Modern humans must learn how to relate to psychoactives
responsibly, treating them with respect and awareness,
working to minimize harms and maximize benefits, and
integrating use into a healthy, enjoyable, and productive life.

  repeated oral Amphetamines (daily)


Before Adderall: My friend was an intelligent, rational woman. Well liked and beautiful both inside and out.

After Adderall: She was prescribed 20mg of adderall immediate release 2 x per day. She had EVERY negative side effect while taking at the prescribed dose. When she self increased her dose, she became delusional, psychotic and paranoid. She was taking 180-to 200 mg per day. She was experiencing paranoia, was either WIDE awake all them or sleeping for days on end. I will get detailed but the last time we saw each other it was a nightmare.

Adderall completely changed this wonderful, loving girl into someone I did not think she could become. I lost her to this drug……..It stole her from me…..and from herself.
