Limitless?

I have been doing my own reading on Provigil and Adderall. This is a great article (How I hacked my brain with Adderall: a cautionary tale), in my opinion, because I think we all know deep down that there is really always a trade-off with any drug (found it via waxy). There’s pretty much always some downside, whether it is something you can live with or not, is the real issue. Also, some of them will speed up your ultimate demise – either by increments of minutes – or instantaneously (i.e. overdose). So it’s really a matter of making sure you are comfortable with the reality of potentially harming yourself to the point of death, along with educating yourself so you know. I don’t mean this to be a rant about drugs, but I just wouldn’t want anyone harming themselves because of a stupid blog post. Great article, though, by Trent Wolbe. Some of the side affects are really scary – and also the issue that he brings up of the fact that little children are being prescribed something that causes all of these reactions is definitely disturbing. Are these children ever going to be able to get off of it?
