Symptoms: Worries about husband

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for your question. Yes, it is quite normal to have the medication adjusted to the extended release if the regu lar strength is not having effect. If your husband has a documented diagnosis of ADHD, then he can be treated with adderall. Adderall is an amphetamine class of medication which can be addictive. If your husband takes his medication according to his prescription, and is regularly monitored by his doctor, his ADHD can safely be treated.Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
