also decrease when this is administered. It can also be administered to children and the children whom Adderall has been administered have better relationships with their family as well as peers and are able to do better at school and are less disruptive and less impulsive as well. Even if given to people with Tourette’s syndrome, if the patients were given these their tics did not get worse.
Adderall also has other benefits like increasing the working memory or the episodic memory and the inhibitory control. It indirectly activates the dopamine receptor D1 as well as the adrenoceptor α2 which is there in the prefrontal cortex. Adderall helps also to improve the memory consolidation and the cortical network efficiency increases. The motivation levels to perform tasks improve and the wakefulness improves too, as a result, the person gets more goal oriented. It is also used so that the endurance levels improve and so does muscle strength, athletic performance, acceleration and reuptake inhibition.
Effects on the psychological front
There are effects which are seen on the psychological front when the person takes Adderall. These are that there is increased alertness, concentration, apprehension, mood swings, and decreased the sense of fatigue, increased initiative taking, wakefulness, insomnia, sociability, and self-confidence. However, there are chances that a person may suffer from side effects such as a change in libido, anxiety, a feeling of grandiosity, irritability, obsessive and repetitive behaviour as well as restlessness. If the person is on very heavy dose of adderall then there are chances of delusions and paranoia as well. However, they do not produce effects such as aggressiveness or hostility.
Therefore, this can be given as there are more benefits which the Adderall user will get rather than more harm. It can also be safely prescribed to all kinds of people and even children. It aids is the development of the brain and cognitive skills so even if the person does not have any need it will only help boost the brain power.
