AnesteeziaI think it's bullshit. Society will do anything to take a short-cut and make their lives easier. That's also why America has become so fat.
G-raff.I started taking medication for my ADD in 7th grade. since then it has made a tremendous difference with my working capabilities and overall focus. I had to try a series of different meds till I found one that worked but now I've been on the same medication for about a year and a half now. I don't see how its bullshit if it helps kids and makes a difference in their overall focus and helps them do better at school.
chacha33I was diagnosed when I was like 8-9. I never take my meds cuz the dosage is way to small to make a difference with my fat ass so I just sell em to freshman
PachankzAdderall is pharmaceutical grade meth in a pill. The side effects mentioned above are similar to the effects of meth hence the term written right on the pill, mamphetamine salt. Salt is a crystal. Picking skin, losing weight, eyes darting, hyper focus, umm hello wake up people. Throw that garbage away and never look back. That stuff is pure trash .
ChillTeenDad420ADD is real. Just because you don't understand something doesn't make it not exist. There's physical differences in the brains of ADD/ADHD patients, and the evidence keeps piling up The important thing moving forward is how to treat each individual patient. Does amphetamine salt treat each patient equally? nope. I'd imagine in the near future there will be individualized treatments for each individual with different cocktails and dosages of different drugs.
But this brings up a cultural issue. What does "productivity" in society mean, and what is it worth? Is it worth subjecting people to addiction in order to "cure" deficits in, what it really comes down to as, productivity? I dont fuckin know, give me ur meds tho i'm tryna get lit
Sno.you diagnosed with ADD or ADHD?
