Adderall crash is a phenomenon of “crashing” or coming down from the stimulating effects of this particular substance. The longer they were on the drug, the more significant the potential of a crash will be. While not everyone notices a crash or has symptoms, many individuals do. One major problem is that most psychiatrists are not aware of this “crash” phenomenon. Think about the saying “What Goes Up, Must Come Down”.
This saying applies perfectly to taking Adderall – while on it you essentially stimulate activity in your brain. This results in a “high” level of brain activity and when the drug wears down, the high activity ceases and they return to normalcy. But before returning to normalcy, many people experience a “low” – in other words their brain is almost the exact opposite of feeling “high” – this is a “low” or crash (the opposite end of the spectrum).
