Aderral is a combination drug containing salts of the two enantiomers of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD and narcolepsy.
ADHD is a mental disorder of the neurodevelopment type. While Narcolepsy on the other hand is a long-term neurological disorder that involves a decreased ability to regulate sleep-wake cycles of a person.

This is why most college students take the drug. It helps them stay up late for them to be able to study. This is what they call “study drug”.
Some students use this when they party at night. It helps them stay active and awake.
Taking too much of this drug can also lead the users to potentially suffer dizziness, fever, seizures, paranoia, shortness of breath, swelling and itching.
