    I have a bud whose been on it and claims he needs it to function. His current doc wont perscribe it for him anymore (why I dont know) so hes going to someone who'll give it to him. Im wondering if this stuff can be harmful for you because Im worried about the guy. I dont know why he needs it, he goes to work everyday, pays his bill, takes care of his pets, etc so maybe its in his head that he needs it ? Theres got to be a reason why his current doc is not giving it to him.

    It's speed. Granted, with a script, it's legal speed.

    You know I'm really not sure but I think the stuff is more or less like speed. It works great if you need it. But I do believe it's habit forming. And it can definitely be abused.

    Its an amphetamine. Its pretty addictive. If he tried to come off it he would be pretty lethargic. He must have spooked the doc and made him think he was abusing it. If he takes it fairly responsible you can function highly on it. People can get hooked easy and he could go off the rails making sure he gets more of it.

    It can raise your blood pressure and can make you edgy. Often klonopin is prescribed with it to control the side effects on your emotions.

    To someone with the brain chemistry that requires the use of Adderall, the "speed" actually helps calm and focus the individual taking it for truly therapeutic reasons. For someone with "normal" brain chemistry, it acts as an upper. Not for someone with acute adhd.

    Next time you see your bud, grab him by the neck and give him a slap....then yell at him that if he had any self respect he'd ditch the Addy and start smoking crack.

    Some forms of narcolepsy are treated with this sort of drug. They don't fall asleep at the table, they just can't stay alert. If you really need it you're as calm as anyone. If you don't the dose will make your heart pound out of your chest.

    According to my research, your friend probably started taking more Adderall than prescribed because it's easy to quickly build up a tolerance to it. He probably figured out that stopping it abruptly would cause certain withdrawal symptoms (which he exaggerates as "not being able to function") for some time... probably until his doc normally would have renewed his prescription, but in this case your friend most likely pissed him off or at least worried him by taking more than what was prescribed so the doc decided to not write him any more prescriptions. He should probably prescribe a smaller amount for him to slowly quit all together, unless he already did that and your friend continued taking too many anyway. Bottom line:

    Wife takes it. Saved her life. She went back to being the girl I met in college again.

    Without it, we wouldn't have made it.

    May I ask how it saved her?

    I have seen it work beautifully in patients, and a disaster in others. As Dice would say, "it's a TOUCHY situation".
