why adderall is sedating ? info Worth sharing

Thought of sharing this info. Many people wonder (including me sometimes) why adderall effect is sedating to some.



How Does It Work?


The drug is a stimulant, although it can have the opposite effects from what would be expected of a stimulant. While stimulants (like caffeine) can cause hyperactivity, when used at the doses for ADHD, Adderall has a calming effect. While the exact way Adderall produces a calming effect is not known, it is known that it affects chemicals in the brain. In general, it is used at higher, more stimulating doses when used for narcolepsy.
