Adderall is one of the most commonly taken prescription medications targeted at children. It purportedly treats Attention Defecit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) by making children more focused; however, what many people are not aware of is that this drug is essentially the same thing as Amphetamine.

The problem with this is that Adderall is a powerful, and highly addictive, stimulant that causes an increase in heart rate, and is particularly dangerous for children with heart complications. While the chance of a serious injury is greatly increased by taking higher than standard doses, even standard doses have been known to cause serious adverse effects. That being said, some doctors prescribe doses of up to a 100mg of Adderall per day (the standard dose is usually 10mg).

This drug is in fact so pernicious that it has been banned in Canada after Adderall XR was linked to 20 deaths, all of which occurred as a result of ‘standard’ usage.

The following serious Adderall side-effects have been found to be associated with this ADHD drug (as well as others):

  • Heart Attack
  • Stroke
  • Auditory Hallucination
  • Addiction
  • Paranoia
  • Manic depression
  • Cardiovascular Problems
