What is Adderall 20mg tablets?
Adderall 20mg is a medication often used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Adderall 20mg is usually used in conjunction with therapy and other treatments. In some cases, Adderall is used to treat narcolepsy, and it can be prescribed to help people stay awake.
Sometimes it can be difficult for Adderall abusers to admit that they have a problem. But admission isn’t always necessary — in many cases, you may be able to tell if a loved one is abusing or addicted to Adderall because they exhibit some of the distinct physical and psychological signs.

- Weight loss

- Incomplete thoughts
- Aggressive behavior, such as violent outbursts or risk taking

Adderall abuse becomes Adderall addiction when the abuser is physically or psychologically dependent on Adderall. It may be easiest to tell if you are addicted to Adderall by looking for signs of withdrawal.
