Bad?: Every medication has risks and benefits. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is a combination of amphetamines, available by prescription for adhd. It can help those with adhd, ; is not "bad" if used as prescribed. However, since it is a stimulant, some take it recreationally, and/or without a prescription to study, stay awake, etc. This is "bad": illegal ; possibly medically harmful.
