In brief: Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine)
Elevated bilirubin is not listed as a side effect of adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine).
Other medications such as Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen can elevate the bilirubin. A harmless entity called gilbert's can also cause an elevated bilirubin. See your doctor for elevation.

In brief: Unlikely
Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) (mixed-salts amphetamine) is metabolized in the liver, but adverse effects on liver function leading to bilirubin elevations are quite rare, at most.
Alcohol or acetominophen (tylenol) would be more likely culprits. However, if it occurred after starting adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) should reverse promptly with discontinuation, so easy to test. Highly unlikely to be dangerous.
