Adderall is a trading name for the combination of drugs that contain four salts of Amphetamine. The mixture is composed of equal parts of two medicines, which are racemic Amphetamine and dextroamphetamine. Adderall is used in the treatment of disorder ADHD and narcolepsy.
Many people even consume it for better athletic performance, as an appetite suppressant, and as a cognitive enhancer. For recreational purposes, Adderall is used as an aphrodisiac and for acquiring euphoric feelings. The drug is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant of the phenethylamine class.
The Food and Drug Administration approved Adderall in 1996. Between 2008 and 2012, the use of Adderall and other ADHD ( Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) medications increased by 35 percent. From 2006 to 2011, researchers saw that the use of by young adults went up by 67 percent, and associated emergency room visits rose by 156 percent.
Adderall elevates the dopamine and norepinephrine levels in the central nervous system (CNS). Norepinephrine increases the level of attention and the speed at which it reacts to an outside stimulus.

Adults with ADHD are at a much higher risk of developing cardiovascular and substance use problems.
The most commonly seen adverse cardiovascular effects are elevated blood pressure and increased heart rate, reported in both short-and long-term treatment trials.
