I wonder how "widespread" pstim abuse really is. I take mine (Adderall) exactly as directed and would never divert it to anyone. The same is true for benzos. I don't abuse my prescribed meds (wouldn't enjoy that anyway) and suspect the vast majority of users are the same.

Strattera is also helpful for ADD, but I love the focus that Adderall provides. I wish the government would just relax and let us take our meds in peace. I know my pdoc is exasperated about the hoops he has to jump through to prescribe scheduled meds -- he's very conscientious and watches for signs of abuse, and I expect that most pdocs are the same.

I'm getting pretty sick of the fear the government agencies instill in so many doctors -- just let them do their work and heal those of us who need it. I seriously doubt that many pstim or benzo users would waste their valuable prescriptions by sharing them with others. I think it has more to do with the powerful lobby the drug cos. have to encourage use of still-under-patent drugs, which of course are bigger money makers.

Of course, this ties in with the goals of our current administration, who above all want to maximize corporate profits regardless of the health of consumers.
