In brief: It's possible, yes.

The two that are most common( in the question asked ) are irritability and depression.
In spite of the fact Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) has been used as an adjunct medication in the treatment of depression it can also cause depression. As far as sweating goes, that would be a rare side effect and most likely only occur only when withdrawal of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is sudden.
