Difficulty in focusing, had taken adderall as a kid for dsylexia. Can I take it now?

i am 21 and I have been reading on adderall quite a bit over the last 6 months and learned a fair amount the reason i did this was because a long time a ago when i 16 i had taken adderall and it helped me overcome many of my social and work, school related issues this was a major help in my life because the fact i have a dyslexia so it is very hard for me to start focusing and stay focused in everything. This normally had lead me to give up on work, and schoolwork which take a big effect on my grades even with the help of my school aids my question is this is what i understand right where adderall or another drug could possible help me fix my inability to focus and should i talk to my doctor about treatment or do have another solution to my problem

Welcome to Healthcaremagic,
Adderall contains Amphetamine salt and is known to produce drug abuse and drug dependency.
It is better to consult your doctor and on advise of the doctor it should be used.
