CBD News Aggregator – If you have a child, sibling, or any other family member, with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Adderall must have become a household name for you.
Adderall is the brand name of a combination drug (Dextroamphetamine and Amphetamine), which is often prescribed by doctors to treat certain symptoms, like hyperactivity and impulse control, associated with ADHD and Narcolepsy, a sleep disorder marked by excessive daytime sleepiness.
This class of drugs, categorized as central nervous system stimulants or psychostimulants, is usually preferred over non-stimulant alternatives by most medical practitioners to effectively treat ADHD, which affects around 6.1 million children in the US alone.
By changing the levels of certain natural substances in the brain, Adderall helps boost an individual’s memory, ability to focus, and remain attentive to an activity or task. It also helps control behavioral issues, like impulsiveness, and enhances one’s organizational abilities. It also helps cancer patients overcome fatigue, associated with the disease. That’s why these are also called neuroenhancers.
