Adderall has its measure of abuse and addiction, which can result in taking life-changing risks. However, the strong effects of how this medication works has made this one of the most effective medications for ADHD and related health conditions. But, unfortunately, getting this medication prescribed often has its complications, and it’s never that easy. This article will give a clear understanding of how to get prescribed Adderall by your doctor, what conditions you should meet, and so on.
Adderall and its generic counterparts are powerful stimulants that help those with ADHD stay on top of their lives. For many people out there, it can be invaluable to their success in life – professionally, in daily life, and otherwise.
[Adderall] can help increase your ability to pay attention, stay focused on an activity, and control behavior problems. It may also help you to organize your tasks and improve listening skills.
WebMDAdderall works by increasing serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine levels in the central nervous system.
Norepinephrine affects how the brain responds to events – particularly how it pays attention and the speed at which it reacts to outside stimuli.
Dopamine, the body’s “feel good” chemical, creates a rewarding effect. Although dopamine occurs naturally, drugs like Adderall work in overtime to produce even higher levels of it.
Adderall works very well for a lot of people out there. “I can’t believe how I got through life before this!” they think to themselves.
These positive effects inevitably lead users to feel a craving for more. After all – it’s working so well, so why not? As your body gets used to the effects of Adderall, however, it naturally builds up a tolerance to it, which leads users to have to take more to achieve the same results. It seems as though every couple of weeks, like clockwork, someone excitedly posts on Reddit’s r/adhd about how great their first Adderall experience made them feel. They’re ECSTATIC. And without fail, everyone else jumps in to assure him or her that the euphoric effects fade away after a week or two.
In the medical sense, the fadeaway of this euphoric is fine. After all, it’s the positive effects of Adderall on the brain that ADHD patients want and need. But for the unlucky few who think otherwise, addiction can rear its ugly head and they begin “chasing the dragon.”
Adderall is a Schedule II substance in the United States, meaning it is a “drug with a high potential for abuse, with use potentially leading to severe psychological or physical dependence.” (source DEA). This is one reason why recreation use of Adderall is so dangerous, and why it’s essential that your use is supervised by a licensed psychiatrist.
The purpose of this article is to educate everyone to the best of my ability: both on the dangers of Adderall, and on how to legally be prescribed Adderall online. The answer to the latter is quite simple: schedule an online appoint with a psychiatrist (online).
Let your doctor know you have been experiencing long-term or severe symptoms of ADHD or depression. You can be upfront in asking the doctor to prescribe medication over other non-medication alternatives. You can also get prescriptions online for Adderall, but doctors rarely feel comfortable in doing this.
Adderall is a medication prescribed mainly for ADHD. However, this medication is a controlled substance and cannot be obtained over the counter.
To prescribe Adderall, a doctor would first send patients through an assessment route.
This assessment is carried out to see if patients meet set criteria or conditions to which Adderall can be prescribed.
Besides prescribing Adderall for ADHD, some doctors may also prescribe Adderall for depression and other related diseases. For example, patients who have severe depression and are facing difficulties with focusing are prescribed Adderall.
But again, if the doctor realizes you have other health conditions going on, then the doctor may first prescribe medication for those conditions to see if those are the conditions causing an inability to focus. And if those medications fail to work, then the doctor may issue you with a prescription for Adderall.
Even if a doctor diagnoses one with ADHD, most of the doctors will start prescriptions with non-stimulant ADHD medications.
These non-stimulant ADHD medications are safer and less addictive, unlike Adderall. And if these non-stimulant medications don’t work, doctors may eventually prescribe medications similar, but less intense than Adderall like Ritalin and Vyvanse.
Only if these medications don’t work, or if your health conditions become more severe over time that doctors may prescribe Adderall. However, it can take time to go through the process of being prescribed Adderall.
