Deterieting from nonstimulant treatment

Posted by rjlockhart04-08 on November 15, 2009, at 22:20:20

Here's the thing: i grew up on stimulants, 7th grade is started Ritilin and that didnt work much and I seriously don't rerember that time, it was around 1999-2000. Went to Adderall 10mg twice daily and that improved my grades that where failing because i just had no "concept" of social interaction and amphetamine "stablizes" or stimulates something that's not stimulated and my doctor want me to go have a SPECT scan, and see what medication should be used.

In highschool and collage around 2004-2005 where a time when I mistook them, which was a stupid descion that lead to this crisis. High school I took 30mg twice daily, then I went to 30mg XR twice daily because they just said it's more smoothe than the immidate release. This also why Dexedrine Spansules where very effective, yet I don't know if they would ever be considered again, i'm getting a hint their not but they where the "most" effective in treating socialization, getting me out of "isolation". My doctor is just very "hesitant" on medications that have "addiction potential" which is completely understandable, because there is a "risk" if you mistake them. And I would have to sign a document saying It's not their responsiblity yet these medications [stimulants] are the only effective treatment because I've taken Strattera, Currently on Bupropion in a diffrent relase form [wellbutrin], and clonodine, which just lowered blood pressure.

I don't know, see it's someone that is very close to me that does not approve of stimulants because in terms it was seen as an "addiction" yet I've tried to justify it in that taking it daily, how does it differ from taking other daily meds? the thing is.."abuse potential" and if it's ever considered again, I would take it from a pharmacy because I don't trust myself with impulse, or take from someone who will dispense it that is maybe a family member, because my mother will not.

In my work I do, i worked for my brother for a while and I took Dexedrine Spansules, the only reason that they where...he wrote a "final" last one and said go to "rehab' and then will work things out. Someone that lives with me never went back to him because she does not approve of it. The only thing is just taking this medication "correctly". And alot of times when your past the age of 18 years old, this medication is considered "speed", yet it anger's me that it's given to younger's and then they have problems with it later when they grow up.

That's all my say, please have some postive feedback and understand, but i will listen to your responses.
