What Happens When You Abuse Adderall?

Adderall is a well-known drug for treating attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or commonly known as ADHD. It is a safe and effective approach for controlling symptoms when taken as directed by a doctor. However, a worrying trend of Adderall abuse has emerged among teenagers, college students, and even adults.
