Adderall is a prescription drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat attention deficit disorder with hyperactivity. Adderall is sometimes prescribed to treat depression. Since the FDA has not approved Adderall specifically for this usage, it is considered “off-label.” Adderall is a combination drug containing Amphetamine and Dextroamphetamine.

Amphetamine and Dextroamphetamine are both stimulants of the amphetamine class. Adderall is believed to work in cases of depression by increasing transmission between neurons.
