Whether it’s finishing a final or a financial model, distractions are at our fingertips. But what happens when you take too much Adderall to help complete the tasks? There have to be supplements better, right?
Locking in for a solid 60 minutes of productive work can be nearly impossible with notifications and alerts going off every minute.
These supplements are natural and can help realign your focus to knock out the next big task.
A new Netflix documentary about legalized stimulants like Adderall suggests that you be very careful when you Take Your Pills.
Legalized stimulants have become the new wave of staying ahead of the curve and have become a part of American academic culture.
At this point, nearly everyone has popped a legal stimulant as prescriptions saw a rapid increase in 2013. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention children diagnosed with ADHD saw a six percent increase from 1990.
In 1990, 600,000 children were on stimulants and in 2013 that number grew to 3.5 million. Look at it this way, if that many kids were on legal stimulants back in 2013, how many adults were on the pill?
QuintilesIMS, a company that gathers health-care-related data, says by 2012, roughly 16 million Adderall prescriptions were written for adults between the ages of 20 and 39.
Maybe there’s some kind of correlation between the release of Limitless, which came out mid-2011, and the spike in the ADHD drug. Everyone, lowkey, wanted to be Eddie Morra.
It doesn’t stop there. According to a review published in 2012 in the Journal Brain and Behavior, the off-label use of prescription stimulants had come to represent the second-most-common form of illicit drug use in college by 2004. The only drug beating out the legal amphetamine, Adderall, was marijuana.
Now in 2018, almost everyone is doing it but the side effects can be lethal, especially if you’re illegally self-prescribing yourself ADHD drugs. The dangers lie in the fact scientists and doctors still know very little about the long-term effects of legal amphetamines.
