I don't think Matt was/is referring to the Vyvanse in particular as a med he abused. From this very honest post:
>>I was on 60mg of dextoamphetamine for about 2 years. It was fine I just tended to want to get high on amphetamine. I would go a couple weeks without abusing it and then I would have a binge period where i would repeatdly take them over again after they wore off. I HATED the crash. Before this I was on adderall and ofcourse I abused that.
>>I abused stimulants until I had a siezure that casued me to forget everything that I was doing that day. I couldnt talk for a couple minites because I lost my speech capibility for a couple min.
Just helping clarify, I hope - 10der
PS - Matt - Plz, plz do anything you can to stay away from street meth. This drug is nasty, evil. It will NEVER be the answer. I am scared for you. I want you to stay around. The stuff is potentially deadly in many ways. Plz ask someone you trust for help if you think you will keep turning to this. Occasional use can change to daily so fast you won't know what happened. I am praying for you.
