Snorting Adderall?

 

Snorting Adderall? I have a neuro surgeon who has recently tld me that the epidemic of kids and adults crushing up IR adderall and snorting it up their nose, and this has him extreamely concerned. He put it to me simply. “It simply fries your neurons” and can cause “permanent damage”. There are no long term studies to corroborate my neurologist friend, but he is the best cardiologist I know and I believe him.

 

 

Some prople snort the  Adderall to get higher, faster, and the rush and drip associated with cocaine and methamphetamine. Using this method,  the brain and nasal passages  receives the entire dosage nearly instantly. This defeats the purpose of consuming Adderall XR (since the release is no longer extended), and suddenly 5mg of Adderall XR can affect your body like an even larger does of Adderall IR (instant release). The lesser danger in snorting Adderall is that it absorbs into the body in a way that the manufacturer did not intend for it to do. According to my neurologist friend, the BIG danger is that, in simple terms, you are “burning your brain” the neuro toxins produced by snorting can cause permanent damage. As there are no studies to confirm long term effects of snorting adderall, let’s talke my neurologist-friend’s word for it. Chew them if you must, but do not snort them.  

 

Snorting Adderall Increases Adderall Effects

This means that snorting the Adderall:

Becomes easier to experience harmful effects from, including increasing the risk of overdose.

Can absorb in greater amounts into the body than would occur with an oral dose.

Can absorb too rapidly into the body.

 

Possible Health Problems From Snorting Adderall

 

Adderall has a variety of inactive ingredients in it that help give consistency to the pill and help it to dissolve at a regular rate inside the stomach. These ingredients are not always water-soluble, and can simply remain in the nose after the pill has been snorted. This can lead to a variety of health consequences, ranging from allergic reactions to sinus infections. Also, snorting pills has been shown to lead to a build up of some of this insoluble residue in the lining of the lungs, meaning that over time, snorting pills can seriously impair breathing.

 

Some of the side effects that Adderall can cause are more likely to occur when the medication snorted

 

Difficulty sleeping

Loss of appetite

Stomach pain

Dizziness

Vomiting/nausea

Rapid heartrate/sweats

Rare side effects are more likely to occur when snorting Adderall as well, some of which can require a doctor’s assistance. These side effects include:

 

Mood disturbances, such as anger or depression

Irregular or rapid heart beat

Severe allergic reactions

Blurred vision

Confusion

 Mixing Adderall

 

When people abuse Adderall, they often abuse other drugs, particularly alcohol and marijuana. Since the Adderall has a stronger effect than it would have if taken by mouth, combining other drugs with Adderall becomes particularly dangerous. The chances of having a dangerous drug interaction or severe side effects skyrocket. Although alcohol is a depressant, it can have a accelerated  reaction with Adderall if the medication is snorted, leading to aggressive behavior, blackouts, rapid heart rate, and flushing. In some cases, the combination can even cause death, if the two substances are combined in sufficient amounts. Many times, combining other drugs with Adderall can lead to hospitalization, as the side effects become quite overwhelming. adderall has increasingly becoming known as a party drug due to its ability to have high endurance during drinking bouts and sexual encounters.

 

ADDERALL ADDICTION 

 

Since Adderall is an amphetamine, it is a drug that people can become physically and psychologically dependent on. This risk is lessened when the drug is only taken by mouth and under a doctor’s supervision, but it increases greatly when the drug is snorted, particularly by people that have no medical need for it. Dependence on Adderall can lead to confusion, memory problems, and mood disturbances when the medication wears off. Tolerance increases more rapidly to Adderall when it is snorted, meaning that therapeutic doses may no longer have the same effect that they used to, and a person may end up going through their prescription must faster than they intended, leading to physical withdrawal. Withdrawal symptoms can be extremely severe, sometimes resulting in a near-comatose state.

 Simply put, if you are snorting adderall, you are abusing adderall. Either try to find help, or turn to natural and safer alternatives to this very unwise practice. If one of your kids or friends has orange color in their nose, this is a tell tell sigh of snorting the orange instant release tablets. Take my neurosurgeons advice, don’t burn out your brain with this practice.
