Hi Ya!

I know medicine changes according to fads n fashions...I have a 1951 magazine ad here for a med called "Norodin"-Methamphetamine Hcl, 2.5 5mg tabs. This medication is being advertised for depression, and weight control~

~"Norodin"-psychomotor stimulant@antipressant, sure this was 50 tears ago.. BUT i converse with fok who taks Desoxyn (same thing) and done sofor years, i womder if infact they are 'treating' their Narcolepsy, or simply prefer the effects the pills have on them.

I'v taken 6 legal dope company AD's-and gen Ritalin is the only 1 which doesn't make me fat, and stupid-it is of course illegal to give for low moods, luckly i have an issue with concentration, and overactivity:).

Cheers
