How is Ritalin/Adderall Abuse Detected?
The sooner that stimulant abuse is identified, the more likely the user can be effectively treated. Abusive behavior is often clandestine, though, so sometimes the only way to spot it is to look for external signs of drug use.
Warning signs that someone might be abusing or addicted to Adderall or Ritalin include:
- Excitability, irritability, or agitation
- Difficulty communicating thoughts
- Disorientation or confusion
- Risky or impulsive behavior
- Memory problems
- Loss of interest in social activities, relationships, or hygiene
- Weight loss
- Fatigue or changes in sleeping behavior
- Work or school difficulties
- Financial or legal problems
