no adderall!! - May 5th 2009, 03:33 AM

So, I lost my script for Adderall before i could fill it, and my dr. won't give me a new one without me giving him the old script because it's a controlled substance. Finals are coming up and i really need it... i'm thinking of trying to get a hold of some amphetamines illegally... I've never done that kind of thing before... how bad of an idea is this?



PM me any time, ok? I'm always here to help.

Bad. Especially since you've never done anything like it before. You don't know how it will affect you and it could completely screw up your testing. It's also highly addictive. I don't recommend it, but if you're going to get drugs from someone else, just get adderall instead of amphetamines. It's a lot more common. The ideal thing, if you haven't done it already, would be to talk to your doctor about the situation and see if you can work something out so that you have your own medication.

Ok.. Obtaining "illegal" "amphetamines". How does that sound to you? I watched a documentary on a kid who thought he needed adderall to do good on his ACTs and it turns out with or without the pills he got the same score. Depending on pills to get through a final or any other type of test is not only crippling to your mind and own self knowledge, but it's also cheating unless you need it for medical reasons.

....I do have a medical reason to take it, and its not cheating, good grief. when i take it it doesn't magically make me score 10% higher on tests. what it does is help me concentrate so a) i can study efficiently and b) so that i can finish the test on time.....

Still, I'd try to find the prescription. You never ever want to get anything illegally, because 1) it's illegal and even if you need it legitimately they will still punish you if you are caught, and 2) you can never trust someone who sells this stuff on the street, as it can be laced with something else even if they say it isn't. There are other ways to focus, and you may want to talk to your doctor about alternatives since he will not give you another prescription, like Ritalin or something.

That's exactly why I said it's cheating unless you have a medical reason for it. If you keep thinking you need it and keep freaking out over it you will do bad on your final. Just try it without it. Getting co dependent on a pill is never a good thing. It's not a big deal just study and take the test. I have an attention deficeit issue too and hell I never take my pill and still do good on my tests. You don't need to depend on a drug to help you do good on a test. There are other ways to help you focus. Jesus trying to obtaining an amphetamine is the worst thing you could do. It's just a final. Chill
