Okay, So What Is Adderall?
Well, we aren't doctors over here, but if you do a quick search you will find that Adderall is a prescribed medication that helps folks with ADHD to slow-things-down. It helps them to focus on tasks without following up on every impulse to do or look at something else.
It's normally first prescribed after receiving a childhood diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and is often continued or discarded when the individual is old enough to choose for themselves.
In short, anyway.
What Are The Users and Abusers Saying In The Documentary?
Seems that some of the "true" patients that receive it feel that it has little to no impact on their symptoms, while others reap it's benefits. This is to be expected, but the purpose for the documentary is to show why college kids without ADHD are abusing it.
The abusers state that they use it to gain extra clarity and focus when prepping for big tests and exams while others use it to get high. Now of course, drugs on a college campus are nothing new, but why Adderall? What is it about Adderall that has students trying to edge above the curve?
The professionals they brought in seem think that the kids are playing with fire, due to the side-effects associated with the drug. They talk about cons such as days without sleep, psychosis and increased anxiety that can easily send anyone to the hospital...
But they also talk of the reasons why students take the "performance-enhancing drug" to surpass the mind's normal limitations.
So Is It Really That Big Of A Problem?
What do you think? Do you think people taking Adderall that don't need it is the same as abusing drugs like Meth? Are you worried that the doctors have created another drug that they can't control?
We feel this documentary, short as it is, served it's purpose in starting a conversation about Adderall abuse. And here in this review...We can continue it ^_^
