PonceAlyosha: Yeah, no shiat. We should regulate these harder than we regulate marijuana and alcohol due to the long term effects they have on young people's brains and behavior.
titwrench: I was recently prescribed Xanax. I don't want to take it anyone have any experiences with it?
Unimpressed Man: //didn't have desired effect on me
Bob Dolemite: so high school is causing the shortage?truth be told, the reality is that using these drugs is like cheating. this is no different than HGH in baseball, etc.

morgantx: I honestly have to wonder what kind of a society we're creating when children are feeling such an intense need to be perfect that they're taking drugs to STUDY.
Outlaw Thirds: Our society values the behaviors that the drugs promote. If our society wasn't so hypocritical, it wouldn't be controlled at all. HGH is much worse for the body (since it's an actual hormone that will confuse the endocrine system). Stims are probably worse for the mind, but mental health isn't as high a priority as, say grades.
Harry_Seldon: titwrench: I was recently prescribed Xanax. I don't want to take it anyone have any experiences with it?Highly addictive...To be avoided. Doctor will eventually tell you he will quit prescribing to you after making you an addict. It will also be your fault for being weak, and becoming dependent.

I am 29 and know plenty of people, including myself, who engaged in this behavior while we were teenagers and through college. The majority of us are well adjusted, responsible adults.Should be easier to get in my opinion that doesn't count for anything.
Jixa: FTFA - re: Concerta "Very difficult to crush into powder and snort, so it is popular among psychiatrists concerned a patient might abuse or sell it. It can provide a short-term boost and last up to 16 hours - drastically affecting sleep. No generic is available, so it can be more expensive."When did they write this? My son takes generic Concerta, and it's covered by Medicaid so it can't be incredibly expensive if it were they wouldn't cover it.
drew is pedal: That article is wrong, there is a generic available for Concerta, its Methylphenidate ER. The funny thing is that it is the exact same pill as Brand name, because of some lawsuit the manufacturer is forced to sell the stuff as a generic. I used to pay $45 for brand name and under the generic it only costs me $10 :)
