Many students and even adults feel that it is necessary to turn to drugs to gain a competitive edge in college and the workplace. Adderall has become an easy solution for people to remain more attentive and stay awake longer to finish projects and take tests. Adderall is a prescription medication that is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder as well as narcolepsy and can be extremely effective in alleviating these problems. However, this drug can also have serious health consequences if not taken properly. It is a controlled dangerous substance and the law treats it no different than any other drug when possessed or distributed illegally.
