Reasons for Adderall Being Snorted
There are many reasons why Adderall is snorted. It is a stimulant, or an "upper," that people can easily abuse. Another reason is for weight loss. Weight loss is a common side effect of Adderall. Because it is a commonly prescribed medication, it is often easy to find.
Is It Safe?
Many people mistakenly think that snorting (or otherwise abusing) Adderall is safe because Adderall is a prescription medication, not a "street drug." Many people who abuse Adderall take it in very high doses, much higher than normally prescribed. People who snort or inject normal doses of Adderall are also putting themselves at higher risk because snorting or injecting drugs allows for direct entry into the bloodstream, making them more potent (and more dangerous). Also, Adderall is not sterile, and injecting or snorting it may lead to infections or other problems.
