I know a man who's been on ritilin for 30 years for ADD. I don't know if he takes other drugs. He has tics in his hands: he holds his hands and moves them like he's playing a Super Nintendo. He also "chews the cud" but way faster than what I've seen in people with Tardive Dyskinesia. I've always wonderd if he is damaged from the Ritilin. However, what you say about impurity of test subjects holds for him also (even though he's not a street meth user): he's been an alcoholic for decades. If I start ticing on the Adderall, I might have to add a blood pressure medicine (I forget the name...not Clonidine, something else). The doc said an "alpha blocker". I thought they used alpha *agonists* for tics. Hmm Hmm Hmm. Hopefully I won't have to add that.


ps. About weight loss...I hope I don't really lose weight on the Adderall. I could stand to lose some fat, but from what I've seen of people who've lost weight on stims, the stims seem to decrease a lot of muscle too. People who are skinny from stims always seem to have bad muscle tone. I'd rather just lose weight by eating a healthy diet and exercising!!
