Misuse of Prescription Stimulants in Young Adults

In this video, Timothy Wilens, MD, chief of Mass General’s Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and co-director of the Center for Addiction Medicine, discusses his research into the misuse and diversion of prescription stimulant medications in young people. He notes patterns and prevalence of stimulant misuse and discusses why this is a matter of concern—10-15% of young people who are prescribed stimulant medication are diverting or misusing these medications and recent data has shown that stimulant use at a young age is predictive of substance use disorders later in life.

This video is about my personal experience taking adderall. I recognize that this drug does not effect every single person the same way. Please take what you need to hear from this video and disregard what does not apply to you. My intention in sharing this story is purely to shine light on to a problem that hundreds of thousands of people are struggling with.

“In 2012, over 116,000 people were admitted to rehab for an addiction to amphetamines like Adderall.” – found from https://www.addictioncenter.com/stimulants/adderall/

    Doctors take your word since there isnt scans or test for adhdadd or pain. STOP saying the doctors are at fault. Then arent putting a gun to your head on a daily basis to take the meds.

    Thank you for sharing your story with dealing with “stimulant use disorder” in the past.
    Your story is a common experience for many people who use these drugs without an ADHD diagnosis. This exemplifies why these prescriptions are a schedule II drug.
    For ppl who are properly clinical assessed & meet the diagnostic criteria for clinical ADHD, the drugs don’t give users a “high”. In contrast, it will either calm you down and/or allow the neural networks to function better by slowing the reuptake of dopamine and other neurotransmitters

    I drop everyday lmao

    Adderall is essentially legal meth. It should NOT be prescribed to anyone. I was addicted to stimulants for a number of years, adderall was a part of that mix.

    I rarely could get my daughter to take adderall without forcing it. She hates it so much it's hard to understand how someone else could become addicted to it. Her health provider switched her to Ritalin and we'll see how that goes, but I am more than eager for Cannabis to replace potentially deadly stimulants that us parents sre feeding to our children.

    Your 'Ganesha' T-shirt is cool.

  7. Cat Jansen Van Vuuren

    Wow!! Amazing! Thank you xxx

  8. Kael Hayes

    Adderall doesn't really affect me that much

  9. Myranda Hennis

    I'm on my friends phone and I used to do the almost the same thing that you did

    I took it for less than a month and I started losing touch with reality. I thought it was a chemical brought by the BORG to change brainwaves and the body to be receptive to BORG technology to assimilate humans into the BORG. It changes people. It takes people away from their Will. I thought the BORG were even transforming my physical world and changing the dimension I was experiencing. ADHD is a lie. It is the lithium in the chemtrails is what causes this supposed condition. Standford research indicates organic coffee reduces the effect of lithium from chemtrails.

    Thank you for sharing. That was brave.

  12. MrDegaldy
