can you become addicted to adderall?
Ive had a prescription for about a year and honestly I didnt get it because I needed to focus, I got it because its fun as hell, just wondering now if there is a chance that im dependent on it. Because I feel fricking miserable when I dont take it.

I know several women who are addicted to it for weight loss reasons. This might have more to do witch body dismorphia but the results are them looking like skeletons and chainsmoking

That's because, deep down, you are just miserable

re: can you become addicted to adderall?
No "addicted", but dependant... and it has diminishing returns the longer and more consistently you take it.

What I do is go cold turkey on vacations to "reset" my body. Enjoy feeling tired and sleeping - it's fun. Take a vacation to a beach or stay in a hotel with a fantastic pool so you can just crash and read and crash.

I also limit myself to no more than 40mg on the absolutely most brutal work days and no more than 15 mg on normal workdays.

Weekends I (usually) don't use any. Since weed is legal where I live, I have found that the more cognitive and "upper" strains of sativa make a nice and natural substitute for adderall when we go to social functions. It gives me a lift and makes me chatty without using the adderall on the weekends.

It's an amphetamine, so yeah, you should be good to go.

Nope. You can’t get addicted to an amphetamine. No way. Nope. Zero shot.

Well anything is addictive. If you can’t function without the absense of it disrupting your life, then it’s an addiction. If you don’t need it, I don’t reccommend using it.

You enjoy taking it.
It makes you feel good.
You feel miserable without it.
You're reaching out about it.

Adderall up and you got an addiction.

Careful with that stuff man. I've got a 28 yr. old stepdaughter that fried her brain with that stuff 5 years ago. Granted, she was abusing the stuff by taking way more than she should have and that was unknown to us at the time.

The mental health folks explained to her mother and I that abusing this drug can short circuit the brain and it's a crapshoot if people can recover----some do so fully, some partially and others, pffft.

She's had several psychotic episodes over the years and been institutionalized 5 times already for observation and to try different forms of treatment to get things more on an even keel.

I think for people that really need the drug to function, and taken according to the RX, it can be a help. But to take it recreationally, or if you don't really need it can be asking for trouble.

In order to avoid addiction to Adderall you should just balance it with a a dose or two of heroin each day. Your addiction to Adderall will virtually eliminated.

You should probably take a nice long break and see how hard it is and how bad you feel. I'm sure your body / mind is dependent to some degree, let yourself reset, addiction can creep on you.
