I personally take Adderall to help me treat resistant depression, but I've found that my social anxiety also works wonders. I take a very small dose of 5 mg when I feel really down in the dumps. I also have a mixture of schizoid and avoiding personality disorder traits, so taking this medicine really helps when I need to be social.
I used to be very anti-amphetamines before I used the medication. Having researched them and talked to my psychiatrist about them, he told me that they were among the safest drugs to be used properly. The reason many people have problems with Adderall is that they are misusing it. I can certainly see how people could become addicted to this medicine with relative ease.
If you are a person with addictive tendencies, this is probably not a good option for you. I'm still limited to taking it when I absolutely need it. I categorize needing as being insignificant social situations and feeling deeply suicidal. I don't like taking it often or at high doses, because I don't want my body to become conditioned to this powerful medicine.
In addition, there is sometimes a bad Adderall crash that some people may not be able to handle–even at low doses. In my opinion, this accident is still considerably more favorable than the withdrawal of antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication.
