Adderall has specific indication in a disease called as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), which has specific diagnostic criteria. Adult ADHD will need a thorough assessment by your doctor. In the absence of ADHD, Adderall does not have role. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) has more role in adult ADHD, than medication.
