Adderall is a central nervous system stimulant that is used to treat narcolepsy and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It contains a combination of amphetamine and dextroamphetamin which are central nervous system stimulants that affect chemicals in the brain and nerves that contribute to hyperactivity and impulse control and help balance neurotransmitters in the brain to overcome ADHD. Aderall can improve the patient's ability to stay focused and pay attention, and can also help to curb any behavioral issues that stem from hyperactivity disorder. This medication should not be used if you have glaucoma, severe anxiety or agitation, or a personal or family history of tics (muscle twitches) or Tourette's syndrome.
Shire Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Aderall, helps qualified patients lower the cost of their Aderall medication, through Patient Assistance Program, Adderall XR samples or Adderall XR coupons.
