Adderall is a prescription drug used mainly to treat ADD/ADHD kids and sometimes adults. It increases attention span and energy, the ability to retain information, and to stay interested and focused. Learning and cleaning, basically doing anything lame that is usually hell to have to do become almost fun.

Used widely for its recreational mood-heightening, energy adding effects. Also used widely by high school and college students to cram for tests (finals = stock up time!). It lets you stay up all night and study, read, take notes, anything school-related without becoming bored out of your mind or passing out tired. It's also insanely easy to remember anything you read on it.. It's basically the solution to all of life's problems.. too bad about that whole high potential to become habit forming part.

Comes in either regular doses or extended-release tablets which release the contents into your blood-stream evenly by the hour, for about 8 hours.
I know nothing for my spanish final tomorrow, I'm gonna have to take some adderall tonight to learn a new language.

a prescription medication consisting of racemic (levo- and dextro- isomers both included) amphetamine salts. (the dextro- isomers are reported to be more recreationally useful than the levo- isomers, as it is said the levo- isomers cause little psychological effects and the dextro- isomer is even preferred in a medical use setting). they're prescribed by doctors for ADHD but are widely abused. the extended release get you high for HOURS and have a really intense but edgy high. Effects include increased motivation, increased concentration, extreme euphoria, loads of energy, and your brain works in a more logical, calculating way in general. A very distinctive high. Side-effects include tension in the jaw, inability or feeling like you don't need to eat, and I personally get a very noticeable 'tick' that pretty much announces to everyone I'm on speed .I tend to bite and lick my lips really fast when I speed, and it tends to look like I'm flicking my tongue at people or something. Effects like this can go completely subconscious and the user will not even realize he is doing things such as this (if side-effects like this are experienced). One of the bad things about adderall is the harsh comedown (when you take a decent amount). Speed hangovers can include unsettling of the stomach, fatigue, inability to sleep, feeling just generally depressed or down, and if taken for extended periods the hangover can turn into a full-blown crash, which can be almost UNBEARABLE.

Adderall's chemically active component amphetamine acts on your brain by causing the release of a chemical called dopamine, which is your brain's 'reward' chemical. I.E. when you eat good food, have sex, or do something else pleasurable, your brain normally releases small amounts of dopamine. With adderall, large amounts of dopamine are released into the brain, and by pharmacological action of amphetamine, a process occurs called dopamine reuptake antagonism, which is basically a science term to describe that the dopamine is stuck floating in your brain instead of being metabolized or taken back up, which occurs normally within minutes. With adderall, however, dopamine, your "FUCK YEAH LET'S DO THIS!!!" chemical is stuck floating around in your brain for hours on end causing the strongly reported euphoria and other recreational effects.

Chemically, adderall's psychoactive chemical amphetamine is closely related to several other drugs. These include methamphetamine, or "meth, ice," etc, which is just an amphetamine molecule with a methyl group (CH3, one carbon atom stuck with 3 hydrogen atoms) stuck on the end, which basically causes the effects of the drug to be amplified, which is why meth is so much more addictive. Other related compounds include MDMA, aka ecstasy, which is the methamphetamine compound with 2 oxygens stuck to the other end of the molecule with a carbon and 2 hydrogens in between them. There are numerous other related compounds, but I'm really getting tired of typing at this point.
I took 3 30's of adderall at 2 earlier but now I'm coming down...this sucks man

A pill, available in a variety of doses and colors, used medically to treat ADD/ADHD. Adderall is abused by people ranging from your everyday soccer mom, to a 15-year-old loner to help build his social life. If you haven't tried it already, it is highly recommended by everyone who has. Adderall has different effects on different people; but virtually everyone feels as though their life is perfect while under the influence of this majestic piece of heaven. It is easily obtained in a college student environment and pretty much any school-type environments. Most common uses for Adderall include: finishing a school assignment worth major points, building a social life, achieving excellence in the work environment, making family time somewhat tolerable, losing weight, staying up for over 24 hours (commonly known as an Adderallnighter,) cleaning your house in a limited amount of time (yet, extremely thorough and organized) and any other activities that suck to do when sober. Highly addictive, yet totally worth it.
Anna - "I have a 500 point project due tomorrow morning, and I haven't even looked at the assignment yet! What am I going to do?"

Karen - "I just got my prescription of Adderall 30mg filled, wanna try to see if it will help you focus on getting your assignment done?"

Anna - "Sure. Do you want money or something for it?"

Karen - "Nah, first one's on me. After this, $3/pill. Here. Enjoy."

Anna - *takes sip of overpriced energy drink, swallows the drug*

Roughly 30 minutes later...

Anna - "Well, I'm gonna go to the library and start on this lame thing. Thanks, Kar. I'll tell you how it goes."

The next day, after class...

Karen - "So, how was it?"

Anna - "I still haven't slept. I was at the library 'til it closed last night. Finished my project, wrote it all out a second time, just in case. Went to my moms to catch up on things, kept her up 'til 2am. Drove around aimlessly, in complete silence, 'til 7:30am. Went to class, presented my project, listened to everyone else, critiquing every sentence quietly to myself, stayed after class to talk to the professor about how much I enjoyed his assignment and how much hard work I put into it. Came back here, emptied my dresser, unfolded and refolded every piece of clothing, organizing them by brands, did the same with yours. Then you came in, and here we are. You got anymore of that? I have some extra money to spend on this miracle drug."
*inside Anna's head: It's a whole NEW worlddddd*
