No: As a controlled substance, adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) needs a triplicate prescription and cannot be e-scribed. A close relationship with your doctor is important when using these meds

Some thoughts: Adderall is a schedule 2 controlled substance, monitored closely from the point of creation to final user. Any physician who prescribes S 2 meds without a thorough in person evaluation, testing and charted documentation can have his/her DEA license revoked and his/her medical license restricted or cancelled. Possession without a proper prescription can sent you to jail. So the answer=no.
