MLB Claims Aderall Is Perfromance Enhancing Drug

The MLB considers Adderall to be a performance enhancing drug.

Adderall is most commonly used in treatment for Attention Deficit Disorder.  Miguel Tejada , of the Kansas City Royals ,recently tested positive for the drug and was handed a 105-game suspension.  Tejada had a prescription for Aderall and was waiting for a ”therapeutic-use” exemption that would state he had attention deficit disorder and could take the drug without reprocussions.

The drug would just be a performance equalizer for a person who suffers from ADD, but to someone without the disorder it serves as a performance enhancer.  Aderall triggers the release of adrenaline causing an increase in energy, focus and concentration.

Tejada’s 105-game suspension is the third longest non-lifetime suspension handed out by the MLB.
