Adderall Side-Effects and Other Alternatives

One of the key factors in achieving success in whatever field you maybe into is the ability to focus. The act of being able to concentrate all your attention and effort in doing things inevitably yields to success, on whatever form it may be.  To some, such disposition is easily achieved, but for others it requires more than just time and effort; there are instances that having focus or attention is even impossible. 

It is true to people suffering from an AttentionDeficit Hyperactivity Disorder or commonly known as ADHD. This type of disorder is one of the most common childhood brain disorders which likely continue from childhood to adolescent stage and beyond. Such state is characterized primarily by having or showing a difficulty staying focused and paying attention. The fluctuation of behavior and hyperactivity is likewise displayed by a person suffering from such disorder, thus symptoms as such are said to be hindrances for people to be successful, in school, work or life in its totality.

However, contrary to some of the assumed outcome, there are people suffering from ADHD which are living a successful life in their chosen field. The likes of Sir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson, Katherine Ellison and Michele Rodriguez”1 to name a few, are some of the notable persons who succeeded in life despite the presence of ADHD. Needless to say, that it is with their own effort and the support system around them, that they are able to stay on track and continue living life to the fullest. 

For a person suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, between personal effort and support system, prescribed drugs would always be present. One of the most distinguished medications which are being widely distributed today for ADHD and other neurological disorder is Adderall. It “is a psychostimulant drug of the phenethylamine class used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. Adderall is also used as a performance and cognitive enhancer, and recreationally as an aphrodisiac and euphoriant.”2

Adderall, as a combination of two stimulant drugs dextroamphetamine and amphetamine is generally tolerated and effective in suppressing the symptoms of ADHD. However there are some known side effects of the particular drug which prompts some concern among consumers. It is not advisable for use, especially if a person has a heart disease, severe agitation or anxiety and even for individual with a solid drug addiction history. 

This drug in particular is not for everyone to carelessly use, serious side-effects may surface if not used properly or without any medical guidance. Fast or pounding heartbeat, shortness of breath, chest pain, excessive tiredness, seizures, hallucination, and aggressive behavior, changes in vision, fever, stomach pain and nausea are some of the common bodily reaction that people may surface as a side effect.
As previously known, Adderall works as a stimulant affecting the central nervous system, as it helps regulate the chemicals present in the brain. For people wanting to meet a higher or focused mental state, without the risk of any side-effects or of abuse and dependence on the said medicine, alternatives are possible. One of the very best ways for Adderall alternative is the update of lifestyle which would primarily involve a well-balanced ADHD management plan and of course series of therapies. Secondly, you can always try some natural products, such as cognitive enhancing supplements which are known to have no side-effects due to their natural and organic compositions. And lastly, in the market along with Adderall are other non-stimulant ADHD medications which act in a same way of Adderall.

Having to consider all the side-effects and alternatives for ADHD medication, it would still be wise to value the suggestions and recommendations of experts. Consult your physician first before withdrawing from Adderall medication in preference for known alternatives.
