> what are the addiction risks to cylert/pemoline for adults. I know there have been references to its dangers as potential source of abuse, but therein it ends. Are there cases of addiction, and if so, where are the links?

I think the probability that anyone would abuse cylert is quite small. Unlike other stimulants that are more likely to be abused, cylert can be prescribed over the phone without the rigmarole of triplicate prescriptions. I think it has little street value. The withdrawal effects are not much. Monkeys won't work to get it, and they seeem to usually know a fun drug when they try it. Cylert takes a long time to act, and it does so gradually; thus there is no 'rush' of pleasure to make us cry for more. On the other hand, I am sure that some people do potentially harmful things with it. It has some popularity among chess players as a 'smart drug' and I'd assume some of them use it unwisely. I think it is safe to say that it is very unlikely that you would use it in an addictive or abusive manner.
I have been using it for several months and my only objection is that I have not found it very effective at keeping me awake or focused or undepressed. It does some good tho.
Maybe you have ben seeing that stuff on the net put out by the kooks and gangsters of the health food mafia. (Not that there are no valuable products coming from that source)
