Adderall is a form of amphetamines, so is a controlled substance. It is not a narcotic. Some people use the term, narcotic, to refer to any controlled substance, but this is an improper use of the term. The term, narcotic, refers to several different drugs that cause drowsiness (narcosis), and amphetamines are the opposite. Therefore, Adderall is not considered a narcotic from a medical perspective, although may be included in a layman's use of the term.
