The stimulant medication Adderall was created to help individuals with ADHD, but unfortunately it has become a frequently used recreational drug. In fact, 1 in 5 college students and 10 percent of high school students use Adderall as a study drug and it is commonly used among women age 26 to 39. Trying to quit the drug has proven for many easier said than done and most wonder what is the best way to stop take Adderall.
Depending on the severity of use, it is very likely that when you stop taking Adderall you will begin to experience withdrawal symptoms which may begin within a few hours after the last time you used the drug. The side effects of Adderall withdrawal are both physical (constipation/diarrhea, nausea, rapid heartbeat/chest pain and seizures) and psychological (anxiety, paranoia and hallucinations).
Though it is possible for some people to stop their Adderall use cold turkey or to taper off, most individuals will need to get help from a professional detox treatment in order to overcome their Adderall use.
