Either way, after the jump you'll find a list of Five Things You Didn't Know About Adderall.

Will it make my teeth fall out? Where do I get it? Your questions, and Alex's useful answers, after the jump. (Excuse his spelling: he's a poet.)

We don't want you to panic, obviously, but this is how things will play out.
