Dr. Edward Fruitman, M.D. answers a question: How addictive is Adderall?
Trifecta Health (http://trifectahealthnyc.com) specializes in the treatment of Adult Attention Deficit Disorder. We are often asked whether or not stimulant medications are addictive, and if so, how addictive are they? Adderral and Ritalin are classified as a schedule two substance which makes them medications with a very high abuse potential. In short, yes, stimulant medications can be addictive if not taken as recommended by a doctor.
Because of there addictive properties, many Doctors are reluctant to prescribe stimulant medications. Here at Trifecta, we believe that when these medications are taken for the right reasons, in clinical doses, and under the supervision of a Doctor, it is far less far less likely that substance abuse will follow.
If you think you or someone you know may be suffering from the symptoms of Adult Attention Deficit Disorder, call to schedule a consultation today.
