Adderall is a combination medication containing four salts of amphetamine. Adderall is used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. It is also used as an athletic performance enhancer and cognitive enhancer, and recreationally as an aphrodisiac and euphoriant. It is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant of the phenethylamine class. By salt content, the active ingredients are 25% levoamphetamine salts (the levorotatory or ‘left-handed’ enantiomer) and 75% dextroamphetamine salts (the dextrorotatory or ‘right-handed’ enantiomer)
Adderall is a stimulant drug that doctors will prescribe to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. Yet there are also instances where it has been prescribed as an antidepressant augmentation strategy and to treat chronic fatigue.
