Vyvanse vs. Adderall: What to know

 2 months ago       35 Views

The active ingredients in Adderall are a combination of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine salts.

Dextroamphetamine is part of the class of drugs called amphetamines. Amphetamines are stimulants of the central nervous system.

Doctors prescribe amphetamines to people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) because this class of medication acts on norepinephrine and dopamine. These two chemicals occur in the brain and are associated with symptoms of ADHD.

Adderall is available in immediate-release tablets and extended-release capsules (Adderall XR). While both types can help treat ADHD, people also use immediate-release Adderall to treat narcolepsy, which is a sleep disorder.
