Possibly: You should contact yoiur doctor about this. Why do are you considering Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) at this age? Are you considering Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) because you have a decrease in yoiur level of arousal or initiation? If you do not have heart disease, high blood pressure, compromised kidney function or other contraindications you may be able to take adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine).
