Adderall Addiction on College Campuses

According to the 2009 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, college students had a growing problem with Adderall addiction. Individuals abusing Adderall were three times as likely to use marijuana, eight times more likely to use cocaine, and alcohol abuse was also a common trend. Many college students with access to Adderall get it through a friend that has a prescription.

Adderall, used nonmedically, is associated with the following risks:

  • Seizures
  • Hypertension
  • Stroke
  • Heart Attack
  • Psychosis and Aggressive Behavior

Adderall abuse also can cause other issues. Some users report a condition that is similar to Raynaud's syndrome.

Like other amphetamines, Adderall withdrawal happens within 24 hours of a person's last dose. With high-dose abusers, 88% of people experience extreme withdrawal. Symptoms include drug craving, depression, fatigue, and an increased appetite. Adderall withdrawal typically can last as long as three to four weeks.
