Can prolonged use of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) XR cause or contribute to adrenal failure?

Maybe: All medications have side effects, but to the best of my knowledge, long term use does not lead to adrenal insufficiency.

No: What you could do is contact the manufacturer. Show them proof that you were legitimately on this medication and quite often they can mail you samples for free. There's a special form to fill out, and i believe your physician also needs to fill out a portion of the form. Don't buy it on the internet. It is a schedule ii drug. Dea can prosecute you for this without a valid prescription.

Time: If you have been off adderal for a 24-36 hour period, it is essentially out of your system. You may experience some side effects from not being on the medication, either chemical or physical dependence symptoms, but the drug is essentially gone.
