Adderall Review: Awesome for a short boost, but not anything beyond that

It really would not do any justice to the brain enhancement industry if we don’t review arguably one of the most popular brain enhancers available out there on the market. However, this isn’t exactly the same. Adderall is not readily available, unlike some of the other brain enhancers that we’ve reviewed before. The only way you can really get Adderall is with a prescription from the doctor, which might be hard to get depending on which state you are in. However, there are some sites where you can get it shipped to you for a small fee.

As you can see, one of the main differences from Adderall and all the other products we’ve reviewed as well is that Adderall is not a nootropic, but a methamphetamine, and you can easily see this in its ingredients.

Overall Dose Potency: 20/20

There’s no question that Adderall is one of the most potent ‘brain pills’ available out there. There’s just something about being able to continuously do work, or study for an exam, without stopping at all for water or food, or anything else. This might be good or bad, depending on how long you’re using it for. If it’s a short term solution where you need to increase focus and productivity, go for it. However, there will be some drawbacks to your health for extended usage.

Short Term Results: 20/20

If you really want to get the most bang for your buck when trying to study for one single night, there might not be anything better than Adderall. The effects were way above anything you can achieve with a nootropic. However, at the end of a 6-hour session, we felt physically and mentally depleted. It did really help us on getting something done in a short amount of time. Productivity and motivation really is at extremely high levels, where nothing can distract you at all, and you can just keep on going continuously without stopping.

Long Term Results: 7/20

This is probably where Adderall has its drawbacks – you can’t use it for too long. There are quite a lot of side effects associated with the long-term use of Adderall. This is what hinders it from being used as a long term solution for either ADD/ADHHD or even as a brain enhancer. Most that use Adderall only use it for its temporary effects on their ability to focus. Additionally, another thing to note is that there really are no long term results from using Adderall. There are people who use it long-term, usually for ADD, but once they get off it, their symptoms come back. For brain enhancement, there is practically no use.

Side Effects: 6/20

Adderall has quite a lot of side effects – probably more than most other nootropics out there. Additionally, though, Adderall’s side effects are the most dangerous for your health. Some of these side effects include pounding heartbeats, fainting, blurred vision, chest pain, hypertension, tremors, hallucinations, and even at times, seizures. Additionally, it is very easy to get addicted to Adderall. While you might become psychologically addicted to the results you gain from nootropics, Adderall addiction is chemical.

Price/Value: 17/20

We can’t really give a number in this section due to the price of Adderall being different depending on where you get it. If you get it with a prescription from a pharmacy, from a hospital, or from an online distributor, the prices might differ. However, in terms of value, there really is some value to a brain enhancer that can produce immense amounts of focus over a few hours – a feat unrivaled even by the best nootropics out there. Just remember, don’t take it for extended periods.


There’s a reason why Adderall is still one of the most used – if not the most used – brain enhancer available out there at the moment: it works. Detractors will say that there are better alternatives out there, and they’re right. However, if you’re really for a short term boost in focus that cannot be matched by almost anything else, Adderall will do the job for you. However, if you do plan to use brain enhancers as a daily supplement, there are many better options available out there. Adderall simply offers no long term benefits to its users, and even using it long term will definitely be detrimental to your health.

If you’re looking for a short, unmatchable boost, go for Adderall. If you’re looking for a daily supplement that will increase your cognitive performance, as well as create a better-working brain over a long period of time, you might want to consider nootropics instead.
