Adderall is a combination of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine that is used to treat narcolepsy and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
In recent years, the number of children in the U.S. being treated with prescription Adderall has increased drastically. With this recent inflation, it raises the question if Adderall is over prescribed.
Some may argue that in many cases ADHD is a mistaken diagnosis for children who are simply immature or undisciplined; on the contrary, others may argue that critics greatly exaggerate the number of incorrect diagnoses because awareness of the medication has grown significantly.
