Adderall is a stimulant designed primarily to treat ADHD and other attention disorders. Adderall is a combination of the drugs dextroamphetamine and amphetamine. These drugs work to keep someone focused and attentive. Adderall is used to treat ADHD and other attention disorders. Amphetamines are DEA Schedule II (Two) drugs.
Drugs similar to Adderall are:
These drugs work by stimulating the central nervous system. As the stimulation begins to fade around six hours on average, it can leave the person taking Adderall feeling tired. It is this tiredness that can lead to poor driving. So people who are on the downside of the pharmacological effects of Adderall can become tired and that is when they get pulled over. It is not the drug causing the poor driving. However, that is not what the police or prosecutors believe.
The best thing you can do if you take Adderall or any other medication for ADHD or other attention related illnesses is to NOT tell a police officer you take it. You do not have to answer an officer if they ask you if you take any medication because the Fifth Amendment to the constitution says so.
