The combination drug Dextroamphetamine and Amphetamine (sold as Adderall) can have devastating side-effects if used outside of a doctor's prescription, care, and supervision.

The National Library of Medicine keeps a product information page on this drug.

Although we were not able to find any information about brain damage caused directly or indirectly by Adderrall, you should really consult with a medical professional if you are concerned about addictive behavior, side-effects, or the long-term effects of using this drug.

If you or someone you care about is having problems with an addiction, please contact the local service office for Louisiana's Office of Behavioral Health - Addictive Disorders Services for help and guidance.
