Use of the drug is common in many places. For instance, a study that was conducted in 119 reputable USA colleges and Universities and published in Addiction revealed that at least 25% of students in these institutions take Adderral to help them study more effectively.

Extended consumption off Adderral leads to patients developing tolerance to the substance and a possible Adderall addiction.

Failure of taking the regular dose leads to development of severe withdrawal effects, which make many people unable to stop taking the substance. Stopping to take the drug abruptly or `cold turkey’ is especially considered dangerous since it may lead to dangerous withdrawal effects.

Thanks so much for both reading my piece and sharing your support.
Given your body of work, both singularly and with Fred Newman, I'm honored.
I've spent some time on your blog and plan to spend more. Your analysis of the DSM-5 is also very helpful.
