Your doctor will never prescribe this medication if you've ever had any negative reaction to similar stimulant drugs, and your doctor may also avoid prescribing Adderall medication if you are prone to substance abuse or you appear to become agitated by this drug.

Adderall medication: Special information if you are pregnant or breast-feeding
