My cousin has a pretty severe case of ADD, and trying to talk with him is like trying to watch TV with the remote constantly flipping channels.

If they have Adderal XR's I'll trade them all the cheez-its they want.
 
2014-06-19 08:04:42 AM
I would imagine that might be considered a fair trade in prison, so maybe the kid is just starting early.

Now his mother is suing the school arguing that her son was only handing out pills to help other students succeed.

Yeahhhhh. The lawyer who agreed to take this case should be disbarred.

ADD medication, when properly supervised, is but one tool in treating ADD.  Medications alone are usually not oh look a dog follow the doggy!

Is there a conversion chart for deals like this? Something like one adderal equals 12 cheezits, 12 cheezits equals 19 M&Ms, 19 M&Ms equals a hit of crack...?
 
2014-06-19 08:20:48 AM
I'm actually surprised the school didn't call the cops on the kid, rare moment of restraint on their part. But yeah, I'm gonna side with the school on this one.

Just wait until one of them figures out he can trade rare Pokemon or Magic cards for meds.

It's almost like giving powerful drugs to children is a bad idea.

I say we drop the medicine, let the kids who cant focus fail, and leave only the calm focused ones to enter the higher workforce. Let the add kids become rock stars and artists like in the past.

I didn't know ADD was still a thing, I thought everyone was just an assburger now...
 
2014-06-19 08:44:35 AM
Nothing new.... I was prescribed Ritalin as a kid. I hated the way it made me feel, so I sold it to others in school.
 
2014-06-19 08:49:40 AM
So what can I get for some Great Value brand "Real Cheese Crackers"?
 
2014-06-19 08:56:40 AM
Meh, ADD is why I'm a good worker. People try to tell me shiat that isn't important, and I wander away to do more work. I always have 5 or so things I'm working on. Medicating it just seems stupid to me--use it to your advantage!

I realize it's the parents at fault. I'm very grateful for the ones I was blessed with.
 
2014-06-19 09:06:19 AM
Typical trolly head line.Dude got multiple bags of cheese its, bags of other chips and $3.00

If that ain't ADD ballin then I don't know what is.

Trading 1 bag of cheese its for adderal = dumb ADD kid
trading multiple bags + $3.00 = ballin ADD kid

People WITH ADD describe it as having their mental remote constantly switching channels. That's essentially what the disease does.

There's that, but there's also the wondrous hyperfocus state that happens sometimes.

Umm, any potentially addictive medication my kids need like painkillers. I keep in My room, and give dispense to them. No parent should be giving a 15 year old a bottle of Adderall and tell them to be responsible. Kids screw up sometimes, and its not hard to overdose on a bottle if the kid chooses to be stupid that day.

I missed the part in the article that said the mother gave her son a bottle of medication to take to school. For fun I clicked the link that pointed to the original article and found this;

The boy's mother, A.K., claims the school knew her son has attention deficit disorder, as the school nurse dispensed him his medicine for it.
 
2014-06-19 10:02:51 AM
Why the fark did the kid have unsupervised access to his prescribed, controlled substance?

He should get a pill to take from his parents or the school nurse. He shouldn't be walking around with the bottle in his pocket.

Adderall is AWESOME!!!  It should NEVER be wasted on kids who aren't able to appreciate it.

What's not to like? It makes me feel good and keeps me productive while helping me lose weight.  The only way to improve on Adderall would be to make it and Adderall XR cheaper.

The only trick with Adderall is making sure you focus on the RIGHT thing. There have been a few times when I've taken the pill and spent the whole day organizing and tagging my MP3 collection instead of coding.

Has anyone else ever meditated while on Adderall?  It's.... Wow.  Just wow.

====

That said, I'm a little scared of the stuff. I don't take it every day, or even most days.

I'd probably be better off if I did.


This thread reminds me -- I got to find a new dealer psychiatrist who is loose with the Rx pad.  My old one suddenly left the practice.

The school needs a competent nurse,  not a nurse who just hands out pills to kids.  How hard can it be to make sure the kid swallows the pill?

I have ADD.  I take adderall twice a day, every day since I was able to get a Dr. visit thanks to insurance coverage.  It helps tremendously with dealing with my three-year-old.  Far, FAR more patient with her.  Easier to deal with her, thankfully rare, temper tantrums.

Without adderall, I often feel like I have my three-year-old's level of emotional control.  That is, wanting to scream and throw tantrums when she has a normal level of stubbornness and have to fight, sometimes loosing, to control the impulse to do so.  Or crying in frustration because of... (insert typical stubborn three-year-old action that "Mommie" doesn't want said three-year-old doing).

And let the kid walk out of the nurses office without swallowing it? Yeah, maybe he palmed it, but I doubt it. More likely the kid got it from home.

Luv you!

BTW, you forgot to leave the laundry basket out for me this morning.  That's a naughty Snuggums!  Remind me to give you a sound spanking later tonight when the kid is asleep  ;-)

=======================

Yeah, the Mrs. Is probably among the 10% or so of people who take Adderall who ACTUALLY have ADD.  It's pretty amusing watching somebody take a powerful stimulant and chill right out-- maybe even go have a nap.

Thanks for covering my wife, Obamacare!

The kid and I get health care through our tribe.  Most of the time the free service is awesome but sadly, the shrink that works at the tribe clinic has this crazy idea that you actually should have ADD before he lets you have a scrip for ADD meds.

My son was recently taken off Adderall and it was right after we got a large amount from the pharmacy. So we have close to 120 pills just sitting there. I should be taking it for my ADD. Not happening. I hated my Ritilin when I was a kid. Would sell if it I could.

Stopped by to mention that it is just kids being kids, but yours is way better.

If the parents are really that outraged (and not out for free cash) then watch the kid take his meds before/after school
 
2014-06-19 01:42:50 PM
Well for the 3 people that actually need speed to even function enough to drive to circle k, great.

Most of you speed freaks are just doctor conning pill abusers little better than your typical meth head.

Can't speak to Adderall, but I'm a fan of Concerta (Ritalin, more or less). Like you, I don't take everyday; usually skip weekends. I think that may actually help it stay effective, but I'm just guessing.

You're dead on about focusing on the right thing. I can be worse about wasting time on Fark with the pills, as it gets hard to tear away from anything. I sometimes find myself fidgety because I forget I need to pee.
