    Just curious how many members on this forum have experience with Adderall use and/or addiction. I honestly haven't touched the stuff in over 10 years, but these days they are saying it's basically prescription meth. Just curious what others might have to say about their experiences with it. I have never tried street meth, so I don't know if it's comparable to Adderall. I always felt that Adderall was some strange mix between cocaine and LSD.

    I haven't ever taken it, but I think it is widely used and abused on college campuses. People often need to study, and also want to stay slim so it is something that is widely used. It is also readily available, and people think they can stop whenever they want. so I can see how it has become a major issue.

    I have also heard these things, and I've even seen a few short documentaries on Youtube about this phenomenon amongst college kids. Thanks for the input, but still curious if anyone else here has personal experience with it.

    Out of curiosity, what made the experience similar to LSD? To me, Adderall feels very clean. It's more of a background stimulation that increases my focus and willingness to complete tasks. I also get light euphoria from it. The only annoying side effect that I get is an incredibly dry mouth, which is a common side effect from amphetamines.

    The way my body felt was similar, and sometimes it would cause me to hallucinate, but that was also no doubt in part due to the lack of sleep I was getting.

    I never tried it but I had three friends in high school that used Adderall a lot. They would snort it like it was cocaine. They said it gave them energy.
  7. Yup had it once during college when the stress levels were high and I needed something to motivate me to get through all those assignments. Again it is pretty effective if you want to take it once a while when the going gets tough, but not everyday.

    I am prescribed to adderrall and have also done Meth. a few times. They are alot alike as far as how they make you feel. You cant sleep, you feel happy, extra. I am now learning though that adderrall can also cause psychosis and delusions and make you feel things that arent there like meth does. It hasnt happened to me but its happening to my husband. You would think that prescription drugs would be safe. I mean adderrall is not made from sudafed, batteries, and things under a sink. My niece was shooting meth and ended up getting MRSA she almost died. She went through 3 surgeries because the infection was in her hip bone. I pray she will never do it again. I will not touch adderrall again after reading everything that I have today.

    I was prescribed adderrall and that is actually what led to my meth use. I wanted it and felt like i needed more. I am 23. Ive spent almost 7 yrs in prison because of drugs, if you are strong enough to stay away from it all then take advantage of that strength. There are a lot of people who struggle with staying away from that lifestyle, no matter how hard they try.

    Adderall is the only thing that keeps me from going back to cooking & using meth. I am seriously at my wits end trying to beat this stimulant addiction. It seems like I will never get out of it. Doctors are no help. They prescribed me Adderall after numerous anti depressants didn't work. If I don't have so.e sort of amphetamine I only sleep, cry & sleep more...

    @Ru y hi there. thanks for sharing. i'm sorry you are struggling to get off Adderall. have you thought of attending some sort of extended treatment center? maybe getting through the detox stage with some support might help and eventually you'd feel better.... i know it's challenging... and i wish there was something i could do to help...

    here if you just need to share...

    I currently will get some Adderall whenever it's available & I have the extra money.
    Technically Adderall is mixed amphetamine salts. Dexedrine is dextroamphetamine and Designs is methamphetamine.
    I also have used street methamphetamine. Its pretty good. As long as you can get some really cooked really well. I live in Florida. My best friend is from South Carolina. They have some decent meth. Personally I like to snort. I have tried smoking it, that's not really+ my thing. When snorting, that first bump or line will burn just enough to make your eye watc
