Adderall is a popular prescription medication. It has been used largely for the treatment of ADD and ADHD, and they have used it to calm and soothe. With Adderall, it has largely been used in children with these disorders, and in that capacity, it has been successful. However, as far as weight loss goes, it would be an off the label use.

This is not to say that it doesn’t work. Actually, some studies have suggested it could. Adderall is ultimately speaking an amphetamine class prescription.

It works to calm the person with ADD or ADHD while increasing the blood pressure and energy among other things of the normal person.


Prescription Phentermine is also an amphetamine, and it works to stimulate the central nervous system, therefore suppressing appetite.

However, one should keep in mind the fact that these amphetamines also come with some serious dependency issues and side effects that can be quite daunting to say the least.

This being said, if you want to use Adderall for weight loss, it would be the same theoretically as using some other popular prescriptions. It would be potentially addictive and dangerous. But Adderall has not actually been proven for this off the label use.
