Brief Answer:
Adderall is an amphetamine drug

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for asking from HCM

I can understand your concern. Adderall is an amphetamine drug. The drug is a controlled drug and this drug can not be prescribed online. You have to visit a psychiatrist for evaluation first and once diagnosis of adult ADD is made then the drug can be prescribed to you.

I am sorry for your inconvenience.

Thanks and Take care
