Athletics: There should be no physical problem participating in athletics while taking adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine). There are ncaa rules regarding taking medications like Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and participating in sports. The ncaa can provide guidelines for documenting the need for you to take adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine).

Yes: But the higher level of competition, you have to have it medically diagnosed and cleared for use (olympics, college sports, professional etc).
