The Adderall Me

Wow this is not what I was expecting to read when thinking about this article. I think that the points are very valid and true in the sense that Adderall can do wonders for people. Yes, I understand that drugs aren't good and that you shouldn't have to take drugs to get work done. But in all reality, why not take a couple pills to help you study or read a 200 page book in one night? This whole article really talked Adderall up and praised how the author was able to concentrate and be extremely productive while taking the pill. Honestly, he said that he took the pills for a week to do this study. I personally think he had gotten his hands on a few more since then. Maybe people who haven't taken the pill before would have a problem with it because it isn't natural but if you've tried it before, odds are you tried it again. Especially because there are no crazy side effects that you could die or have a heart attack or anything, I don't see the problem i guess. Another thing it is that Adderall is so easy to get - especially in college. Being able to concentrate and get everything done in one shot is a college student's dream.

This is a True Life: I'm Addicted to Adderall

Now after watching this episode for about two minutes, I am completely turned off to the drug.

Overall, there are obviously pros and cons about the drug. These opinions can change depending on what source your getting the information from. I still don't have a problem with it but I'm a lot less likely to take the drug after watching the episode and not reading the article.


  1. I agree with you. The idea seems harmless until you realize what you are getting yourself into. Taking this dream drug without a doctors prescription can be dangerous as shown in your video. Great idea using the video to show real life situations.

  2. Great video. I started to watch it and couldn't stop. The high school student/athletes story especially was interesting.He was determined to prove that he could make it without the drug.
