How To Get an Adderall Prescription at Lake Conway Clinic

Adderall is a central nervous system stimulant that is made from a combination of 2 amphetamine salts. The drug is most often prescribed to treat narcolepsy and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Adderall is sometimes used to treat depression and obesity.

Adderall increases dopamine and norepinephrine levels in the central nervous system.

  • Norepinephrine has an effect on energy production, brain activity, and memory.
  • Dopamine is responsible for motivation to act, learning, memory.

Only neurologists, psychiatrists, or family doctors can prescribe Adderall. You will need to visit the clinic to receive a prescription in person.

  • Make a list of the symptoms. You should write down details of your symptoms, including which ones bother you the most and when they started.
  • Tell your doctor about all your diseases and conditions. Heart diseases, anxiety disorders, and weight problems significantly influence treatment choices.
  • Tell your doctor about all the medications you are taking.

Be prepared to get tested. Your doctor may order additional tests to make your diagnosis.

Adderall Addiction and Withdrawal Symptoms

The risk of developing an addiction is insignificant when Adderall is taken as prescribed by your doctor. Withdrawal symptoms occur only in people who take large doses of Adderall.
