In reply to dexadrine question?, posted by geno on April 1, 2002, at 9:13:10

Geno, caffeine does little for me, but valerian root (used for relaxation & sleep gave me the jitters). Obviously, meds which should do one thing will affect some in a paradoxical manner.

Like 3 Beer, I think Dexedrine tends to make people more sociable, talkative, & outgoing. It certainly does for me, but then I'm not at all a shy person. But on Dexedrine, I need to remember to keep my mouth a little more shut as it really speeds & focuses my brain & my mouth has always followed.

My grown son has Asperger syndrome, a form of autism with extremely high intelligence. He's a reserved person, disliking social situations & doesn't wish to change but even he, when on his Dexedrine, can deal with social situations easier.

I think you may find a point interesting. I watched a documentary about the brain. It gave two groups of people stimulants. One group knew what they were getting & what to expect from the medication. They very much enjoyed the effects of it. The other group were told they were getting a placebo & didn't expect any physical/mental changes but they still felt them. Due to the fact they didn't know what was happening, they became very agitated & anxious. They reacted differently even though the changes were the same in both groups. It seems that what you may expect can have an effect on how you'll react.
