“What Adderall Does to Your Brain”


High Times takes a good look at the chemistry and epidemiology of “America’s Favorite Amphetamine“: “If you’re one of the roughly 6.4 million kids or 10 million adults in the U.S. diagnosed with the condition, you’ve probably taken adderall.”

  1. This is a very interesting and thought-provoking article from High Times. I took Adderall for about two months in 2001. It was supposed to help me “focus” and “concentrate.” Actually, I am quite good at “focusing” and “concentrating.” I stopped taking Adderall. I told my uncaring psychiatrist that it did not work! It cause me not to focus, to not remember things, and to feel like my brain was devoid of all intelligent thought. Coffee cause me the same reaction. I don’t know why. I failed an Algebra test in college because I studied under the effects of coffee. Yesterday, I mistakenly drank coffee and couldn’t remember the name of the guest pastor at my church or the name of the small town where my Grandmother taught school near where I went fishing Saturday night. I had also mistakenly drank iced coffee on Saturday. Like everyone else, I have an addition to an individual personality; an individual body chemistry; all ignored by psychiatry and lately ignored by “regular medicine.”
