Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Yes Adderall can cause pressure in the head and headaches.
Adderall is a central nervous system stimulant. This type of stimulant can lead to a migraine-like headache rather quickly.
I suggest you to use painkillers like ibuprofen three times a day for relief.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
