: I'm not too sure why you don't want to go back on drugs, maybe ritalin was not the right choice for you.. I'm a 17 year-old high school student. Not quite a cop, but it sounds like i have the same kind of ADD.. you don't notice stuff that you REALLY, REALLy should, and it messes with your mind for so long. Just recently, I started taking a little drug called dexadrine. The results were amazing- after so long of having such a muddy view of the world, I now not only, you know, pay attention to my surrounding, and what I should be doing, but it also feels so pleasing to do just that, and be so responsive to everything. For five years now i haven't paid attention to school, and now that i'm on the dex, paying close attention actually feels good. If you're scared of your cop friends finding out or whatever that you have ADD, the only way they'll know is that you'll be much more responsive and they'll see it. DOn'tneed to tell them about our capsuled friend, just tell them you've been getting goood sleep.
: Dexadrine 4-ever
People, do you not know the side effects of Ritalin,ect.? There are better alternatives. Do some of your own research.
Try reading a few books, to start, that address the root of the problem: Smart Moves by Carla Hannaford,Ph.D.; Evolution's End by Joseph Chilton Pearce; The Drama Of the Gifted Child by Alice Miller. They have other great books as do other researchers.
There is MUCH info out there. Go get it. Don't rely on one source.
P.S. ADD/HD is NOT a Ritalin deficiency.
