My son is diagnosed with ADHD so obviously he needs some medications to treat his condition. Doctor prescribed him Adderall. Since we have no experience with this medicine I would like to hear some info about it. Are there some negative effects of this medicine, as one friend of mine warrants me? Can you tell me something more about Adderall long-term health effects?

This drug is a stimulant, helping patients to maintain attention for a longer duration. This way, patients are able to study or work more effectively, without experiencing medication’s speed-like effects. Some people use this medicine with alcohol, which delay sleep or passing drunken feelings. It is dangerous to have medicine like this without prescription, and illegal, off course. As any other medicine, Adderall has some side effects, long and short-term psychological effects. Some of these are paranoia, psychotic episodes, anxiety and severe depression. Especial chronic physical effects from long-term use are convulsions, irregular heartbeats, fever, malnutrition and tremors. Addiction could be permanent alterations caused by this drug.
