This is about ADHD and it's 'medicine'.

Search Sir Ken Robinson "Changing School Paradigms".

The medicine is killing the youth.

I too have been on A.D.H.D medication and I must say that it has helped me tremendously. I used to be on concerta but that made me feel like an emotionless zombie. The **** also made me never want to eat. Thinking about food would nearly make me throw up. Then my doctor switched me to Stratera. It's not as bad as before but it still makes me a lot less hungry than I would be if I were not on my pill.
#4 to #3 - insanefreak ONLINE (03/29/2013) [-]
Search it?

Dude, my mom force fed me rilatine and concerta for ten years. I know what it does more than most doctors by now.

It's a mind-destroying drug that actively takes away any sense of realism. After about seven years of its use (on average), people start to become insane in their desire to feel alive again. Because nothing gets through their shell. And sometimes, they do extreme things. A few crazy murderers in Belgium were taken these pills (try googling Kim de Gelder, who assaulted a creche here).

And then they say they only want to help us. Medics these days are just interested in money.

except I also have ADHD and I take concerta. I can honestly say that for long periods on end, if you take no break and you take a lot (more than needed (not necessarily more than prescribed)) then you may start to lose interest in life, as it grows boring and dull and emotionless. If you take it when it's actually useful (IE. work or school) with the right amount (talk to your doctor about dosage, explain how it affects you), then it does WAY more good than harm. It has made my life wonderful in the fact that I can actually sit down and do some work and have normal conversations. If you have the wrong dosage, ya, it'll **** with you. Same with almost any medicine.
#59 to #16 - anon (03/30/2013) [-]
My girlfriend was diagnosed ADHD and thought all those things about herself and took the medicine believing it helped her. She stopped and actually did better in school, and she has normal conversations. ADHD it's symptoms and things that help are all perception. If you don't believe in yourself you believe it helps. She didn't have ADHD. She had a lack of confidence.

Please don't confuse a misdiagnoses with ADHD being a fallacy. ADHD is a real issue, unfortunately we live in a time where we don't spend much time on mental health and just try to throw pills at it to make problems go away.

Medication is great, if it is being used correctly under a correct diagnoses.

Unfortunately there's no blood test or urine test for mental illness.
User avatar #55 to #16 - guymandude (03/30/2013) [-]
Same. my mother refused to give me any meds until my highschool years, and after a while of the horrible 'trial and error' period, I found a dose that allows me to actually do my work and still feel like myself.

I don't know about that particular case, but "roid Rage" has to do with Steroids, not A.D.H.D. Medication. now relating to this story, I used to take it through middle school and through high school. The **** constantly made me feel terrible. I always felt shakey and I was easily irritable when I was on the medication. Off of it, I felt more like myself. I had fun and didn't feel like I constantly had to be doing something relating to school and **** . I stopped taking the stuff when I graduated, and have been going to University and succeeding. Sure, I feel I have to work a bit harder than everyone else, but it's worth it to be able to feel like myself.

whats bull **** ? that i have A.D.H.D? that my mom kept me drugged and upped the dose every time i acted out even a little? that medicare(medicaid i don't ******* remember) stopped paying for my adderall and would only approve generic medicine. i'm not lying here i would lie about this.(though you don't know me) ok i remember what doseage i was on it was two 250 tablets. don't call ******** on me i'm telling the truth.
User avatar #50 to #49 - magikarpforlife (03/30/2013) [-]
i dont doubt that you have adhd, i dont doubt that your medicaid stopped paying for adderall, i do doubt the dosage, even if it was generic, it is based off a big brand. concerta, adderall, ritalin, liquADD, straterra, all those go no where near 500mg. it just seems like it is unnecessary to have that many mgs when you can just copy a big company like generic brands normally do.

I've been having problems focusing all through school. This is my senior year, and for some reason I just needed help. I couldn't do my homework. I just couldn't. I asked my mom to make an appointment so I could get on Adderall.
At first, it was good. I could focus in class, finally. but then... I started getting angry. Like, constantly angry. I'm an easy going person. I don't get angry, and when I do I just internalize it. but not now. I snapped at my friends and classmates, even my parents. I got my work done, sure, but... I felt different.
Then one day, walking through the halls... I thought... why not just end it? It would be easy. That thought kept repeating. It would be easy. I've seen people get advice on /b/, I'd just ask what pills I could scrounge up to go out peacefully (I know I'd never stomach hanging or jumping or cutting of any sort. Plus, I didn't want to leave a mess). I was even going to call the suicide hotline, just to give myself a chance. I knew people would care. But they'd get over it, in time. Everyone died. It would be easy. And what scared me the most is I was so calm about it all. I didn't care. It was just... easier to let it all go.
I was driving home when I just started bawling in the car. Full on mental breakdown. I couldn't believe what was going through my head.
That was the last time I ever took Adderall, and the last time I had thoughts of suicide. I told my doctor and she said it was a super rare side effect, but... **** , man. I didn't think I was capable of thoughts like that. It still terrifies me. No grade is worth that, man. Nothing is.
((TLDR Adderall almost killed me. Don't do drugs))

That reminds me of when my doctor prescribed me with these antidepressant pills, perphen-amitrip. (I was 17 at the time.) My mom had just passed away and he assumed I was suicidal, even though I didn't even think about it. So after about two weeks of taking them, I became so apathetic. Like, I just didn't care about anything. Then the suicidal thoughts started coming. Our high school was divided into two buildings- one for 10th-12th grade and one across the street for 9th grade. I had to walk across the street to the 9th grade building because that was the only building with french class, which I took. First I started thinking about accidentally getting hit by cars, then I started thinking about throwing myself into the traffic. It was weird because I would think about it everyday, about how easy it would be and how no one would miss me. I almost did it once. ******* scared the **** out of me.
User avatar #126 to #68 - OrionPax (03/30/2013) [-]
I'm sorry that happened, man. No matter what anyone puts you on, if you start to feel like that, stop taking it. Talk to your doctor about it, and if they don't do anything about it, find a new doctor.

I had taken that stuff before football games this past year, and I would not eat, and I'd get angry just like you said. Especially when our team was a losing team. One game we lost so bad, 62-0 and I had pulled my calf muscle, that I told my girlfriend to **** off, and proceeded to crack my remote to my tv.

<Pic related, it's my remote.

I understand what your initial message here was. I agree that, in the US at least that I know of, we over medicate our population. We're too quick to reach for the pill bottle instead of researching what the real issue is. But I have to say, I don't agree with your final line. My mom is Manic Depressive and Bipolar, she has to go for one month out of the year without medication because of some weird ****** up government issue. During that month she turns into a different person, an animal almost. She becomes a bare nerve just waiting to twitch at the slightest stimuli. I hate watching her go through that, it really gets to me(this after a lifetime of seeing her go through it multiple times just to try to find the right concoction of meds). I understand that she isn't the general population but I've seen a lot of young and confused mentally ill kids that don't know what to do or where to go. They have commercials and doctors on one side telling them to take pills and then they have society on another side telling them they're weak if they take medicine or that they don't actually need medicine. It's a real problem. I myself have never relented to a medication supplement and just now in my young adulthood I'm starting to think I really should have. I have difficulty concentrating and my short term memory really sucks sometimes. I've tried all sorts of things; increasing sleep, changing my diet, getting exercise. Though all of those things improved my issues they haven't alleviated them, I continue to struggle.

I understand that medication isnt for everyone, and it shouldn't be. But medication shouldn't have a stigma attached to it, that just makes the process harder. I wish we had a more dependable system and more attention paid to mental health. We don't, unfortunately in the world we live in it's very important to be your own medical advocate. Dont let your message be "dont take drugs" let it be "dont take drugs if you don't need them" it's a world of difference.
User avatar #125 to #108 - OrionPax (03/30/2013) [-]
I completely understand your situation. I'm by no means saying that if a medication can help you shouldn't take it. My last statement was very vague, and I apologize. I was commenting on the fact that some people take Adderall just to get a high, or abuse drugs like it. Well prescribed, well used medication can save lives. I have a friend going through maniac depression who just recently started medication for it, and it has helped her immensely. I'm sorry that I wasn't more specific, and thank you for calling me on it. Best of luck to you and your mother.

Adderall is a strong narcotic made from amphetamines, the same stuff used to make meth which is a strong brain-altering drug. I'm surprised they haven't banned that crap. I've seen someone on Adderall and they were insane. It was scary.

Glad you lived through it. That stuff can have damaging permanent effects.

Super-rare side effect? No, it's not. There have been a lot of people coming forward to express mood-swings, anger, and thoughts suicide.

I'd suggest finding some natural remedies for concentration problems. I think certain foods can help with that. I think Pomegranates are one? I hear they're really healthy for you.

I was on asthma medicine as a child that made super hyperactive and fidgety.
My wonderful school self diagnosed me with ADHD and told my parents I should be put on Ritalin and that I will grow up to be a failure if I didn't.
My dad screamed at the lady that if you dare try to have my son diagnosed with any fake illness He will bring the school down.
He said that medicine will kill what will make nathan a great engineer or scientist.
I thank my parents all the time for that. They fought for my future where most parents would just give into the school and dope their kids up my parents told them no.
TL:dr My parents are awesome
User avatar #30 to #22 - HarvietheDinkle (03/30/2013) [-]
Part of the reason parents dope their kids up is because they cause problems for others.

example: I was a problem child. I was the stereotypical bully. Thing is, I didn't have self-esteem issues or anger issues or anything. I just liked beating kids up and stomping on them (I tended to do that a lot, even if they weren't in my line of travel) just because it was fun and I was bored.

ADHD might have not been the right diagnosis, but it did get me to calm down a bit. Now, I'm wondering - were you just fidgity on your own, or were you also a problem child?
User avatar #32 to #30 - natedizzie (03/30/2013) [-]
No I actually leveled out once I grew out of my asthma which was about 4th grade.

It's not a fake illness though. Maybe people are too quick to assume it's the problem, but it is real.
#73 to #43 - muffinssnuffims (03/30/2013) [-]
I doubt he meant that the illness itself is fake, just that the diagnosis was.

Either way, even though there is a balance between liking or being able to focus on the menial tasks and instead only being able to focus on things you like a lot and such, I think a lot of teachers and schools really fail to see that many individuals already have a good balance for success, and messing with it just to help their participation points grade (which is by and large ******** in 90 - 99% of cases there's a participation points grade).
