My roommate is addicted to adderall. I am really getting worried about her. She is prescribed 40mg a day but takes way more than that. We have been friends for a long time but recently moved in together. I had no idea how bad her problem was. She rarely sleeps (maybe 2 hours a night if any at all). I've walked into her room around midnight and she is taking another 20mg adderall when she has nothing to study for. She takes them to wake her up before a night of drinking. . .
Adderall - ADHD Drug Banned In Canada Remains Available In U.S.
A popular drug for treating patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has been pulled off the market in Canada after it's been linked to several sudden deaths and strokes.
However, the drug, Adderall XR, by Shire Pharmaceuticals Group Plc has not been pulled by U.S. drug safety regulators. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration refused to ban the drug because they said there's just not enough evidence the drug is clearly responsible for the deaths.
Patients in Canada who have the drug are being asked to turn it into a pharmacy so it can be safely destroyed.
Drug Warnings: Adderall Side Effects and Risks
Adderall was banned from sale in Canada in February 2005 after reports of 24 deaths and 54 cases of severe cardiovascular problems were reported in the U.S. The Canadian regulatory agency found that the Adderall risk was too high to allow sale of the product. The FDA issued a MedWatch alert announcing the ban. In August, Canada allowed sales of Adderall to resume, but continues monitoring the Adderall risks and Adderall side effects.
