Were you looking for information about Adderall? Aderall is a common misspelling of Adderall.
Adderall® (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine) is a prescription medication that is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. Although the drug is a stimulant, it has a calming effect when it is used at the doses prescribed to treat ADHD. On the other hand, when it is used to treat narcolepsy, it is prescribed at higher doses to cause a more stimulating effect.
Adderall is sold in both brand-name and generic form. It comes in the form of a tablet and is available in seven strengths. Potential side effects include weight loss, headaches, and insomnia. Prior to taking this drug, let your healthcare provider know if you drink alcohol regularly or have any drug allergies.
