Currently, there are somewhere between 5 and 7 million children in America diagnosed with ADD, or Attention Deficit Disorder. Some of them have been fed small doses of amphetamine since they four or five years old. And that’s freaking out a whole lot of people.

Adderall XR is already illegal in Canada due to its alleged role in kiddie heart attacks: And the drug perks that come with being diagnosed with ADD/ADHD in America may not be around forever. As more and more studies documenting widespread ADD medication abuse cause panic among the medical community, the FDA may soon tighten control over the wonderful amphetamine-based ADD medication.

That means that Adderall and Ritalin – the two perennial favorites of recreational pharmaceutical stimulant connoisseurs – may be much harder to get a hold of. The older generation ADD meds are being put under a question mark with the release of new non-amphetamine ADD drug called Strattera. This new drug’s claim to fame is that it is amphetamine free and hence, euphoria free. And according to the doctors, that’s a good thing. What a great country America is, always trying to find a way to amputate fun from anything. Apparently they don’t think that medication should be enjoyed.

The beauty of ADD lies in the fact that there is no standardized clinical test to diagnose the disorder. No one knows what causes it. The only thing the medical professionals know is that amphetamine delivered in small continuous doses relieves most of ADD’s symptoms. So the trick is to convince your shrink that you have ADD. And what’s nice is that anyone can fool the system, as long as they know what to say and how to act. It’s all very simple, really, all it takes is a bit of memorization.

I recently went undercover in America to find out just how to successfully trick a shrink into believing you are one of the 4% of the American adult population that’s suffering from ADD. And although my session didn’t go over too smoothly, I did reach my primary objective. I scored a month’s supply of Adderall XR and boy is everyone thankful. Here is my guide and tips to scoring Adderall, so that you can be as happy and hard-working as I am.

The main thing is to not overdo it with the shrink. You might feel the urge to act the part of a spastic ADD’d out freak, but no matter how strong the urge, avoid it at all costs. Remember, a psychiatrist isn’t a research scientist, he’s not observing you from a behavioral point of view. In fact, he won’t even be looking at you. That wasn’t part of his medical school training. No, his job was to memorize the DSM IV, crunch through dated psychology theories and study human anatomy. Unless they are in research, psychiatrists are programmed to respond to keywords. If asked about your expectations for the therapy session, don’t be afraid to state your primary objective: the drugs. As far as mainstream psychiatrists are concerned, there is only one cure for ADD, and it’s not through daily breathing meditation exercises.

If you fuck up and the psychiatrist begins to doubt your ADD symptoms, don’t lose your fighting spirit, just argue your point. Convince him. Say something about how your condition is fucking with your quality of life. Lay on the cheese, be defeatist. They hear that kind of act everyday of their lives, they’ll agree just so that you’d shut up. That’s what I did when he started doubting my ADD credentials: and it worked.

Psychiatrists are in it for the prescriptions. They are like acid dealers, they want to believe that the stuff they’re pushing is actually helping people get more out of life. Know this and use it against them.

To minimize risk, stick to the facts and don’t delve into episodes from your life. When was the last time someone asked you to remember 6th grade? You can’t remember, and that’s the catch. You’ll be so amused with your childhood memories that you’ll have an overwhelming urge to spill them on your shrink. Don’t: the details of that memory certainly contradict your assumed ADD persona.

Study the following sample questions and you’ll be sure to come out with an FDA certified lifetime meth subscription. All for the price of a $20 per month insurance co-payment. And all it takes is one hour of your attention.

* * *

Stick to these sample Q’s and you’ll pass the ADD test with flying colors.

Childhood & School

Q: How did you perform in grade school?

A: Average to below average. Dependant on tutors just to keep up.

Q: Any behavioral problems?

A: Yes. Talking in class. (Add frequent parent teacher conferences to address school performance for extra ADD points.)

Q: How did you do on lectures in college?

A: Poorly. Trouble attending big lectures. Frequently zoning out, doodling and conversing with classmates. (For extra points, mention that you were only accepted into a community college.)

Q: How did you perform on college exams?

A: Poorly. Frequently cheated to pass. (For a bigger punch, mention periodic self medicating with Sudafed – an over the counter stimulant.)

    how are you guys?do you know of anywhere you can get it online without perscription?thanks

  • 2. aleke  |  March 23rd, 2009 at 5:40 pm

    I tried posting some stuff about this on the newer article that links back to this one, but I don’t think it posted after all. So here’s the relevant bit:

    As far as adderall and ritalin goes, good luck. The bastards at the FDA have been recently clamping down on psychiatrists and making sure they administer a very expensive (~$3,000) 3-day, 30 hour examination. The results are very hard to fake. It’s a bitch. You have to find a psychiatrist that won’t be required to administer that test.

  • 3. Sam  |  September 19th, 2009 at 3:39 pm

    No psychiatrist necessary. Find an EXPENSIVE ordinary doctor, the kind who you have to pay up front, and say the following:

    “I just moved here from Canada, and I’ve been on Adderall and Lexapro (note: add in a non-controlled drug to sound credible) for 2 years.”

    They’ll ask you briefly about your ADHD symptoms – I just said that I surfed the net at work instead of working – and if you have high blood pressure.

    Then they’ll write you a 30 day script and say you have to come back in a month to get more. Sure, its $250 a month for the doc, $200 for the script, but all in all it was an extremely civilized procedure. At least in California…

  • 4. Bob35  |  October 22nd, 2009 at 3:53 am

    They were sentenced to 12 years hard labor. ,

  • 5. RandomGuy  |  October 24th, 2009 at 4:12 pm

    Wow, just….wow. I find it ridiculous that you are completely content with the exploitation of amphetamines. That, and you are incredibly pretentious to think you know what a psychiatrist is thinking. I feel as if the years of common intellect you’ve adorned yourself with frail in comparison to mastering of a degree.

  • 6. Jenni  |  January 2nd, 2010 at 3:32 pm

    You’ve got to be fucking kidding me. Adderall is NOT a joke and I really think this article should be taken off the internet. I was force fed that bullshit drug almost every day from the time I was 8 until I reached middle school. Then my mom decided to let me choose if I should take it daily or not. I hope you die of a drug O.D. on this shit. It is such an addictive, dangerous drug. Do not start taking it.

  • 7. pessimist  |  January 26th, 2010 at 3:06 pm

    Ritalin and Adderall is highly addictive and can potentially ruin your life. I have had several friends who abused it and used to fiend for it so badly that it may as well have been crack.

    Just because it is “legal” doesn’t mean it’s not a drug. Abusing it is basically your way of admitting defeat(/that you’re a loser) and not caring about your life.

  • 8. Lily  |  January 26th, 2010 at 5:24 pm

    You do realize that any shrink worth his shit will see right through this, right?

    I’m completing my doctorate in clinical psychology, and fakers like this REGULARLY come up in class, in seminars and in the reading. You look about as convincing as someone who shows up in the ER with non-specific, severe pain and an allergy to everything except vikes or morphine.

    It might work with some docs- there’s no doubt about it. But many will tell you no, ask for the expensive (and hard to fake) testing mentioned above or give you the absolute least amount possible and flag your chart.

    You’ll find shitty doctors with no scruples who’ll give this stuff out just about anywhere- just don’t kid yourself into thinking you fooled him.

  • 9. Thomas  |  January 29th, 2010 at 8:43 pm

    Lily, don’t kid yourself. Unless you have a lie detector, you have absolutely no idea who is telling the truth and who is not.

    You could have a patient who really needs Adderall and gives you the answers this guy did, but then deny him completely b/c you think you always know when people are lying? Gimme a break man.

  • 10. manny  |  February 1st, 2010 at 8:04 am

    I Faked my ADD and sure enough i got the aderrall. but the sad part is that alot of the things i said to the shrink were true…

    now im fucked up in the head! what started as a game ended up fucking me in the ass.
    makes me wanna cry.

    and for the tards who say that they can see right through this as a lie, you’re full of shit.
    there is no real diagnosis to add! anything you say that has to do with trouble paying attention, a shrink will fall for it..

    the idiot believed everthing i said, i didnt even break a sweat. this was easier than playing the first level of mario brothers super nintedo as a 3 year old! thats a fucken challenge. faking this shit is an easy fun game haha.The Docs get mad cuz we make them seem like jokes.

  • 11. jenny  |  February 1st, 2010 at 2:59 pm

    i am worried because i am bipolar and surely do have add but because of my drug abuse past i’m scared my shrink will think i’m just drug-seeking, when really i am starting school after bouncing around aimlessly for 20+ yrs…and am scared i will screw it up because i cannot pay attention in a subject with i abhore (math) – this is the reason i was a good student in my creative classes such as english lit – but barely passed everything else – also frequently got booted from high school due to lateness and forgetting assignments, etc..i am willing to undergo the strict testing – i have no doubt they will find me with severe add – but am worried they will deny me treatment because of my drug past…gimme a break – if i wanted to get high i’d just go grab a gram of bitch – i NEED to do well in this school now my future and my son’s – depend on it.

  • 12. liz  |  February 15th, 2010 at 2:26 pm

    yeah thats why the doctors are prescribing strattera…! I am on it and it does have some weird effects too. I get tingly and then it is easier to focus but sometimes I still just focus on the wrong things a.k.a. the ceiling. When it is in full effect i am staring at the teacher. works very well with anxiety too.

  • 13. Myf  |  March 9th, 2010 at 4:40 pm

    hahaha I think I know who really wrote this

  • 14. Ink Sic  |  April 30th, 2010 at 8:52 am

    I can’t believe some of the negative comments on here. Ok, it’s a drug. That’s no secret. So is Tylenol, Ibuprofen, and benadryl. The fact that people who aren’t prescribed this drug still enjoy it seems to be the biggest issue with it in our society, BUT….. Think,for a moment, about who is using and why. Mostly College student, who use adderall to help focus and study for test, and a whooole lot of chunky people who want to lose weight. These are very innocent understanable reasons to use a drug. Now crack heads, meth heads, heroin addicts, these are people who are usually using, and destroy themselves, for the sole purpose of a temporary escape. A ‘High’. And often times at the cost of losing friends and family. I think people need to keep some perspective on this. Factor in the Pros, with the Cons. You can pick and choose the negative in ANYTHING! Some Preists molest little boys, does that mean that the church is bad? Mishandeled meat can give you food poison, does that mean that chicken is bad?

  • 15. Ash  |  May 19th, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    Way to go, comment 14. We need more people like you. Open-minded, understanding, and willing to see both sides of the situation without bias. Kudos.

  • 16. thegreat  |  May 26th, 2010 at 5:16 pm

    how long before a test, say the SAT, should one wait prior to consuming the pill? and how many mg’s should a person of 130lbs take?

  • 17. Vince  |  September 22nd, 2010 at 9:09 am

    This is a ridiculous article it should be taken down. There are plenty of people, including myself, who do suffer from the symptoms of ADD. This article is a slap in the face to people who actually need anti-ADD drugs like Adderall and Vyvanse. Unlike people who intend to use this article I DID have trouble in elementary/highschool/beginning of college. Vyvanse is allowing me to actually stay focused on my work and I think it is helping me work toward getting better grades and being able to focus on tasks at hand. ADD is a real disorder, just because it has been over diagnosed does not mean that the true ADD sufferers do not exist!

  • 18. Vince  |  September 22nd, 2010 at 9:13 am

    and thank you Comment #8, that is so true.

  • 19. pk  |  October 6th, 2010 at 12:16 pm

    First, there is no cure for ADHD. There is only treatment of the symptoms.

    Secondly, psychiatrists know that other things like exercise, meditation, coaching help reduce the symptoms.

    Finally, if you’re jerking people around to get drugs you are probably either trying to self medicate for what might be a real condition or you are a bigger @ss than the doctors you mock.

  • 20. Marti  |  October 11th, 2010 at 9:56 am

    wow! the answers to these questions are all true for me. I took ritalin as a child, and wanted desparately to be taken off of it, so that I could prove that I didn’t need it. Now, I want adderall,. I do go to a community college, and parent teacher conferences always sucked ass because they were talking crap about me….

  • 21. Nick  |  October 20th, 2010 at 11:21 am

    Hey I actually have add, got tested for 4 hours and was just honest. Doctors see people that really have it and that the meds work on them, so it’s not going to be illegal. This just means we are going to have to deal with the fact that as a species we need abusable shit.

    This is mostly a comedy article and probably 99% of readers wouldn’t even think about actually taking its advice. And Finally, adderall is pretty much designed so that an adult that takes it and doesn’t need it can figure out, whoa, every time I take this shit it makes me feel like I drank five cups of coffee, maybe I should stop. Xr and vyvanase are even worse, giving someone vyvanase especially is as mean as giving them a bottle of datura. The more widespread adderall use becomes the more it’ll be obvious that we cant or shouldn’t be using it to be lawyers and doctors—this is already totally necessary but the public doesn’t really understand it. Also lol at the guy asking for mg dose of adderall in the comments

  • 22. Nick  |  October 20th, 2010 at 11:24 am

    Also I fit literally every symptom here, that’s why it’s funny. It doesn’t matter because the tests they give you can actually detect if you have it or not. It’s the most studied disorder except GED and depression, it’s dumb to think you know more about it than experts.

  • 23. Nikita  |  October 26th, 2010 at 3:28 am

    There will always be people looking for answers on ‘taboo’ subjects, and there will always be people exiling them because of their own fears.

    Guess that’s why we’re all at

  • 24. Pat  |  November 7th, 2010 at 7:59 pm

    I agree with the majority of people on here, I am one of the 4% of American adults who was diagnosed with ADHD. No one knows what it’s like to have this “disease” unless you have really had it. You don’t know how it feels to not sit still for more than 30 minutes at a time, can’t stand still, get fidgety, have to move something on your body. Not being able to read more than 10 pages in a book in one sitting, then not remembering what you read and having to read it again. Not comprehending a question. Not having good grades in school, because you can not pay attention in class. I have recently gone to The Evergreen State College to find out what college life was like, I stayed over there for about two weeks, made some friends, and took adderall. This drug should go to everyone that may think that they have one of these diseases. When I took it, I felt better, my mind wasn’t racing around. I wasn’t thinking about 50 things at once. I read half a novel that I have been trying to read for more than 3 months. I have gotten more in tune with getting into college. Also with this drug, I know that I will have the brain capacity to get a good job that doesn’t require too much in mental thought, for when I am not taking this anymore.

    For all those who oppose this drug, you’re stupid, unless you have ADD or ADHD, if you don’t, stop talking shit because you don’t know how hard it is to try and hold a job, you don’t know how hard it is to be talked down by your parents, and have them thinking that you have some mental problem. So the next time you think about talking about how this drug doesn’t help people like me, or that it is bad just because it has some amphetamines in it, it doesn’t matter. The only thing that does matter is that it works and it helps the symptoms go away.

    For everyone with the symptoms, I know what you are going through. Just try to get it prescribed to you, don’t worry about getting it, you will if you just tell the truth to your doctor, although he/she might tell you to go to a shrink. Just try it out and you will see that adderall will help with the symptoms that you are having.

    For the people that aren’t taking it for medical purposes, you guys shouldn’t be taking this for recreational uses, it was in fact pretty difficult for me to get it, because my doctor told me that a majority of people now-a-days are faking having the symptoms of ADD or ADHD, to get themselves prescribed any of the drugs, just to get high, I was at the college, where people that I was hanging out with, when they took it, and I hadn’t taken it, they were acting almost identical to what I was. SO just think before faking it. For example, if you were having sex with your girlfriend and she has a fake orgasm, how would you feel, when you found out? Pretty bad, right? Well that’s how you people are making us feel. Think before faking it..

  • 26. Tina  |  January 14th, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    I have to say I accidentally run across this thinking I was clicking on something else…..I have severe adult ADHD along with high anxiety I have been on adderall for 6 years and without it I am not me I tried weaning myself off but when my children started noticing my behavior and mimicking said behavior I decided it was best to leave well enough alone and continue taking my meds which btw was the best decision I made. I am raising 7 kids full time with my husband working 70-80 hours a week I am a firm believer that if you truly need something take it I actually sleep alot more it completely stopped the extreme insomnia and the anxiety so please if you don’t need it don’t take it I can’t risk losing a medication that I need to maintain a stable life for my family if ya wanna get speed do it right go buy you some meth but leave prescriptions for the ones who actually need them THANKS!

  • 27. R.Bolick  |  January 26th, 2011 at 5:16 am

    i’ve taken adderal before. xr made me sick. the doseage 30mg worked pretty well.. i’ve been off this for over 2 years and don’t need my medical records with the new doctor i’m trying to start seeing… do i let the dr know i’ve used this medicine before and that xr made me sick and the 30mg worked best for me??? I’m taking college course while working full time and can’t afford to flunk out when i need this course to keep my career.. any help would be great

  • 28. Silas  |  January 30th, 2011 at 10:17 pm

    Dude, almost all those answers to the questions are actually true in my case. Hopefully I get prescribed Adderall.

  • 29. Amelia T.  |  February 2nd, 2011 at 4:39 am

    This article is true. I have gotten anything I have ever wanted out of skilled dotors, pychoanalysts, therapists, you name it. yea yea oh they have been trained? I have not met one to compete with me which is sad. I just do it for fun now, to see how easy it is to just sit and doodle on a pad of paper and listen to someone drone on while you think about your porche. the medical field is fucked and we all know it. it is all about money and their pocket to pay off those pesky student loans. i got adderall 2 weeks ago and i dont need it, the fun of getting it and finding the truth of whom you are paying to “diagnose you” is all the reward i need πŸ™‚

  • 30. Guitarguy  |  February 3rd, 2011 at 10:48 am

    I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was younger. I was prescribed to it but refused to take it because I didn’t want to have to take meds to be normal. I went through a long phase of believing that everyone had ADD and ADHD symptoms but some people had it a little worse than others. I thought it was all a big joke. I thought I was just a very lazy person. I never took any meds throughout junior high or high school, but struggled to make it through. I am now 22 and in college. After 6 years of meditating, self-reflecting, and much reading on this subject I have come to the realization that ADHD is real and I do have it. I am not lazy. I am very willing to work and do things but I can’t register information the way most people can. My mind won’t allow me to focus on things directly around me instead it will wander and most of the time I have no control over it. Completely scatter-brained. My doctor won’t prescribe me to adderall because of fucktards like many of you that fake the symptoms and abuse the meds. You really have no idea how hard it is to be a full time student and get decent grades when you can’t sit still, zone out for a half an hour at a time, and can’t stay focused on one idea for more than a few seconds. I have learned to cope with these things by meditation, exercise, and nutrient supplements so those of you who can’t get meds but experience these symptoms this may help. Commonly changing routines helps too but if you work a 9-5 it’s hard to do. I will keep moving forward but it would be nice to have a little help. If you want adderall but don’t actually have ADD then please consider this before ruining things for people who really do struggle.

  • 31. Guitarguy  |  February 3rd, 2011 at 11:00 am

    And btw I am aware that meds aren’t the solution to many mental problems but when you are trying to be productive and accomplish things in life they sure do help. That’s how they are intended to be used. And for Amelia T. that is a load of b.s. Psychiatrists and doctors don’t try and compete with people intellectually. Most of them They simply listen and do what they can to help. So you aren’t fooling anyone you’re simply ruining the whole system for people who could use the help.

  • 32. meesh  |  February 8th, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    Minus a few of the more “ridiculous directions” this article has taken, overall responses have been very enlightening. However I was hoping to come across someone out there who is experiencing or has experienced a story similar to mine. I have an appointment this week to hopefully identify what I suffer from. I believe it’s ADD after doing the research and not being biased to the idea that you can only be diagnosed as a child. I’m going to see a new physician, as I haven’t been to a family practice in almost 7 years and live in a different state than where I grew up. I’m nervous because I am certainly not trying to doop the doc and really only want what’s best for me, but feel like if I don’t play my cards right, will come off that way bc of my unique situation.
    I’m 26, and have held a great job for 3 1/2 yrs….and just recently got promoted. However, to get there, I’ve had to work 5 times harder than the average hard worker, because my mind just SPINS through what needs to be done each day. Thank God for my unnatural work ethic bc otherwise I feel I wouldn’t even be close to where I’m at now. BUT, that “fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants-for-hours-and-hours-and-hours-to-get-it-all-done feeling”, has turned into sheer insanity in my head with this new promotion. This new role requires me to delegate, execute, and follow up on daily operations while viewing the business from a wholistic level…..sounds scary huh. Well, it actually is for me. I feel that if I don’t get something to level out the scatterbrain in me, my work ethic is only going to go so far before my manager has a conversation with me on my epic payroll tendencies. It’s no secret to her already that my opportunity every year is Plan, Drive, Execute but she has no idea (I’m still a little unsure) what my mind is doing with all these great thoughts and intentions. I have to consistently write lists to keep track (which I often lose anyways) and my innability to prioritize leaves me doing what should an 8 hr day in 11 sometimes 12 hrs. That adds up, and at the end of the day I can’t enjoy life bc I’m so exhausted. Looking back at high school/junior high, I suffered in a very similar way. Working my ass off, reading text book chapters over and over and over to retain, and the occasional cheat I have to admit, just to get slightly above average. It’s a shame that I didn’t seek help sooner, but I just thought that working harder to retain information and stay focused was the card I was dealt. And it was never really discussed with my childhood doctor’s for that same reason. Well…. now it’s critical that I figure this out because it’s affecting my adult life. On top of the work problems, I’ve experienced a loss in my libido? I can be a very sexual person, but I can’t muster up the energy or focus to be intimate, especially now. Needless to say, I’m 26 and desperatly needing something to fix this chemical imbalance or whatever it is. So in my search for a normal daily life, I’ve tried a couple prescritpion drugs that treat ADD…..just to see how I’d react…or if it would help. My father who for years showed signs of ADD (most famous for leaving ALL the cabinets, the microwave and sometimes the fridge open, after a snack raid), just started a prescription of Straterra. So I tried it and at first I was impressed, but it wasn’t too long before I was taking a 2 hour nap 2 hours in to the dose.???? Well that was defeating. Then, I tried a 20mg XR from a friend….who never told me she was diagnosed with ADHD until we were talking about my symptoms….and “voila”! My thoughts were clear, concise, and my demeanor was calm, cool and collected. I couldn’t believe it! I got home from work on time feeling accomplished, and still had energy to make dinner AND do the dishes.
    My concern is, not having actual medical history, and with my success in holding onto a very involved job will be variables that work against my case. Knowing that adderall did work for me and not being able to just tell the doc that is discouraging. I don’t want to come off like I’m drug seeking, but I don’t want to waste any more time going through such a PROCESS. Very frustrating.
    Ya know, it’s not so much the people who are dooping the doc that are ruining it for everyone else…’s the one who doops the doc and then draws attention to themselves by noticably abusing the drug. I guess unfortuanately you must require a strong will and sense of pride to use a recreational drug recreationally? I mean if you’re going to do it, do it with class?
    Sorry for the novel, but would appreciate any advice, feedback….. thanks.

    Wow, I actually have the same answers to those questions. I knew about ADHD and I knew about my lack of focus and lack of attention but I never really considered myself as having ADHD but I’m starting to think that I may have some the symptoms and that could be the reason to my problems with attention and focus.

  • 35. jane  |  March 4th, 2011 at 2:29 am

    I moved to toronto canada and I want to get a prescription to adderall. should i tell the doctor that I used to have a prescription in the US? or would they be able to check, and ask for a reference fax or something?

  • 36. Jennie  |  March 9th, 2011 at 11:39 am

    Im not prescribed to adderall, i take it so i can pass my ridiculous classes called college, you try studying for a final worth half your grade, sober and ADD as f*ck.

    Your not a loser cause your “taking drugs” some people just take it so they can have a future. Stfu haters.

    #32. Meesh,If you ever come back here to read this… I’m totally with you and I’m guessing that you were on a 30mg XR when you wrote that comment. I’m with a small company and I have a big job. I basically do everything. I take adderall to get through the day and it helps me out so much. It also helps out my company too. I’ll take a full day of work that usually takes two and a half to three people to do and finish it by lunch time. I was diagnosed in grammar school but my folks weren’t having it. I was in the “special” class where I’d have an unlimited amount of time to get through a test. I barely made it through high school and was put in the “special” class there too. I transfered to an art school, painted pictures and played guitar until I graduated… with no meds… I just left college one day out of no where after a year and a half and played more guitar. I was curious back then and I decided to experiment with adderall once… I dug it. I was in party mode though so I didn’t observe the drug the way I should have. I started taking it regularly about a year ago and I’ve recorded and filled a whole Cd book with original tunes, filled a warehouse with art and beat the shit out of my job, all at the same time. I only have a couple of problems. The first one is that I don’t rely on a doctor to fill my script. I find it elsewhere. The second problem is, since I don’t rely on a Dr. I run out of it a lot, quick and at long times. I have a personal observation of the drug now and I hope it helps out others as well… Stay “focused” and be aware of what your mind and body does, on and off of it. I’ve noticed patterns that reappear every time i take it like, different shit, same days instead of different day, same shit? whatever, it makes sense in my head so… I fully understand how and why this drug is addicting and if you’re not careful you can let a lot people down by not performing the way you “normally” should be performing when you don’t have the drug. That feeling will let you down even more. I still take it and I still plan on taking it only because I haven’t finished plotting my plan to take over the world…Jk, I’d need a drug a hell of a lot stronger than adderall to organize this world…like a 357mg SXR(super extended release)by mouth daily. We can plant adderall pills in the earth and pray that the world organizes itself. Like #26 Tina said, “maintain”…Its simple, do whatever it takes to get motivated and keep your mind satisfied and don’t take it if you don’t need it. There’s always coffee, Red Bull, NoDoz, Ginseng, Coke(the pop), Yoga, cold water to the face, a slap to the face, pretty much anything involving intense shock to the face, Tae Bo…

    you all know Adderall is a controlled substance .Basically,you can’t take more than prescribed.I asked for a higher mg and my doctor told me I’ve reached my tolerance level.He prescribed Vyvanse 40mg,but it doesn’t seem to work as well.So,it is certainly a hard to abuse drug.A good doctor will check your heart,weight etc.

I find it really hard to focus and my whole life Ive had behaviour issues and low grades. I am a great artist but I cant focus, I ve never finished a project!
    Im going to College this fall and HELL Im getting something, I need it and apparently it really works.
    Thanks guys! specially to the posters who shared their symptoms and behaviour.

    welllll isnt’t this nice. looks like anger, happiness, pity, and stupidity all hopped into the same car and drove over to this UNRELIABLE website. um, adderroll is SPEED. whenn added to a person with add/adhd it works like an algaebraic equation, and balances that person out. when added to any normal joe smoe, it works like several expresso shots. in other words, DUH any person who takes this drug will experience increased productivity, etc. this drug is simply a win,win situation. the way our society is unfolding, perhaps this drug should be OTC. maybe this way we can catch up with the rest of the world πŸ˜‰

  • 46. ADD isn't "cool"  |  April 3rd, 2011 at 6:35 pm

    I went off meds for 4 years. I have a “minority” case of ADD, where stimulants make me sleepy. Where as with all of you fakers – it makes you energetic / insomniacs.

    I can tell you Adderall is extremely addictive. You will be chasing the euphoria you got on the first 3-5 days with the medication. I have been taking Adderall for 2 months now, every day at 10mg XR 1x daily & 5mg IR 1x daily. It’s the only medicine that keeps me “normal” with everyone else and driving safely.

    I’ve tried methylphenidate based medications: ritalin, concerta, metadate, and even straterra. None of them worked like Adderall does, most gave me extreme anxiety / ocd symptoms.

    Please don’t get hooked on this stuff. Adderall is SPEED. A mixture of 4 amphetamine salts. The dextro-amphetamine is what you guys are craving, so you might as well stop abusing adderall and go for Dexedrine.

    P.S: Abuse of amphetamine will lead to a permanent dopamine inbalance. You will no longer gain pleasure from sex, food, tv, whatever it is that you cherish. I’m not joking either -.-

  • 47. SKHY  |  April 4th, 2011 at 3:05 am

    Yeah, wow, I kept reading so many comments bashing this post and it’s author that I just gave up and came down to say my own two cents.

    For those saying this post is horrible because it’s exploiting a disease and medication that they suffer from, you all need to take an open-minded look at this post!

    I have severe ADHD myself- the level of severity succeeds the maximum on the official scaling system. Being on adderall for years, the “euphoria/high” goes away rather quickly and I’m just left feeling like a normal human being, I’d began to doubt I even had ADHD or that it’s severity was being exaggerated.

    So when I fell into a deep, dark depression and my life had seemed to have come to a stop- I could never get anything– ANYTHING– accomplished or move forward in life no matter how desperately I wanted to- it took me almost an entire year to realize my problems coincided with when I stopped taking my adderall and realize that my therapist’s original diagnosis was correct. That suffering from ADHD is a much bigger deal than I thought.

    I’m sharing my story because, had I came across this list of Qs and As back when my life had just began turning frighteningly dark, a year of my life wouldn’t have been wasted suffering while not knowing it’s cause. That’s a year I’ll never get back.

    Whether you have ADD/ADHD or not, whether you go see a therapist or psychiatrist [assuming you can afford one], whether or not any action is taken- like seeking professional opinion, or ‘exploiting the system’, having this post readily available where someone whom could be unknowingly suffering like I had can at least give them the possible answer to the one question that tortures you the most during that kind of suffering. Why? Why am I like this, why is my heart always aching?

  • 48. Juanita  |  April 8th, 2011 at 2:24 am

    For approximately 4 months i saw a shrink and from day one I presented with high anxiety and obvious textbook ADD symptoms, but because of the history of adderall sales & abusers on campus, i guess he assumed i was faking as well. There were fellow classmates that were only interested in making a profit from their adderall RXs, I admit i bought some to see if maybe they could help the symptoms i suffered from. The following day i took a 40 mg(i believe was extended release) I swear i never focused harder in class before. So focused in fact that I was able and willing to tutor classmates on some of the curriculum. Something I could never do before due to extremely crippling anxiety & because never before could i repeat what we went over in class (not even to study on my own). After a few weeks of this sudden & dramatic improvement my nursing instructor,whom i previously confided in about my symptoms asked how my therapy was going. I knew she could keep a secret so I told her about how the dr. wasn’t really helping and about my purchase. I figured I’d probably get into trouble but then again, maybe she could help. After her lecture, she went with me to the wellness center & recommended to my bitch @ss dr. that I did in fact suffer from ADD. I am so grateful to my teacher for advocating for me. I have taken adderall for 6 yrs. I NO LONGER SUFFER FROM THE CRIPPLING ANXIETY AND I CAN FOCUS BETTER THAN EVER. WHICH LEADS ME TO SAY THAT IF YOU WANNA TAKE FAKE SYMPTOMS TO GET DRUGS, YOU PRETTY MUCH MESSIT UP FOR THE PEOPLE WHO NEED IT TO MAINTAIN A “NORMAL” LIFE. & Thank you to everyone who left comments, they are useful in helping someone figure out why they are the way they are. also for letting them know they are not alone. THANKS TO THE ADDERALL PUSHER WHO TOOK A CHANCE TO SELL ME SOME πŸ™‚ believe it or not, u actually helped merealize that it wasn’t all in my head. Forever your name will remain anonymous. I also realize that this individual may have been a faker to make a profit,but hey books were expensive as f~ck!

  • 49. Erik  |  April 13th, 2011 at 8:59 am

    Maybe it’s because I actually have ADD but I have no idea why you would want to use adderall as party drug.

    But if you’re going to be an idiot, don’t mix it with stuff, especially alcohol (very dangerous). Essentially, all the risky potential-for-organ-killing stuff that a lot of legal and not-so-legal drugs can do go into overdrive when you’re on something like adderall. That’s why I black out if I forget that I took meds later in the day and have more than 2-3 beers in the evening. And don’t be surprised if you start losing friends as you start to act like a complete asshole as that is one withdrawal effect that appears to be universal.

    Also, with serious abuse I’ve heard the withdrawal effects can be truly horrifying. Do your research on adderall. And compare to say, starting a cocaine habit. Financially speaking too if you’re seeing a shady shrink or paying some student middle-man to get at it.

    But seriously, if occasional booze and weed are that boring to you, you may want to step back and give yourself a reality check. And don’t use it to study if it makes you feel speedy. This is not a cup of coffee to a non-ADD brain we’re talking about here.

  • 50. Urgez  |  April 13th, 2011 at 12:02 pm

    For all you people who claim to have “real” ADD:

    What makes you think that your real is any different than someone who feels lazy, tired and unproductive most days? I’ve been a very average student my entire life. I don’t feel motivated, and generally can’t focus during class or on assignments without my mind drifting. But I’ve come from a culture that teaches you to STFU and do what you have to do. ADD was never an OPTION on the table as I grew up.

    So now, I’ve discovered this miraculous drug, and it makes me a much more focused and motivated person. But I wouldn’t say I have ADD. I’m just as lazy, unmotivated and tired as a lot of people I know.

    Again, to you “real” ADD people, maybe you’re in this class of people but couldn’t stand it. Not EVERYONE in the world has great work ethic, sorry to say. Some people need coffee to functions, others don’t. I’m taking this drug cause it allows me to reach my full capacity, just as it does for you. How you define “normal” functioning is COMPLETELY relative, so stop complaining about us “normal” people getting in on this good thing.

  • 52. ADHD PHD  |  April 16th, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    Frauds and scam scum- Stay out of legitimate medicine please. There are millions of crack dealers serving the non-legitimate drug using population.

    Why must you ruin legitimate care that is already so difficult and fraught with red-tape thanks to scam scum like you.

    You might as well be telling people how to water down cancer drugs and highlight where they can sell to their next victim.

    Please stay with crack – if you want to get drugs illegally then stay with crack – is cheap and plentiful.

    Why mess with or hinder the medical care of others
    has been so hard to obtain. Please stay out of medical terrorism. The health care industry is already strained and to close to collapsing. I am all for free speech and know you guys need hits on your website-
    But Really?

    It’s bad enough that my insurance premiums and taxes go to pay for fraudulent doctors, drug rehab gone wild and consumer lawsuits that drive healthcare costs skyward. I hope the authors of this article are pleased when they go to get lifesaving drugs only to find that they were banned or too costly for you thanks to fraud and dishonesty of others.

    Then it might hit home that you are are actually guilty of medical terrorism and that to truly be revolutionary and cutting edge you might might try SOCIAL RESPONSABILITY.

  • 53. MG  |  April 17th, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    A big part of ADD is pathological laziness. It is a serious problem for people who suffer from it. Amphetamines enhance the productivity of everybody, including non-ADD people, and do not affect people with ADD differently. The main criterion for distinguishing ADD from non-ADD people is the level of impairment. The line between “significant impairment” and “normal” is blurry. If the side effects of regular amphetamine use are less detrimental than the effects of your procrastination, disorganization, and general problems with inattention, then it might make sense to use the drug. If you seem to be functioning well without it (you can hold down a job and perform fairly well at it, you pay your bills on time, and maintain normal relationships, you finish personal projects that you start, etc.) then it’s probably healthier to avoid using amphetamines. Even highly driven, high functioning people can benefit from these drugs when used judiciously, but if you are using them regularly just to cram more living into your busy life then you will probably burn out in the long run.

  • 54. meg  |  April 18th, 2011 at 10:51 pm

    ugh add is a fake ass disease. i know because i have the symptoms but guess what… i push through it, do my best, and adapt! if i can only read 3 pages i read 3 pages and move on to a page of math homework
    its my life and its who i am
    im not gonna drug myself up and be someone im not
    everyone is different
    and theres no need for an amphetamine that causes seizures and paralysis(know a kid that happened to). my body doesnt need that

    im perfect the way i am πŸ™‚

  • 55. Nick  |  April 19th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    Ugh, I was diagnosed with add when i was younger, it’s complete bullshit, the 9 members of the american pharmaceutical board voted the condition into existence AFTER ritalin was created, essentially they looked at ritalin and asked “what does it do to people?” then used that list as a list of symptoms to market it. so coming from somebody who was diagnosed with it, to those who call it a condition, pull your head out of your ass, you’re not victim, you’re just good with excuses, you’re a shithead is what you are. … also to the person earlier who said “I have bi polar blah blah drug abusive past blah blah doctor will think im trying to score blah” .. reality check bi polar and add share 80% of the same symptoms, you’re either one or the other giving somebody with bi polar ritalin makes them severly suicidal, the same applies to the reverse scenario.

    to the self righteous muppets who claim “what a shitty article” etc etc … grow up, if these people wanted your opinions, they wouldn’t be on here, they’d be asking their parents and doctors how best to abuse substances.

    and finally to the articles author, meh, was funny.

  • 57. Brady Ryan  |  May 12th, 2011 at 12:13 pm

    It’s really great of you to step out and support the misuse of limited medical resources (see current shortage of generic Adderall XR) and encourage more people to deceive and waste the time of busy healthcare professionals. And yes, psychiatric conditions, like pain, are diagnosed and treated based on subjective report, which means that diagnosis is heavily based on what a patient tells the doctor. When they incorrectly diagnose you with ADHD, it has nothing to do with their incompetence or your brilliance, but merely with you being a shameless con man. I’m just waiting for your future posts on how to lie to incompetent employers to get hired, how to lie to incompetent women to get a date, how to lie to cashiers about what bill you gave them in order to get extra change back on a purchase, etc. I agree with other posts that you should turn your energies to obtaining and using meth off the street, hopefully some that is heavily laced with arsenic.

  • 58. Maxwell  |  May 12th, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    I don’t understand why everyone assumes that this resource is to get a drug to abuse.

    I went and took similar steps to this after my first year of college cause I wanted to get adderall to get me to do better in school.

    I ended my freshman year with a 2.1gpa and just finished my junior year with an overall of 3.2.

    Basically, everyone needs to chill the fuck out. I have literally met ONE person who abuses adderall, out of the dozens I know from my university who use it to be productive because they don’t want to do anything on it, except be productive.

  • 59. notrace  |  May 16th, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    You are a god damned hero. Some grade A stuff on here. I’m dabbling in psychiatrist / doctor manipulation myself, and I can confirm that this is indeed the way to go. Drop keywords. Don’t overdo it. Try to sell your condition, plant the idea in their heads but let them believe that they came to the conclusion themselves.

    Keep up the good work fellow ritalin-cravers.

    It’s not that easy. We give STANDARDIZED questionnaires call Vanderbilt assessments to not only parents but TEACHERS as well…..

    In order to diagnose ADHD, kids have to meet criteria in BOTH settings. If the parents Vanderbilt assessment is positive for ADHD, but the TEACHER’s in not….guess what? No diagnosis of ADHD!! We start looking at what’s going on in the home as far as discipline (or lack thereof), social situation, potential for abuse, etc.

    So, it’s really not all that easy to just “answer some questions” and get your 30 day prescription. This article is very misleading.

    whatever cuz adderall is not like crack or coke at all and if you have ever done any of those drugs then you would know the fucking difference and adhd is real it hurts allot of people and i do think that pretending you have it to get a little buzz is why the rest of us with real problems face so maney difficulties getting meds. but anyway taking adderall is so kid like it doesnt get you totally jacked up it just gives you a little bit of energy and helps you focus on a task like doing your homework or cleaning lol but it helps allot of people and just because some idiots abuse it doesnt mean its a bad drug people huph spraypaint and so what does that mean they should take it away from everyone??!!! i dont think so

    yeah, i’m seeing my psychiatrist for the first time this tuesday.i’m looking to be prescribed adderall. i display all the signs of someone with ADD though, except the one about struggling in grade school. elementary was easy, whereas in high school, where i had to actually apply myself and read, it took me about six times as long to read a page of whatever as it would take my peers. from experience (20mg), adderall doesn’t even give me a high (that i can feel). walking down the street on adderall feels the same as walking down the street without it. but reading is a whole different story. i can actually read an entire sentence one time and retain the info, the first time. that’s all i want it for, to give me a better reading and studying pace. other than i don’t even really need the drug, though i’m sure i do have ADD, honestly.

    wow! after reading all these post i think i have a ligit arguement for at least a trial run for aderall or ritalin bc i suffer from all the common syptoms of a person diagnosed with add/adhd took 4 methylphenidate tablets (concerta 18mg) around 530am(moutain time U.S)and is currently experiencing little unwanted side effects which are: mild stomach irritation and dry eye however i am experiencing an increase of the following: productivity, quality of work, creativity, multi task completion, focusness, and mild uphoria other sideeffects: include sleeplessness, increased energy, mood stablizer, analytical judgment, decreased in emotional reaction, jittery feeling however even though i am recieving a lasting favorvable reaction to concerta ritalin and adderall is on my pefered drug list bc i too understand all the pressures of success fame and fortune so naturally were driven potent enchancing drugs that are amphetimine based or “miracle drugs” so accordingly we are constantly faced with choosing pleasure over rationality it is totally up to you were only human dicovery and expeirimentation is in our genes, clinical advancement is thus determined by proccess of elimination, trial and error so do what ever makes you happy bc we only live once so ejoy this life to the fullest screw the haters! just be you! one day we can learn from todays expeiriment and find alternative ways to effectivally increase the functionality, effeciancy and performance of brain stimulating drugs. so thats my 2cents look forward to reading your comments dueces!

Did you learn how to threaten to kill people over the internet in boot camp or was it on one of your Broke-back Mountain adventures? And Juanita was it? Nice ramble about how awful people are for getting adderall when you started you story by saying you bought one in class from a student. Its people like you that create this market, if you weren’t there to buy them, no one would pull scams to get the pills you want to hoard all to yourself now. Its so fun watching you youngsters thinking your doing something new. From legal black beauties and qualudes to adderall and xanax, its all been done before and there will always be something new.

    This article should be off the internet. That stuff pertains to actual people including me and it’s not fun. Adderall helps but why take something when you don’t need it.

    After scrolling through most of these posts, or thoroughly reading them word for word(my sincerest appologies, i honestly cant really remember, i may or may not have a condition that may or may not exist ), i decided not to respond. Then i decided to change my mind. All seriousness aside, lets gets some facts straight. #74 Mr Pnutz, sir, you came very close to the bullseye, but missed by just a little bit. You got the joke but then tripped and fell back up onto your pedistal. And seriously, an effing doctor even posted a comment. Does this website say WebMD anywhere on it? If any one of you can look into your heart of hearts and honestly say you went through your entire “Dr House medical mystery-esque” wreck of a life, completely dumb-founded, until you ‘just happened’ to stumble upon this magical list of all your symptoms pre-packaged in one neat, concise little article to finally ‘diagnose’ your ailment, then i weep for my son’s future. NEWS BULLETIN: there will always be drug seekers, there will always be shrinky-dinks who dont shiv-a-git & will write u a script before asking your full name, and there will always be people like me, getting my entertainment (tonight at least) from of all of you special little snowflakes who take shit like this(and yourselves) too seriously. No one is forcing you to only see one doctor. Go see a couple. Its a common practice actually. Theres even a name for it called a second opinion. If you really have ADD, a real doctor will recognize and treat it. But for those of you who are visually impaired, i appologize, and will actually give you some real advice to aid you in your never ending quest for any and all medical related queries. Doctors look just like people and are found in doctors offices. They do not, however, look like flat 2 dimensional screens found on your computer and, at least in my experience, are not scrollable. That should get you started. Good luck. But, and i really, really, really, really, enjoy pointing one final thing out: if you are still reading this, chances are you dont have ADD.

    I did poorly in school. Everytime im reading a book and a cute girl walks by I cant pay attention. Lets say im doing homework and my favorite show comes on television, I just cant concentrate on my homework! Please gimmie adderal, then I can do my homework, read my book, and look at the cute girl all at the same time! I might even beable to take it a step farther and clean my house at the same time! I really think I need this drug!

  • 85. Nj  |  October 27th, 2011 at 12:20 pm

    Hey, I have adhd, if you do not have it than you should not take the meds. Its very simple to get them and the feeling is probably great. But it does lead to harder drugs like meth. If you are reading this article because you have add our adhd, than you will be ok. If you have it and are wanting it to get high, BE CAREFUL!! it will get you high but only for a moment and then you crash so hard its not a laughing matter. If your not wanting to crash make sure you get the right dose. Try the XR. It will slowly go into your system and not make you crash. Hope this helps the people who need it.

    Let me start out by saying add4real you sir are a disgrace to all service members and I have the right to say that being an Iraq war vet. I think everyone would like to do a better job and make better grades. So forgive me for faking something that does not exist just to try to get ahead in life and earn more money for my wife and kids, because we all have adhd or add it is just to what existent. I first got the drug from a friend and have been buying it ever since. It has made a huge difference in my life and will continue as long as I can get my hands on it. Sorry to the people who think they are more deserving and should be the only ones allowed to have this drug. Welcome to the rat race and I’m going to take every advantage that I can because that is all that you people are doing.

  • 88. student  |  November 5th, 2011 at 7:18 am

    This is a good artickle. Thanks for posting it. I believe that using drugs is pretty much mentally regarding to getting addicted. I know that because i’ve been a heavy smoker for 10 years and i always said that i’m not an addicted smoker till one of my friends asked me to stop, so i just easily did!! It is supring but possible. Adderall shouldn’t be just for people with ADHD or ADD. It should be for anyone who wants it. We need more democrats to support this and get rid of the stuck up republicans who think that they are better than everyone else!!

    I have been taking add meds for about 5 years. I am a senior citizen and without these drugs I probably would be dead. If they had been around when I was in college, I would have had a much better life and all the tragedies and pain I have experienced stem from the disease I have. So those of you who love to comment on your uneducated opinions, shut up. If you do not know anything, you really are wasting everyone’s time.

  • 92. Sean  |  December 4th, 2011 at 6:59 am

    I honesty answered every one of those questions and it was the same/very similar to what he put down except for the jobs part….ive never held a job that long, always part time. So my question is what is it that makes someone say “I really have ADD.” According to the questions…I do, but according to a doctor I don’t. Do people who really “have it” have it because a doc told them they did?

  • 93. owl blue  |  December 13th, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    so lately, i’ve been noticing all these effects that end up sounding a lot like ADD. i didnt think it was for a while, but im in high school now and things just start falling apart with me. theres so much stress, and reading this and finding out that all my answers show up to be this is scary. all i need is to be able to CHILL OUT and not sit in my bed every night for three hours going over my day and stressing out and having to re-read and re-read things over or have people repeat them is just driving me absolutely nuts. i havent gone to a doctor about this. i used to be sort of a minor druggie and had considered “dooping the doc” for this but now im actually concerned that i need it and i dont know if im gonna be able to get this because of people who are abusing this.

  • 94. owl blue  |  December 13th, 2011 at 1:55 pm

    shut up. once you go through these things and have mental breakdowns EVERY day and cant even understand whats going on in your own life, you can come back here and tell me that. think about what you’re saying and try to have a little empathy before you shoot people down who need it. being one of them i know that people saying things that you’re saying sure as hell isnt helping with any of this

  • 97. Rebecca  |  January 5th, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    Wow! I hear both sides and feel both sides! Here’s my sticky situation!
    I’m 24, married with a 2 year old. I have 24 tattoos. Only 2-3 that are visible given the weather. I have my ears gauged to 0, my bull piercing, and my inner tracus pierced.
    What you dOnt see or know…. I have a very very very good job. I work for the DoD ( department of defense ) 9x outta 10 the only thing they see is my ear piercing.
    Well I was on wellbutrin, zoloft, ambilify,prozac, ambien , lunest, and currently on trazadome. I am a person who had 14 tattoos. So, let’s start this frustrating debate! After 3-3 1/2 years NOTHING was helping! I finally was discarded from the army( honorable due to hubs and I both bn active duty, deployments etc) when I got out I switched to a local psych, she seemed nice. But also dished out candy like crazy. We went over 2-3 ADD/ADHD tests. Both was very high! So she put me on Ritalin 10mg x 2 a dAy, I became a BITCH! Mood swings hitting me after 2 hr.
    So she put me on Vyvanse 30 1/day. Noticed immediate results i maxed at 40 b c 50 was too much. Now she no longer accepted my insuranceξ„ˆ
    I was told to go In an be honest, so I did that my depression, anxiety, and sleep problem have gone away since I have been off for 3-4 months. YETi have no motivation, no desire, and failed 2 courses. I was only was on Ritalin for2 weeks, Vyvanse for a month. And ive been off the add/ADHD meds for close to 5 months.

    Here is my biggest thing…. Since I am tattooed, pierced and have a normal dress attire I would say, the keep telling me no. Really? Clearly I need it. I’m not faking shit! I’m just shaking my head!!!
    Don’t judge a book by it’s cover, I’m a well educated woman and according to everything I’m a severe case of a fuck no. It’s unfair. My last pysch appointment I let him know that while I was on Vyvanse I didn’t need to take any additional drugs. It helped my mood, my relationship withhusband etc… Last think told hi
    Was yes any amphetamine can cause addicrio
    If not monitored, but Vyvanse has chemicals that must be broke down through your liver… Which means no snorting… 2 people like you who judge people like me and rule out….. Guess that makes you ignorant! So yes, I buy from people. Not as a high, nor a weight loss etc but I purchase 5-10 and they last me about 20-25 days. Sad but im not am abuserξˆ„ to make sure i domt get hooked its not all the time, all though my work performance sucks

    The only reason i read this article because my friend/coworker had adderall and let me try a 10 mg pill. I took at around lunch and continued to work i was much more productive and alert. I do residental construction and finish carpentry. I was prescribed it as a kid as well as whatever the hell else they prescribe to kids i think alot of them are just over educated and overpaid drug dealers with out the consquences sometimes. But I have tried adderall a few times in the past 5 years but today really made me think its time to look at my medical files and call up the shrink for his/her expensive signature.

    Last thing when I go into the doctors should I just ask them for a script of only adderall and tell them i’ve tried it and im alot more productive, alert, and don’t forget measurements or simple tasks?

    Adderall Tips: How to Convince Your Shrink You Have ADD/ADHD

  • 101. AceFace  |  January 19th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    First of all, I dont think its right how people try to get prescribed anything they dont need.
    Now, my story: Ive had a problem with ADD/ADHD my whole life and didnt like taking pills. When I was 13 I decided not to take them. My problems only grew worse as I denied it and said the old line “nobody NEEDS pills”. I was in denial. It hurt my high school education, hurt my marriage, and ruined a couple of businesses I tryed to start. My wife always begged me to get help. I told her Im a very smart person and cope just fine without. Well, sad to say but it took her moving out for me to relize that I needed help. When I went and got help they prescribed me adderall and it made me shake, heart beat out of my chest, no sleep, hard to eat. I went back asking for something different, they gave me adderall but in a lower dose. I can REALLY cope with my problems better and tasks at hand. It saved my marriage. If the first experiance is why people want the drug because they like that feeling, I dont see how anybody could like feeling like that. I think its a bunch of BS for people who get it by lieing, you are the ones that make it hard for people who NEED it to get it like a couple stories I read thru here. Now they judge you by the way you look and other factors and label you a drug addict. Its sad what people do for the “high” and abuse things to make it harder on the ones who really need the help to better themselves!!

  • 103. William  |  January 25th, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    Why do others want to impose themselves between myself and my doctor? I suppose it is the same reason you want to make decisions about what goes on in my bedroom? Maybe it is the same reason you want to tell me what to eat? America, REMEMBER THE IMPORTANCE OF LIBERTY.

    Also, if someone wants drugs you can’t stop them. The war on drugs FAILED. However, if someone wants medical treatment you sadly can stop them. Laws limiting the ability of people to receive medical treatments like Adderall only hurt patients. Druggies will just get coke or meth or whatever instead.

  • 104. jeff  |  February 1st, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Wow, very interesting. Guitarguy, I agree too. In fact, I am beginning to think I absolutely have this. The thing is, it is soooo hard to get a diagnosis, doctors find other problems wrong, including mood swings or depression, YES!! I have these, but why? They don’t even care… I had one lady want to “stabilize my moods” before we treat the ADD. Ok, let me get this straight, I am now 30 (28 at the time of the appointment), come off as weird to most, including women and am, in my mind old now because of things I wanted in life when I was younger that I am afraid I may never get. Yes, of course I have mood swings, yes I am mildly depressed because of the past etc.. But the route of it all is my oddities and me seeing the world so very differently than others. I can’t pay attention, screw up things etc., was sooo afraid of school due to my “laziness” that I couldn’t overcome, all the while I had no problem with physical labor. I ended up down on myself and thinking factory work was the way to go, imagine that…Mentally stimulating tasks were always an issue, all the while my ideas and creativity flourish. I have gotten older, some of the fog went away and the stress of mentally stimulating tasks has decreased very much so. But other issues still exist. I am now in college as a non-traditional student in the medical field, took me long enough to feel competent enough to do so… I would LOVE to get in a research environment due to the way my brain works but my inability to absorb technical details that bore me is difficult. I am always thinking up studies I would love to try and drawing connections to things, which to others, they don’t see these extreme connections. It is like the wikipedia, i jump from one topic that relates to another and in the end, I wind up elsewhere, sometimes it is relevant to the initial topic but sometimes it is really far away from the topic at hand. A friend told me it is hard to have a conversation, I jump from one thing to the next. It is HARD to focus on just a few things so I can flourish. I think of my brain like a circle around a circle, where the circle inside is more focused (historians, fact type individuals, passionate about what they do) and then me on the outer circle with ideas all over the place but not channeled. Being sub-par with a lot of things sucks, even if you know some things about a lot of things. Actually, it isn’t horrible but it can be very challenging to get a good job being like this in our increasingly specialized society. Most people you encounter are good at a few things and you are constantly feeling inadequate. Anyway, this is how I generally feel. The funny thing also is that although mental tasks can be difficult for me, it is usually because I am too impatient to learn the basics and want to jump to level 2. But on the flip side, in a working environment without mental stimulation, I get bored, my mind wanders and I get accused of being a screw up. It used to make me feel inferior/stupid. Now, I am starting to realize I am smart in a specialized way but it is hard to use this intelligence. In a perfect world, we would be tested for certain mental skills and used in a team based fashion IMO. The one field I see a lot of ADD folks go is the computer field. Funny, because I always had a thing with computers and technology, my best job was a coordinator in which I had a bunch of tasks and had some free time to myself to use my creativity to enhance things. So, ADD seems to be on the rise, allergens the same. I actually think there is a connection, I also do believe dopamine and histamine levels are inversely related (research Tourette syndrome for more information). I even had a thought that computers/technology are changing our brains to be more likely ADD type folks. And a lot of the older generation has this bias of what to expect from us, which is soooo different perhaps, from their current view of how we should all be.

  • 105. alexandra  |  February 10th, 2012 at 3:24 pm

    Hey, came across this article by accident. Can i just say you disgust me? I have ADHD and its not easy to live with. When i first got my meds i didnt want to take them cause of the bad effects they have on you. I had to be forced. And you here are trying to get meds when you dont even have ADHD! Do you how hard it is to have to live with ADHD? Look it up online for fuck sake! And for the record : GETTING DIAGNOSED WITH ADHD can take YEARS. Theres the waiting lists, the actual tests (which need a full examination as well as interviews with ur aquaintances, medical history, previous report cards and all that as well as a whole load of your report cards) cud take up to 2 years, then when you do get diagnosed you might end up not even getting help. theyr gna check loads more than just a checklist of what you think of ur past. So if you wanna get fuking locked on ADHD meds find another way to get it cuz u aint gna hav it easy, so STOP WASTING EVERY1S TIME! Do u even kno the effects that is gna hav on u??? Get real. Cant believe sum1 wud wanna abuse drugs meant for helpin peopple. Assholes.

    k really? every one shut up please. all this crap about ” i cant believe your fine with this” and “thats so wrong” who the hell cares. it’s none of your business. the person who wants those drugs will find those drugs and theres not a god damn thing you can do about it, and who cares? with drugs like cocaine or heroin where it makes you unpredictable then yeah we should worry. but think about what this stuff does… it calms you down and help you think, focus and manage your day… for some people it speeds things up but for the most part it doesn’t cloud judgement. and you know what the best part of all is? the people that really dont need it, usually get hooked or just have a really fun night, take too much and OD, and again… who cares? it’s killing off stupidity… thanks, that is all.

  • 107. smarter than 98% of you (really)  |  February 21st, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    First, I want to preface this with the fact that I am seeing a psychiatrist as well as a therapist, and have for years- we have a great repertoire and I have been very honest with him about all of this.

    I had been on klonopin for a long time for anxiety and then I couldn’t afford to go see my psychiatrist, so I just dealt with it. My husband and I divorced (I was 26 at the time), and I got my regular MD to give it to me for a bit, due to the worsening symptoms. The second followup I had with him, I wanted to get an extra klonopin/day because I needed it. I explained the problems I was having (I was also in my last semester of college and the stress of dealing with the divorce and taking care of a 4 and a 2 year old with no help from the father was awful).

    Then, out of the blue, the first thing my MD did was ask, “Has anyone ever suggested that perhaps you have ADHD?” This is a doctor that knows I smoke pot to help my insomnia (I do try and be honest with my doctors) as well, BTW. Suddenly a light when off in my head- I had taken Adderall before to stay awake and do homework, to deal with work after a hangover etc when I was younger (Ritilin a few times in my teens and actual Adderall in my 20’s), and it suppresses my appetite. I have an extremely low metabolism and no one knows why, so I have to eat under 800 cals a day in addition to working out three days a week to lose the recommended pound a week.

    Now, I saw this as my way in! Finally- I would have the energy for the kids, my last semester of college etc- and maybe lose some weight! So, I played the game and walked out with a script of 30mg XRs (not the klonopin I wanted/needed, but you can’t win them all, right?). I couldn’t believe it- my golden ticket to being super mom (my patience is unwavering on it) and finishing college, plus drop some poundage.

    I also suffer from severe depression that is not responsive to medications (I have tried over 35, and no, I was not taking any other drugs at the time, including smoking weed b/c I know that can cause them not to work). After 12 years, I am now considering ECT. My depression has gotten to an all-time low. I am remarried (graduated years ago), and now my kids are school-age. I still get my adderall, and thank fucking christ. I don’t know if my psychiatrist thinks I actually have ADHD or not (I started getting them fro her instead of my MD), but I think she knows I NEED them.

    I don’t use them to get “high”- getting jittery isn’t fun. I take the amount I am prescribed (which is now a 30mg IR in the morning and a 20mg IR in the afternoon, though I often take it fairly close together), and I know if it were not for that, I might not even be able to get out of bed to care for my children for the few hours between the end of school and when my husband gets home. I can clean the house, help with homework, give them love and attention they need, and then I lie back in bed.

    I am sorry for the novel, but long story short- I probably don’t have ADHD at all, and I don’t particularly like taking my Adderall in high doses (I did try a few times, but the side effects weren’t worth it all, and it didn’t really give me euphoria), so I’m not just “looking for a high”. My script never runs out early (often I have some leftover) and it allows me to pull myself out of my depression to give my kids the love, focus and attention they deserve, as well as to clean up the house so there burden for my husband.

    If it were not for my Adderall, I would have the energy to do the bare minimum and fail at that (I know b/c I wouldn’t take it for a few days, as I like to give my body breaks, and I would just sink back into my depression), and I am SO thankful that I can be a good mom to my kids and a (fairly) good wife to my husband, though my depression is a cause of much stress. I am getting help, as I already stated, and am researching the possibility of ECT, given that no meds work.

  • 108. Julie  |  March 1st, 2012 at 11:36 am

    Soooo… how do I get my Phych to give me adderall? He gave me Cymbalta last time. Apparently, I gave the wrong answers…? He did say to come back in 2 weeks and if my focus didn’t improve, he would look into a stimulant. Any suggestions on how to attain this??

  • 109. Kay Duncan  |  March 2nd, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    I don’t really know if I have ADD or not, but I do know that I’ve taken Adderall from one of my friends a couple of times and I’ve never seen myself so focused and productive. Is that what being “high” off of Adderall is like? Or do people get jittery? Because I didn’t… I just felt really focused and in the zone. I’ve found that I zone out a lot, especially when I first meet people. I never remember first names or conversations. Math, well, don’t even get me started. School in general. I wouldn’t say I have bad grades, but the fear from my parent’s backlash at anything less than a C overrode my procrastinating side. Also, caffeine is another topic. I don’t understand why people are comparing Adderall and caffeine. Caffeine to me is nothing. Coffee, energy drinks; I can take shots of espresso and feel nothing. All that is useless to me. I’ve never felt jittery or even more awake at all from coffee, so I suppose I don’t really see it’s connection to Adderall. Either way, I’ve finally scheduled an appointment with a psychiatrist, albeit against my family’s wishes. According to them, mental disorders don’t exist. Here’s to hoping something can fix how spacey and forgetful I am.

    I think I may have ADD, I just recently started an online course and I have to read the chapters at least 3 to 4 times in order to pass the quizzes at the end. While reading I find my self wondering off somewhere else, then think, “what did I just read” then I re-read and before I know it I’m off in lala land again. Which I have always had a hard time concentrating on anything, like directions, someone can give me directions and I’ll be like “ok, yeah I know where that is” then once I pull away, I’m thinking OH DEAR, I wasnt paying a bit of attention to where they said to go! Needless to say, I have to stop and ask someone else, except this time I say I’m gonna write it down, but then forget to… Anyways, my question is, do you have to see a physc to get diagnosed with ADD, or can I just go to my family dr?

  • 113. KatieRose  |  March 14th, 2012 at 4:29 am

    That’s kinda bogus. I have always had problems paying attention in school. Talking or zoning out. My teachers would always make jokes about no matter where they put me I would still have the same talking issues along with the lack of focus. It’s preventing me from going to college dude to the fact I can’t focus on one thing for more then 20 mind. TOPS. Haven’t watched a whole movie in years. I’ll forget I’m watching a movie and walk away from it. There r people who need this, and by u abusing it is rediculous.

  • 115. godfather  |  March 20th, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    Well this is very funny, one of my friend is on adderall because he likes it, not because he needs it. One day he gave me a couple blue M&M’s and told me it was going to be fun, well guess what it actually helped me focus on shit that is important, saddly all the answers up here match me pretty good, teachers always said I am very very smart but I am trouble as well, I always get off the track and move into something else without finishing, hobbies? how about 2-3k spent on rc nitro cars in 2 months, leave it, then 2-3k into paintball, leave it, video games are the only ones that stick around. So I am wondering how hard it is going to be to get adderall since its so damn popular among addicts lol.

    Hey Add army guy sniper, where and when did you go to school? I was there, i graduated, and theres one thing i know, you may never miss twice, but i never miss once, and also as a sniper you should know that when bullets pass by, they dont zing, they snap, breaking the sound barrier, so yea take another pill and shut the hell up, whats the snipers Motto? Wheres the course at? What grain .308 do we use? What power scope? whats the nomenclatures for all the rifles a basic sniper uses? and a 30-06 has a hell of a bullet drop with a 220 grn rnd, try 165, but you already knew that right? ha

    you guys are all pussys, god made our bodys, and he didnt invent pills, adhd is a lie, its all in your mind, i lost my leg in Iraq, i had tons of pain, they tried giving me Morphine, Dillaudid, fentynal, etc.. I tried it, but stopped in 2 days i realized, its all in my head and i enjoy the pain. Its gods creation that we are! Stop poisioning it with man made pharmacueticals. Stop being pussys, grab a tissue cry in it, and man the fuck up

  • 119. DetroitDetroit  |  March 28th, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    ADHD = not a real thing. Our behavior is inevitably shaped by our environment and our genes. Its just that kids these days are growing up in a sterile, under-stimulating suburban prison, watching TV and playing video games, not being disciplined, not being taught to make responsible choices, having no autonomy because of the necessity to be driven to each and every activity by their parents, experiencing no richness or romanticism or adventure in their youth and as a result of course cannot focus or prioritize, are impulsive and disrespectful, have no work ethic etc… they have never been allowed to take responsibility for their own lives so they can’t do it when the time comes. It’s our society and our way of life that causes us to need Aderall to function, not some mysterious mental illness. Those of you diagnosed with ADHD are diagnosed because your parents or someone else initiated you into the system, took you to see doctors, talked to your teachers, put you through tests etc… I’m sure all of us in the younger generations exhibit symptoms of so-called ADHD. You do not have more of a “right” to Aderall than your similarly unfocused, lazy peers. Get off your high-horse and let it go.

  • 120. focusfree  |  April 1st, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    I’m one of the actual 4% – and let me tell you, it’s a pain in the butt trying to obtain my monthly supply of Adderall – thanks to idiots who try to use it recreationally or as a cognitive enhancer. If I could find something that worked as well, that wasn’t a Schedule II drug, I’d jump at it. Unfortunately, 60 mg a day doesn’t even get me to function normally – but it helps a lot.

    But I understand, there are so many regulations on this drug because the feds have to protect people from their own stupidity.

    Let me just say that I’m not shocked by the irresponsiblity of this article; I’m shocked that some are so public about it.

    The good news is, if you don’t have AD/HD, you don’t need a drug; you just need a life.

  • 121. meh  |  April 10th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    i just got a huge job with a shit load of responsibilities. i could get adderall from time to time in university, and it actually helped me a lot. so who’s to say that normal, smart, yet lazy and generally unmotivated people like myself aren’t as qualified to get this amazing drug as the “real” add/adhd people? i think just because those people have been told since they were 6 (probably because their parents didn’t raise them right) that they have this “disorder,” they really believe they have one. that’s called indoctrination.

    well, i’m going to a psych ASAP just to get this wonderful drug.

  • 122. Mallory  |  April 15th, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    I think this article is crap! I know where to get a drug like aderall without a percription. it easy just go to your local METH dealer. If it was easy to became a shrink anyone would do it. I have ADHD and if you don’t have it you have no idea what it’s like.
    “so who’s to say that normal, smart, yet lazy and generally unmotivated people like myself aren’t as qualified to get this amazing drug as the β€œreal” add/adhd people? i think just because those people have been told since they were 6 (probably because their parents didn’t raise them right) that they have this β€œdisorder,” they really believe they have one. that’s called indoctrination.”
    If this so called disorder wasn’t around niether would these pills be,outside someone who has narcalepsy(the sleeping disorder)!
    And who’s to say the FED/FDA/DEA are to say! that is a lot of people, doctors and concerned citizens who don’t want to see people hurt themselves. Adderall has been used widely in the country for years and has led to numerous addictiona and heart problems that’s why it is on the Schedule II drug list. It’s HIHGLY ADDICTIVE but has medicinal properties otherwise it would still be a DIET AIDE for it’s appatite supresant cappabilities. If it weren’t for theraputic ablilties this drug would be illegal because it is an ANPHETAMINE or lamen’s term SPEED/METH and anyone who isnt ADD/HD or NARCOLEPTIC should not be taking it and if you think otherwise your are kidding yourself. GET A LIFE FUCK AND THE PILLS THEY AREN’T MAGIC there is no such thing as magic only heard work and a bit of luck and timeing.

  • 123. Bailey  |  April 17th, 2012 at 1:35 am

    I Agree with comment 122
    just go ahead and visit you friendly neighbourhood meth dealer. Because everyone knows/ wants to meet up with THAT guy/girl.

    … NOT…

    hahaha what an idiotic thing to say
    1. what kind of stupid “normal” non abusing college student or whatever is going to seek out a meth dealer, and even if one did know where to look, why would you ever buy these “prescription” drugs off the street??? haha

    well your there, may as well just get some real meth or crack ( since you probably have no self-respect, or care for your body)

    If you must get this somehow – probably stick to trying to fool the doctors.

    but i still think that people are just being cowardly, and lazy. If you don’t actually have the symptoms, toughen up – and do what the rest of us do and put the effort in to preparing for the tests earlier. you don’s amphetamines, don’t make yourself think that your only as good as the drugs you smuggle. its sad, weak, and pathetic.


  • 124. Jg  |  April 21st, 2012 at 12:42 pm

    This is exactly the reason why testing has changed, testing will indicate the presence of the syndrome which can’t be made up if the testing is thorough. You can fake it only for so long if that whilst causing problems for those who legitamitely have ADD/ADHD.

So really, all these people saying that you should stay away from the only medication that may be able to help me… you are killing me. I’ve never finished a thing in my life. Never have studied. Distracted easily. Lose all my stuff, including my memory. Doctors tried to say I was bi-polar (meds caused aphasia), then they said I had anxiety (also addictive meds, they have no problem prescribing, don’t work), and they even thought I had ADD (I told them no, and they dropped it) I can’t believe I’m in the position I am in. I’m at the end of my rope. Assholes for saying people should OD for having this article up.

People like you should not be infecting the internet with misinformation like this. This drug is extremely addictive and dangerous… makes me laugh but also scares me because you sound pretty sure about yourself too, as do many other of the idiots commenting in this thread agreeing with you.

  • 136. Alan  |  August 2nd, 2012 at 11:43 am

    Its thingg like this that are causing the problem I am having obtaining a script. I stopped going to docs when my life was in order and didn’t really need the meds cause I was enjoying my job. Then I get a brain injury in car accident that makes my attention/hyper/impulses worse than childhood young adulthood. I try to get docs, I get different diagnosis, and other meds that messed me up I am on buproprion which is an improvement after jumping through f-ing hoops for 4 yrs of this bs. The bupropion doesn’t work 100% but better than Abilify, celexa, buspar, ativan they tried all kinds of crap and I get fet up go to another doc, start over this is the first time they came clos but still won’t give me my Ritalin I used to get for 20 years. If I had been give this in first place I would have been able to keep jobs , not mouth off to bosses, show up late, turn in paperwork, etc NOt excuses this is a rel disorder and my life has been ruined by the fakers making these docs mess with other co morbid disorders that are non existent and to probably get kickbacks from big pharma too, Ritalin is so old so it probably does not matter.

  • 137. Alan  |  August 2nd, 2012 at 11:50 am

    This f-ing pisses me off , the fakers can get away with this I tell truth and they have had me coming in for months of appts / evaluations while on other meds so symptoms were different. They even say I have OCD now, which was side effect and anxiety from abilify I was depressed yes but not having money does not make anyone happy. The system is so messed up no, i I am better off with no treatment. Besides these meds are not “enjoyable”, I have taken more than dose of Ritalin and adderall b4 and all it does it make me less hungry and stay awake longer. No high , no fun I do not see what enjoyment comes from these to people faking the disorders, and real sufferers like myself struggling to put my life back together get denied proper treatment due to new crackdowns , etc. This is utter bs. end of my rant I am sorry but I know people faking to get meds and this is bs

    I am one of the small percentage of individuals who actually lives daily with adult adhd. I have dealt with this since I was diagnosed at 8 years old. I managed to graduate high school (with the help of meds) and even graduate nursing school (without meds) I hasnt been easy but I have done it and am very proud of my accomplishments. Then I see someone like you on the internet helping people fake this disorder just to get medications. Shame on you. These medications are not only addicting but very dangerous as well. READ THE SIDE EFFECTS PEOPLE. If you think you are immune to those rare but exsisting side effects that happen onlyy once in a great while> THINK AGAIN. It has to happen to someone somewhere in order for them to know about that adverse reaction. You folks are the reason it is becoming increasingly difficult for people with adhd to get their medications. Think about this. Somewhere out there is a hard working high school student with adhd with big dreams to do something meaningful with his life but is failing high school because he cant get his meds because you drug seekers are taking it from him. WAY TO GO BRAVO HOPE YOU ARE SO PROUD OF YOURSELVES.

    First off, thank you for an amusing read. Due to the utter awesomeness of this page, I am compelled to put in my two cents.

    I’m a university student (3.85 GPA economics major). I don’t have ADD but I’ve taken Ritalin and Vyvanse before. Contrary to popular belief, I don’t take them to study. I take them to play video games and have amazing sex.

    Will I try to fake ADD symptoms for a prescription? Probably not. Will I end up buying some Adderall from a friend who has? Highly likely.

    Us smart people will get our hands on them one way or another. Thanks universe!

  • 142. Mary  |  August 16th, 2012 at 8:19 pm

    Relax all of you commenters that are freaking out over those “faking” to get a prescription. How are you sure the doctor that “diagnosed” you with ADHD wasn’t just writing you a script to shut you up? I had a 4.0 in high school and started taking adderall in college; graduated with a 3.8 . Now, I’m incredibly successful at my job, and advancing faster than my coworkers, because my friend slips me a few adderall every now and then. Just because a doctor “diagnoses” you with ADHD doesn’t give you the right to preach to those who haven’t been diagnosed and still take it. I told my doctor I have trouble sleeping and was easily prescribed 1mg xanax daily. Am i running around condemning those who abuse xanax? Nope, just trading my xanax for adderalls.. πŸ™‚

Keep telling yourself you better and not a junkie because u use it to study or lose weight. Most heroine addicts ended up there because they had a ligit injury and doc game em percocet. ADDICTION IS A FUCKING BITCH. IT DOES NOT DISCRIMANATE. it doesn’t care how good a person u are(or were) how good a family u came from or if you only use for his or that…give that bitch some time and she will have you WALTZING to her tune until she takes everything from you. Even if it takes her 20 yrs. And if your LUCKY enough to escape her clutches by going to 5 NA meetings a day, for the rest of your life every morning u open ur eyes she will be there waiting watching for one millisecond of weakness so she can whisper her poison into ur ear….that BITCH called ADDICTION is incideous, cunning, sly and devious. Keep lying to ourselves kids. A drug is a drug is a drug and a drug addict is a drug addict adderall cocaine Meth crack heroine pills. It all starts the same. A

  • 146. Victoria  |  September 2nd, 2012 at 7:20 am

    I don’t like the idea of fooling a psychiatrist to obtain Adderall, but I think it should be obtainable for people without ADHD, because it improves concentration and study habits for EVERYONE. I performed very well in college and career so far, but in applying for graduate school I’ve begun taking adderall to study for the GREs. For six hours I learn new vocabulary without distraction and commit it to memory. I learn twice as much in half the time.

    Think of how many medical and technological advances, great American novels, and other kinds of positive influences the world would see if anyone dedicated to a field could improve their focus and stamina. Add the unshakable focus to the raw talent of our minds and we could cure cancer, people! Adderall for anyone.

  • 147. Jen  |  September 4th, 2012 at 2:32 am

    I don’t understand what is so horrible about adderall to begin with. Aside from addiction. But if there are no negative side effects…why is it such a horribly controlled substance??

    I’m 26 and have had a rough life. My Psychiatrist said ‘no’ to Adderall because I graduated college. Little does he know I barely graduated/barely went to class/had ritalin for exams. I also missed my entire last semester of my senior year because my dad unexpectedly passed away. I was on leave from school and all my professors gave me As or Bs just because of what I was going through.

    I’ve been on pretty much every antidepressant. I’ve been on narcotics/opiates for a long time and have a huge tolerance to opiates. I am actually typing this right now because I am ON adderall right now. Otherwise I could not type. I honestly lay in bad all day…sleep until 1-2pm.
    Whenever anyone talks to me I can NOT focus on anything they’re saying. Especially authority types. I had no motivation to shower… I’ve gone 2 weeks without showering. But when I’m on adderall everything is much better! I have a life! So I don’t understand why I can’t get a script? Why can’t I decide what I put in my body? If it takes 20 years off my life I don’t care. I am in my 20s and have a horrible life. While all my friends are getting married and having kids. And by friends I mean people I was friends was…5 years ago. Adderall is what I need. I’m going to ask from my primary dr. but I doubt he’ll do it. Seriously, what is so bad about adderall?

  • 148. Juci_Shockwave  |  September 5th, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    I personally do suffer from one of the many types of ADD. Mine was ADD depression. I say was because I’m on Adderall. I always had difficulty in focusing. I was diagnose with Learning Disabilities, but as I got older and had myself tested by more sophisticated and higher qualified psychologists I was diagnosed with ADD depression. πŸ™

    All my life I thought I would live the rest of my life in darkness and struggle, forcing my brain to work three times harder than the average person. For an average individual he or she may only need to use 60% effort to complete an assignment perfectly in just 3 days and get an A; whereas for me, in order to get at least a B in anything I have to work on the project for a month or more and give over 150% or more of my effort. It is very draining and horrible. It’s worse when I give my all 200% effort and I still fail because my mind decided to drift off most of the time. It’s hard. It is not fun to feel like such a failure because I lost the power to force the brain to stick to one project at a time and complete it. Even something so simple as to feed the dog is overlooked because my brain day dreamed for over 3hrs. I lost 2 months of my life due to my mind wondering. … and when I realize it, I just want to die. My ADD was far worse than death. I just wanted to die already to end this nightmare I lived with all my life.

    As I get older it is becoming harder to control this thing, so I begged for help. I was finally given Adderall. When I first took Adderall it wasn’t a high as average people had stated…no it was far better. I felt so liberated. My headaches were gone, along with the depression of not processing things normally like everyone else. Adderall made me feel and think normal. I wasn’t defective any more. When I took that med. I felt I was like everyone else in my family. It is such an amazing feeling to be normal. To be or feel like I’m part of the family. That I don’t have to use all of my energy in just being able to speak and be like everyone else. I have to use so much of my brain and energy to just construct sentences, forget grammar. I could careless about grammar. If I had to worry about grammar I would never be able to express myself. As for traveling, I rely solely on my mom for transportation due to my mind not staying awake to the present moment or surroundings.

    Normal people who abuse the system to obtain Adderall are in some way harming those of us who really need these meds. πŸ™ They don’t know that most pharmacies could only carry and sell a certain amount of pills. If too many people are diagnose, there wouldn’t be any for those of us who actually do need it to have a normal life. My ADD isn’t the worse, but ADD meds have saved my life. I have a much positive outlook on life because of this. Please, if you don’t have ADD, don’t abuse the meds nor the system. There are those of us who actually need those limited pills to live.

    If you need the high, try to find alternatives. I’ve read that there are over the counter Benzedrine products, which have similar effects as Adderall. Most congestion meds have this ingredient.

    TO THOSE WHO SAY IT IS A ADDICTING DRUG: It isn’t the drugs fault. It’s your fault, you were born with the shitty genes and have addict traits. Sorry you got screwed by the gene pool. These are tips to get the drug. My doctor is too (for lack of a better term) conservative and gives me strattera which doesnt work for me. Some people need a stimulant rather than a depressant but because of dumb a** people who dont have will power and can’t function without it screw people like me over because they get addicted and bitch about how its alllll the drugs fault.

Well fuck you…. my life and problems are a 1000x worse than anything you have imagined. I deserve adderall and the pursuit of happiness just as much as anyone. Its been 3 years since I felt that pure ecstasy and joy, infinitely greater than anything else I have ever experienced in my life. I remember it but I yearn for another taste. With it, life can be worth living for a short while. The day it is banned all hope in my life will be lost…

  • 157. The Truth  |  October 1st, 2012 at 9:10 am

    Okay, it depends on the doctor. He might just prescribe you the drugs to get the cash. Why wouldn’t they?

    Just act like you have no patience, and get prescribed.

    Take it on days where you just don’t want to get up and save the rest. You DON’T have to take it everyday, just take it whenever you actually need it. I carry around one aday, and just pop one if needed. It works instantly!

    I got a presciption for 20mg,(I think this is the perfect dose for most people around 150-180lbs.) More would cause a withdraw feeling, and isn’t recommended to take everyday.

    P.S.: Adderall changed my life!

    Well. Its not fair for some to get performance enhancers and not others. Isn’t that what they truly are? Performance enhancers. Anyone would do better on tests, physical and mental.
    I went to a Dr. told him i was new in town and going back to school. I needed to get back on my meds. Score.

    sometimes i want adderall to study, i take a decent dose like 30mg a day on days i want to study few for like a week before a test and it helps. its getting harder to get because big pharma wants more fucking money. supply and demand people, they aren’t protecting anybody. if that was true alcohol and cigarettes wouldnt be sold on every street corner. open your eyes and let people do adderall if they want who gives a shit.

    I have to add to this. I usually don’t bother, but when it comes to someone telling other people how to get and abuse drugs I need I get mad.People don’t do this to people who have diabetes.
    I have tested 97% ADHD, and just found out I have bipolar 2. I did not want, or ask for this. I am a believer in Jesus Christ, so I know he has a reason for everything.
    How many of you had to sit in a desk with walls on 3 sides, and put at the back of the class?? How many of you had your own desk outside the principles office??
    I assume the ones on here looking, are young people. Remember these are powerful drugs. They are also very illegal, without a prescription. My wife helps me with all the meds I take, and I remind her not to carry my Adderall, or the Clonazepam I take as needed for my Bipolar.
    To any law enforcement, or people in authority, please don’t take these drugs from people who need them. Demand strict testing, but for the people who really benefit from these medications, please keep them available for us.

    This guy is retarded. Ive had adhd my whole life and at 20 finally went for help and evaluation. After 2 weeks on 30 mg vyvanse switched to 70 then not feeling much and crashing too soon after a month went to 140mg vyvanse a day and it helps a lot. People with adhd will are usually high-functioning and very romantic devoting all their time to their partner making them have much longer relationships than most. They dont fear driving too often but rather have road rage. Many things in here are way off and a few are right. No wonder your doctor doubted you. You are blatently ignorant about this disease.

    How ADHD medication and psych meds destroyed my life:

    Prior to the fall of 2004 I was an intelligent well informed person, very functional and capable. I had never suffered from depression and definitely had never been suicidal. I had never been on or needed psych meds in my life. I had an incident during which I allowed my anger to get the best of me and I ended up being required to take anger management and to have a psych eval as a part of the anger management. During the psych eval the lady said she believed I may have ADHD. I did have lot’s of energy but it was normal healthy focused energy. I feel she was seeing my nervousness from having to be there and interpreting that as ADHD. She offered and suggested a trial sample of Strattera. She kept insisting I just take it home with me and try it. “It’s safe, it’s harmless, it’s a pep pill, it will help you do everything you normally do only better,” she said. I was hesitant to take it but to get her off my back I took the three month supply of trial sample home with me and tossed it in the closet and forgot about it. Later that year in the fall of ’04 at the age of 27 I decided to further my education and went to college for agri./nutrition science. I was doing extremely well and had a 3.8 GPA, was elected vice president of the post secondary agriculture association and was invited to join Phi Beta Kappa honor society. I came across that trial of Strattera and don’t know what possessed me to try it but I did. I took the stuff for the full three months worth of trial I had been given. I noticed no benefit from being on the stuff and in fact had a few serious panic attacks like I had never had in my life. I had never been warned about side effects or about having to wean off of the stuff so when I ran out I thought nothing of It. In 2004 there wasn’t much information about it available and the things the manufacturer claimed were misleading or out right lies. In fact they still claim you don’t need to ween off of Strattera and that dropping it cold turkey causes no problems which is a lie. By the end of the week after having ran out of Strattera I was experiencing all sorts of physical problems, (dizziness, grey out spells, tremors, all sorts of stuff….). Then I began having memory problems and difficulty thinking and concentrating. I had always been a good speller and had a rich vocabulary and was also good with computers but I began struggling to remember how to spell simple things and how do things on the computer. This all progressed and I then became depressed which became worse and worse to the point that I seriously lost touch with reality. And in April of 2005 I attempted suicide. This all was completely out of character for me. After the suicide attempt while in the mental hospital on suicide watch I was given a combination of cymbalta, seroquil, and klonopin. I was so out of it I wasn’t caring what they were handing me. I have never been on an acid trip but what I experienced on those meds was what I imagine one may be like. Over the years since then I have been on all sort’s of various combinations of medications. Some of which I later found out I should have never been on in the first place and some of the medications should have never been given in the combinations they were given. I have been on over 18 different medications over the last seven years and was never properly weened off of or properly transitioned from one to another. I’ve experienced various levels of psychosis and had all sort’s of bad reactions and experiences over the last seven years as a result of all of these medications. What began with that Strattera seven years ago has became a perpetual nightmare for me. It’s a nightmare being on the stuff but trying to get off of it is a whole different sort of nightmare. And it seems that doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and pharmaceutical companies don’t want you to ever get off the stuff. I wonder why…$$$ Their medications created my condition, my depression and led to my suicide attempt and to me being jerked around on all sort’s of other medications which further twisted and contorted and destroyed my mind my emotions and my ability to function. They created their own market by creating mental illness. I went from being an intelligent, functional, fairly normal person to being a massively dull, shallow, rigid minded non-functional emotionless retard. I can’t even begin to tell you the amount of everything I’ve lost… knowledge, understanding, skills, experience, insight, memories, the solidified connections and associations that reinforce and tie memories and emotions together. All the connections and associations that should be tied to sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and sensations and should invoke memories, thoughts, and emotions about things are all devastated and massively wiped out. I am 35 years old and I feel like I am experiencing a combination of dementia, amnesia, and brain damage. I am not exagerating or saying that jokingly either. I am seriously scared to death that I have dementia now as I continue to deteriorate. I am unable to work, unable to do the things I need to do let alone things I want to do, completely unable to keep up with the speed of life, unable to do so many things that I was once very capable of. I’m never going to feel human or experience life like a normal person again. Life just doesn’t even feel real or serious to me anymore, it’s like a perpetual bad acid trip that I can’t wake up from. I have no money, no insurance and no way to get any real help. And as I had said the doctors and psychologists won’t even take me seriously or do anything to really help when I do manage to see them. They keep telling me it’s just depression and anxiety and to get back on the meds. Medications that have put me in this condition in the first place. I have applied for disability but been denied three times. It is on appeal again now. I can’t get cash or medical assistance through the state of Kansas until my disability case has been decided either way. And even then I’m not sure if I’d be able to recieve any assistance. The state has did away with the cash assistance program due to budget cuts. My family can’t afford to help. I can’t believe what these medications have reduced me to. I am at the end of my rope and I absolutely don’t know what to do.

  • 167. Skeptic  |  November 19th, 2012 at 3:39 pm

    I’ve been researching adderall because I need something to give me maximum focus to study for the LSAT next October or December. First let me say this, I have seen some negative posts about how these prescription drugs can ruin your life, but Im a skeptic of a few of your stories.

    DuhMentia for example. You have a very compelling story and almost scary because I graduated with a 3.5, honors society, fraternity, basketball player, so on and so forth. In alot of ways Im like you, Im a healthy 25 year old. And when I look at your story it’s a convincing reason why I shouldnt do it. However I look at your story with a alot of skepticism.

    ” Then I began having memory problems and difficulty thinking and concentrating. I had always been a good speller and had a rich vocabulary and was also good with computers but I began struggling to remember how to spell simple things and how do things on the computer.”

    Is that so?? You’re spelling simple stuff right now. This post is atleast 2 paragraphs you had enough concentration to do that. How do you say you cant use computers when you were clearly able to get on the internet, use google, and find this website?

    “This all progressed and I then became depressed which became worse and worse to the point that I seriously lost touch with reality.”

    I have no doubt of your claim that you lost touch with reality as it’s backed with confirmed research. But please tell what does that exactly mean?? What does it mean that you lost touch with reality? Because there’s lots of people out of touch with reality so I dont know what exactly that means.

    ” I am 35 years old and I feel like I am experiencing a combination of dementia, amnesia, and brain damage. I am not exagerating or saying that jokingly either. I am seriously scared to death that I have dementia now as I continue to deteriorate.”

    Wait, so you’re deteriorating and losing all your smarts but you know what dementia is? You have amnesia but you can remember what happened in 2004? I see why the state of Kansas is ignoring you, I would too. You can remember that you had good grades, you were invited to be Phi Beta Kappa, so on and so foth, you can remember your trip the crazy hospital and you can even remember reasoning that you shouldnt have been on the drugs in the first place.

    As I’ve said before your story is compelling because it makes me think that maybe Im good enough the way I am. However my skeptical side makes me think you’re A: Over exaggerating the effects the drug had on you B: You’re trolling this board trying stop people from using it to foward the agenda of some liberal organization. I choose option A, but some of the inconsistencies of your post makes me wonder about option B.

    I have many diagnoses POS-NOS(high functioning autism) apraxia, dyspraxia,sensory integration and ADD/ADHD without hyperactivity(born 2 months early). I’ve been on of meds since I was little, but since most of my disorders overlap its hard to find the right combo of meds that work for me. Ten years of O.T and 16 years of speech training. I think I have about 2 more groups/types of meds to try, out of about 16. And remembers the types of meds in each group vary a lot. Now I’m stuck in community college, bc it would be a HUGE pain of finding a physiologist in a new history and the sad part is my mom has to be there since she knows all the meds in the past I’ve taken. But do not overdose on a drug or go over the limit. Trust me u don’t want withdrawals. But thanks for such a biased thread where people who don’t need it to be in control of their life abuse it. Without realizing the long term affects meds have in u especially addictive ones. By the way I’m 18

    I was given MS (morphine sulfate) Contin by a very caring Dr for 7 years because of a back injury until “I” made the decision to get myself off the junk and suffer with the pain instead of narcs! I suffered for 5 1/2 months with another drs care – giving me drugs (no narcs) to help ease the pain of withdrawal. I believe – no I know – I have suffered with ADD since my early childhood. I’m going to see a shrink in a couple of weeks and after a prelim exam, I’m going to ask him point blank if he believes Adderall will help my symptoms. If I do try the drug and it helps I will continue to use them. If I’m only getting a high with no success in other areas, then I’ll stop – period! Yes, a person can get off drugs if they have the will-power and an understanding Dr to help with the withdrawals.

    You will be much more respected if you use proper grammar and lose the childish adult language – leave that to the street punks that are making minimum wage or living off mommy and daddy!

    There is a SHORTAGE of Adderall XR and generic Adderall in this country right now- as in people with actual ADHD/ADD can’t get their damn meds that they need to function in life. Every day without it is a day fucking lost and frustrated. Why? Because leeches like you who abuse the system until the FDA put a cap on production and until there wasn’t enough for the rest of us. If you people want uppers so bad, get cocaine or meth or speed and leave us the fuck alone. This is a LIMITED RESOURCE. We NEED it. You don’t.

    Psychiatry and psychology are largely faith-based disciplines (sorry Lily, but you swimming into a world of professional BS). The doctors don’t know what they claim to know. I endured neurological damage from the stop-smoking drug Champix (Chantix in USA), and had to drop a semester of graduate school. When my physician realized I wasn’t getting better any time soon and that I was starting law school, he denied I had any problems for a long time (perhaps anticipating a lawsuit – don’t worry doc, there’s a class-action against Pfiser). Anyway, when I didn’t get better, he sent me to a psychiatrist who decided that all of a sudden, in my early 30s, I had suddenly developed bipolarity, ADD, social phobia and another six or so disorders that all required drugs. I overplayed my concentration difficulties and got what I wanted – Adderall.

    My shrink was not willing to consider the similarity of Champix reactions to the new neurological conditions and psychiatric disorders he ‘found’, nor would he address the issue of my developing these disorders later in life, and in such amazing proximity to taking Champix. Do doctors cover for each other? YES. Are they accountable to the public? NO. Can they be controlled and manipulated in the way the article suggests? My shrink certainly can.

    I just wanted the Aderall to perk me up a little and to help me concentrate in law school, so that was the only one of the many prescriptions issued that I filled and consumed. Wow did it help. And so long as I pretend that I have the other conditions I was diagnosed with (despite a complete lack of symptoms in the past year and prior to taking Champix) my shrink does not press me to be treated for them. He just doesn’t want to admit that like the majority of mental health ‘professionals’, he is an egotistical, incompetent faith healer whose every action is divorced from the scientific process of reductionism and logic that supposedly informed his medical training.

    I love my Adderal. My dose is 15mg and this has worked for me for a long time. I take it six days a week, which gives me a little break from the minor insomnia. Lots of people in my law school take Adderal and Ritalin who cannot be credibly diagnosed with an appropriate condition. They take it anyway and they don’t develop addictions or psychosis or whatever else is alleged. They simply succeed in a highly competitive environment full of the top 1% of IQs. Sometimes drugs work if you are intelligent about them. If you’re a dumbass, they’ll work against you no matter what. That is how I reconcile the diversity of experiences represented on this page.

    Now everything works well for me, so long as I take my Adderall. Yes, I’m likely dependent. It is not clear to me if my neurological damage has somehow healed and Adderall has simply made itself necessary, or if I really need it, benefit from it and would not have made a recovery without it. My psychiatrist certainly doesn’t know and isn’t interested in knowing. He is interested in misinformation, which means he effectively knows less than a lay person with research and rational deduction skills, particularly those inquisitive lay persons willing to accept they can’t establish complete certainty (never heard any doctor admit this). Similarly, my physician who prescribed Champix was wilfully blind to its risks. When I asked repeatedly about side effects, he said sore throat and dry mouth, not depression, anger, suicidal and homicidal tendencies, neurological damage and mental incompetence.

    Lessons from my experience:
    1) drugs are bad, but might sometimes be good
    2) doctors are complete frauds when it comes to mental health and addiction – they claim to know what is not knowable – how people react to drugs – there are too many variables to deal with
    3) doctors can be manipulated but only to a point – the more intimately their specialization is connected with faith-based mental health treatments, the easier they are to manipulate
    4) you should only manipulate doctors when necessary
    5) what the article says works will work (sorry Lily, it totally will – you’re a professional guesser and cannot confirm anything with your faith-based junk science)

  • 184. Leema  |  March 8th, 2013 at 9:04 am

    This is horrible. People playing with the system to get high makes it harder for people like me who really need medication. I am 34 and have struggle all my life trying figure out what is wrong with me. Now I’m watching my child go through the same issues and its heartbreaking. I have discovered that when I was a child the schools and doctors told my mom that I had adhd and dyslexia and she ignored it. I thought I was suffering from some type of depression all my life but when the issues came about with my child after testing from having behavioral problems. it was like watching my self as a child all over again. it is sad to me how people abuse drugs that are here to some what (experimental)help us. if you don’t NEED don’t use I don’t want to take anything to make my brain function on a daily basis I think that is crazy I would prefer that my brain just would operate with out all the confusion. and even more terrified that my child may have to take the ish. American’s really know how to stick with government plans to experiment with your life. either way you look at it the pharmaceutical company’s are making billions base off our ignorance and stupidity. They are the one who pumped the poison in our veins since birth leaving us with little to no options. so to have foolish people to go out and look for ways to deceive in order to get these drugs is completely idiotic. population control giving you just enough rope to hang yourself. so they don’t have to BUT IM THE WIT THE MENTAL ISSUE.

Hobbies = ridiculous amounts. Projects started = shit ton. Projects finished = Very few. Relationships, lots and lots. Successful long term relationships = 1… 14 years ago. School and parent teacher conferences were a joke. Was I ever in trouble… haha another joke. Do you think a doctor would perscribe a 30 year old man adderal?

  • 188. The dude  |  April 10th, 2013 at 5:35 pm

    Everyone needs to chill out, adderall is awsome. I just started using it reacationally hell im on 50 mg (with no tolerance) right now (please dont tell me not to), and it makes me fell like im having the best day of my life everytime. Like alchol this is great, but needs to be used with control. I’m not planing on stopping soon, and tried to fake a add by saying a previous concussion was making my foucus shit (sorta true). I felt like i made a very solid argument, i said stuff like “my school work has really picked up and until now i could handel it with my shitty attention span.” My doctor diagnosed me with post concussion syndrum and said theres nothing i can do about the lack of foucuse. A few weeks later I found the courage (with the help of percocet) to tell my mom that adderall is what i need and to call the doctor. A few hours later he called back and said simply “it will not work on you”. I had planned this for weeks and felt i nailed all his bad foucuse tests. Possiably he was on to me, but i think in reality hes just stingy with stuff that can be abused. Anyways now i have to buy my adderall from my friends (a dollar for every 10 mg). I know abuse of meds is wrong, but the affects are so worth the possiablty of addiction or depedence. It makes me so social and able to pull some of the hotter chicks in school, it also makes working way easier and actully fun. All of you who say this is BS obviusly havnt experinced how great it is and how much fuller your life will feel. These people who abuse adderall arnt dope fiends, there not stealing radios out of your car to soupport thier habbit, and thier deffinatly having a better life than you, just because you think drugs are for the week individuals dosnt mean that adderall is a way to drown your problems, in fact adderall dose the oppisite and makes your daily life much fuller and more fun. Anyways thats the end of my rant (fuled by adderall). Also dont comment if your ganna say “get off that shit” i know what im doing, and have the self controll nessceray to use this in the moderation nessecary to keep from becoming addicted/ dependent. Open up your minds people.

When I read this, I really suffer from 99% of this stuff, Without lying. I read the whole article and was like are people really lying about this? I guess so… so what do I do y’all? For real?

    As for the “$3,000, 30-hour screening”….I did that. But I was an undergraduate student at a (“prestigious”) state university with a great disability resource center and under student health insurance…so they did it for free. Now I’m flying solo in the professional world but can whip out my “official test results” from years ago and any physician will still write me an Rx. $10 co-pay per month and I’m sailing…not a bad deal.

  • 191. Lilly  |  April 24th, 2013 at 6:21 am

    Its people like you that make it hard for people like to get ADD medication now. Just because you want to get high. I can not concentrate and its very hard to get the medication because of pill heads like you. I am not failing school because to get the medication it is a long process. I hope that you realize what an asshole you are. If you don’t need Adderall, then you shouldn’t get it.

  • 192. BamaStonerGuy  |  April 24th, 2013 at 12:19 pm

    I’m 23 6,4 255lbs, I got tired of scoring adderall from my buds who got scrips, so I googled how to get adderall from a doctor, and read this page about a month back. Recently I had an ear Inf from all the damn pollen and while I was at my famly care doc I told’em “I think I’ve always had ADHD and I’ve never been diagnosed”.The doc I saw was in his 30s couple years out of med skool(mabe that helped),and he had a student doc with’em too. All he did was tell the student doc to go get the “Adult ADHD Self Diagnosis SHEET” and tell me what he was giving me for ear inf (120mL of hydro syrup, ear drops,nasal spray,and atbiotics), no questions about adhd. Filled out Diagnosis sheet was 20 or so vague questions similar to what was on this page “Have u ever misplaced anything?”& “Have u ever had dificulty completing dificult or boring tasks?” and u had 4 choices Never,Sometimes,Often,and Very Often. I put down mostly Often with a couple very oftens and some sometimes to not over do it. Most of the questions were true about me, but I did exagerate I smoke the chronic what can I say? But they were so vague they could be true of everyone It was a joke I didnt even have to google and study this page. He came back and gave me 30 day scrip of adderall 10 MG Extended release with everything else for the Inf. Told me to see him in month and see how I’m doing on it “The first couple months are tricky, Everyones Doseage Differs” his words, and after my visit next month I’ll get a 3 month supply/possibly up the doseage because of my size “i think they might b wearing off too soon for me doc.” might work. Anyways hope that was helpful.

    AS long as I’m a contributing member of society what should it matter what I do in my free time, Drugs have been around for medical and recreational use for thousands of years if not more and will always continue to be abused as long as were human, this whole Its a diesease ur an addict u got an addiction culture of today needs to go but it won’t It’s apart of the war on drugs that Will Never go away because it employs people on both sides at the expense of the user. CASH is King baby human suffering is 2nd they dont really care about your safety or health they want control and money “We cant have slaves hey i got an idea lets illeagalize everything that’s fun and when people r stupid enough to get caught doing them we’ll arrest them send them to jail make them pay a fine tell them they need help let them go on probation and drug test them and if there stupid enough to get caught again we’ll arrest them again all under the guise of were “helping you” and the whole time ur handing them ur money. dont get me wrong u can get addicted to some stuff and need help but when i was alot stupider and a juvenile i got sent to rehab on my parents dime for a little bit of pot in my ashtray on my second offense 1st drug related offense, $1500 month visit to talk about how drugs r bad learned a bunch a new shit i shouldn’t have learned like how to shake a bottle, and I left worse off then I was when I came in Geeterd up on cheaply made meth and Well groomed for a life in prison all because i was a Dumb Kid who got caught with a lil bit of pot and they could take money from my parents because of my mistake, you shouldn’t have to go to rehab for pot.

    And to everyone wanting this page down and saying drug users have dieseses STFU This is AMERICA I should be able to smoke and take what I want within reason, and talk about it on the internet, and have as many 30rnd mags as I want not cuz I need it BECAUSE I CAN. I’m an AMERI-CAN how about you?

    If you get any type of medication that you do not have a script for and is not over the counter then it’s illegal. It’s a controlled substance, I’m sure there’s always a way though.

  • 194. Mike Roe  |  June 7th, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    You Sir are the reason for all these drug abusing spastic duchbags begging Dr.s for illegal prescriptions. You are the reason why people with real disorders have to jump through hoops and still may get denied proper medical treatment. You should be ashamed of yourself because real ADHD is NO fun I can assure you. Just know that you likely have caused many people with horrible disorders to be denied proper treatment and medication. I pity you.

    What an arsehole its people like you that are causing all the trouble in the media by skyrocketing diagnoses and leading the sheep to believing adhd is just a phyciatrists and uncle sams wet dream shhow me the money, I’ve got adhd and the drugs arnt like. What u think they are. This is not the film limitless these drugs can fuck you up if not taken appropriatley . Iv done every drug under the sun apart from. Heroin or crystal meth I’ve done every amphetamine and pure mdma these drugs are a hell of a lot. More dangerous than all the illegal ones even with all the bullshit thrown in , would strongly advice u not to fuck about with these drugs people with adhd if they help certain individuals but most don’t even like to take them, but to be honest the media and controversy in america is unbelievable in the uk phyciatrists are a lot more strict when it comes down to diagnoses.and treatment, only in america biggest shit stirrers on the planet

  • 197. Michael  |  September 28th, 2013 at 10:46 am

    You I legitimately suffer from ADHD an from your answers to those questions I can see why the doctor had their doubts. Also like someone else said you are hurting people who actually have ADHD by making it harder for them to get mess they might need. For example on certain subjects i cant actual focus for more than a few minutes after that it becomes a fight just to keep reading, but you assholes ( and yes you are assholes) couldn’t care less cause you want to get high. Thank god I was diagnosed at 4 so I didn’t have to worry about shit like this. Seriously think about how you are screwing over people’s lives when you do this and maybe you wouldn’t.

  • 199. Steve  |  October 22nd, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    It’s only a copout ‘disease’ anyway. Get Mummy (who has refused to exercise any discipline for the last 7 years and makes excuses for all of your failings and tells you it is not your fault that you misbehave) to go in and explain to the doctor how it is not her fault that you don’t behave, then look at how teachers are not allowed to exercise any control over students’ behaviour any more and the doc will prescribe Ritalin. That’s how it works here in Australia anyway. The police here call it Absent Dad Disorder but really it stands for Adequate Discipline Deprivation. And yes, I know I will cop a backlash from this.

  • 200. jonathan  |  October 25th, 2013 at 7:53 am

    I agree, fuck you junky faggots!! You want to get high on amphetamines than nit some meth you fucktards! I have adhd and its been a fight trying to get something that works because of bitches that take the shit for euphoria reasons. I have such harsh ADD that my whole life I can barely hold down a job or read a book. I want real “help” and selfish assholes fuck it up. It’d be one thing if the American government didn’t care that dickheads were getting high on it but its just like the bodybuilding supps industry. Anything that works gets pulled off the shelves because of some idiots who abuse it so everyone suffers.

  • 201. Casey  |  October 28th, 2013 at 11:46 pm

    I wish it were this easy. . . Im seeing doctos through county insurance bc i really need the meds. Ive never been on them but know i have it. Since there docs through the county its hard to get th mds bc the givernment pays fkrbthem & its expensive.

    Its annoying to keep reading shit like this. I started seeking help in aug were going into nov its been 3 months & i still cant get help. Its depressing to hope every other week that ill finally get the meds but this has been an unfortunate reality check for me. . .IT NEVER HAPPENS. And probably wont as long as i have medi-cal…

    I feel like im lying and trying too do something wrong by trying to get treated bc of all of the hype an people abusing it.

    Im glad you guys get the pills that you dont need to work or do anything at all.

  • 202. Lulz  |  October 29th, 2013 at 11:20 pm

    I don’t really have an opinion on this but I did take Adderall once. I don’t have ADD but my buddy does and he gave me some before football practice. Best practice of my life and I managed to write half a paper before I fell asleep that night. I liked it and I don’t see why people are so passionate about making sure people can’t get it.

  • 204. Austin  |  February 2nd, 2014 at 10:46 am

    Adderall is wonderful. I don’t find it even remotely addicting and, with no prescription, buy small amounts off friends with intentions to educate myself and complete projects with ease. It’s like NZT. I feel limitless yet I can so easily live without it. Haters can choke on their own pretentious views about this drug. Adderall is abused, but what drug isn’t? It shouldn’t be taken away from the honest “user”.

    Please someone help me!! I have suffered from ADHD my whole entire life, and I can’t take it anymore! I’ve tried to get help from several different docs. I’m open to.medication, alternative treatments, herbal remedies, coping skills, ANYTHING!!! They won’t prescribe me, they won’t even.test me because I got really good grades in school. I still suffer all the side effects though! It takes me like twenty minutes to read one pageof a book. How did I get good grades then? I’ve never read a single textbook in college and graduated with top grades. I’m just really intelligent and can figure things out without having to hread. I haven’t seen a movie in two years…in theatre nor by rentals, you know why? Because I absolutely cannot sit still for two frickin hours!! I’d lose my mind!! I chew my fingernails until they bleed when I have to sit for that long. And again, how did I get through college? I never stayed in class longer than thirty minutes. I’d sign the attendance sheet and dip. Being very intelligent means that I have developed my own methods of coping, but I just can’t handle it anymore!! My hair is falling out in globs because my whole life revolves around dealing with this problem. I’m at wits end, please, does anyone have any suggestions?

  • 210. Joshua  |  July 26th, 2014 at 12:56 pm

    How hard is it to get Adderall prescribed for the first time at age 30? That’s what I’m attempting to do after years without insurance. I slipped through the cracks at my shitty rural school in the ’80s and ’90s, now I’m dealing with the fallout as an adult.

    I know stimulants help my ADD and lethargic depression because I’ve used them for a decade now (without prescription). I’m ready to go legit and get it the honest route. I’ve never increased my dose or frequency of use in all these years. I don’t want to binge or use it as a party drug. Any tips are appreciated.

  • 213. Bob  |  October 26th, 2014 at 9:36 pm

    Thank you very much. In my case, I have it for real, but I do not have enough to concentrate, since I have the same amount, but now I have high pain and medications, which are not good to be able to concentrate. So, if you can help me, I would be very happy, thank you very much and keep up your good job πŸ™‚

    If the FDA goon squad hadn’t banned ephedra and all forms of over the counter speed as well as watered down prescription diet pills like phentermine and replaced with worthless JUNK like orlistat and belziq, then people would not be desperate to get Adderall which is the only form of speed left in this Police State. There are many reasons people need to take a pick me up (amphetamine) and most are not “druggies”. I took ephedra for years and never had any problems and it gave me great energy, euphoria and focus, and I could buy it at Walmart or the local Quick Mart. So people who claim to have “ADHD” do NOT have some special monopoly on amphetimines. People took them for many reasons for DECADES before “ADHD” was even a thought in the back of Big Pharmas corrupt mind. The FDA goon squad is cracking down on amphetimines in this country because they want everyone fat lazy and stupid. Much easier to control that way. ADHD people do NOT have a monopoly on amphetimines so they need to get off their soap box. Ive taken Adderall and it is EXACTLY THE SAME THING AS THE OLD PHENTERMINE/FASTIN DIET PILLS put out by Smith Kline Glasco back in the 90s that the FDA goon squad had discontinued and remarketed as “Adderall.”

  • 221. Joe  |  February 14th, 2015 at 8:56 pm

    LMAO All these sensitive people with ADD freaking out. I have ADD. I have been given Vyvanse, and I’ve tried Adderall. So what if people use it recreationally or not. What does it matter to you? It doesn’t bother me. I get what I need from my meds and if someone enjoys them for a different reason then by all means they should be free to enjoy! It’s their BODY! I wish we could go back a 100 years where drugs could be bought over the counter and Big Brother wasn’t constantly telling us what we can and cannot do with our own body. I mean, it’s gotten so crazy that people can’t even seek cancer treatment unless it’s chemo, radiation, or surgery, and if someone claims to cure cancer outside of these three methods then they get sent to jail! WTF is that about?! I thought this was America where we were free?! I’m so disappointed with the direction America is going…

I don’t need a high…Ineed a medication that helps me function in life for once…so all the negative comments about people being addicts for wanting to get a script for this are idiots!!

    I love this site by the way! Props!

  • 225. Leyd12  |  April 23rd, 2015 at 4:30 pm

    It’s for this reason here it’s harder for me to get the medicine I need every month. Soon they will take them off the market because of people doing this. I have ADD, it’s not fun and life is much harder. I wish I didn’t have to take adderall it’s not fun. But it’s the only way I can function like a normal person. Instead of abusing drugs, why don’t you put your time and energy into getting a job.

  • 226. Random ADHD sufferer  |  April 25th, 2015 at 6:00 am

    Wow, why would anyone want to fake ADHD just so they can get the medications that come with it. I have ADHD but I can’t get the medication but I have a few friends who also have ADHD and have the medication, they say it’s very hard to get the medication because of people who fake ADHD or because people ask people with ADHD for there medication. Please stop trying to fake ADHD, it causes problems for the people who actually need the medication to get it.

  • 227. CS  |  April 28th, 2015 at 10:55 am

    I have read the article and the several years worth of comments preceding my note. I now understand why no study actually shows any long term benefit to taking the stimulants, and in fact the large study in Quebec (done by a Cambridge, Mass. think tank) shows only an increase in drop outs in males and in depression in females who took the drugs. No improved job prospects, no improved college graduation rates, etc.
    Over 90% of those who take a stimulant abuse and share it. What it does do, from the Quebec study, is make kids less a problem in class. Basically, it shuts them up. They are more manageable. Now I know why teachers love it.
    Sad, but I guess it has some benefits.

  • 229. Special K  |  May 27th, 2015 at 9:59 pm

    Tomorrow is the big day. I am starting my monthly meetings with a psychologist through behavioral health services. I am overwhelmed with an insight of despair, that him / her will misdiagnose me, and give me some kind of medicine that I absolutely don’t need or want. I was brought to this website to gain some kind of knowledge to convince a doctor that I have adhd, and to prescribe me with some very affective medicine. I have read everyone of these stories from all of you, and I still have my doubts of any glorius fulfillment tomorrow. I am prepared to go to any lengths to achieve my goal of obtaining a prescription to benzedrine / adderal xdr. I am 46 and in a nursing home. ( I put myself here for rehabilitation purposes ) the state knows that I am suicidal / drug & alcohol crazed, I have got their attention with a whopping $700.00 S.S.I. check – that the nursing home receives, except $30.00. The only drugs I get are blood pressure, depression & vitamins. I sleep during the
    day and mess with my computer at night. Eat, sleep & shit. I have been here too long without any drugs or alcohol to feed a distant pleasure. I feel hopeless, but not depressed because I have been sober for 2.5 years now. Some patients here piss me off, always bragging about what they have and take. ( I totally smell snitches ) and I see how they abuse their medicines – bootleging, snorting, and slamming ( when you have a fresh point / in the wrapper ) All I want to acheive is, a doctor sympathizing with me and giving me a helping hand. Some adhd medicine could be beneficial to me. I am lethargic and have trouble concentrating, sleeping all the
    time and I am overweight. 6’3 – 270 lbs.

    I really liked hearing all your stories, the biggest majority of you don’t need amphetamines – because you are thrill
    seekers. I already know, because I have been there. Put yourself in my shoes / I bet that you wouldn’t last one month here – without winning for a xannax or a loratab.

  • 230. confused  |  July 15th, 2015 at 3:37 pm

    I wa s asked during marriage counseling by the counselor if I had ever been diagnosed with ADHD. this was upsetting and I kind of felt like he was on my husband’s side and Saying I was the crazy one. I had been looking into it and wondering if I may have this. I am definitely a skeptic not sure if I even believe in it. I took a handful of the online test and scored very high. reading some of these posts scare me to go into my doctor and tell him how I feel about this because you might think I’m trying to get drugs. the only drug I abused is coffee. is this add and Adhd for real. what about alternative treatment

The only REAL problem is 2 many judgemental, closed-minded people in the world, 2 many people who believe their beliefs are the ONLY right ones. And why is someone wanting to get high such a bad thing? Just a quick WTF story: i was on Adderall for 6 yes, then started taking Suboxone 4 a very longstanding opiate addiction, my doc was aware of this,and this went on for over a year& a half until suddenly one day he announced a NEW RULE:if u were taking Suboxone, he would no longer prescribe Adderall because Adderall’s prescribing information states it should be used with caution in patients who have or have had a history of addiction.
    Wow. Also, IRONY: one of the key symptoms in adults with ADHD is a history of substance abuse/addiction.

    Seriously, you can go to dirty doctors all over the place that will prescribe Adderall. The patient just lies and there you go. You have a prescription. Then you go home and drink with it. What a combination. Heart attack waiting to happen.
    Woman get it to loose weight and have lots of energy to clean their homes.
    The only thing most of them get you to do to qualify as having ADD is filling out a small form and there you have it.
    Even when I have called the doctor and told him that my grown daughter has an addictive behavior, he continually prescribed it. The highest dosage you can give. Thanks to one doctor my daughter is having major problems. I called the next doctor and explained what she was doing and they probably won’t
    prescribe it to her anymore. However, the first of three that I know of prescribed it for years.

    TRUE: If you know how to play the doctors you can get anything you want. I was seeing a psych since age 5-i can read them like a book.
    TRUE: Abuse & faking this is hurting real sufferers (like me)
    TRUE: I have ADD, buy am discriminated against because of an opiate issue. Been in control for 8 years, but when I was high, my psychiatrist (who was actually an addiction SPECIALIST LMAO) prescribed Adderall, Xanax and other mood stabilizers.
    TRUE: Now I’ve had a history of being sober 8 years, no amphetamine abuse history, and the witch who’s not even a doctor is making me jump through hoops
    TRUE: I was given hours long neuropsych tests both as a child & 5 years ago (I’m 34) that both agree I’m severely afflicted but must take AN OTHER 4 hour test (they’re fun though, so that part is okay… ducks I’ve waited a year for help)
    All that being given said, the people manipulating the doctors (I did it as a kid to get out of school but that’s different) are SCREWING us real sufferers. ALSO, the doctors are discrimators (some), so if you’re honest it most likely will kill any chances of help if you have a prior abuse history. I’d even said the pharmacy could dole out the meds a few days at a time. So…..will I get the meds? Yes. Cause of my past it will take a bit longer.

    I feel desperate and don’t know where to turn, now picking up a few Adderall here and there when I can find them. I don’t what to go to the doctor.. I have insurance and a great job, but haven’t been to the doc since high school (I’m 26), let alone a psychiatrist or something of that sort… I don’t want them to think that I’m trying to do something wrong or trying to deceive them…I guess I’ve always thought of prescriptions with a negative outlook and I’m embarrassed or ashamed to walk in asking for drugs. Heck, I veryy rarely drink alcohol! But my mind is out of balance. I’ve resorted to casual internet reading for the past few years trying to determine if it’s ADD, ADHD asperges , depression.. or just some of one leading to another, or something else entirely.o very the last 6 years I’ve tried supplements, stacks, piracetam, choline, and other nootropics but nothing works. Adderall is the only thing ive ever taken that clears my thoughts, levels my thinking so I can be productive. It’s not a matter of focus.. I focus all the time on all the thoughts flowing through my brain, but they are erratic and scattered, overwhelming, so I end up doing nothing. I feel like it is going to have a big impact on my life very soon and I’m kind of scared. What did you do MEESH? What should I do.. thank you !

    you’re actually a piece of shit for writing this blog and spreading misinformation. you’re actually the worst type of person. I hope you fucking kill yourself

  • 250. Susan  |  October 23rd, 2016 at 10:14 am

    wtf is wrong with you?

    Some people really do have a legit disorder, and people like you are making it harder for those of us who REALLY do have ADHD, who really HAVE had their quality of lives suffer. Its harder to get medications now because of fcked up people like you.

    god I hate drug addicts.

    go to a halfway house. If you are trying to get ADHD medication when you DONT have ADHD, you DO have a diagnosable mental illness.

    Its called a substance abuse disorder.

    Except I don’t buy the bullshit that its an “illness” Because you CHOOSE to be addicts, at least the first time.

    what a loser.

    This information is pretty good advice. I’m 21, in an intense University college program, and completely snowed my psychiatrist. Upon meeting her I had to have an interview to determine if testing for ADHD would be suitable for me. The interview was approximately one hour long. She asked me TONS of questions from when I was a child. PRO TIP: If you didn’t have any ADD symptoms as a child then you don’t have it now. If you don’t have any stories about your childhood make some up. Also during the entire interview I constantly kept tapping my foot the entire time to show restlessness. My best advice. Don’t overplay it, don’t be fooled the doctors are highly educated BUT if you play your cards right and do your homework you can get the script.

    okay I legitimately have ADHD, was told I had one of the worst cases the doctors had seen. I struggled hard in school and showed little interest in school as a whole. I never took anything as a kid. It wasn’t until I realized I was struggling every day at work at the age of 26 when I decided to talk to my doctor about treatment. They prescribed me Adderall XR.

    I’ve been on it for six months, and have been extremely careful not to abuse it. I’ve rarely taken more than the prescribed amount, and have stuck to my dosage. Maybe once or twice in a six month period.

    If there’s any risk of it getting banned in the US, it’s going to be because of the abusers. For the sake of people who need treatment for a potentially crippling mental disorder, please stop abusing the drug.

    Funny all the people with ADHD write the longest post. Way to focus with no meds. Myself I can only read the short comments.

  • 254. Oliver  |  February 7th, 2017 at 12:40 pm

    It’s because of people that fake symptoms and lie to doctors for the purpose of their own selfish, stupid,perceived benefit, that a person with a true problem has an even more difficult time obtaining quality of life comparable to said faker, and all for the purpose of obtaining medication or benefits designed for the disabled. The moron that wrote the article should be ashamed for encouraging and educating other scammers to do the same. Loser, there isn’t a better title for such a person. Complete loser.

  • 255. Oliver  |  February 7th, 2017 at 12:53 pm

    The medical community has a word to define you idiots that unjustifiably seek meds. You are called malingerers. New testing is in place for the proper diagnosis of ADHD and it has proven to weed out the malingerers quite well. Furthermore, ADHD diagnosis will be referred to a qualified psychoanalyst so that an unbiased, un-tainted diagnosis may be obtained. If you think you’re going to fool a professional that has 12+ years education in his/her field, you may be diagnosed as stupid, but certainly not ADHD.

  • 256. Jake  |  March 13th, 2017 at 1:55 am

    As of Mar. 13, 2017 doctors have become well aware of multiple people who have purposely and willingly lied and/or faked their ‘symptoms’ in the attempt to be percribed Adderall. I speak from experience. I cannot believe that this post has seen activity for the past 7+ years. The extent of popularity of this drug and it’s use is unfathomable. It’s recreational side effects are, (for me atleast) euphoria, sedation and reality bending high. Overall, the best high one could have. Although, with every single pill I swallow, my friendship ends with one person, and I’ve taken lots of them. Addiction is not easy, when you have none left youre desperate for that high which made you so happy. I am not implying that this drug be eradicated, but that it’s use and misuse will eventually be a downside to whomever is consuming this medicine. Jake outtie ✌

    All you ADD and ADHD people are such bullshitters. You think your symptoms are not experienced by everyone and just because you think your problems are extreme you have to take amphetamines to focus? LOL you stupid bitches, that stuff doesn’t target “ADD/ADHD”, it just gets you high and your body starts building a tolerance too. Enough of you retards go on public forums and brag about using higher than your prescribed amount. Enough of you stupid bitches also sell it on the streets, we dont even need doctors. Waste amphetmine addict bitches.

  • 258. That gal  |  April 30th, 2017 at 6:28 pm

    Do not ever mention you have/had depression

  • 259. ISUM  |  May 13th, 2017 at 10:58 am

    Well, that’s a first. After reading and this post, I have definitely seen both ends of the spectrum: nootropics and lying to doctors.

    Interesting to see the other side of the world nonetheless.

    Everyone keeps giving negative cred to the person who wrote this to get it for their own gains, but some people who came across this, like myself, found it because they KNOW they have all of the symptoms of ADHD and that it’s ruining their life, but their psychiatrist just wants to blame it all on anxiety or depression and get them started on an SSRI or even worse try out an 800$ SNRI drug called Strattera (luckily insurance covered it for me) where the meds made you sick and irritable and in a dark hole of depression reaching to alcohol every night even after they’ve stopped taking it because it was their only solace. They’re trying to find something to hold their lives together like glue, to be able to juggle classwork, getting assignments done on time, work, housework, having ANY ability to relax without being stuck in a computer which really just keeps us more awake. I got sick of trying, when I know it used to work for me as a kid, but let’s not kid ourselves into thinking every person prescribes adderall like candy. The government insurance paid for psych I went to was a complete bitch to my face and said “You can’t expect to enjoy and jump out of bed motivated” and I was just like “I just want to be able to not fail school because I can’t juggle time or tasks for jack shit. I just want to begin to have a normal life like I used to when I was prescribed it when I was 10”
    But they still prescribed a drug that made me want to commit suicide (that was their black label warning) over a drug that’s just mentally addicted. Newsflash. Amphetamines only cause 4 deaths a year through clinical medical tests. SSRI/SNRI cause 400 and more through suicidal thoughts alone. Not only that, but there’s so much that’s psychologically addictive. Alcohol – (which is the worst of them all as far as physical symptoms and mental problems go), Caffeine, etc. Amphetamines are psychologically addictive but they are certainly not worse long term like alcohol is. They don’t even have physical withdraw symptoms like opiates do!
    If you’re having a bad time on amphetamines when you know you have ADHD, take LESS. Less is more. Don’t just over dose like eating an entire pot brownie and saying that weed is bad because it got too intense. I bet you I can find more overdoses on caffeine than there are on adderal.

    Liars always make things worse for people who actually need help. Losers, smh. For example, women who lie about rape make it harder on actual victims. Addicts need help, but they are soooo annoying to be around. So much self-delusion and selfishness. Happy when they’re high and things are going their way. Miserable and lashing out when things don’t go their way. In the US, I’m surrounded by excuse-making, overgrown babies.

  • 262. Jay  |  November 20th, 2017 at 8:14 pm

    You should tell people how to buy it off street if you can’t get it from doctors, I tried for past 2 yrs and I do have ADD but somehow they write me other meds like antidepressants no help.
    I don’t know how to buy from street

  • 263. Legit ADHD  |  December 6th, 2017 at 1:59 pm

    I am 51, I have legit been diagnosed with OCD and ADHD. I went through a barrage of testing of over 750 questions on 4 different tests. I have been seeing my Dr for over a year now. I have never been one to get addicted to anything that needed rehab to get off of, and never used legal drugs just to get high, but to see so many are doing that, makes it only a matter of time before the drug is removed from the market all together. Those of us who use it legally and as dosed and for the real diagnosis, will suffer, not the young millennials who get it to abuse.

    Hello, I am a 42 yr Young women who my entire life never believed in taking man made chemicals that the government want people on and addicted to make the pharmaceutical co. Rich. These pills don’t cure a daMn thing just mask the systems. Well on day I was made to get evaluated by a phycologist. Of course I answered every question trufuly. When I was finished the psych said I had a sever case of add . I said bulls**t! We got to talking and I said y do u think that about me? Cuz of some question air? He began to ask me y I wasn’t diagnosed earlier in life. I said maybe by the time I was in 11 grade I had already moved52″ times and attended more school’s then i could count. He began to ask me if I have trouble paying attention. I said of course who the hell doesn’t? He said even when ur interested do u zone out. I said yes to a point that I’m trying so hard to listen but every word that comes out of that persons mouth sounds like charlie browns teacher….. Wawawawa. And all I do is see the red car passing behind them. I honestly thought that was normal and it happens to everyone. NO absolutely not normal and that was the very first question. So now I’m thinking about what the hell is normal?? As he began showing me things that I never thought anything about….WOW it literally blew my mind! I’m not stupid or slow, I actually have trophies for being on the honeroll for the entire year. Yes I’m dislycsic , yes we moved way to many times and yes I missed72 days my junior yr and 86 days my senior and still graduated with a,b and c. So absolutely I thought these drs are pill pushers ! I hate big parm and the government but when I decided to giv e adderall a try for one month I will say without a doubt its changed my life for the better! Not all drs are jackasses. I know now that most just want to help you. Please don’t try to get them for personal use cuz not that u care but its really destroing any help that some us truly do need! My kiddos actually c a difference in me! Thank you to the doctors who really do care! And believe me u might think u r fooling the docs to get what u want but just remember they r trained and know a hell of a lot about physiology and way smarter than u think.U might walk out with a script but its all a mind game.Keep your intergraty and don’t underestimate the power of phycology! Take care my friends….
