To l-amphetamine? Shoot, that's not interesting at all! :b L-amphetamine would be the non-psychoactive isomer if I remember right; it won't do anything 'cept maybe clear your sinuses a bit. In the U.S. you can buy l-methamphetamine over the counter in Vick's inhalers. (They put "levmetamfetamine" on the side, lol.)

Even if it were psychoactive, and the amphetamine were a part of its effectiveness, I wouldn't worry about it. People w/ ADD take stimulants for years with little problems with tolerance - sometimes they might need a holiday but the tolerance is not always so profound as the media might have you believe.

(course, maybe you shouldn't believe me, I'm prone to being very liberal wrt to the "fun" medications)
