im just visiting this site looking for facts on adderol. and i read a few of your posts,and uh, some people who posted said that they got thier children adderol and its not working and its making them depressed and they dont know what to do about it, and i thought that i should share my knowledge on adderol for these concerned parents. now theres add adhd ld's and whatever else and a doctor will give your kid a test and if your kid shows some of the add characteristics then they have add, right? WRONG! some kids dont want to go to school, some kids would rather play than work, they are kids, they dont want to be responsible and further their knowledge in lititure, arithmatic, or history, they want to play in the park, listen to music, hang out with friends, go the mall or whatever kids do. and if you do have add or what ever then the adderol then does its job and helps them concentrate, mellows them out, and everything else, but if a kid doesnt have add or whatever then it will have a reverse effect, adderol is sold on the streets as a speed, it has a value of from 1-3 dollars for every 10mg, when you take speed you can snort it or pop it, pop it means to eat it, and the effects are that you speed out, your heart rate increaces you concentrate more, you feel the need to do something, you short term memory decreases while youre on the drug,and it makes you feel really happy, but when the drug wares off the sarentonen levels in your brain are all messed up and you get depressed and edgy. and also your body builds up a tolorence to any drug that you put in it so if you take 10mg of adderol a day then you will build up a tolorence really quick and you wont get the speed effects from the drug but rather just get burned out right away and get depressed and edgy or mellow or whatever. my personal belief is that when it all comes down to it, its all about 2 things the kid and the parents, maybe its the kid, maybe theyre bored, they could be too advanced for the schooling that they are recieving, maybe its the parents, they could be not providing the kid with the nessessary things that their child needs to be happy and content with their child hood. who knows, everyone has their own reasons, maybe the child wants more attention, maybe the parent works too much and never spends time with thier kid, you know your reasons, ask your kid what their reasons are maybe they know maybe they dont, but what do i know is that im just a 19 year old kid who has been in foster homes, treatment centers, group homes, and even jail since i was 12 years old. and i can tell you this, ive abused adderol as a drug ive snorted 90 miligrams at a time i know what it does to me and i know how it affected my behavior, and i will never give anything even remotely similar to adderol to my children if im ever blessed with any. a doctor told me that i had add when i was 15 and i refused medication because i know that i dont have add, i concentrate when i want to, i pay attention when i want to, and thats what it comes down to. one last thing, through my years in custody ive learned that the way that i act is the way that i act some lable that a doctor gives me(add) doesnt justify my actions in any way, and if you hold someone responsible to their actions with reasonable consequences then they will get around their problem or illness if you wanna think like a doctor.
