Taking a drug like Adderall can provide a temporary feeling of focus, but in the long term can be damaging to the brain and other parts of the body. Abuse of these drugs can cause issues in the brain heart. Because they are amphetamines, many develop anxiety or paranoia due to Adderall abuse. This means they increase the heart rate and breathing which can cause problems.
Some warning signs that a loved one may be abusing this medication are social withdrawal, chest pain, labored breathing, paranoia, or anxiety. While this drug can be less addictive than say heroin, its effects can be devastating to many. Those in higher education are the most likely to be affected by this drug. Many students have failed out of classes due to their addiction to these drugs.
