Dependency upon this drug begins to manifest when users no longer need the drug and abruptly stop using it. Adderall withdrawal is a rude awakening, and the primary cause of dependence.

Withdrawal Symptoms

The severity of Adderall withdrawal symptoms is based on several variables, including the general health and genetics of the individual. Although for most people with Adderall dependency, the withdrawal symptoms usually subside without complications within a week or so, it is impossible to specifically predict who will suffer the most and how long the suffering will last.

  • Extreme fatigue or lethargy and the desire to lie down, but are unable to sleep.
  • Confusing and unreasonable feelings of anxiety
  • Severe depression and irrational suicidal thoughts
  • Uncontrollable anger, aggressiveness and in some cases, violent behavior
  • Paranoia

This drug was primarily used for Attention Deficit Disorder in children. The significant difference in the effects this drug has on adults versus children is that it takes longer to leave the body in adults. Also, physicians prescribe larger doses and longer treatment periods for adults than they do for children.
